  • issue with UMI sensor

    Hi;
    I get the following sequence of messages whenever I trigger one of the inputs on my UMI 3in/2out sensors. I think everything is working correctly but the error message in the sequence regarding channel 3 concerns me. Since the channel 3 device seems to changes correctly. But I also notice the values seems slow to update---is that normal with this device? I have them programmed to send link commands and those events trigger immediately, but the device status lingers for a long time in the old state (for channels 2 and 3, so I don't think this is related to the error message in the log).

    I have set it up now to have a virtual device that is turned on and off based on events triggered by activate and deactivate commands---those devices respond immediately, but the In 2 and In 3 devices created by the plug-in frequently lag (and sometimes never change).

    Any explanatiojn? Or shall I just ignore the native devices and use the events and the devices triggered by those events?

    I get the following during import for the same UMI device:

    Oct-15 9:53:30 PM UPBSpud ERROR DEVICE[10]:: Unknown channel report for device (channel 3) -- ignored

      this UMI 3in/2out is a very special device, when it reports its state, it uses channel 1 to report the states of the 3 inputs and channel 2 to report the states of the 2 outputs.

      For example this log line "Got PIM based STATUS report -- LEVEL=6, CHANNEL=1" means inputs 2 and 3 are ON and input 1 is OFF (because 6 is 110 in binary)

      as far as I know channel 3 does not have any meaning, so if everything is working correctly I would just ignore this error.

      Regarding the slowness of the update, I think I know what is causing it, I will provide a fix for you to test soon.

        in version 3.0.0.26 available here, the "Unknow channel" error is now only reported at Debug level because I think it can be ignored
        and I added a fix for the lag you saw when the devices status are updated.

        please test and let me know.
