Title: Jandy Pool Control
Post by: rstrouse on October 12, 2017, 04:29:08 pm
Version 1.0 Released
I have created a plugin for IAquaLink that interfaces with the Autelis device for Jandy.

The plugin can currently control and report the following features of your pool.


Release Version 1.0 - 10-12-17

You must manually install this from the Apps menu on your Vera.

rstrouse, will this write right over beta 0.42 no problem? Any changes?

I thought I'd never see an official release!

Thanks again!

Yes this will write over the .42 beta.  This is primarily cleanup code from the beta since it seems to work pretty well.  Simply copy the files to your Vera and let it reload the luup engine.

I would love to install this iAqualink plugin.  Thanks for the development work.  I have never done a manual install.   I downloaded the zip file and looked for a readme txt file no luck.   I searched the forum for "manual install from apps menu"  and found nothing.  Can someone walk me thru the manual installation process? 

Also will this plugin work with UI7? 

Thanks in advance for the help

@Hottoy,

This plugin is specifically designed for UI7 and UI5 and requires an Autelis controller.  To install you can use the installation guide I developed for the Pentair system.  It can be found at the link below.
http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php/topic,30275.msg217728.html#msg217728

Please note:  The installation guide was written for Pentair equipment.  For Jandy equipment enter D_AutelisJandy.xml with no spaces exactly as you see here when you get to the Creat Device section of the document. 

Also, after you have completed the install make sure you go into your Autelis software and identify the plugin device.  This will provide instant status whenever anything changes on your pool.

Thank you for the work on the plugin and the help.  Cannot wait to get this installation completed.

Hello Rstrouse,

I hit a snag when I tried to restart the luup engine after creating the parent device.  I don't have the selection to restart the luup engine selection on my serial port configuration.  See attached screen shot.   
I tried the following:   hit the save on serial screen,  restarted the wifi connection, went into another device selected the advanced tab and restarted the lupp there.   I still don't see the pool control device in my device list.  I entered the Upnp device filename for the Jandy equipment  D_AutelisJandy.xml with no spaces while creating the device.  Did I do something wrong?  Did a firmware remove the luup engine restart from the serial screen?    I'm running ui7 firmware 1.7.3232

Thanks for the continuing help.

Yes a firmware removed the Reload Luup button from the serial port screen.  That button has migrated all over the place.  Please clear your cache Reload the Luup engine again then reload the page.  Also, the notifications that used to display when the when the luup engine was reloading have been removed by default.  You can turn these back on by going to Users & Account Info --> Notifications.  It will be the last check on the bottom.

If this does not show the Pool Control device under Devices in No Room then please verify the following files exist on your Vera.  To do this...  Open Apps-->Develop Apps-->Luup Files and verify that the following files exist on your Vera.  These should appear in your list.  If any of them do not exist please upload them by dragging them onto the Upload drag and drop files portion of the screen.

rstrouse,

I'm looking into using openLuup to run my Vera. Will Pool Control work? It isn't an "installed" plugin per se but rather a bunch of files dumped into Vera. Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks!

I don't actually know how openLuup works.  Haven't messed with it.

Neither do I other than it is a Vera emulator that runs on a PC or rPi to offload the heavy lifting and then just ties into the controller to issue commands to the devices. I'm just researching right now. The latest f/w didn't do me good and Vera seems to not be able to get things right with getting the status from Schlage Locks so I can run other scenes or PLEG from their state to arm the house in Away Mode.

Read through the doc but still aren't any smarter.  I guess old dogs applies.
