Trying CQC, need help with buttons
#11
Or, just look at what the COM port baud rate you have set in Elve is. It has to be something you set when you installed the Elve driver, since the VRCOP doesn't have a fixed baud rate. When you know what you used there, do a Reconfigure on the driver in CQC. When you get to the serial port selection screen, press the button on the right side to set the serial port settings. Type in the correct baud rate. The driver's default setting is for a somewhat higher baud rate, which makes things go a bit faster, so you may need to lower it if you've never cranked the baud rate on the VRCOP up from the default.

There is a VRCOP command to do this, which is outlined in the VRCOP driver doc page, if you want to do that. But, for now, just make the CQC driver agree with your VRCOP.

Oh, and if you can't see what the baud rate is in Elve, then just assume 9600 and enter that in the CQC driver. That will likely work as it's the default if you have never changed it on the VRCOP side.

There doesn't appear to be a place to set it in Elve. Must be an early driver. The VRC0P date sheet appears to me to suggest 9600 is the setting unless you have a +3 model, then it can be set higher.

I have changed it to 9600 using the procedure above. I'm not seeing any change in anything yet.

EDIT: I seem to be locked up with that screen I got with the "Administrator local client drivers" button. It indicates that device seems to be off line. That's an old message, is just still locked on the screen and I can't budge it. I even went out of Administrator and back in and it pops right up where I left off.

It will stay that way until the driver comes online. Go back to the Host Admin dialog (where you install the drivers, and look at the status there.) Is it still Wait Connect? It can take a little while to do the Z-Wave network scan, and it won't come on line till that is done, so that it knows what devices are out there.

If it doesn't come online, we can look at the logs and see what is going on. But as long as you have the baud rate correct, you should be ok.

It say Wait for Connect.

The network was set up with a Z-Troller. I assume that doesn't have any effect on it since it's been running with Elve and the VRC0P.

Not to my knowledge. All we know about is the VRCOP. So, do this for me:

1. In the CQC part of the start menu, run the Monitor the Log Server option. This will bring up the log monitor.
2. Press the Clear button so any old stuff isn't going to be captured
3. Go to the Host Admin dialog and highlight the VRCOP driver.
4. In the lower right, set the logging to High
5. Let it run for a minute or so. You should see messages showing up in the log monitor while it does this.
6. Set the logging back to Off
7. In the log monitor, you can either use the Snap to File to save it to a text file and then paste the output here. Or you can just right click in the output window and select Copy Text and paste that.

That should give us a clue as to why it's not happy.

Oh, wait, just to not assume anything, when you said above 'unless you have a +3 model' , does that mean you don't have a +3 model? That could be an issue, though I don't know that for sure. It would definitely mean you couldn't do some things, like support the new beaming or security oriented Z-Wave modules (like locks.) It may or may not be an issue wrt to our driver, but let's look at the logs.

I know this is going to sound stupid, and I hate to ask, but where is the "CQC part of the start menu"?

OOPS, I think I found it. I'm running 8.1 and it's inside in living color.

EDIT: It appears the baud rate is set at 57600. Seems a little high. A quick Google search indicates it should be 9600. Should I change it?

Sorry, Hyper Terminal is the simple go to solution to connect a terminal screen to a device on one of your PCs serial ports so that you can interact with it directly and validate that the device, the cable, and the communication parameters are all set up and working correctly. The idea is to eliminate the complexities/unknowns of the automation software (or other control software) so that you can interact with the device directly to perform trouble shooting. Once you know the physical portion of the device is working you can then move on to the control software, in this case CQC, with a known situation.

You can download HyperTerminal private edition for free from here

You can find the ASCII (computer text) command document for the VRCOP here The first page contains the default communication settings for the VRCOP as well as how to set up HyperTerminal to work correctly.

What I was suggesting was to try and send the VRCOP a command such as:

>N2UP

to get the status of the node 2 device. (see bottom of page 2, Feedback Commands)
