    If required you could set the Device Values-Status/Graphics to compensate for this. Change the first value to 60 and not 10 and then change the percentages.

I did think though the addition of ethernet capacity might result in a full overhaul of the script, simply because you would not have the same callback functions, in reality i suspect it would actually have to go towards a plugin!
    I am working on an Ethernet version but time I a little tight at the moment.
    I plan on using a main board connected to Homeseer in the same way as I do now but have a Ethernet interface in the board to connect to other boards over the network. This way I can use the script I have without to much of an overhaul.

    UseDHT11 = 1
    UseDHT22 = 0
    UseEthernet = 1
    UseLCD = 0
    Use1Wire = 0

    That way your script would almost be unlimited in nature, and then in the code you could have an include only if the paramater = 1, then it could be extended to include the various devices.
    This is what I am doing now with some things look in the ino. There is (Use1Wire = 0) in there now. I did look at adding an LCD as if you look in to the code there are some left over bits in there.

    I'm glad you like the script. As I said I will work on the Ethernet interface when I get time.

      Hi Greig,

      I've got everything setup and your script is working great. This is very cool!

      One question I have at the moment is:
      I'm using a TMP36 temperature sensor that requires the following math on the raw volts to get a value in Degs F:
      Temp(deg F)=((([rawVolts]- 0.5)*100) x 1.8)+32)
      Is there a way to use the config in the .ini to do this conversion?

      Thanks and nice job!

      Alan

      PS. I see that you are planing on working on Ethernet communication. I also think that your script will greatly befit from the easy interface of the Ardunio to Zigbee modules. I'm starting to use them and they are very cool.

        Moving Forward.....

        HI all,

        Just a quick update to say that the script is going well and I think all the big bugs have gone and that I think there are only a couple of timing problems that I am working on at the moment.

        I have added the following to the script.
        8. PWM fade times can be set from a device in Homeseer
        9. Calculations can be performed on the analogue inputs to display custom data.
        10. Analogue inputs can be inverted to accommodate various sensors.
        11. An Lcd can be added to display text from Homeseer.
        12. The board will Auto reconnect if reset while connected to HS.

        I would also like to say a "BIG Thank You" to all the beta testers out there who have given me feedback and help with the script.

        Now that the script is where i would like it I think the next move is Ethernet.

        Greig.

          Ethernet, RA RA!! Not sure what your thinking for IP support but if your looking to keep your changes to a mininum the Serial IP plugin had a passthru mode where you could us it to handle the IP stuff and just pass recieved values into your script. Just a thought.

            2 new devices to wish list

            Greig
            The UNO I am preparing for deplyment to my garage uses 2 devices not currently on your list. Maybe you could add them to the whish list.

            1) "ShiftOut" device - Seee http://www.arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/ShiftOut. I use this for Expanded relays as only takes 3 pins for unlimited relays. I use 16.

            2) SR04 - utrasonic distance measurment

            I have support code for both if that would help.

              Hi Gerard.

              At some point in the future I may add the SR04 as this could be a fun device to play with but for the moment I don't want to spend more time on adding features until I get the Ethernet sorted out.

              Consider it on the ever growing list.

                hello Greig,

                when you go releas the script ?.
                i'm looking for a script to use the digital ports from the arduino.

                  Hi Mark,

                  The script is almost there. I just have a couple of bugs to fix then I think I may release the script.
                  I hope in the next couple of weeks.
                  It will not be the ethernet version as I am having problems getting this to work reliably.

                      Hi Greig,

                      I have your scripts working perfectly with just one servo at the moment. I am in the process of adding a Adafruit motor shield to the Arduino UNO (R3) so that I can also control 2 stepper motors. I guess your current scripts won't support that (or am I wrong?) What would it take to build in the stepper motor support?

                          for those that have installed the script where is the arduino.ini file? It was not in the zip that I was sent.
