  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

  Does the auto-gen template system support Roku?
Posted by: ghurty - 12-31-2018, 04:56 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (3)

Does the auto-gen template system support Roku? I see there is a Roku driver, I have set it up to point to my device. But not sure how to add it in the autogen template. It doesnt come up under a media repository. If it doesnt support the autogen, is there an easy way to have control over it?

Thank you

  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?
