  • Unable to get communications

    I have finally gotten around to setting up my RFID gear I purchased in December. For the life of me, I cannot get the communications to work to the reader. I have read every post contained in the iAutomate forum, but to no avail.

    I continue to get Baud Rate Errors in the log..

    I tried the serial to USB adapter that I ordered with the system (FTDI unit). I have tried multiple ethernet to serial adapters that work just fine with EVERYTHING else that I have hooked up to my HS system. And I have tried 2 other types of serial to USB adaptors. I have attempted to modify my INI file per the instructions that were referenced here...

    http://board.homeseer.com/showthread.php?t=120590

    Here is what my INI currenltly looks like.
    [Settings]
    Taglist=xxxx
    Port=5
    Converted2=False
    sInitBaud=57600
    sBaud=115200
    [Reader-1]
    Location=Main
    Name=Main Reader
    RSSI=50
    Gain=1
    Timeout=30
    [TAG-xxxx]
    Name=4Runner Tag
    Timeout=5
    Model=LTG501M
    ObjectType=6
    HoldOnShutdown=False

    I am at a complete loss. At this point I have my unit connected directly to the provided Y cable without any extension in place to try to at least to communications working.

    Below is my system specs... Any help would be appreciated.

    The Homeseer plugin is looking for the reader on COM101, yet the config file shows the port is set to COM5. I think the references are from two different points in time.

    I see that Andy has been working with you via email support and sent you a request for a remote session.

    Rather than complicate troubleshooting, please work with Andy to allow remote acccess to your HS System.

    I can have him post a resolution here.

    Thanks

    Peter

      Peter,

      Thanks for the reply, the reader was numbered wrong, but Andy got me taken care of. The COM5 / COM101 issue was just from me grabbing info to post at 2 different times.

      Thanks for the support, testing has begun and so far I am having fun!
