Cbus shutter control

Damian Hartin 9 years ago in Products / C-Bus (Clipsal) updated by Olga (expert) 9 years ago 13
Is anyone able to give some pointers as to how I work with a CBus shutter control. Not sure of the button type/config I need.

Keeping the default settings from the CBus Cgate driver (as lighting app and immediate ramp) with a trigger button lets move the blinds in one direction only.

Have tried cloning the command and changing to on/off but wasn't able to get it working.

Olga (expert) 9 years ago
Dear Damian,

Please see the example of using the button here: CBusTestBed_iPhone (button).irpz
Commands are assigned to the button using Send Number. Then write a number depending on the button function (Up = 255).

If you want to control from 1 button, then you have to use scripts. Please describe in details what you want to get from the button (for example, what will happen to the button if you click on the it in iRidium - your curtains go up and then you strop them using the wall panel, not the interface. In what sequence should the commands be sent when clicking Up/Down/Stop? etc.)

Sincerely yours,

C-Bus Load Completed Event

Damian Hartin 9 years ago in Products / C-Bus (Clipsal) updated 9 years ago 3
Could someone please let me know what the event I should be listening for once C-Bus has finished loading?

I want to run some script post the connection to CBus so I can display a "percentage of lights on" label.

Olga (expert) 9 years ago
Dear Damian,

If you need the event which will be activated when after the application start all feedback from C-Bus is received, then we don't have such event.
If you need the event of when the driver connected to the equipment (EVENT_ONLINE), then it doesn't work for the C-Bus driver.
We can recommend you to set up delay after the application start and then monitor the Online token (see the project in the attachment). The delay has to be selected individually for your installation after checking in the log when the last feedback from the equipment comes.
