How to send commands to Shade controller?
« on: January 06, 2014, 12:06:05 pm »
Hi guys,

How do you send commands to a device and get values back?

Bascially I need to flip the open and close comannds because they are opposite:

for example:
To check unit calibration state, send CONFIGURATION_GET, 1. Return is a 0 or 1.

Im looking under the device "advanced" and dont see the options example:

CONFIGURATION_GET, 1
BASIC_GET
SWITCH_ALL_GET

I have a good understanding. Basically I need to set "CONFIGURATION_SET" which is :

To set motor direction to reversed and calibrate, send CONFIGURATION_SET, 2, 1, 1 (if
already reversed, then no action).

I understand that this is the value i need to set:
COMMAND_CLASS_CONFIGURATION 0x70-112

But where do i enter this command:

Code: [Select]
COMMAND_CLASS_CONFIGURATION_SET, 2, 1, 1

which will reverse the direction.

I know you can set values under device options but how do you enter the above code?

Any help would be great!

In the Vera GUI click the wrench on the device and then choose the Device Options tab.
Click Add Configuration settings.
In the Configuration Settings Variable field type 2.
Click the Monitor Only dropdown and choose 1 byte hex.
In the Desired value field type 1.
Click the X to close and then Save your changes.

See here.
