  New Sonos amp
Posted by: Dean Roddey - 08-29-2018, 01:22 PM - Forum: General Automation - Replies (3)

So it will be early next year apparently before it arrives, but Sonos has a new 'amp', aka a streaming media manager, that has a full featured, fully documented, open API. So that sounds like it will be a good step forward from the current Sonos boxes in terms of integration, with their cryptic, undocumented and unsupported UPnP API. And that means that, whatever might happen with the current boxes, there is a route forward with Sonos and automation (assuming that all of this comes to pass, but they've already showed it at some shows, so it's not just an idea on a white board apparently.)

If starting fresh, what is the best garage door system to go with to work with CQC? That would support position reporting, etc...

Thank you

  WebRiva and vpscale=?
Posted by: kblagron - 08-28-2018, 07:39 AM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (1)


Finally got around to checking this out, and the vpscale does work on Android, but not quite like the documentation shows in 5.3.2, at least from what I can tell.

My templates are 1280 x 768, and I have a Samsung S8, which provides 2,960 x 1,440.  In the documentation is is saying to put 2 if you want the screen adjusted twice as big in each direction.  However I am having to do the opposite - If I put in 0.44, it will adjust the 1280 x 768 templates perfectly on the S8.

Also, if you're using Chrome, you have to turn on airplane mode and save the current URL to the Home Screen if you want an Icon that goes directly to WebRiva and have it show up without the menus.  This has been documented elsewhere, but for whatever reason, if you are connected to the internet, Google won't save the username/pw info.  Once you save it, then turn off airplane mode, and it works great.

  Need some help with DynamicOverLoad command
Posted by: adamalli - 08-24-2018, 12:47 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (14)

So I have finally decided to make an interface and use the webRiva capability. I have not made screens before so this is all new to me. I have been watching some of the videos which have been really helpful. 

A problem I am running into is trying to create a list of all the light switches in my house. I am using an overlay that onload uses the DynamicOverLoad function with variables for the field list and names.  Below is overlay onload action


LightList:Big GrinynamicOverLoad

The error I get is this
08/24 16:34:54-LAPTOP-V167N9IC, CQCIntfView, CQCRunActionThread6
    CQCKit, CQCKit_ThisFacility.cpp.653, Failed/Data Format, Error: 6257/0/0
    Token expansion failed during command processing. Reason: Variable LVar:Fields was not found
      <CQCIntfView> CQCIntfEng_ActEngine.cpp - 742
      <CQCIntfView> CQCIntfEng_View.cpp - 6155
      <CQCIntfView> CQCIntfEng_View.cpp - 3172


The weird thing is if I replace all the references to my UPB lighting driver with my HUE lighting driver everything works as expected. Though I do get the same error if try to get a list of my security zones from my elk driver.

I assume I missing something here being new at this.

Any help would be appreciated

  HTTP Get driver not working
Posted by: znelbok - 08-24-2018, 11:39 AM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (10)

I am working on a remote system.  Just adding a simple IFTTT command for the HTTp Get driver.

I use the url


It learns OK and the commands are


    P3=IFTTT : %(LVar:Test)....

Just something really simple, get the calue assigned to cmd and put it into the logs.

For some reason it does not work.  All I get is
IFTTT : ....

For some reason its not getting the token and assigning it to the local variable.

So I tried it on my system - just copied and pasted everything - only changing the IP address for my server and it works fine and I get the value assigned to cmd in the log file.

Both systems are at version 5.3.2.

Any ideas on whats going on - what I missed?

  Admin Client over VPN
Posted by: batwater - 08-18-2018, 12:22 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (1)

Has anyone gotten the Admin Client to work over a VPN connection?  Due to the win 10 networking but/issue thingy I have localhost set to the IP addresses of my Master Server and other servers however when I connect via VPN CQC Admin Client will not connect to the Master Server. 

Sure I can RDP to a machine on my network but if that works then CQC should be able to connect as well...

  The Latte Panda again
Posted by: Dean Roddey - 08-13-2018, 05:57 AM - Forum: General Automation - Replies (2)

I know this has been brought up before, but just in case some folks didn't see that. This little single board computer has Windows 10 pre-installed on it and it comes with a small touch screen. And it also has I/O as well, so it could be used to control some things in its vicinity that use such an interface.


It just wants for a nice enclosure for an inexpensive wall mountable touch screen unit that is very low consumption.

  ISY-994i / ZWave / Smartthings
Posted by: kblagron - 08-08-2018, 05:49 PM - Forum: General Automation - Replies (1)

Hopefully someone could point me in the right direction on this, as I am getting a bit lost on how all this works.  I currently have an ISY-994i with Zwave.  I was wanting to start looking into door locks, ceiling fan control, and a few other things that Zwave controls better or easier than Insteon/ISY, but maybe I am wrong.

Would a Smartthings controller help me with my CQC setup and what I can control?.  I would like to do it both from touchscreen IV's and Echo.  Maybe I don't need Smarthings controller at all, and there is something better out there to look at.

Any help or comments appreciated.

  Can't add fields to ElkDev driver
Posted by: rbroders - 08-07-2018, 02:48 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (4)

I'm running 5.2.11 and want to add a security zone.

I bring up the client side driver interface and click on the zones I want to add. Pluses appear to the left of the new zones (existing zones have asterixes).  I press the save changes button on the lower left but niothing happens.  I have tried with the driver running and paused.  I check the log manager and don't see anything (aside from pause/resume of my driver).

Any ideas?

Thanks --Bob
