Users / Re: Alarm How TO
« on: September 20, 2014, 04:49:31 am »
I would like to get my home alarm system integrated into linuxmce.  The system I have now was here when I moved in and the existing panel does not appear to be capable of much.  Can I simply replace my existing panel with a new one that works well with linuxmce?  I've have no experience with alarm systems...

If I look at the Security Interface device templates I see GE Interlogix, Generic Security Panel, and Z Wave embedded security interface.  Does that mean Interlogix or ZWave is the way to go? 

I would like for linuxmce to be able to see the status of the existing door/window sensors in the house, and I would like the ability to arm/disarm the system from an orbiter.

Any advice would be much appreciated.  I can't seem to find much information on this topic searching the wiki or forums.

I used  /usr/pluto/bin/UpdateEntArea -e XX

I did not add a squeezebox or any MD.

media scenarios were indeed created, but none of them work.  None of my media devices respond in any way.  I have both IR controlled devices as well as an RS232 receiver.  None of them respond in any way...

After clicking on one of the media scenarios, the orbiter locks up for a couple seconds, then returns back to the same screen and does not show any different status on the screen.  I do not get transferred to the remote control interface on the orbiter as occurs when things are working as they should.  Also, the selected device does not appear in the leftmost box as occurs when things function normally.

Is adding a squeezebox or a MD the only way to get this working?

Is there any useful feedback I can provide?

That didn't work.  800x600 is the same as 1024x600, rooms are missing on both.  I attached images of the 720p resolution vs 1024x600 vs 800x600 if that helps at all.

I'm happy to try any other ideas if there are any.

In the meantime looks like 4 rooms are gonna hit the chopping block so I can squeeze them all in.

I was kinda hoping for something better than that :)

all the rooms are displayed on the rest of my android orbiters, but the rest of them have 720p resolution...

I suppose I'll start deciding what I want to chop out if that is the only option :)

thanks

Users / Android Touch Orbiter - Locations view
« on: September 14, 2014, 06:30:34 pm »
I am running the touch orbiter on android 4.2.2 with 1024x600

The locations view does not show a complete list of my rooms.  The list gets cut off and the bottom part of my alphabetical listing is not displayed.  There is no way to scroll down to see the missing rooms.  Is there any way to get them all in the view?

I am playing around with a couple of these and I have gotten them working well as a motion sensor.

I have not been able to get the temperature, light-level, humidity sensors to provide any information. 

From this post it seems that temperature and motion work, but not light level

http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=11674.0

I placed the temperature sensor on my floor plan and I see the thermometer on my floor plan.  I can select it and it displays the name "temperature sensor", but it does not show what the current temperature is.

If I open the climate section of the web admin, and open the advanced page of the temperature sensor, "state" and "status" are blank...

In the advanced zwave page the device usually appears as a yellow dot, status = "ok" , awake = "No"

This behavior also exists on 1004.  I just did a fresh 1004 install and replicated the setup and no media scenarios were generated.

I was just curious to see if anyone was interested in trying to make this functional.  I would be happy to provide feedback on any LMCE release, whichever one is most attractive for others to collaborate on.

This issue came up in another post I had

http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=13430.45

The inability to get media scenarios for entertainment areas that have not been configured with an MD. 

If anyone is interested in helping me get this to work properly I'd be happy to assist in any way I can. 

I have a fresh install of the latest 1404 dvd image with an entertainment area set up that has a TV, receiver, a cable box, and a dvd player.  No scenarios are generated, so it seems the issue still persists in 1404.  This exact setup worked perfectly with a 1204 install when I set it up using an MD, and then after setup removing the MD. 

I can provide any logs, and perform any experiments anyone would like on this setup.  I can also provide remote access to this set up if anyone wants to help me investigate the issue and fix it.

deleting the EAs didn't work, they get automatically recreated after a router reload

my solution was to remove the qorbiter Room assignment.  that got the behavior I wanted.

I am running 12.04, and the lights I have assigned to Outdoor rooms are automatically turning on/off at sunset/sunrise just as this post indicates.

Is the only solution still to remove any lights I don't want this behavior for from Outside rooms?

I don't even see an advanced section in my timed events.

Advanced->Configuration->Events seems to take me to an Advanced Events section but I do not see any existing events in there...

Has the ability to even see these automatically generated scenarios been removed?

I'm running an non-updated install of LMCE-1204-20140629142129165.iso

The main reason I included the web orbiter shots was to demonstrate that whatever setting up the qorbiter did to my room list was visibile on the web orbiters as well.  The admin web interface looks fine though.  There my list of rooms is exactly as it should be with no device numbers substituted in for the room names and no duplicate rooms....

any advice on making the web interface for "advanced zwave" more usable?  The way the page loads for me now I can't even see most of the nodes unless I remove the blocking elements using "inspect element" in chrome.  This is quite a chore as there are many elements (one for each node) and I have to get rid of them 1 by 1.

Users / adding a qorbiter messed up my rooms
« on: August 22, 2014, 12:22:43 am »
I attempted to add my first qorbiter today and made quite a mess.  The first one I added was device 73. I thought perhaps the reason it wasn't looking good was something I did wrong in the setup, so I deleted it and created another which was device 77.  It was just as bad as the first.  The display on my android phone is not very nice at all.  Is there a better skin I should be using? 

I now have two rooms in my room list which correspond to my home theater room.  These rooms are listed as 73 and 77, not by the name "home theater" which is what used to be in my room list.  "home theater" is now gone.  That is the room I assigned both of my qorbiters to.  I am attaching screenshots both of my android phone and of a web orbiter to illustrate.

Also noticeable in the android screenshots is that all of the rooms have a "0" after their name, with the exception of closet/storage (which shouldn't even show up in the list at all because I checked the "Don't show room on orbiters" box, it doesn't show up on the web orbiter room list as can be seen in the screenshots)

If anyone can help me get things back to the way they used to be it would be much appreciated. 

I would very much like to use qorbiter, but the initial experience has not been good.  Navigating the room list is especially annoying because when I am trying to scroll up/down it winds up scrolling left/right.  It usually takes me a few touches at the screen to successfully get it to scroll up/down.  It would be nice if left/right scroll were not even possible in the room list....
