  Changing Field Values in Devices Tab
Posted by: TurboSam - 01-01-2018, 12:53 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (3)

I have a stable system and haven't make any recent changes, so I may be imagining this, but I could have sworn I used to be able to change the value of a R/W or W field in the Devices tab by double clicking or right-clicking on the item.  I can't seem to do it in 5.2.1  

Maybe I'm just thinking of the pre-5 version ability in the Field Browser to change values, but I thought is was also available under Devices in 5.1.2.

Specifically, I though I used to be able to turn R/W Boolean outputs or light switches on or off for Elk (and UPB), which I used to test certain configurations.

Is it gone or am I just imagining things?

  Examples of GetSchEvInfo, SetSchEvTime?
Posted by: IVB - 12-31-2017, 12:11 PM - Forum: Installation/Configuration - Replies (5)

I want to create a screen where I can see and modify the time of scheduled events from within the IV. Are there examples of the GetSchEvInfo or SetSchEvTime anywhere?  Or is anyone doing this where you can send me your templates?

I see this in the docs, but not sure exactly how to use it. 

GetSchEvInfo(path, timevar, maskvar, statevar)

The path to the event to get information for
The name of the variable for the schedule info
The name of the variable for the day or month mask
The name of the variable for the pause state
This command allows you to get information about a scheduled event (one of the daily, weekly, or monthly types.) You provide the path of the event and it fills in three variables that you provide. They receive the start time of the event, the day/month mask, and the paused/un-paused status
The mask has no meaning for daily events. For weekly events it is a list of seven ones or zeros, indicating which days of the week are scheduled. For monthly events it is a list of twelve ones or zeros indicating which months of the year are scheduled. A one means that day or month is scheduled and zero means it is not.
The time value is in the form "dd hh mm", i.e. the day, hour, and minute that the event runs each day, week, or month. The day value isn't meaningful for a daily type event, so just pass zero.

SetSchEvTime(path, timeinfo, mask)
The path to the scheduled event to set
The schedule info to set
The day or month mask to set
This command allows you to set information about a scheduled event (one of the daily, weekly, or monthly types.) You provide the id of the scheduled event, and the runtime and mask. These are the same as described in GetSchEvInfo above. For those scenarios where the mask is used, it cannot be all zeros.

  Elk, not all zones showing up
Posted by: IVB - 12-30-2017, 04:06 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (3)

Just realized not all my Elk zones are showing up in V2 driver. I just added a non-alarm zone, was initially thinking there must be some kind of delay, when I realized I was missing some other non-alarm zones. (Which may have been added after I created the driver).

Should I delete then re-add the driver? I tried a reconfig to no avail.

  Create Global Action from IV?
Posted by: jkmonroe - 12-29-2017, 07:59 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (3)

Is there an easy way to create global actions from the interface viewer if I were to create the interfaces?

For example, set the color and brightness of my Hue system and then click a 'save scene' button that will take the currently set parameters and make a global action that I can easily recall?

Here is a quick and dirty flow of what I am thinking -

- set whatever devices to whatever desired setting.  think brightness settings, colors for hue, and maybe Watch Movie on Harmony.
- in the IV select what devices i want included in my action using checkboxes
-- when a device is checked it writes to a variable or something
- when i click finish/save, it takes those variables with complete field names and writes them into a global action

 It seems to me like it would just be a series of FieldReads and Writes.  Am I missing something (other than I dont know how to create the GlobalAct)?

  Bug while editing GlobalAct
Posted by: RichardU - 12-29-2017, 01:31 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (7)

Open a global action
Make a change (I changed a comment text)
Close the window (upper right button)
Prompt is: Are you sure y/n
If you say no, it exits anyway

  Regular Expersions in Actions
Posted by: znelbok - 12-26-2017, 03:45 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (1)

I think I remember this being mentioned in a beta thread post, but I can't find it to confirm it, but can we do regex in action commands

I want to run an if statement with a reg. expression and I don't want to be chasing my tail trying to get it to work if they are not supported or if there is a specific syntax required to get them to work.

  Sony Bravia TV Driver
Posted by: znelbok - 12-26-2017, 01:47 AM - Forum: Driver Development - Replies (6)

Has anyone got a driver for Sony Bravia TV's?

I took possession of a 2017 Bravia today and they have an RS232 port still (3.5mm socket) and simple and advanced IP control protocol.

I dont want to go down the path of starting to look into a driver if someone already has something.

  Russound V2 Driver - no install button
Posted by: bpaetzold - 12-24-2017, 05:13 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (1)

I have the original Russound driver but wanted to upgrade to the V2, however, when I attempt to add the driver the "install" button never displays.  The driver install process allows me to go through the entire process but the "summary" tab never shows up.  When selecting the "next" button it cycles through the options and goes back to the beginning to cycle through the process continuously.  As I was writing this up I realized I could select the drop down on the right side of the option tabs to select the "summary" page.  Once I had this I just select "next" again and that completed the install.

I did restart both the server and the client machine with no change.  I also tested by adding two other drivers but they did not exhibit the same issue.

In any case, it may only be my system but though I would post in case others had this issue or if this seen to be a driver issue maybe it could be corrected in a future update.

  Early Christmas
Posted by: batwater - 12-23-2017, 12:45 PM - Forum: General Automation - Replies (3)

Christmas came early to the batwater household with an upgrade to Spectrum Ultra for our internet.  Last night at 2am (pain from foot surgery, dunno, was wide awake) trying to solve a speed problem with a Spectrum rep I found that I could upgrade our 100/5 to 300/20 for a mere $25 increase in our monthly bill and it is not a time limited promotion.  No brainer I'm thinking, 3x faster down and 4x faster up for an upcharge if $25 when days before it would have been an additional $60 to get the same service...  Bang, done, now cruising at 335/22, very noticeable difference and now when VPNing back home the connection rocks!!!
