[Altsteon] Problem - Device controls not showing in UI5
« on: May 06, 2012, 06:15:41 pm »
I have 15 devices installed and were working 100% with my PC based HA apps.

With Vera3 & UI5 when Altsteon communicates with the devices, the controls (on/off/slider) in UI5 disappear completely and only return for 1 second if I click the UI5 'Reload' button. See attached screen shot for UI5 showing missing controls.

The devices work with Altseton just fine when using it from a mobile UI, like HomeBuddy or AutHomation - but UI5 never shows the controls.

I'd like some help troubleshooting this. Thank you.

FIXED... this is a problem with the instructions included with the file package.

For dimmers, you MUST use Upnp Device Filename : D_InsteonDimmer.xml  -- not what is in the instructions.
