Lutron Homeworks support
« on: December 28, 2005, 08:23:45 pm »
Hi all - I do have a full Lutron Homeworks installation for the lightning control at my location and I am quite keen in deploying a full Pluto solution for controlling all devices (lighting, A/V, IR control, motion, smoke, etc.)

I would very much appreciate your input on this and if anyone has already deployed Pluto in co-op with Lutron, then I would be interested to hear about it!

Thanks guys!

Lutron Homeworks support

As far as I know we don't support Lutron yet. Yes I can see 2 DeviceTemplates for Lutron but i could not locate any code  that actually will do anything (but maybe I looked in the wrong place :roll:  ).

I'm not familliar with the device (I don't have one, i only searched on google) but it looks like it can be controlled via serial port.
In this case you can implement it by yourself as a Generic_Serial_Device.
All you need is a documentation for the device, a little knowledge of Ruby programming language and some time to kill.

- Create a new device template, specify that it's a GSD device
- Add Device_Data you thinkyou'll need to controll it.
- Add commands you think you'll need to controll it.
- Create a new device under CORE with that device template.
- Goto Wizard->Devices->GSD and start to edit ruby code for the commands.

For more information on how to write code for GSD device, please search the forum.
