In my case, even after the agent restart, the names do populate, but descriptions do not. I wonder why the inconsistency here.DaveB wrote:I have noted that the names and descriptions only update after an HAI agent restart rather than real time.
Is there a way to capture this in the agent (or a workaround)? I use HAI panel for many automation chores and then feed them into the MLServer. This is useful to me since I can then control many functions directly from the HAI console if desired. Additionally, I have the two way X-10 version of Rain8 sprinkler unit that has been working flawlessly with HAI Omni panel for last several years. So it was easy for me to just use those variables to setup irrigation scenes. But I am unable to get feedback for things like "time remaining" in MLS from HAI. Any suggestions or workaround will be appreciated.DaveB wrote:On the unit timer, that is an internal timer to HAI and not exposed to the driver.
Yes, I am using the TCP version of the driver. The firmware is also the latest (3.4). I just updated it a month ago. The dealer PCAccess version is also the latest as of a month ago.DaveB wrote:Just to verify; you are using the TCP version of the driver? Also, what HAI firmware version are you running?
Yeah, I agree that RAIN8 net makes sense. But since it will be connected directly to MLServer PC (and not the HAI Omni), wouldn’t I lose the ability to control RAIN8 DIRECTLY from HAI panel? I want to be able to walk to the HAI security panel, and "run" a button command to start - say a sprinkler program. if I connect the RAIN8 net to MLS, I don't think I can do what I stated here. I wanted to keep the 2-way synch, therefore I thought better to have the HAI Omni controller be the gateway for this to MLServer. Maybe Mario and Dave can do the driver add-on that you mentioned.DaveB wrote:The easy way to do this is to buy a RAIN8 net, connect it to your server and use the irrigation module. The second way is to ask Mario and Dave to do a driver add on for the irrigation module for HAI, which I have been asking for.
Yes, this is a great idea, and will work for me (for now). This way, I can display the time left etc. Thanks for the nudge in the right direction here.DaveB wrote:What I do currently is I trigger an HAI flag when a zone starts, which triggers a timer in MLS and I use that data for the screen display control. Works, but not optimal.
