  Jandy AquaLink RS Driver Available for Testing
Posted by: jscheller - 08-14-2006, 08:40 PM - Forum: Installation/Configuration - Replies (14)

Hi All -

I've attached here a driver pack for the Jandy AquaLink RS series of pool controllers. This driver should control all 15 models of the controller described in the AquaLink serial adapter guide, but I've only tested with the RS-8 Combo controller (model 6520) I have here so feedback would be appreciated. You need to get the AquaLink Serial (Generic/PHASTLink) adapter and connect it either directly to the controller or one of the AquaLink keypads to use this driver.

The documentation for the driver is attached...

I'll monitor this thread for any questions or problems.

  myHomeCookingPC.com (recipe mgmt system) thread
Posted by: IVB - 08-14-2006, 06:39 PM - Forum: General Automation - Replies (74)

Starting a clean thread to discuss architectural thoughts/options for the recipe mgmt system as i'm asking some of my developer buddies to chime in here with their thoughts, and the current thread doesn't seriously address this until page 7.

As discussed previously in the Grocery Inventory thread, i'm in the midst of home-growing a recipe mgmt system as I can't find anything out there that will both meet my UI needs as well as be an open ODBC cxn to allow CQC to retrieve & display data on touchscreens/laptops in the kitchen for while we're cooking.

I'll update the schema as per some of the suggestions in the other thread, but based on some additional info from my buddies, one of the first decisions to be explicitly made is "what am I/we trying to do here, and is distribution/publication really needed".

The issue here is one of access of the admin screens from any PC in the house. This will probably not be done via CQC, rather CQC can be used as the read-only mechanism. We'll probably want to use tightly controlled screens for data entry, so as to be able to enforce any business rules we want.

The problem i'm running into is difficulty and heavyweight setup:
1) With fat client setups like the java app i'm in the midst of writing is that the app will need to reside on every PC, and mySQL or PostgreSQL will need to be on one of the boxes. That's not necessarily a simple setup.
2) With a thin client setup, apache will be needed, adding to the complexity even further
3) Will take some time to write.

The pro is that with a fat client, i can have a pretty rich UI.

Got some strong recommendations to look into a hosted solution, can certainly be ad-free and have as clean a UI as we decide. Furthermore, a connection may be possible, i'm posting this thread as a common location for all my developer buddies to post as well as get input from you guys.

The pro to this is that I can use a pre-written framework, such as Ruby on Rails, which will drastically cut setup/maintenance time. Even though mySQL and Apache are still needed, it would only be done once on the website. I'd have to figure out how to setup a CQC driver to point at a website and ODBC in [not even sure that's possible].

The con is that, well, it's a hosted solution, you need a live cxn to the internet for this. Given that you already need one for the weather.com driver and the metadata [in V2.0], i don't see that as a dealbreaker.

So the question to all here is this: Can you foresee any issues with me pursuing a hosted solution so I don't have to deal with any setup issues?

BTW, for bph, this certainly changes the nature of the schema as I certainly cannot pursue a non-int primary key field anymore, and will need to add a users and groups table starting from V0.1 .

  Squintz Web Server

The code is in text format: squintz.txt

I have been working on my personal CQC web site and figured I would post some screen shots, a link and some code here for all of you to look at. I have been doing this site about 30 minutes a day for about a week while learning as I go. The actually process to create a site like this is not very hard. In fact its pretty easy. I first created a layout in Dreamweaver and then copied an pasted the HTML into the CQC Macro Workshop. I had to change all of the double quotes in the attributes into single quotes for it to compile. Then I just use the CML language to create a TextOutStream with all of the HTML and added some addition CML code to fill in the data and images and WAH-LA! I have the start of a decent working web site.

So far I am only displaying data and dynamically generating the pages. I have not added any control of my house since I have not yet looked into how to manage the security side of that. It should be pretty easy but my BetaBrite sign just showed up and I want to play with creating a driver for that for a while. Maybe when all is done you could leave me messages on my betabrite LED sign from my guest site. Now that would be fun.

So here is the home page:

  Status Screen
Posted by: noshali - 08-11-2006, 10:50 AM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (10)

Has anyone done the following:

A status screen that incorporates everything including security lights etc. on a main page sort of a thing.

For e.g. I have a template for security and one for lights.

Now if I am on the security template or on the main template and one of the zones goes off or a light goes off then there is no way for me to find out....what I am trying to achieve is have a template that is a sort of the house is ALL GOOD that I can view before going to sleep.

I don't want to have each zone listed and all the lights or all the devices on one page.....more like a small box/widget that is linked to all the zones in ELK and when any of the zones gets violated only that one shows rather than the status of all the zone to better use the screen real estate.

Thanks & Regards,

  NetCallerID modem
Posted by: IVB - 08-11-2006, 10:30 AM - Forum: Installation/Configuration - Replies (108)

Ok, probably a waste, got sick of buying random modems that aren't actually working the CID driver.

Bought one of these, figured i'd take a crack at writing a driver for it. Cheap enough, $10 plus $6 shipping.

Actually, i bought 2 cuz in case there's an issue, plus i'm sure one of youse guys would want it.

  Same Device - New Driver
Posted by: frankdr - 08-10-2006, 10:31 AM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (6)

I have a serial Elk Driver set up right now. I just received the Ethernet card and want to change over to use it. What is the best way to do that?

I have many views set up based on the driver name, so i don't want to redo all that work. If I remove and install with the same name, am I ok or is there a better way to do it?
