Im still here :D Just waiting for Tim to get his real life obligations done.

@Tim, interesting... i got some new Windows blinds controller from Merten.
Vera wans kind enough to accept it on inclusion.

Usefull to add to your device control?
Looks like it acts as a dimmer, problem is, i have 3 instances controlling one switch (double relay integrated to turn motor left and right).

So when youre ready and feel up to a challenge, i can send you the json to work it over....

That is a good way of putting it! I work so I can play and Vera is play time.....
Your project sounds interesting.....I am studying blinds right now...Shady is going to fix me up!
There will be over 20 motorized shades on the yacht I am building....I am hoping for the controllers to motor to a position rather than just up and down.
The touchscreen in this thread is installed on our yacht and being used everyday....
So far so good!
Cameras....wow what a challenge but I am over the hump. I am making a separate program for them until I know the bugs are worked out then I will add them to the current project. I can now do kroon alarms, sound alarms, and vibration alarms all with my panasonic camera!
More to come.....
Regards
Tim

@Tim

Ok... well i know there are solutions for the US Z-wave versions. Merten is exclusivly EU i think.
However, it should be possible with my new Merten gear to set it to a certain position.
Will let you know how it goes...

As for the camera stuff.... INTERESTED....
(only my generic plugin still doesnt do snapshot easily -streaming works great-)

Let me know where i can help!

Best,

Henk

PS, did you get my last email (16th of june)??

Thanks Henk for directing me this way.

I installed Labview and downloaded the most recent version 1.018 and have it running. I have not been able to get it connected. I inserted my IP address (same one as shown in MyMios). as 192.xxx.x.x
Whn I do it lights the green read light for a bit and then a button pops up besides the read light indicating read error. Any thoughts as to how to make it function?

Thanks,
Ron

@Minnies

This could indicate a bad network connection to your Vera.
Did you save after inserting the IP address? did you set port 3480 (default)

Theres a lot of variables that could go wrong, let me know
- Are you trying the software on your local LAN or remote?
- Are you sure you have the right IP (you can also check it in Vera's UI by clicking advanced in your toolbox (top section) and got to the net & wifi section)

Thanks Henk for directing me this way.

Wow, that is fast Henk

I have 2 different addresses. The one I  wrote down when installing Vera and the one shown in IU4. They only differ by the last digit (by 1). I have the one shown in My Mios indicated.

I am doing this remotely. I have IU4 up and running and everything seems okay there.

When in Labview it now show 190 and counting reads and the reading in the dimmer space has changed.

One thing I noticed is I never had to indicate a password, but that may only apply to MyMios. Not sure.

Ron,

This application does not use any passwords. It connects directly to the user_data on your Vera.
When the counting starts and the led blinks green, there is connectivity and you can start playing with the program.

Be aware, when using this application remotely, you need your portforwarding set correctly to get acces to the local IP of your device. Also the internet speed/bandwith plays a role.

If one or some of the packets gets dropped, you might get read errors since the program cannot acces the user_data momentarily. No problem, it should pick it up again a little later after a few (automatic) retries.

Hope that helps!

Hi All,
I have been bogged down at work and unable to play....but things are slowing down now!
Henk, Give me the latest bug report abd I will start working on them.
Minnies, I never really intended this to be used remotely.....what is the application you need this for....just curious
I don't have it setup to access through MIOS but I can look at adding it in if enough people want to use it that way.
Let me know....
Regards
Tim

Hi Tim. It is for a rental house. Some of what I see and hear would be very good for that application. I will be at the house in 2 weeks and can verify if I have the remote access enabled (though I am pretty sure I do as I can access it through Mios).

Thanks,
Ron

Hey Tim,

Is this just for a desktop or mobile device?  Also what is the OS Windows XP, Vista, 7 or Windows Mobile 6.5 or Windows Mobile 7?

@computerjohn

As @Timalls is a bit busy these days ill jump in:

The software is based on the LABVIEW framework. So basically, the program will work on any client/OS you can install LABVIEW on.

Installation instructions are in the first post of this thread.

My guess is it will work with at least the Windows desktop versions. It does not run on Mac however, despite the availability of the LabView runtime engine.
Dezwaved at the moment...

@henk is correct.....The software will run on any Windows version you have and it will not run on a Mac....sorry! I use it on a Touchscreen All in One computer that is embedded into a wall between the Galley and Salon ( kitchen and living room) and it gives you great Local control over the Vera. It could be useful on a laptop, Pen Computer, or any other Windows based machine for operating your lights. The back side to the control....reports, graphing, etc. Can help you figure things out about your system. It's ideal for me, of course, but I hope others will enjoy it as well. I don't currently support access through MIOS, but it is really easy to use LogMeIn for free remote access to your local PC running this software.
I am currently working on an additional Tab for multiple cameras to be displayed.

I have tested it on XP, Vista, and Windows 7. It is for desktops, there are lots of software packages for the mobile devices....EG SQRemote.
