Rules Configuration / Re: Re: How are YOU using rules?
« on: February 04, 2013, 06:49:27 pm »
I used x10 motion sensors to establish "occupied" status.

That is something I am missing in my setup, and is most likely the missing link in my my lighting woes. I had the x10 motion a long while back when I was first getting into HA, but I dumped it because of signal issues. It was outdoor and the reliability to my receiver was terrible. That said I like the look of those units better than my current insteon sensors. What has been your reliability experience with the x10 motions? What about battery life?
Thanks!

Sorry, missed this.

I've had a few issues and only one of them I solved (a loose operator screw  :)). However I think the x10 stuff is a little buggy for me. Truthfully it could be my implementation  but I've had problems with false alarms (both positive and negative).  My to do list includes identifying a better sensor/technology because I do like how the logic works. It just needs to be a little more dependable. Battery life was fine.

My "other" is actually more of a support issue than a function.  Put together a simple to access area to store and retrieve IR codes as people build them...... and yes I know about RC central    :)

How do you guys get around that?

It wasn't that hard for me. I used x10 motion sensors to establish "occupied" status. I then use a simple if-then statement to verify occupancy before acting. I use it for my security mostly but should work with lights.  I would use a different motion sensor if I did it over however.

That sounds cool. I haven't tried bluetooth yet. What kind of range do you get? I have high hopes for the stick n find: http://www.indiegogo.com/sticknfind?c=activity. It boasts 100 feet range. Hopefully it can work with the BT driver.

About 30 ft.

Most of my rules are pretty basic except one. I set up a rule that within my security logic that checks to see if my kids are home before sending any notices. It looks to see if their phone is in range (bluetooth). If they are then notices aren't sent.  Though the limited range of Bluetooth limits the capability its cool.  :)

Since my oldest got an I phone it is not working due to Bluetooth conflicts. Darn apple.

Touch Screen Interfaces / Re: Hardware Panel Recommendations
« on: January 24, 2013, 09:07:06 pm »
I've settled into android 7in tablets. A kindle fire in my theater and a nexus 7 that roams around upstairs. I've gone through a few different approaches. I currently base my theme on control of my entertainment with my remaining automation control being on secondary screens.  I really like the current approach.

Not sure I'd get much use out of a mounted screen but I am going to buy another android. They are so cheep it is silly to not have a few.

One note, my theater control touch screen stays in a cup holder mount in one of my theater seats (like for a car). Love it!

By the way, regarding resolution I use the same touchscreen on both devices (different resolutions) with no issues.

Android app. Feels like a bug.  I'll try it on my desk top to be sure it works.

Update: It does work on my desktop so looks like an app bug.

Ok I have a new issue. The "pressed and held" event doesn't seem to be working at all. I did what you recommended (thank you) but it didn't work.  The system wasn't logging anything but the "pressed and release" event. So I tried the original event that was working in the "pressed" event and it didn't work or log an event when used in the "pressed and held" event.  The raw command does log correctly if I use it in the "pressed" event.

What the heck......

That's just saying the semi colon was missing at the end of that statement. Make sure to type it exactly as listed above or you can choose write to log from the action editor.

My bad. Thought I had copied and pasted the whole thing. It works now. The issue was that my automation computer had reset the calendar to 2008. Arg...... Thank you.  Playing with the script tester got me there.

I was just talking about the severity filter on the log viewer. Is your setup just a single server or do you have multiple computers? If you create a script to log something does it show?
Code: [Select]
System.Log("test");

Ah so... I have it set to "all messages".

I ran the system.log ("test") and got a monster error. Thoughts?

An error occurred while running the script.

Nothing at all? Is the log filter off?

A few systems messages is all. If by "log filter" you mean logging verbosity then no it is set to normal. If not I'm in need of an education.

Ok, I suspect that this is simple but I'm hours into searching with no luck. I was trying to copy some information from my log and there is nothing in the log.  Logging is on for the global cache but commands are not being logged.  So I checked a couple of other devices that have logging on and they are not logging either.  Everything is working otherwise. 

In the past logging has worked fine. I've made no changes (that I remember or am aware of  :-\)

Thoughts on what I should look for?

Thanks

Bart
