  Interface Template editor widget view gone?
Posted by: rbroders - 02-03-2018, 05:27 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (3)

Just upgraded, and I'm editing some templates with lots of overlapping widgets.  I used to manage Z order with the widget view.  Is there a replacement for this tool?

Thanks -- Bob

  Using Harmony Hub as IR blaster
Posted by: tom - 02-03-2018, 02:44 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (3)

I have started to create interfaces for the new Tv's  add in my basement. Two Lg TV's and Verizon boxes, controlled by Ir through Harmony Hub. All my activities work as they should, but when I create a number pad, then use it to input a station number it doubles up the first number pushed. For example push 5 and 55 comes up. This only happens in CQC, the harmony remotes number pads work. I checked the setting in the hub, turned the flasher to its slowest setting. Not sure if its something I am doing?

  NameSrv Issues with installing 5_2_10
Posted by: pjgregory - 01-30-2018, 04:35 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (4)

I am travelling at the moment and with a few day's on the beach, decided to set my laptop up as a standalone system so I could play with some media ideas.  I first uninstalled the existing client only 5_2_1 system, deleting the CQC directory and did a new install as master server system with 5_2_10.  This failed first time as the password set page could not contact the CIDNameServer.  I ran uninstall again and found that theCIDNameSrv was still active in Task Manger.  So I closed it, then ran install again.

Tried this several times with and witout re-booting in between before I finally got 5_2_10 installed.  I created a few interfaces yesterday before leaving the laptop to sleep overnight.  This moring, all I get is the "Waiting for CQC" box and after a while another box with "Cannot contact CID Name Srv on Nueomancer:13502.

I have tried uninstalling and re-installing a few times, but still the same problem.  One thing is clear however.  The Uninstall routine does not remove the runnning name server from the task list without a re-boot.  You can also see it still listening on port 13502.  Even rebooting several times and checking that nothing is listening on port 13502 does not fix the problem.  Something has got confused - what do I do to try and fix it.

  Floor Plan import
Posted by: George M - 01-29-2018, 09:39 AM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (2)

I am resurrecting some old templates. For my security and lighting i have floor plans for my house. Now the basement is finished and I want to add that floor plan also. However I cant remember how I got them into the system. I looked through the docs and could not find how to do it.

Can someone refresh my memory on how this is done?

I haven't done this yet, but ran across this thread that might interest anyone who wants an SSL certificate.

I already use unRaid and DuckDNS and letsencrypt separately and all are fantastic. Here is how you might put them together. I would imagine you could replace unRaid with another docker app.

  Scheduling next webinar (Sonos/TTS)
Posted by: IVB - 01-26-2018, 04:33 PM - Forum: General Automation - Replies (6)

hey all, JKMonroe & I are set to do another webinar. Primary topic is Sonos/TTS, but i'm sure we'll meander.

Who wants to attend? And if yes, pick a poll with preferred times.

NOTE: The only week I can do midweek is Feb 11th.

  GetMotionInfo / GetPresence
Posted by: RichardU - 01-25-2018, 08:38 AM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (3)

I notice GetMotionInfo / GetPresence in the reference docs for Trigger actions. Would that apply to motion sensors connected to my Elk?

Thanks, Richard

  Out of Milk Shopping List & Voice Input
Posted by: batwater - 01-25-2018, 05:47 AM - Forum: General Automation - Replies (2)

My wife asked if I could set up something with Google Home to be able to add to a shopping list with voice. Out of Milk (Android & iOS apps, and Google Home & Alexa voice setup) does just this. We have shared shopping lists (Grocery, Costco, Discount, Hardware, Pharmacy, Other) between our devices that are automatically synced.  Pretty cool!

  ISY, multi-controllers via SmartThings and IFTTT (ugh yes)
Posted by: IVB - 01-24-2018, 03:17 PM - Forum: Installation/Configuration - Replies (3)

Got sick of not having visibility / control over my multi-button zWave controllers. ISY *still* hasn't released 5.0 (approaching 3 *YEARS* in Alpha), and I didn't feel like dealing with code that they say "should not be used for anything other than testing".

I never actually destroyed my SmartThings so I plugged it back in. Using that, IFTTT, and CQC's Web Server to bridge it.  Here are the basic steps.

It takes 2 seconds from when CQC says to turn the light on that it's on, and about 15 seconds from when IFTTT realizes I turned on/off the light for CQC to be aware. I also have no control over the scene buttons, this is just the local load control. That's a big step from where I am today, so at least it's progress.

1) Setup SmartThings, added the 4 button controller. (Alas only the local load works, I don't think I can trap the 3 scene buttons, still looking)
2) In IFTTT, authorized SmartThings 
3) Added 4 recipes per light: SmartThings-Reports-On, SmartThings-Reports-Off, CQC-WantsIt-On, CQC-WantsIt-Off
4) In CQC, added for each light add: 
4a) a variables-driver boolean field (ie EntryLight) 
4b) 2 global actions (TurnLightOn, TurnLightOff)
4c) 1 triggered event listening on the webserver, with 2 if-thens (LightReportedOn, LightReportedOff)

Let me know if anyone wants more details. I'll either create screenshots, or more likely, create a vlog. A vlog would only take 15 minutes to do.
