    Found a minor bug: I tried to upload devices3.xml from
    C:archivesystemhardwareinsteonezsrve-1.5.5-firmwaredevices3.xml
    and got the message that the file didn’t end in .xml. Probably there’s a buffer that’s too small 🙂

    (This was a file converted by DeviceXMLConversion.exe, so I’m guessing format wasn’t an issue.)

    It is the special characters in the directory name. Change directory name

    ezsrve-1.5.5-firmware to ezsrve155firmware1234

    and upload works for me.

    Update: it is the imbedded “.” (dot) that is creating the problem for the parser. ezsrve-1-5-5-firmware works

    The web interface could be improved by adding the group number (button number for keypads) window to the ‘then device’ in macros and to the timers. This option exists for the ‘if device’, but there is no way to direct then commands to a particular button on a keypad.

    I don’t see the ability to send an email message or alert based on a trigger. I have been asked by many customers to have email alerts based on flooding conditions etc. The ability to send basic email msgs on simple triggers would be useful.

    Top of my list is full keypad functionality (ability of macros/timers to control individual keypad buttons – groups).

    Is it coming soon, or should we just not worry about this feature for now?

    I may not be understanding the requirement but you can use a Timer or Macro to turn a KeypadLinc button ON or OFF using a Group. I’m running image 1.56. First defined a Scene where KPL button 5 is a responder and then used a Timer and a Macro to turn KPL button 5 ON and OFF. If that is not the requirement can you expand the description of the requirement. Thanks

    Thanks for the tip. Yes, I see that the scene will work for buttons controlling Insteon devices, but there is no X10 option under scenes. I would like for individual buttons to trigger an X10 event. Yes, I can program them with individual x10 addresses, but X10 transmission is dicey at best from the location of the keypad. Macros can translate Insteon to X10, but there is not a way to have a macro respond to individual keypad buttons (any button will trigger all macros associated with the keypad).

    It would also be helpful if somebody knew the PLM hex or the EZServe XML commands to control individual keypad buttons.

    You will be happy to hear that 1.58 has expanded on the 1.57 enhancements such that Macros can be defined to trigger on a specific Group/Button number. Image 1.57 added the ability to enter a 4 digit hex number in a Timer Command: field and Macro Does: fields. The 4 digit hex number represents cmd1 and cmd2 values. This allows a Timer/Macro to issue an ON to a specific Bright level (1180) for example. Image 1.58 expands on this feature to allow the cmd2 value in the Macro If Does: field to represent a specific Group/Button number. An “If Device: KPL1 Does: 1103″ statement causes the Macro to fire only when an ON command from KPL1 button 3 is received by EZSrve. An “If Device: KPL1 Does: 1203” statement causes the Macro to fire only when a double tap Fast ON command from KPL1 button 3 is received. An “If Device: KPL1 Does: 1303” statement causes the Macro to fire only when an OFF command from KPL1 button 3 is received. This new capability applies to all the devices that supply a Group number on an inbound Group command sequence. This allows a Macro to trigger on a specific Virtual Input Group number from an EZSnsRF or EZX10RF, or a specific Input Group number from one of the EZIOxx family of devices.

    Very exciting – thank you!

    When will 1.58 be available?

    Never mind- I see it is already there. It seems like you guys just posted 1.57 a week ago!

    A big thanks to Lee (Grif091) for clarifying the need for this feature. Thanks to his insistence we found a simple way to incorporate the group number lookup in macros for group broadcasts.

    We apologize for the short release time between 1.57 and 1.58 but we did not want to wait to put this feature out there. Enjoy!

    I’d really, really like it if the on-board web server could serve pages that aren’t locked down to a certain size. For example, the main “Device View/Control” page content takes up less than half my browser’s available screen space and won’t display all my devices at once – it’s got a scroll bar on the right. There’s plenty of room on my screen to fit all my devices (or at least twice as many devices as it does) but it won’t, wasting a bunch of screen space and forcing me to have to do a lot of scrolling within a “peephole” window.
