  With the ELK M1 does the Serial connection have more then the IP?
Posted by: ghurty - 12-30-2018, 10:49 AM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (10)

The difference between ELK Serial Connection and IP connection.

I imported someone's config that had an ELK serial connection. For the field "ElkM1_Serial.PhysZone006" there are Normal, Trouble, Violated, Bypassed and Unkown statuses. 
But with my IP connection, I only have for the PhysStatus and for the other type of status I only have False, True and Error.

Is this an inherit limitation of the IP connection versus the serial one?

Thank you

  Setting up SQL Database
Posted by: sic0048 - 12-27-2018, 11:57 AM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (4)

I'm an idiot when it comes to databases.  That being said, there use to be a nice "how to" about how to set up an SQL Express database to use with the DB Logger driver and graphmatic.  I use to have this all working on an older system.  I had to change servers however and I never got the DB up and running.  I'm finally sick and tired of seeing my blank graphmatic images in my IV that I started to play around with creating a database.  I didn't get very far.

I have MS SQL Server 2014 running on my CQC machine now.  I created a database called "CQC_Blank_DB".  However I am lost as to what the next steps are.  I created a new table called "DataLogSchedule" but I don't know the next steps or even if this table has been created correctly.

Does anyone still have the old instructions or would be willing to walk me through creating a new DB that will work?

  Going from Zwave to Lutron, worth it and what to do about the lock?
Posted by: ghurty - 12-27-2018, 09:43 AM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (6)

I just became a Lutron Pro Installer so I am thinking about swapping out all my Zwave switches for Lutron ones. 
Its not that big of a house, so I will cost about $1700. Is there a real benefit to going with Lutron if the Zwave switches basically work? Also, what to do about the front door lock. I currently have a Schlage that never really behaved properly with Zwave, signals would get lost, etc... Now without any other zwave units, I probably shouldnt keep it. ANy suggestions? It was the deadbolt style with a keypad.

Thank you

  Google Play Music integration
Posted by: sic0048 - 12-25-2018, 10:31 AM - Forum: Installation/Configuration - Replies (1)

I think our family is going to subscribe to Google play music soon.  As such, I'm looking at options on how to integrate it into CQC.  Right now, I just use a phone connected over bluethooth that I can play though out the house.  That works, but it also means that all interections with the music and library must occur on the phone.  I'd like to find a way to have control over the stream, library and playlists via my CQC IVs .

Any suggestions on how to do this?  Any software or hardware players that work in CQC and integrate fully with Google play music?

Is there a reason why Kodi is not supported? It  has an excellent interface, can import from your NAS your music, movies, tv shows etc...plus it is free. it can also be installed on your NAS, and can run off of Linux. The latest Dune players also have it as an alternative stock on their players. I have even seen that one of the competition is now coming out with a Kodi App too. It would also be easier than configuring MyMovies or Jriver too.

  Some technical videos
Posted by: Dean Roddey - 12-23-2018, 10:04 PM - Forum: General Automation - No Replies

This may be too techno-geeky for most folks here. But I've been sort of informally posting some videos on my personal Youtube channel where I explore some of the software technology I've created as part of CQC and the underlying general purpose libraries that it is built on.


They go fairly quickly and are intended to be overviews, but you can of course pause them and read more in depth where you want.

I'll continue to do more these I'm sure, though the ones there now are sort of the ones that are really interesting, but remotely reasonable to overview in a single video. There's plenty of other stuff but it's often quite complex and would take quite a while to get into.

A lot of it is fairly C++ programming language oriented, since my code base is written in C++.

  Orderly Shutdown ...
Posted by: rbroders - 12-22-2018, 06:21 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (1)

Some of my drivers have state information that they save when the driver shuts down (in FreeCommResource).  This works great if doing a Pause/Resume of the driver, but I noticed that it does not get called if Windows reboots for an update.  I'm not sure what happens if you use the services tool to restart the CQC Application Shell.  Do you have any thoughts on this?  Is there a way to register with windows that you want to be called before a system shutdown for this kind of thing?

I write my state every 20minutes so I don't lose *everything*, but it would be better if I could get called during shutdown.  It is possible that I could update my state more often, but that would require random access to my state file, or possibly an incremental state file supplement which I would have to merge back into the main state when I restart the driver.
