  Amazon Echo integration
Posted by: rhosch - 04-25-2021, 06:03 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (7)

Is this still a thing? I was going to try and set up the original (non native) echo integration and see if I could do something simple, like have CQC send a text to voice announcement via Alexa. I was following the Dean's guide in advanced topics documentation, but hit a roadblock when trying to download the code needed to set up the needed Lamba function.

Are the files mentioned at being at this link still available?


That link doesn't do anything for me. Has Amazon changed something that tanked this integration?

I just added some scenes to my ISY setup. I was expecting to see them come up in CQC but they didn't.
Can QCQ control scenes in ISY?

This thread is not for discussion, so please don't post here. It is for official 6.x beta release information. There is a separate sticky thread for discussion.

6.x is now open source. To get to the 6.x version you may have to make a couple intermediate steps. If you are pre-5.9.14 you'll have to go to that first. Then you have to go to 5.4.917. After that you can move forward to 6.x. The intermediate steps are necessary to remove the licensing stuff and then move data around and implement some new security stuff.

On the latter topic, the installer will now show a new page when you install which tells you about thew new security concerns. Don't ignore it.


Latest Version: 6.0.1
Confidence Level: 95

  How do I set a breakpoint?
Posted by: Spot - 03-25-2021, 05:53 PM - Forum: Driver Development - Replies (6)

I am really new to CQC and am troubleshooting a driver that does not appear to be giving correct values for status. I am trying to figure out how to set a breakpoint in the code so that I don't have to step through it to get to the suspect area.

I have been unable to find out how to do this via trial and error.....and searched the docs/website to no avail...

I am sure that i am missing something obvious....Can anyone offer ideas?

I am using CML & CQC v6.

  Radio RA2 tutorial
Posted by: rhosch - 03-14-2021, 11:28 AM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (9)

I've been going through some of the starter CQC tutorial videos, and I've installed a single device driver - for my Radio RA2 system - to start playing with basic concepts. And, as expected, I'm already stumped! 

Obviously part of this is that I'm new to CQC, but also unfortunately new to the Lutron environment as well. I've searched for some basic tutorials on the Radio RA2/CQC integration but haven't run across any. Does anyone know of any guides or videos that would be good to start with?

I'm using Inclusive 12.9.0 for Lutron programming, and have successfully configured my system consisting for now of just dimmers and ceiling mounted vacancy/occupancy sensors. I've programmed desired dimmer levels and set up several timeclock events for dimmer presets as well as to disable occupancy sensors at certain times. That all works fine but is pretty basic.

As an example of a concept I'd like to play with:

- occupancy sensor and dimmer behavior that varies with time. I thought at first perhaps this could be accomplished by sending an integration phantom button press that changes timeclock mode in the Lutron system. That seems to only allow different timeclock events to run, and to allow a certain occupancy sensor to be enabled or disabled at various times specific to that timeclock mode. But I don't see a way to, for example, have light A respond to motion at 100% during the day, 50% in the evening, and 0% at night, and simultaneously have light B response at 0% during the day, 50% in the evening, and 2% at night.

As it seems this level of complexity just isn't available inside the Lutron environment (as far as I've found), it will be necessary to do this inside CQC, short of having several occupancy sensors in each room that are disabled/enabled at different times and have different dimmer settings - which obviously I'd like to avoid. I had hoped to keep most of the lighting program in the Lutron environment, but oh well.

So, pointers generic, for tutorials or guides, and specific are all appreciated.

  any support for TP Link Kasa natively or third party int?
Posted by: b00ter - 03-13-2021, 08:33 AM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (1)

Hi Guys.

I'm new to this platform, but been around home automation for years. I currently have a hubitat and a control4 system that I play around with. I really like the UI and built in support for things like multi room audio (which seems to lack on other platforms like hubitat, smartthings etc). 

The only thing stopping me from going with CQC is if I can't support my lights. I currently have a bunch of Kasa switches and Dimmers. Id like to at least be able to add some basic controls for when I do all off commands etc, but for the most part I can get away with Alexa integration as I use that currently to control my switches most.

Any ideas if it's doable or even from a third party integration such as homebridge running on a Pi?
