    Thank you
    sonypoolplr,
    Thanks for your interest in the plugin. IR does work with Ocelot/Leopards, and Secu16IR(s). IR match, although slow, works too.

    Give the 30 day trial a try

    Thanks,
    Bruce

    Bruce,

    Thank you for including SW10 support into your plugin.
    It works like a charm.
    Now I can continue setting up my remote.

    Only configuring the X10 modules as Lamp Module Ext doesnt work at all. Do I have to do something in addition?

    I havent converted my scripts to HS3 yet, but in HS2 the script with extended commands worked fine. So the sctipts should work in HS3, too.

    Unfortunately that doesnt solve the problem that sliders dont work in HS3 and HS-Touch.

    I will look into this more over the weekend Fagor. I have a couple large installations going on right now, but things should calm down by the end of next week.

    If you are familiar with Cmax, can you test them there and tell me what you did to make them work?

    I will check eBay to see if I can get my hands on one.

    http://board.homeseer.com/showthread.php?t=182955

    I have just purchased the plugin to get my SW10 X10 devices work with homeseer.
    I created the SW10 as Lamp Modules, because a Roller-Shutter-Module was not available. Was that correct?
    ON and OFF works fine, but I cant dim the modules.
    If I try to dim to about 50% nothing will happen. When I dim to 30% the shutter will go the whole way down. If I reset the value to 50% while the shutter is going down, it will stop.
    What am I doing wrong?

    ;-)

    Hi Fagor,
    I don't have access to an SW10 for testing at the moment but a quick google search turned up: Responds to X10 commands : On, Off, Dim, Bright, Extended code.

    And reading a little further, in some very old X10 forum threads, there are some issues with Dim and Bright commands with these units. But it sounds like they work OK with Extended commands.

    Did you try to configure them as Lamp Module Ext devices?

    On the SW10's device config page, GTS CPUXA tab, change the type to Lamp Module Ext. Let me know if that works.

    Jim,
    I will have to look at that. The X10 support is limited as I only have a few devices to experiment with. Although you cannot check the "Is Dimmable" checkbox and the Advanced tab shows dimmable as "false" the Lamp Modules and Lamp Modules Ext are dimmable and Appliance Modules are not. If you have a relay wall switch use an Appliance Module.

    Yes Jim, on the devices config page you can change types without recreating the device.

    Lamp switch type selection

    Once you have selected the "type" of switch in the plugin during setup can it be changed later without deleting it completely and then having to re-enter it? Trying to avoid having to redo any programming where these devices are referenced.

    Denny,
    Yes, the GTS plugin will create new devices with new device refs. When you create devices with the GTS CPUXA plugin, they are owned by GTS CPUXA and will not effect the HS plugin devices. Of course disable the HS plugin to prevent COM port conflicts. If you decide to stick with the HS plugin, on the GTS CPUXA config tab there is a button for deleting all GTS CPUXA devices. Then you can disable the GTS plugin and re-enable the HS plugin and be back where you were before trialing the GTS plugin.

    SIDE NOTE:
    The HST plugin used a lot more CPU percentage than this plugin at least on my system.
