    I don't think any of this is an problem for the plugin.

    The problem was the skipping bad message - I thought that indicated the plugin was not working properly.

    The log file was also filling up. If this is not a problem with the plugin then I will experiment with my zone assignments - maybe I got them wrong.

    I was not concerned about Zone 18 appeearing in the log file - I assumed the plugin was just reading messages coming from the system, whether the zone was established in the plugin or not. It is happening with many zones (all my motion detectors, for example).

    Does that indicate a problem?

    (Thanks for all of your help).

    the skipping bad messages isn't a problem.

    is the fact that the plugin looks like its processing zone 18 messages when you haven't registered the zone the issue?

    Thanks for pointing out the location of the firmware version.

    I'm not certain what you mean when you are asking for the "full message". I've posted the section of the log verbatim - there is no message beyond what you see.

    Do you need me to post the log for a longer period of time?

    the ad2usb fw version is reported when the plugin starts up and connects to the ad2usb

    I need to see the full ad2usb msg in order to understand why you are getting the following
    Skipping bad message: DISARMED CHIME Ready to Arm "

    Well, I suppose a reply a year later is better than nothing (my apologies for ignoring your reply - I must have missed it).

    The problem seemed to disappear for a while, but a couple of weeks ago my Homeseer PC hard drive failed , and of course I didn't have a backup, so I am rebuilding my scripts and settings on a new machine - and I am getting the same problem.

    I'm running version 3.0.0.15 of the plugin. I can't tell what my firmware version is, I can't find where that is listed.

    One thing I should point out - when I rebuilt my settings I may have entered the incorrect zone numbers into the plugin configuration page. I have identified the "Interface address" as 18, and the "device address for partition 1" also as 18, and the plugin is clearly receiving messages from the AD2USB. However, you'll notice i am also getting messages from a motion sensor that says it is zone 18 (I have not set up any device zones yet, other than the ones above), and I"m wondering if this possible conflict is causing the problem.

    ANy thoughts you have would be appreciated.

    Here's a snippet of the log file with debug enabled:

    I'm guessing the connection between the AD2USB and the PC is somehow unreliable, after working on HS2 (on a different machine, running Windows Vista) for five or six years without a problem.

    What do you think is more likely - the AD2USB is going bad, Windows 10 somehow is handling the serial port communications improperly, or the plugin has a problem? (I suspect it is not the latter, since I assume you have a list of regular messages and these messages do not conform to that standard).
    any progress or resolution to this

    I'm guessing the connection between the AD2USB and the PC is somehow unreliable, after working on HS2 (on a different machine, running Windows Vista) for five or six years without a problem.

    What do you think is more likely - the AD2USB is going bad, Windows 10 somehow is handling the serial port communications improperly, or the plugin has a problem? (I suspect it is not the latter, since I assume you have a list of regular messages and these messages do not conform to that standard).
Working...
