RFXCom and Visonic MCT-425 and MCT-441

Postby marunga » Fri May 15, 2015 9:02 pm

Hi,

RFXCom receives data from a Visonic MCT-425 and sends it to Domotiga with an address with format DWS[123X45]S , but in Domotiga the existing device expects an address in the format REMOTE[xxx]S . How can I use this smoke sensor in Domotiga ?

Also, I have a MCT-441 (Natural Gas detector). Is this sensor supported in Domotiga?

Using Domotiga version 1.0.021 and RFXCom receiver version F020


EDIT: In "Devices->DeviceTypes,Groups..." menu I've changed the device description for the MCT425 and also added new device type for the MCT441 . Never post or ask dumb questions before exploring all options...

thanks,

regards,
m

MCT-425:
Enable auto device creation (under main settings) and see if DomotiGa finds the MCT-425 device type and auto creates it, if this fails it will tell you the exact device address to use with which you can create the device manually.

MCT-441:
If you receive data from the rfxcom interface DomotiGa can support it.
Check if you see any data packets in the debug log coming from this device, and mail them or post them here, with that I can create the support if it's missing.
But first verify in rfxcom's hardware supports it.
Regards, Ron.

Hi Ron,

Both devices are working but as Door/Window/Switch devices, as seen by rfxcom data packets (reported state is open/closed). I'll gather some packets and will send them to you.
