    I don't have a voltage zone, so I have never tested that feature. I just enabled zone voltage updates in the version I just posted to the HomeSeer updater. Please test it and let me know if it works.

    The reload fixed the area problem. Thanks!

    The analog zone shows up and I was able to make it a device. But 1) In the Ultra config, the value is rounded/truncated to the nearest integer. In the stats page of home seer, there is no value at all for the zone.

    Thanks,

    Scott

    1) Allow the plug in to utilize multiple areas. The areas show up in the areas list (Elk Ultra plug in page), but the check box to enable them is disabled. Can only enable the first area. It also shows they are unnamed when I know they are named.

    2) Get access to the voltage from an alalog input. I have several input s that are reading custom voltages and I need that information in Home Seer.

    Any idea if these are going to happen?

    Hi Ultra

    When setting up inputs for "Non-Alarm" for N/O and N/C inputs, can you change the definitions and icons for the devices ?

    Currently for my non alarm inputs, under Zone definitions I see:

    <TABLE border=0><TBODY><TR><TD class=tablerowodd>002</TD><TD class=tablerowodd>1</TD><TD class=tablerowodd>Normal [Open]</TD><TD class=tablerowodd>Heat Valve</TD><TD class=tablerowodd>Non Alarm</TD><TD class=tablerowodd>7/30/2007 10:11:19 AM</TD><TD class=tablerowodd><INPUT disabled type=checkbox CHECKED value=002 name=chkAddZone></TD></TR><TR><TD class=tableroweven>003</TD><TD class=tableroweven>1</TD><TD class=tableroweven>Normal [Open]</TD><TD class=tableroweven>Fan</TD><TD class=tableroweven>Non Alarm</TD><TD class=tableroweven>7/30/2007 10:05:19 AM</TD><TD class=tableroweven><INPUT disabled type=checkbox CHECKED value=003 name=chkAddZone></TD></TR><TR><TD class=tablerowodd>004</TD><TD class=tablerowodd>1</TD><TD class=tablerowodd>Normal [Open]</TD><TD class=tablerowodd>Compressor</TD><TD class=tablerowodd>Non Alarm</TD><TD class=tablerowodd>7/30/2007 10:05:18 AM</TD><TD class=tablerowodd><INPUT disabled type=checkbox CHECKED value=004 name=chkAddZone></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>

    Rather than showing secure/violated on the status page, could you show on/off and a different icon ?

    Cheers..Pete

    How about when creating an event, on the device action, for UltraM1 Task Activation, a description is added instead of just "Task 001"?

    Now "Task 001"
    New "Task 001 - Activate Lasers"

    Could you please add, create an input and output device for each keypad so we can use those in HS.

    Thanks..Pete

    Having a look at the protocol myself, why not place a 2nd check box against the PLC device for "dimmable", when creating the device, which then enables the function in HS ?. What about in the device name, make the user put a:

    *D, _D etc in the device name on the ELK as then the plugin looks for that in the name string ( last 2 characters) and turns the function on ?

    Agreed its not automagic however its then made available to the user...

    The underlying plug-in supports dimming, but the HomeSeer devices created by the plug-in do not support dimming. The Elk ASCII Protocol does not expose the device type (e.g. dimming), so the plug-in can't automatically determine if the device supports dimming. I am still exploring options on how to handle lighting devices that support dimming.

    Pete,

    I have some set as dimmers and some as on/off. They all show up in HS with the option to turn on or off, but there is no dim drop down box as with other dimmable devices.

    Go into the ELK and define it as "dimming" instead of on/off. In the plugin, click the "reload data" button and you will see. Sorry I dont have any dimming lights so I cant tell...

    Does the lighting control support dimming?

    Who is disarming the Elk events.

    I'd like to know if it's possible to know who disarm the system?

    I want to be able to trigger some action base on who desarm it.

    A device should show the last user who disarm the system.

    I could adjust lighting and music/TV base on who is arriving. I could also display personnal messages and remainders.
