    Looks like you have first version of Raspberian Wheezy on your two RPi's. That said the first Homeseer Zee ran on an RPi #1.

    The initial Homeseer 3 Zee 2 had mono that was built long math way which made it difficult to remove.

    Tim,

    It will be easier for you to start from scratch. That said you will lose your events as mentioned above using a newer version of Mono.

    Best maybe to save your Homeseer 3 directory to a USB stick. Copy /opt/usr/HomeSeer to a USB stick. Make sure it is not running.


    1 - Download current version of Zee2 over here ==> Download Zee2
    2 - write the image to a new 16 SD card and connect a monitor and keyboard to your RPi
    3 - after install make sure it is running.
    4 - update and upgrade the OS
    5 - at the end check your version of mono: mono -V
    6 - this version of Mono on the new Zee2 can be upgraded if you want. (optional).

    As mentioned above you will lose your events upgrading Mono versions. There are no real mechanisms to preserve you events when upgrading old mono to new mono.

    Best mechanism is to do a screen print maybe of each of your events and manually re-enter them one by one.

    Here repurposed my original Homeseer 3 Zee and continue to utilize the Zee 2 RPi2's.

      Thank you for advices.
      My apologies for not specifying that im trying to set this raspberry as additional input device .
      My HomeSeer is running on another PC.
      I have purchased plugin for RaspberryIO.

        Just install the latest Raspbian image (Raspbian Stretch) that you can find here: https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/raspbian/
        I'm not sure what is the latest mono version that comes with this distribution but you probably won't have to upgrade mono at all.

        install mono:

        Code:
        sudo apt-get install mono-complete
        then check the version

        Code:
        mono --version
        if you have 4.x or later you are good to go.

          Hi Spud,

          There is 3 versions of Rasbian Stretch. Which one do you recommend.
          Do I need desktop version with recommended software or lite.
          Also, because all programming is done in command line , do I need desktop version at all.

          This Raspberry will be used with your plugin to get inputs from PLC. I have dedicated PC with HomeSeer installed on it.
          How many Raspberry devices can I use with this plugin?

            I would go with Stretch Lite

            You can use as many RPi as you want with the plugin, each one will create a new instance of the plugin that connects to your HS3 system.

              Thank you for your advice. Will install it tonight and try it. I work long hours so not much time for learning Raspberry programming.
              Best Regards

                    It is ...

                    mono -V

                      Finally, mono is installed to 4.6.2.7 version.
                      Program connects to the HomeSeer for few seconds and disconnect.
                      Shutdown IO called

                      I have RaspberryIO plugin 3.0.0.14 on HomeSeer but on config page says System is not Raspbery Pi??

                      This doesnt seems right??

                        On the Homeseer machine you must NOT enable the RaspberryIO plugin, leave it disabled.
                        How do you start your remote instance?
                        Please post the logs you get when you start your remote instance.

                          Hi Spud,

                          I disabled plugin on HomeSeer, and I started remote instance on Raspbery with:

                          sudo ./run.sh

                          this morning, I have restarted Homeseer and raspberry, but raspberry have forgotten all settings for RaspberryIO.
                          I have checked at:

                          pico ./run.sh and it is empty.

                            when you run this command, you need to make sure your current directory is the directory where you installed it the first time, otherwise it will just create an empty run.sh file in your current dir.

                              Ok. Will check it tonight. Also will send screenshot of error messages.

                              It tries to connect every 30 seconds.
                              Also, will add line to start RaspberryIO every time after reboot.
                              Thank you.
