standard control objects / more advanced functions?
« on: June 11, 2008, 12:24:30 pm »
Dear all,

I'm still planning my new system...

I think I have a problem with the scriptless operation of LinuxMCE: how do I control X10-sunblinds with the input of a 1wire weatherstation?

I want the blinds to go down automaticly when sun is shining and room temperature is above the set point, but not in heavy wind.

Thanks,
Will

Events can be triggered based on a nested criteria system, so you can set up the conditions you describe...

basically, your 1-wire sensor will need to output a discrete value that you can track. But basically you would set an event so that when the sensor reached a certain point, it would trigger the contact closure on the blinds (using a GC100 or whatever to control the blinds) ... look at Advanced > Events to get an idea of what you can respond to.

ok thanks, that is good news,

one more question: I do not want to lower the blinds every time the sun comes through, how can I configure that the sun has to shine eg. 10 minutes before lowering without processing power in the 1wire bus?

I'm thinking something clever could be done with the DCERouter's delay command...but not sure.
