  Replacement for HAI access control reader?
Posted by: ControlFreak - 02-23-2021, 08:39 AM - Forum: General Automation - No Replies

I have the HAI (now Leviton) 75A00-1 access-control reader. I have several. One died. Leviton has discontinued the product (and its successor, 75A00-2) along with the Omni. 

It is a relatively standard 125 kHz, 26-bit reader. No doubt they sourced from some maker like HID (but I don't know what company).

The HID miniprox (5365) looks similar with regards to those specs. However, communication is handled over RS-485, and messages (unlock the door, a valid read has been received, etc) are no doubt encoded in ascii and it is not at all clear if the communication protocols would be the same or different.

Does anyone know if the HID miniprox (or any card reader from any manufacturer) would be a direct plug-and-play replacement for the HAI reader?

Many thanks!

  Lost TTS with Win 10 and V5.4.920
Posted by: George M - 02-22-2021, 09:52 AM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (9)

So I've been on 920 for about a week now. Everything seems to be working Except my text to speech.

I have moved from Win 7 to Win 10.
I tried to have the CQC service logon as a local account and also as my windows account.
I know the hardware is fine as I've been using it for years - other than the win version.

Here is a sample of code:

If
System::IsInTimeRange
    P1=6
    P2=23

If
System::Equals
    P1=%(StdRTV:Minute)
    P2=0
    P3=No Case

Devices::FieldWrite
    P1=CQC-TTS.SayText
    P2=The Time is %(StdRTV:HHMM), and the temperature is $(DarkSky.CurTemp)
    P3=False

Else

If
System::Equals
    P1=%(StdRTV:Minute)
    P2=30
    P3=No Case

Devices::FieldWrite
    P1=CQC-TTS.SayText
    P2=The Time is %(StdRTV:HHMM), and the temperature is $(DarkSky.CurTemp)
    P3=False

Else

End

End

Else

End


I also just tried to reconfigure both the TTS driver and Speech driver. I could not complete the configuration because no voices are listed. I have three voices installed and when testing via system/speech they work just fine.

Any Ideas ???

Thanks

I literally tripped on another weather provider that definitely would serve as a backup for our sole remaining free weather driver that I thought someone might want to look into.  https://www.weatherbit.io/api

The benefit I see from this is that it includes a 16 day forecast.  The limit for the free tier is 500 queries/day.

  CML Macros - Replacing Quotes
Posted by: gReatAutomation - 02-11-2021, 06:51 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (2)

Trying to find out why I cannot replace a quote using ReplaceChar in a CML Driver using ReplaceChar.

I have a String

Code:
+CMGL: 1,"REC UNREAD","+11231231234","","21/02/11,15:18:09-20"

And I am trying to replace the quotes with blanks

Code:
tempString.ReplaceChar('"', '');

I receive an error

Code:
A badly formed character literal value was seen

This same driver (SMS) does the same thing with no error:

Code:
SendMessage.AppendChar('"');

  LED dimmer modules
Posted by: ellisr63 - 02-09-2021, 10:58 AM - Forum: General Automation - Replies (12)

I am trying to locate a couple of micro dimmer modules for inserting in the wall. I found the Insteon 2442-222, but they are discontinued. I see other brands, but I do not know if they are compatible with CQC. Does anyone know of a product that will work with CQC and fits inside an electrical box? I currently use the isy994i, but will buy an additional hub if required to do this.

So, I was trying to get weather working again and I see that the last beta added the OpenWeather driver.  Unfortunately, the driver install says to see the documentation but I cannot find the driver documentation on the website.

  920 Beta Bug - Lutron Thermostat
Posted by: gReatAutomation - 02-03-2021, 06:20 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (5)

Dean,

Can you please check out the Lutron driver as this bug with the thermo has persisted since well before 914. Specifically with the temperature of the Lutron thermostat.

As you can see from the driver, I have the low point set to 77.

You can see this same set point from one of my templates

[Image: IMG-3535.png]

On the thermostat, there is no change in the set point.

The other issue is the FanMode which displays as ????

  Updated SMS Driver
Posted by: gReatAutomation - 01-28-2021, 12:53 PM - Forum: Driver Development - No Replies

I found an issue with the SMS driver and was able to fix it.

Added:

  • SignalStrength - Calculated based on the RSSI
  • CallerID - extracts the caller id from the SMS message and stores it. When you clear the NewMessage or NewCommand flag, the CallerID field will be blank.
Fixed:
  • NewMessage - This was an existing a R/W Boolean field. When a new message (+M:MESSAGE) is received, this field will be True and you will see the message text in the ReceiveMessage field. The NewMessage field will remain True until you change it back to False, at which point the ReceiveMessage field will be blank
  • NewCommand - This was an existing a R/W Boolean field. When a new command (+C:COMMAND) is received, this field will be True and you will see the command text in the ReceiveCommand field. The NewCommand will remain True until you change it back to False, at which point the ReceiveCommand field will be cleared out.
These changes will allow you to set field triggers (Is Field Change For) on the NewMessage and NewCommand fields and take appropriate actions as you see fit.

The addition of CallerID will allow you to do many things, once of which is securing the processing of commands and restricting it based off of the CallerID value.

  Echo troubleshooting
Posted by: dlmorgan999 - 01-13-2021, 08:49 AM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (3)

I lost power for a few hours overnight.  When it came back and I powered up all my computers, CQC came back just fine, but the Echo interface is no longer working.  I just get "There was a problem with the requested skills response". 

I've had power hits before and never ran into this.  I don't really know how to go about troubleshooting this.  Can anyone give me some pointers?
