Installation issues / Re: Philips Hue on 1404
« on: July 22, 2016, 11:57:58 pm »
Just saw this. sounds like the username isnt getting set...

Using the webadmin a couple questions
*is the device data for username in there?
*does it have the right ip address?

Thanks Golgoj.. webadmin did showed the right ip, but username was not.  So I tried to add the user, just to play with the info found previously posted.

I was able very easy to generate a new user but I got the same results, so something else is missing. Im sure there is something missing but well.. this is part of the game!!.  Se attached image of user generated.  I copied the same username created, quick reload but no new results.  What about the password do I need to fill something there?

Hello to all,

Here is an update.. i was looking around and found this link, which let me to understand that maybe the issue was that there is no user name at all as soon as you start the box, so On the app on the android there is an option to connect to the hue bridge, this way it will create the user, for this example I used my account and press the link key.  With that... on the orbiter prompt that new hardware found and needed a reload.

Now at least I have something on the error log

1   07/19/16 20:55:42   /usr/pluto/bin/ 117 (spawning-device)   5928 Dev: 117; Already Running list: 15,16,17,18,32,45,111,116,20,25,21,24,22,28,

1   07/19/16 20:55:42   117 (spawning-device)   Found /usr/pluto/bin/HueController

Ill start playing with this and see if I can find the way to figure out which is the valid username.



Installation issues / Philips Hue on 1404

Hello to all,

I just got the Philips Hue starter kit and start messing it around!.  LMCE detected it automatically but I havent find the way to make it recognize the configured bulbs.
On the wiki, says step by step how to get it to work.  I look on the forums and no one have mention anything about Philips hue in a while so Let see if we can get it working
Step 1: Connect it, and wait in the orbiter for auto detection....Check!
Step 2: Go to advance and look at the logs.  I have an error that the error log cannot be found!.  So I cannot view the user issue
Step 3:  I though.. what could go wrong....... lets just Press the ink-button on the Hue-Bridge and see what happens... and nothing happens! hahahahaha.

So that is where i´m standing.!  Any hints on why there is no error log? or how to setup a proper user and password to access the hue bridge?
This is the bridge that is square.. i believe is v2.

Working on the cleaner ui portion next.
hi Golgoj4, that looks awesome!! how did you got the videos running on the orbiter? or the device not the media director???.
When you make the update, does the app of the android device has to be updated too? or only the core?

I have a Denon amp in my living room and there are no issues.  A volume change command does not typically rely on a specific origin or destination it is simply a command.  If you can provide logs from another orbiter working and the qorbiter not working then we may be able to begin looking at why....   but again, it works here.

mhm, that is an 'Orbiter' setting that is not likely yet included in qOrbiters logic.

Hi Phenigma, which log files would show the information needed?.  If I try the media director or the web orbiter, both works ok, but nothing happens using the qorbiter

Im trying to use more often the qorbiter.  On a Samsung S6 the app is still working ok, there are some options that are not working. 
1.  Volume: On the media director that is connected to a DENON, it does not change the volume
2.  Queue instead of instant play does not work.

Hi, Sorry I haven't check it out just yet, I've been messing a little bit with zwave stuff.  In order to test it, do I need to update the app at the phone?
Also I was testing it some time ago and I forgot to mention that volume buttons does not work, maybe it is my setup (TV + DENON RECEIVER).  Controlling volume within the media director orbiter works ok,  test it via web orbiter and also works.

Ok guys,

Issue created within GIT, assigned to sambuca.
Sambuca, please let me know on anything you need to help you out.

both are irrelevant afaict. This is a new *ZWave* device. It must be known to our ZWave stack, as LinuxMCE already knows about motion detectors. If I were in your shoes, I would create an issue on make a note of all the information you have, and assign it to sambuca.
Hi Posde, I have created the issue (mistakenly I created a project  :-X), but now that finally understanding a little bit better the git interface, i´m unable to assign it to sambuca, I guess ill assign it to me for now.

Ok, i got the motion sensor of my HSM100 sensor working.
This is what i had to do:

First i deleted the Motion Detector #54 DT, that i added, from the tree.
Then i did a reload and added the Motion Detector #54 DT again.
After this, i did another reload, this one is not mentioned in the wiki, but as far as i can tell at the moment, this is the one thats important, because as far as i know, when doing a reload, all DT's and child DT's get properly read again.
After this i did a sudo killall ZWave to restart the ZWave device.
Then i opened the Advanced ZWave page in webadmin, looked up the device and opened its Associations tab.
I had to set a association from the group motion to the controller node 1, this was not done automatically.
This is necessary, because only when set, the controller gets motion events.

Did another reload and a bit of rule #1 and voila, everything in working order.
Hope this helps you too,


EDIT: i updated the wiki with the above info.

Thanks Raymond,  I would like to help to make this devices PNP so it is more easy for non guru as me to get more out of LMCE for less effort.  In the mean time I might give it a try  8)

Thanks Posde!  How can I sign in to the git site, is it the same as this forum?  I may have to create more issues to more unknown Zwave devices like the KWIKSET lock, already got one, first alert smoke carbon monoxide alarm and a zwave sounder WA105BDZ.

Can you please provide update on your experience. I am planning to go for z-wave stick gen5 route and probably add some dimmer switches and more.

I am also on 14.04 install.

Hi Theteju,
No much luck so far due to I cant find detail documentation on the ZWN-BPC.  I would like to know which "# number" does what so I can make a new device.

If you go the 14.04 and zstick Gen5 you will be ok.
I have up and running.
4 leviton vrcs2-mrz , Many dimmers and single switches, 1 3way configuration etc, etc. 
Total of 25 zway switches.

If any one have a hint on how to make a new device.. Im all ears.

Dear All,

Im trying to get this zwave motion sensor to work but no luck so far.  I am able to add it to the network without any issues.
It gets detected as a generic sensor.  First try was to delete it and use the same port detected and add it again as Device Template #54, following this  procedure, still I believe the template might now be correct.

Here Is what I have:
LMCE 1404
zstick gen5

What is on advance zwave:
Unknown: id=011a

Unknown: type=0601, id=0901

I will continue searching on data online to see if I'm able to get it to work and continue posting as I Go.
Ill probably start adding more post for more test that are on the queue, the will be the same subject form but different device.  Next coming up is (WA105DBZ Z-wave sounder, KWIKSET z-wave lock)

Hi to all,

Here is some feedback.  Im running 1404 since a couple of days now and qt5 on a Samsung s6 is working ok.  Just a couple of buttons that dont do what they are supposed to.
Listed right below:

Power: it only have: Power off display, Power off MD, Reboot Core, Reboot MD.  There is no POWER ON.  POWER OFF DISPLAY works, POWER OFF MD doesn't.  I did not tested the other two!  It could have cause caos in the family

VIDEO: It does not have the ALL button, so if you dont have properly setup your DB, it will be impossible to find your files, but right I get nothing.  None of the movies are showing, not even the public.  If I start the movie on the MD orbiter, then I can control it on the QT5 orbiter on the phone without problems.

Any ideas?
