For the record, MarkP (potential over on avs) had squintz/jkmonroe, a few others spend 6 hours with him on the November CQCUsers webex chatting about how to do tons of stuff.mdesmarais said:
Yeah, I reckon you're right. It would also be a reason for me to switch to something that did! At some point you need to get you're systems talking to each other, regardless of what they are and I would be leery of one that was complex and not documented.upstatemike said:
But I have to acknowledge the fact the HS did get it working and it is a viable option for now.Steve said:Yeah, I reckon you're right.

CQC 2.0 supports reading data from an ODBC database and VWS supports writing data to a database. I use Weather-Display for my Davis station which can write to a database table and CQC is pulling data from it through a very simple driver.upstatemike said:Homeseer can interface with my RainWise weather stations through a VWS plugin. CQC does not support VWS option 1 gets the point.
I've been following this thread with bated breath as well, so it is certainly helping out more than one person. I am in the enviable (or perhaps not so enviable) position of having no HA hardware to integrate, and am effectively starting from a clean slate. What I want to do (in no particular order):upstatemike said:
I wouldn't say the JDS protocol is complex. It's just not exactly 100% documented. Glen Todd (R.I.P.) who did the HomeSeer plugin had to chase a few things down with JDS and reverse engineer a few other things, but it was definitely do-able. However, it would take a fairly motivated individual, someone with a Stargate to test with, to knock out a CQC driver.upstatemike said:
The video of my Elk TS07 actually shows a panasonic cam in action. Here is a close up pic:upstatemike said:So how does CQC handle IP cameras? Can you control the PTZ functions of a Panasonic camera from a touchscreen? If I use a Samsung Q1 for my touch screen interface, will I have the same issues with choppy streaming?Steve said:As much as I love Elk, I wanted to make sure you are aware of the limitation of IP cameras on the TS07. You can have 2 sizes - full screen or mini. The mini streams well and the video is smooth. But if you bring up the video full screen it is too intense for the TS07 and the video is choppy, something like 5 fps I think. Don't get me wrong, it all works very nicely, but if you are expecting very smooth 20-30fps video in the full 7" you will be disappointed.
So exactly which room in your house are we seeing displayed on the screen?electron said:The video of my Elk TS07 actually shows a panasonic cam in action. Here is a close up pic:
Reason 1 - I do not have a wireless network so the screen needs at least one wire.Mark S. said:I'm not sure why you need a "one-wire" touchscreen, but I still think you can save some serious $ by going with cheap PC's and a 15" touchscreen combo for less that $600 per setup.
I guess I need some examples. Right now my touch screen plans are pretty limited to the following:Mark S. said:I think you'd quickly dump HomeRunner after you see what HS/ML can do, or CQC for that matter.
