  New z-wave
Posted by: Ron Haley - 06-25-2019, 11:15 AM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (4)

First go at z-wave!
Now that I've moved to 5.4, want to try out z-wave.  Purchased the Aeotec Gen5 Z-stick, have  connected it to the CQC driver, and manually connected a ZW100-a Aeotec Multi sensor by removing the stick from the usb port and going through the suggested procedure.
Where to go from here?  Put the stick back in usb port and the lights on the stick flashing red blue yellow.  CQC driver connected, InZWNetwork false, NewConfig false.  Not sure how to put stick in replication mode or add top a network.
Do I need external software to complete the process?

  5.5 Beta Discussions Thread

5.4 is out, so any beta types discussions now should be in the context of the 5.5 release. Though of course some of the things that might come up here may be addressed in some 5.4.x followup releases. More to follow, just getting the new threads created and the old ones closed and unstuck.

This thread is not for discussion, so please don't post here. It is for official 5.5 beta release information. There is a separate sticky thread for discussion.

To get across the 5.3.903 boundary (which introduced some significant internal plumbing changes) you have to first be on 5.3.2 or beyond, so upgrade to one of those first, then you can take the next step to the latest beta.


Latest Version: 5.4.900
Confidence Level: 95

Any recommendation for naming conventions for User specific Scheduled and Triggered items?

  Windows 10 v1903 Release - Let's discuss here
Posted by: batwater - 06-20-2019, 01:27 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (4)

Has anyone installed the 1903 release?  I just received a notice on my update page for my master server that it's available but "my device" is not quite ready for it yet and Microsoft will let me know when the install is ready.

Let's use this thread to discuss the 1903 update.

  Scheduled Events & Variables
Posted by: gReatAutomation - 06-20-2019, 01:00 PM - Forum: Installation/Configuration - Replies (2)

In the context of scheduled events is there a way to create a variable that I can set once and then use with a myriad of scheduled events?

For example, I'd like to set my cell phone number once then reference it wherever I need to reference it in multiple scheduled events.

  Question on Parsing a String in a CML Macro
Posted by: kblagron - 06-18-2019, 05:08 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (2)

I am playing with the Native Echo Smarthome Skill, and had a question on the best way to do this.

I have the following text string:  "{'channel': {'number': '100'}, 'channelMetadata': {}}"

I want to save the number shown (100) into a variable and discard the rest.  What would be the best recommended way to do so in a CML Macro?  I know I can do some splits, strips, and indexes and get to it in 4  or 5 commands, but was curious is there an easier way to capture that?  The Starting point will always be the same, but the number could be 1, 2, or 3 digits long.

  OpenWeatherMap Docs
Posted by: Ron Haley - 06-18-2019, 07:52 AM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (2)

Driver install refers me to the documentation for the location format, but in going to docs/drivers, no mention of the new driver.  

It would also be nice to be able to copy/paste the api key Smile

  WHDTS SIM800C GSM Module
Posted by: gReatAutomation - 06-18-2019, 05:22 AM - Forum: Installation/Configuration - Replies (7)

Purchased this WHDTS SIM800C GSM module to try out with the CQC SMS driver. I've compiled links and other stuff from the Amazon and the web that may be useful when using this module. The module also as a BlueTooth chip.

While I like the ability to send email alerts and can email an SMS to my phone (e.g., NUMBER@txt.att.net) I want something more reliable and fast. You'll need an active SIM card for this unit to work.

  1. Plug in unit
  2. Install CH340 driver (if required)
  3. Install Termite
  4. Run Termite
[Image: Screen-Shot-2019-06-18-at-09-03-18.jpg]

  1. Configure baud rate to 9600
  2. Change COM port to which ever COM port into which the unit is installed
  3. Plugins are available at bottom right. Double click a plugin to configure
Note: If you want to run Termite after you install the CQC SMS driver, you have to stop both the App Shell Service and the Client Service, otherwise you will receive an error in Termite
