You need to be in the root dir. So $cd / will do the trick. If you then get a session bus error then try this command: eval $(dbus-launch –auto-syntax)
I do not see a reboot command issued. Can you please send $sudo reboot The zbpserver will start in the background on startup.

Yup That works perfectly,
I moved the ZBP_bins dir into /opt/zbpserver/ZBP_bins and cd there during the init script, it started right up first time
managed to add a smarthome 2413UH dual band insteon controller as /dev/ttyUSB0 and it seems to find it no
problem and lets me turn on/off an insteon ceiling light.
SO looks good to me
Thanks for the fast response, very much appreciated, now i have a basic working system i can experiment a little
would you recommend the ZBPLM interface for Insteon/X10/ZB control with a pi ?
is it usb or RS232 ?
if RS232 is there a breakout cable provided to a std 9 pin D ?

Glad to hear that.
Yes ZBPLM is the recommended interface since it supports Zigbee, Insteon and X10. Zbpserver also supports IP cameras and IP thermostats.
It’s RS232 DB9, so the only thing you’ll need is a USB to serial converter as it ships with a serial cable.
Let me know if you have any other questions.AnonymousInactiveMay 29, 2013 at 5:27 amPost count: 16
thanks much appreciated
do you have any recomendations on USB -> RS232 or will anything that the pi supports be ok ?AnonymousInactiveMay 29, 2013 at 6:50 amPost count: 259AnonymousInactiveMay 29, 2013 at 3:06 pmPost count: 16
