If the iOS app exhibits the same behaviour I suspect that the problem lies with the panel firmware.  Why not have Vera switch on the outputs, then switch them off after 30 seconds?

And Texecom haven't replied yet...

It may be that the panel doesnt output the PC output turning off other than to Wintex (which does see them turn off after the pulse timer)

Good point, had forgotten I could just use Vera to do that, although will involve some PLTS playing, as I still dont get LUA. 

Well fingers crossed that they keep their simple protocol going even with the Connect API (although that means no new panel for you!)

If anyone has Ricochet expanders, I can recommend the new micro contacts, they are TINY!

Hi Simon

Just had a call from Texecom's National Sales Manager.  When the new API is out (probably in August) they'll send me the documentation and lend me a new panel for development.

Result!   :)

Awesome. Good news as well that the api and hopefully new firmware is coming soon.

Will be amazing if it's easy for you  to switch it to the new API. Shame they aren't giving you one

Out of interest, is it easy to get the current plugin to show 4 PC outputs rather than 2?

The new API will be nothing like the Simple Protocol, I'm certain - so a complete rewrite will be necessary.

Servicing 4 PC outputs should be straightforward; I'll sort that and send you an update.

Hi racarter

Would it be possible to get the Texecom plugin from you?

Would potential users please note that this plugin was written for Texecom Premier* and Premier Elite panels with firmware which supports Texecom Simple Protocol.  I'm getting reports that the new Texecom Connect firmware may not work with the plugin, despite Texecom telling me that the old protocol is still supported in the new firmware.

Since my Premier 48 panel is not compatible with the upgrade Texecom initially agreed to lend me a panel with the new firmware so that I could extend the plugin functionality to support Connect, but despite reminders they have not delivered on their promise.

In view of this I'm afraid there's not much I can do to help if you install Connect firmware on your panel and the plugin fails to work.

Hi all,
I'm developing a Texecom plugin based upon racarters plugin (with his permission) which will soon support both simple and connect protocol...
Non connect version due to be ready in next few days (much higher response times (zones update reliably on my vera about every ~0.6s, virtual keypad in vera as well as other little additions/tweaks)

connect version, I'll be working on it as soon as I finish my Lifx plugin v1.0

Sam

See http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php/topic,77475.0.html for the Premier Elite plugin (and in the near future, Connect enabled version)
