    Rick,
    The GTS CPUXA plugin does not support Leopard1/Ocelot Screens. Last I checked the Homeseer HS3 Ocelot plugin only supports monitoring inputs. It might control outputs, not sure, it's been a while since I had it loaded. The features and limitations of GTS CPUXA can be found in the description thread at the top of this sub forum. You can always load the Homeseer HS3 plugin and compare the two.

    Thanks much ! I was wondering if your plugin supports the useage of the Leopard1/Ocelot Screen? Also reading thru some of the threads it looks like rjh ported the old homeseer ocelot plugin over to HS3. Is this a correct assumption and if it is what is the difference between homeseer ocelot support and the ocelot/leopard support that you provide? Thanks again and yes I will need to get my feet wet with Hometroller s6 pro and the homeseer software....Rick

When I switch over to HS3PRO with the purchase of the plugin, will I just be able to connect the serial cable from the Ocelot/Leopard to the Hometroller S6 Serial port and it should work with no reconfiguration of the Ocelot/Leopard? I have a SECU16IO module connected and working with the old system and software along with an SECU16IR and a couple of bobcat modules (Humidity, Temp)? I assume that the CMAX Software and CMAX IR software are loaded onto the Ocelot/Leopard1 so shouldn't have to load CMAX software onto HomeTroller S6 Pro. Would this be correct. Seems I should just be able to plug serial port on Ocelot/Leopard1 into HomeTroller and the HS3PRO should recognize the configuration and work ok. Maybe I am just dreaming. Let me know what needs to be done when migrating the Ocelot/Leopard1 (configured in V1.7.3) to the latest version of HS3. Thanks much for all your help !!!!! Don't have my HomeTroller S6 PRO yet as I ordered it today. Trying to get prepared for the big switch over !!!!!! I'm pretty excited about the capabilities of HS3PRO compared to my old version of Homeseer (V1.7.3). Do I purchase your plug-in from the Plug-in Store? I see an ocelot plugin in the store but there seems to be another ocelot plug-in on the forum. Yours looks like it is the one that works good with HS3PRO and want to make sure that your Ocelot Plugin is the one in the Plug-in Store !! Your help is much appreciated.....Rick
    Hi Rick,
    You should be able to plug your Ocelot into the S6 and configure the plugin to control/monitor it. Read through the GTS CPUXA On Line Help to get started. You can purchase the plugin through the HS3 plugin store, but I suggest you do the 30 day trial before you buy. I also suggest getting comfortable with HS3 first, before installing GTS CPUXA, as its very different from the version you are coming from :-)

    We will be here to help if needed.

    Thanks,
    Bruce

    So in your plug in app, I turned on P16 but there is no P16 module, just looking for status.



    When I send a remote p16 off command no log file and no status change on the devices.



    any ideas



    thanks

    You will need to set up a receive x10 event. I'm on the road right now and will be back later

    Let me know if you have issues, if you do I'll hook all that stuff up and get to the bottom of of it

    One more thing, I have a transceiver X10 module that I would think should work like a appliance switch. Is that right?

    My goal is to trigger an event when the transceiver changes state. ie (all lights in house off )

    thanks

    Hi Frank,
    Not at this time, but you can use appliance modules instead of lamp modules for your relay wall switches. X10 support is very limited with this plugin. I am working, when I have time, on a maintenance release that fixes a few things with various units that I do not have available for testing and new users have found issues with. I will look at including non-dimming (relay) wall switches in the X10 device type choices for that maintenance release but I can't promise anything.

    For now just use appliance modules for relay lamp modules.

    Thanks

    In the GTS-CPUXA plugin, I used IR banks as way to keep from putting 1024 checkboxes on a single screen. If you look in each bank you will see that it is a "segment" of the 1024 IR locations.

    Ocelots/Leopards have 1024 (0-1023) IR locations that can have IR codes learned to them. The Secu16IR can be thought of as an "IR manifold". The Secu16IR does not hold IR locations, it provides additional "pipes" (ports/zones) for the IR signals to be sent.

    Just remember that IR locations are stored in the Ocelot not the Secu16IR and each location can store 1 IR command. IR locations can be sent through the Ocelot's IR Emmitter port or any Secu16IR(s) port(s).

    Thanks,
    Bruce

    Hi trying to figure out the IR locations better. In looking at HS locations, there are signal locations 1-1024, but also output zone numbers 1-17. In looking at the plugin I have bank 0-10, and then also zone 0-15. Is there an "easy" way to understand the relationship between HS2 & HS3?

    Thank you.

    Also, will I need to relearn the IR commands, or can I somehow get them from my HS2 system, or the Ocelot itself?

    Thanks.
    Yes, Secu16IRs and Bobcats are supported.

    The Ocelot stores the IR command in "IR locations" in Ocelot memory. If you know what commands are in each IR location, you can just create IR devices without having to relearn. For example... you have a "TV Power" command stored in IR location 1. If you create an Ocelot or Secu16IR device at location 1, when you send it it will work.

    You can view the online help here.

    sonypoolplr,

    I think you read the last limitation bullet that reads"Plugin recognizes Ocelot/Leopard slaves but does not read/set variables or send IR at this time".

    Slave Ocelots do not send IR, but masters do

    Thanks,
    Bruce
