  Hiding Command Buttons on template
Posted by: kfly - 12-12-2018, 07:27 AM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (5)

I want to hide the Christmas SiriusXM command buttons on my template  if month isn't December.  
Any hint on the best and hopefully easiest way to hide these two command button if month (not equal)  "12"?

  Security cameras
Posted by: kjaerligkatt - 12-11-2018, 01:23 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (1)

What’s the recommended way to intergrate security cams into CQC?  I seem to remember a discussion  a while back about integration with some camera server, but cannot find it now. Maybe a dreamt that?

Also, any recommendations for both internal and external cameras, preferable wireless. 

The wife would go with Nest cams, but I just know that’s not going to be a good, or even supported option

  Can't find a rule/trigger
Posted by: IVB - 12-09-2018, 09:41 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (5)

I coded CQC to toggle a light whenever the F6 button is pressed on one of my Elk keypads. But, and yes this is embarrassing but not one of the top 100 stupid things I've done, I can't find where it would be.

There's no triggered event for it. I've scoured my list. Where else could I have set up an automated action like this?

Star Webriva for dummies
Posted by: rtarver - 12-08-2018, 04:08 PM - Forum: Installation/Configuration - Replies (3)

Despite my search efforts, I haven’t found a basic ‘how to’ for webriva. I recently did a clean install, and even bought the ctc iOS app. Is there a beginners how to for setting up the web server and defining default pages etc?

  Moving MS question
Posted by: IVB - 12-08-2018, 11:17 AM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (15)

To move a master serve, I just
1) stop CQC
2) copy CQC dir off
3) put CQC onto new machine
4) re-install CQC on new machine


I did that, it's picking up the old server name and not the new one. Odd. This is on my former 2ndary server, fwiw

  GetCurMillis immune to system time change?
Posted by: rbroders - 12-05-2018, 02:35 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (6)

My system time synced yesterday and the time jumped forward 4seconds.

This dinged my driver which uses Time.GetCurStamp() to calculate CommPort.ReadByte(, WaitFor) times.

If I modify my code to use GetCurMillis  to calculate WaitFor (careful not to get bitten by wrap-around).  Will I be immune to system time changes?

Thanks -- Bob

P.S.  I supposed it is possible that CommPort.ReadByte *itself* will not WaitFor the correct amount of time if there is a system time change, so maybe I'm wasting my time trying to fix this.  I have increased the frequency of time synchronization so hopefully less of a probably anyway...

  Basic Z Wave/CQC Integration Question
Posted by: MikeW - 12-04-2018, 10:34 PM - Forum: Installation/Configuration - Replies (6)

I've read through various Z Wave threads, but it's still not clear to me if what I want can be achieved. I have an old Lutron Homeworks system which has been integrated into CQC. There are few closets and bathrooms which don't have Lutron controlled switches. I just purchased the Smartthings v3 hub along with a couple Z Wave wall dimmers and plugs. I have this working pretty well and I use the Google Home App to control my Z Wave devices. My plan is to use a Google Home Hub to control these devices. What I really want is to have CQC detect when I press a button on a Homeworks keypad to turn on/off a lighting scene and then have CQC control the appropriate Z Wave switches so they can be included in the lighting scene. I'm sure there are other capabilities I'd like to use, but this is the minimum functionality I need. Does the new CQC Z Wave driver allow for this type of control when I still want to use the Smartthings Hub/Google Home Hub as my main lighting control?

  Know any mini-PCs, <50W, for a MS
Posted by: IVB - 12-03-2018, 07:57 PM - Forum: Installation/Configuration - Replies (22)

My MS is a VM, which can't access the USB port to run the Aeotec. My damn $200 mini-ITX can't run CQC as a master server. And it apparently has issues being a secondary server. I need to run the Aeotec for zWave, so I need a new MS.

But...I also want to put it in a location where I have very limited room. As in, I'd rather not have it physically be bigger than 7ish x 7ish x 1-2 inches. No mini towers.
And, I live in NorCal where power is expensive, so ideally <50W. I *could* go to 65W I guess but that seems a lot.

Struggling to find anything. I'd give up the power but it'll be hard to give up the size.

Used equipment is fine, i'd buy a new SSD since that's the most at-risk component.

Anyone know of anything? No desire to spend more than $500 as that seems crazy.

  Basic CML question
Posted by: lleo - 12-01-2018, 09:39 AM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (12)

I am dabbing my feet into CML and I am stuck on finding a simple solution for the following:

trying to use the [character count of a string] + 1 as index for extracting from another string...

I have something like:

index := string1.GetLength();


but how do I increase the resulting Card4 value of the .GetLength() instruction with 1 character's worth?

I am trying to avoid to append to string1 before getting its length as that is used than later on...
I know this is very basic but never learned the basics...

  Pause Command Seems to be Short
Posted by: kblagron - 11-30-2018, 11:16 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (1)

I just set up another motion detector using the Elk that, once triggered, turns on a couple of TV's to display the security cams. 

I use the pause() command in a several of the action commands to wait while the driver switches to analog TV, etc.  I also use it to wait while the cams are displayed before going back to whatever the TV was doing before.

What I noticed was, during the long pause - ie 800,000 millisecs while the video stream is being output to the TV, that it only goes for about 190,000 millisecs.  Is there a better way to do this?  

Essentially I want the TV to display the cams for about 10 minutes, then go back to what they were doing, either off, or the programming they were on.    It seems like the millisecs entered in the command is not the real time it pauses.
