  RadioRA2 & WaitDriverReady
Posted by: gReatAutomation - 04-02-2020, 01:03 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (2)

I wanted to ask if it is necessary to use the WaitDriverReady command when sending multiple commands via the Lutron driver.

With the help of IVB I've created variables (8 scenes) for all of my RadioRA2 lights (36) for each scene I have defined:

  • Sunset
  • Sunrise
  • VisorHome
  • VisorAway
  • Evening
  • Housekeeping
  • AllOn
  • AllOf
Examples of the boolean variables for one of the rooms:
  • EventsLightingSunsetDaughtersRoomRecessed
  • EventsLightingSunriseDaughtersRoomRecessed
  • EventsLightingVisorHomeDaughtersRoomRecessed
  • EventsLightingVisorAwayDaughtersRoomRecessed
  • EventsLightingEveningDaughtersRoomRecessed
  • EventsLightingHousekeepingDaughtersRoomRecessed
  • EventsLightingAllOnDaughtersRoomRecessed
  • EventsLightingAllOffDaughtersRoomRecessed

It was fairly painless process as I put everything in to Excel and then copied each set of scenes and pasted in to Ultraedit. From there, I just copy/pasted in to the CQC variables driver.

The VisorHome and VisorAway scenes are ones that are triggered events off of the RadioRA2 ButtonPress events for my Visor Control Transmitter.

I am asking about the WaitDriverReady because, for example, in my AllOn scene, I am going through all 36 RadioRA2 lights and turning them on.

Is it a good idea to use WaitDriverReady for each command where I am turning on a light?

This sucks... I can foresee Apple either turning the API off completely or monetizing the hell out of it.

Weather forecasts, maps, and embeds will continue until July 1, 2020. The website will remain active beyond that time in support of API and iOS App customers.

That API will no longer accept new signups, though “service for existing customers is not changing today.” The API will function for existing customers through the end of 2021.

  Windows 10 Reboot/Update Nag Screen
Posted by: gReatAutomation - 03-30-2020, 06:33 AM - Forum: General Automation - Replies (7)

Anyone here running on Windows 10? I've made changes to the group policies for Windows Updates on my Windows 10 machine running CQC, however, I keep getting nagged to install and reboot.

Is there any way to kill this thing completely or should I upgrade to a server OS?

  Home automation working without the cloud
Posted by: keepersg - 03-30-2020, 05:55 AM - Forum: General Automation - Replies (1)

I think this writer has pegged it.  Companies who market devices that are cloud dependent should be required to provide for local control

https://www.androidpolice.com/2020/03/28...-fallback/

Especially in this awful time, redundant local systems are even more important.  Sorry, Alexa, but you're non-essential personnel.

Hope everyone is staying home and staying safe.

  RadioRA2 Triggers
Posted by: gReatAutomation - 03-25-2020, 04:12 PM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (3)

Are these triggers set to yes because they are the standard load triggers? I ask because there is an option to set to them to no but it does not stick.

  Reconfig of Driver Causes Built In Triggers to Fire
Posted by: gReatAutomation - 03-25-2020, 05:53 AM - Forum: CQC Support - Replies (2)

I have the RadioRA2 driver and am using a triggered event (Is Load Change For) to do some things. The triggered event is specific to a load change from a specific switch and a load state (on).

When I reconfig the RadioRA2 driver, this triggered event fires off.

Is this normal behavior?

  CQC Server?
Posted by: gReatAutomation - 03-23-2020, 06:07 AM - Forum: Installation/Configuration - Replies (3)

I wanted to ask what everyone is using for CQC server. I currently have it running on an Intel NUC and am considering consolidating my NUC and my Mac Mini (runs PLEX) in to a single server.

Also, what is everyone doing for their server to ensure it does not automatically update and reboot, thereby killing CQC for that time. If the thing does reboot, it needs to auto login, etc., so that afterwards, CQC is up and running as prior to any reboot.
