    It is screaming for a raspberry pi or arduino implementation: but the gas companies are a little concerned about electronics near the tanks.

    I only run one tank at a time and refill when it runs out. As I can run a few days on a single tank even in cold weather running the heater I am comfortable without a gauge. I also carry a spare smaller tank for my grill which could be used if required.

    Also, have a personal question:

    I've wanted to learn how to make money online for a long time, and I haven't found anything better than casinos yet. Perhaps there are players at the casino advise me please honest online casino. What do you think about this casino king login review? here - https://casinoslogin.com/king-casino.html. I realize this is an off-topic question, but still - I want to hear the answer. I would be very grateful.

    I'm evaluating making a new system and just want the cable - not a system.

    Thanks!

    Funny. I happen to run both of those plugins. I do recall that there was a thread about this...

It must copy the .BAK file over the .INI file upon shutting down or writes what it's using in memory to settings.ini upon shutdown... something to that effect.

    I shut down HS3, made the settings.ini edit, started HS3 and finally saw an error that Newtonsoft.Json.dll could not be found. I then copied the .dll...

    From: C:\Program Files (x86)\HomeSeer HS3\bin\
    To: C:\Program Files (x86)\HomeSeer HS3\

    Two things happened after this.

    1st... your script worked perfectly. All data read and new devices created as expected. Nice work!

    2nd... it broke the JowiHue and ecobee plugins. From the error I saw JowiHue repeating over and over it makes me feel like it found a newly loaded .dll but didn't like the version of it.

    Error: (UpdateBridgeCache):Is Bridge Philips hue reachable? Could not load file or assembly 'Newtonsoft.Json, Version=7.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=30ad4fe6b2a6aeed' or one of its dependencies. The located assembly's manifest definition does not match the assembly reference. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131040)

    There are seven instances of Newtonsoft.json.dll in my entire homeseer directory structure.

    .\bin\ = v9.0.1.19813
    .\bin\weatherXML\ = v9.0.1.19813
    .\bin\homeseer\ = v8.0.3.19514
    .\bin\Z-Wave = v8.0.3.19514
    .\bin\Imperihome\ = v7.0.1.18622 (499KB) (Must be leftover files as this plugin is not installed.)
    .\bin\Ecobee\ = v7.0.1.18622 (508KB)
    .bin\JowiHue\ = v7.0.1.18622 (499KB)

    Of the list above, both Ecobee and JowiHue share the same oldest common version of 7.0.1.18622. The one I copied into .\HomeSeer HS3\ was v9.0.1.19813.

    Removing the entry from settings.ini wasn't enough to fix them. I actually had to remove NewtonSoft.json.dll from C:\Program Files (x86)\HomeSeer HS3\ for those two plugins to be repaired.

    Is there a way to tell them, hey guys... keep using the Newtonsoft.json.dll in your own directories and ignore the one in scriptingreferences. Or, would I be better off importing the .dll as part of your script?

    I'm getting the following errors when running your script. I don't do much scripting on this box so I suspect I have to put the proper DLLs in the right location and edit system.ini for scripting references.

    I'm a Windows install. Mind if I ask what path you have your newtonsoft files and what your scriptingreferences looks look?

    This is fantastic. Good ole' Walpole.

    Ok, off topic. But, you are correct. This is quite an old login.... I had forgot my attachment to the place.

    One day our freshman year, someone from my floor ordered something from a catalog sent to Worcester Polytechnic Institute. (back in the day of the paper catalog)

    They sent him a letter back saying that they would need the express written permission from the warden before sending such an item to a prison.
