  CQC PC requirements
Posted by: ellisr63 - 01-08-2019, 03:20 PM - Forum: Installation/Configuration - Replies (3)

I am getting ready to install Windows on my i5, and was wondering if I might be better to use the i5 for my video movie server since I stream 1080p, and 4k movies. If I did this I would install Windows 7 on my Celeron NUC along with JRiver, and MyMovies. Would my Celeron NUC be able to handle Windows 7, JRiver, and MyMovies? I would not be viewing movies from MyMovies...only using it to rip movies to my hdd, and then copy to my NAS for playing. JRiver, and CQC would be the only things I plan on using with the Celeron. The only possible other thing would be to run Photoshop for my images..

  Missing how to tell CQC to read a Lutron keypad button pressed
Posted by: ghurty - 01-07-2019, 05:13 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (7)


I am trying to have a Pico button on the Lutron trigger an event. I saw that it has to be programmed as a single control mode. And I saw how to write the command. Im just missing the line of where to get the trigger. By trigger event I set it to Is User Action, but where does it read which button is pressed?

Thank you

  Event Order ...
Posted by: rbroders - 01-05-2019, 12:53 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (24)

Hey Dean,

  I'm chasing a strange problem, and my working theory is that it is caused by events being processed out of order.  Is that possible?  Here's my scenario:

Boolean Field X has a bidirectional IsTrue trigger.  I have a triggered event which calls me via SendDrvCmd
T=0; X becomes True
T=30; X becomes False
T=31; X becomes True

My code seems to occasionally receive (not sure about delay times)
True (30secs) True (1sec) False

Instead of the correct
True (30secs) False (1sec) True

I haven't been able to capture this yet, but I'm writing some code to try to prove my conjecture.

Based on the CQC architecture, is my theory even possible?  Is there any way to force the events to be processed in the correct order?  Can I get the EventId and re-sort the events after receipt?  CQCEventSrv has 25 threads on my system, so I suspect this may be possible...

Thanks -- Bob

  why master server needs DHCP client running?
Posted by: lleo - 01-04-2019, 11:04 AM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (4)

my CQC master server is on  a Windows Server 2008 R2 - it is fairly low power and low memory rig, so I was pocking around to see where can I save a resource in windows...
Given that it is a server, it has statically assigned IP addresses, both for ipv4 and ipv6
I noticed that I had the DHCP client as service running, so went to turn it off since again, with static addresses this is not needed, But then I got a message that the CQC Application Shell and Taskbar Widget will also be stopped since they are dependent on the DHCP client.

Why is this a requirement?

  Size of IV Client
Posted by: George M - 01-04-2019, 06:40 AM - Forum: Installation/Configuration - Replies (4)

I have not kept up with the betas much lately but just decided to try out 5.3.925 upgrading from 5.2.10. This has probably been talked about during the beta process but I could not find it.

When I open and Interface Template Viewer on my computer it is now about 1/4 the size that it was. Is there a new scaling factor at work? Is there a line item switch I need to use to increase the size of the Viewer?

  Web Camera Widget Questions
Posted by: znelbok - 01-02-2019, 01:57 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (4)

I am now using the web camera widget in a popup.

A couple of questions

On Preload I was taking the global variables previously and using that to create the URL for a Web Image.  I want to do the same for the Web Camera URL but there does not appear to be an option to set the URL (or Set WebURL) on Preload or On Load.

How can I do this.

The web camera widget appears to always be on top.  I have a page with thumbnails and on top of the thumbnail is a command button.  If I use the web camera widget it stays on top of everything - even the popup.  I cant push it down the z order at all.

  Is there a Thermostat that CQC can have two way schedule communication?
Posted by: ghurty - 01-01-2019, 06:50 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (6)

While CQC can have its own schedule saved and send that info to the thermostat, are there any thermostats out there that any schedule CQC sets would be written back to the thermostat directly, and any changes at the thermostat of the schedule will be reflected in the CQC UI?

Thank you

  What products would give the best experience working with CQC?
Posted by: ghurty - 01-01-2019, 04:13 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (11)

I am trying to put together what would be the "best experience" equipment to use with CQC to get you the most control and capabilities and with the best integrations. Also that we can get the most data out of
Any input would most be appreciated.

Here is what I have so far if I am making a mistake please let me know
Intrusion - ELK
Sensors for the door, windows, etc ... (to trigger events) - ELK
Lighting - Lutron RA2
Occupancy Sensor/Ambient light sensor - Lutron??
HVAC - I know NEST is good but is a different thermostat better? Maybe one that can get readings also of the temperature of each room
Wired lock - ELK Relay
Weather - OpenWeatherMap (seems like our only choice for now)
Physical buttons to trigger events and rules - Lutron RA2

Media Repository - ?
Multizone audio amp - ?
Audio Switcher (or will this fall under the multizone repository)?
Something to send video out to multiple destinations and can mix and match -?
Any integration with a PVR (tivo style device) -?
TVs - ?

Voice control - ?
Any appliance (oven, fridge) Integration?
Door Bell?
Controllable power outlets?
Irrigation -?
Pool/Jacuzzi - ?
Power usage monitoring?
Color Changing LED lights and LED strips?
Temporarily give someone remote access into your house?
Wireless lock -

Anything else?

Thank you

  Is it possible to tie in CQC into a third part calendar to drive schedules
Posted by: ghurty - 12-31-2018, 05:19 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (6)

I was thinking today about how all the big names are getting into the home automation game. And one of the big things is the predictive behavior.  Would something like this be doable with CQC: Tie it into let's say your google calendar. A couple things would be able to be from this:

  • Can see your calendar from the UI
  • Can have an event based on your calendar. For example, if you have an appointment scheduled at 6am in the morning, CQC would look at certain keywords in the appointment record to know that it is out of the house, and instead of lets say turning on the heat at 7am for your regular wake up time, it would turn it on at 530am.
All this I can see be doable if you manually create a schedule. The beauty would be if it can look at some calendar (preferably one that can be tied into your phone, etc...) and would do things based off of that. If this is doable, then a big plus would be if it can have a different calendar depending on the signed in user into the UI, so multiple members of the family can see the different calendar.

Thank you
