    Feature requests for Bond plugin

    Please post all your requests and ideas here.

    Currently in the works:

    1. Adding support for Fireplaces - implemented, but need feedback

    2. For CF (Ceiling Fan) devices - adding Timer and Breeze support - also need users with devices supporting Timer and Breeze

    3. Brightness slider fix for devices with 10% brightness increment

    4. Bond API supports many functions, i.e. Creating, Deleting, Modifying devices


    Please note: the plugin is generic enough to support huge variety of devices. In case some features don't work - open a new thread.

    Include with your request - In HS Bridge Config page save as PDF the whole page and attach:

    Regarding logging ... Add descriptive logs like Z-Wave does for device changes that are always logged. These changes different from the more cryptic com conversations AK Bond logs. For example Z-Wave logs a light being turn on like this:
    Z-Wave Device: Upstairs Master Bedroom Lamp Set to 15%
    So for my Great Room SBB Fan AK Bond would log the light coming on as:

    AK Bond Device Downstairs Great Room Sofa Fan Light Set to ON

    where the name and condition is obtained from the HomeSeer device naming strings (Floor, Room, Device Name, and Status).

    Having this information is extremely useful when something unexpected happens. Usually because an Event or Script has a rare bug in it that goes undetected for some time.

      Yeah, can do. That's actually the logs from HS, and can be disabled in HS device settings, so I can use it as well:

        I tried unchecking the "Do not log command ..." and It then logged the directive from HS to AK Bond, but did not log the AK Bond state change. For example with Z-Wave I get
        Feb-27 8:29:16 AM Z-Wave Device: Upstairs Master Bedroom Lamp Set to 99
        Feb-27 8:29:16 AM Device Control Device: Upstairs Master Bedroom Lamp to On (99) by/from: CAPI Control Handler
        With AK Bond I get only
        Feb-27 8:25:38 AM Device Control Device: Bond Master Bedroom Master Fan Power to Fan On (-4) by/from: CAPI Control Handler

            My bond device is found, but none of the attached devices are visible in HomeSeer.

              Please start a new thread.
              And please check HS logs for more info (I see you do have Log enabled)
