Hari,

We're ordering some Danfoss RA Plus-w's for testing here... from memory I think you have got those working. Is that correct?

yes, they are automatically configured when included in SIS mode (they require SIS). It supports multiple setpoints for every weekday and requests a schedule, for now i just reply with an empty one as we have no way in lmce to define one.

It honors on and off (normal/setback operation). The wake up interval is a bit short at the moment, wanted to do some tests this heating period to find the optimum compromise between latency and battery drain.

When you've got yours we can do some fine tuning..

best regards,
Hari

Hari,

Great sounds good. We should have our units by next week I imagine.

All the best

yeah, I missed some code for that, it is now checked into the 0810 branch on svn. I will release a new binary version for 0710 these days after some polishing and when I've added multiple instances support for that HSM100 beast.
Thanks a lot for your help and your reactivity Hari, that's really great! I'm looking forward to test it  :)!
no multi instance yet but I wanted to provide you a test version with the fix for the merten dimmer floorplan updates, just tested, works fine:

http://vt100.at/files/ZWave-0.0.2-0710-32bit.bz2

I'd assume the same is needed for the binary switch, I don't have one yet. Do you have one?

best regards,
Hari

Hi Hari,

Many thanks for this release, it's working pretty nicely now  :P! I tested the dimmer and the binary switch, and both are sending the correct infos in the orbiter. Great job  :)! If you need some logs from the binary switch just tell me.

perfect, I was not sure about the binary. Yes, a few log lines for final QA would be nice.

Hari

I have a merten dimmer installed at the moment (thanks possy :-) ), I'm sure I can work that out this weekend.

Hari, any progress on the Merten stick? (Hopefully I did not miss an announcement!)
If you still need one, I could lend you mine for a while.

Cheers
Mark
I've received the dongle this week.

best regards,
Hari

Hi, do you have a 64bit version of the new ZWave binary as well..?.
On a general note: is using 64bit LMCE going to cause me more pain than gain..?..

good news, the creation of the open Z-Wave driver package is now included in the build process. 0810alpha has Z-Wave :-)

I was using the old driver with no issues until I moved my USB ZWave controller from my MD to my Core.  After that, it would stop working after about 2 days.  Only a full reboot of the Core would fix the problem.

So, I have installed the new driver today and so far everything seems to be working normally.  I will report back in a few days about whether this has fixed the problem.

you should see speed improvements. E.g. the fiire chief with multiple lamps in the same room now works much better.

Can you please explain why you think 64 bit is not as good as 32.
I will most probarbly do a reinstall shortly(system cannot find device-logfiles etc from webadmin so I have destroyed something) and are using "64 bit hw" and 64 lmce now so any input is interesting to know.

Also I wonder if I want to convert the 32bit driver you have done to suit 64 bit hardware. What process should I google? (compile?)

Still Very thankful(glad) for the help I got with the Connect hw selection.(it works!) but config is sometimes lost..
Best Regards
johan

to stay on topic: they should _not_ forget the config. Go and have them replaced.

the 32/64bit thing does not belong here.. there are other threads where the topic is discussed.

Ok, I will let the system run for a few days and evaluate. Could also just being me doing something wrongly maybe..
Sorry for the OT. was not sure how to treat it since it was related to the driver, will start another thread about that.  :)

edit. will not start another thread since I did more thourough searches on the matter and are now convinced to install the 32bit instead.
