ZWave sources
« on: November 18, 2007, 04:51:29 pm »
Hi all,

i can't find the ZWave sources in the trunk (neither LMCE nor pluto). Has anybody seen them?

best regards,
Hari

From the looks of things, they are located under LinuxMCE-1.1-SRC/src/ZWave in the source tarball.  I don't know about SVN though.

Zaerc is right  The sources are in the latest ones that I'm using off of the LMCE SVN/TRAC server at svn.charonmedia.org

Hari:
Are you looking into revisions of the ZWave package? Its pretty old and doesn't support the latest revs of the ZWave protocol. It also has some annoying bugs (like dropping ZWave devices if there is a gap and reinstalling them). And still only support for the obsolete and rare Homepro USB_ZWave interface and the even more rare Boca USB-ZWave interface.
The real problem is finding drivers for the other's USB interfaces that work in Linux. If someone can find a Linux driver for the chip in the Intermatic or the Cooper or the Wayne Dalton we can make them work, but up until now no one has a Linux driver that works with those. I can provide details on the chips in them if anyone is interested.

Wasn't Pluto looking in to supporting the ZCU101 (the sucessor the ZCU000)?  I'll see if I can get more info on that.

The ZCU201 will be supported I am pretty sure. We are going to be working with one of the pluto devs on that in the next 10 days or so.

i just stumbled around the sources to get my head free of sqlCVS ;) wanted to see how the old revision is implemented. I thought about getting a ZCU201 with homeseer or the likes and sniff the serial communications after the usb to serial converter..

It seems that MH users are dealing with similar problem, but maybe with different controller ?

I've  written pretty dirty coded LMCE driver for my home automation system in Perl, so once you know protocol, it's much easier....

HTH,

I just ordered the Leviton controller. Unlike the others it uses RS232 so interfacing it should be easy. The core problem with the others is the USB interface thats not supported in Linux. The Wayne Dalton uses a silabs chip. This Dev kit is on their web site: http://www.silabs.com/tgwWebApp/public/web_content/products/Microcontrollers/USB/en/mcu_vcp.htm and it may work for their modules. I don't have an Intermatic module (mine was stolen) so I can't help there. I'll be bugging  the Pluto guys who wrote the original code about this as well.
