    Me too , taken apart is my habit. But always have two result :
    1) Cannot assembly again
    2) Even can assembly , don't know why , will still have some extra screw stay on the table .....

I only do temperature, so the actual sensors are only a couple of dollars, but the 1Wire Controller and junction boxes are relatively costly.

      I do think the joint temp/humidity sensors are a lot more money than the temp sensors alone though.

      This is a link to the plugin author's setup, mine is fairly similar.

      This is where I got the controller (HA7Net) and junction boxes (JB6)

      The plugin is top notch - especially with all of the graphing capabilities that he has added.
      Thanks for your information. I get that China 16 Channel PCB around US 60 , each sensor is US 8
      User no request on any Graph , only need to monitor the value . I think I just write a very simple plug-in or script can make it work.

      OK , Finish my work this year. Tomorrow is Chinese New Year , start for my long holiday.

      Happy Chinese New Year to all of you!

      • Actually from the very beginning for the RGB LED Controller , I want to build a bob light like this :

        Actually that is three of RGB LED Controller , build the hardware not difficult. The problem is now to blind it with Meida player ..... need to analysis the screen pixel color

            That is very cool. It would be cool to see a plugin for you controller that could do that. Happy New Year Kevin

              Ken , please test the new volume plugin , see is that work. It should save the IP , Port , Firmware version value when you exit the programs.

              • Kevin,

                Received mine today! Thanks!!!

                Question before I screw around too much...to set up the Ethernet (not wifi) version, is the IP address the same? 10.10.100.254?

                If so, I assume I would connect it directly to my computer (using a crossover or regular cable?), change the IP address on my PC to something on the 10.10.100 range, and then follow the same steps as the wifi version?

                Thanks,
                Scott

                  Just a beta version , i just make some fast coding.
                  Now only support one controller and it will save the settings when you exit the program.
                  This plug-in will blind to the Windows Volume Control. So it should work on media player , iTune ..etc etc
                  And this plug-in will continue stream the data to the controller , when you don't use it , please exit the program.

                  Don't forget to set your controller's Fade Rate to 1 and get the better result.

                  Just extract the zip file , run the exe and the dll must be in the same directory.
                  Ok Kevin got to testing today and it works with any sound that the computer creates Itunes, TTS, media player ECt. and the save setting is working great. If you were looking for it to trigger from microphone input that is not working. I can see the level meteres moving in your program but there it nothing sent to the device. It would also be nice to control multiple devices

                  Cheers Ken

                      Scott , sorry , I forget to give your the instruction.
                      For Ethernet version , you need to download this setup program from USR
                      http://en.usr.cn/download/T24-setup.rar

                      Extract and run the program .
                      1) Press "Search in Lan" button , it will board case a UDP packet for search the module.
                      2) Highlight the module that you find on the network.
                      3) Input your IP , Subnet Mask , Gateway , Port , 9600,n,8,1
                      4) Select module work " TCP Server"
                      5) After input all the data , press "Setup via NET" button

                      And then in the plugin , just input the controller's IP and Port.
                      Enjoy it.

                        Ken , yes ,the program are bind on the master volume output. But I can make a checkbox to let user to select to bind on the volume output or mic input.
                        The level meter is control the volume on your windows , not for the controller.Multi-controller will be implement later.

                            Perfect...that worked great. I have it hooked up and had no problem changing colors via the Windows Application. Will work on Homeseer integration this weekend.

                            Have a good Holiday!

                            • Hi Kevin,

                              Everything works great! I have to say that the quality of the controller is top-notch and your level of support is excellent - both your responses here as well as how quickly you were able to get this from an initial prototype to a marketable product! I'm looking forward to whatever neat ideas you come up with next.

                              I didn't have any issue getting the controller up and running with HS3...It seems very responsive. I had the plug in crash once, but can't reproduce it, so I think its all good.

                              I do have some suggestions for you...these are definitely NOT criticisms, so please don't take it that way...just some ideas to try and help make your product better! The more customers you get, the more likely it is that you make cool new products for us

                              General

                              Hardware
                              • When sending out the Ethernet version, make DHCP the default connection method


                              Usability - Some of these will probably be a little bit tough to implement, but will take the plugin from a cool gadget to show my friends to a very usable and integral part of my HS setup

                              I'm not sure if you can do the scene idea directly within Homeseer or if you'd need some sort of application running in the background to implement....but hopefully it is something that could be done! Looking forward to see whether others have the same request.

                              Thanks!
                              Scott

                              • ok, i think my mind has gone south.. not being an expert at RGB i hope this isn't a dumb post

                                Have my installation up and running... starting to make events to control color and match up with my HUE lighting..

                                I see the plug-in gives me R G and B settings, but not SAT or Bright or HUE ?
                                what am I missing in the fine print
