pomprocker   I'm using mine with a CM15A so that may be the reason I can talk to the PR511s with a StatusRequest command  ??? ::) :'
I get nothing sending a StatusOn or StatusOff from the CM15A, the PR511s send those.

I have my 2 PR511s controlling interior lights.  Hence, when one or both of those devices come on and reported on the Activity Monitor, that's when I know the PR511s were triggered.

So as a workaround ... perhaps just set the PR511 to trigger a dummy or macro code to report that it was triggered?

Yep thats what I said in reply #6:

Yes sir.  New users or visitors who don't have the PR floods however might not be able to understand the +code features.

Just added my own personal experience to help dumb it down a little.  :)

And believe me, when I was surfing the board a few months ago as a greeny, there were a lot of things being discussed here that was going over my head.  :)

it does respond to the statusrequest with a statusOn or StatusOff a query doesn't work on my setup for any X10 device for some unknown reason, but I would think it should respond to it as well.

Sorry kinda lost ya there...

With heyu and a cm11a, I get nothing with status, status_on, or status_off. however heyu statusstate returns 0 when off only because it is reading its internal tables...not sure if the same thing is happening with yours

Pomprocker:
Look in the Heyu monitor or logfile for the PR511 response (StatusOn or StatusOff) to a Status command.  It takes about 3 seconds for a response on my PR511.

If still nothing, what is the date code sticker (inside the control compartment) on your PR511 ?  Mine is 08J41

The only thing I see in the logs was from around 1pm yesterday and I think thats when I was sending the heyu commands trying to get its status:


03/23 13:13:59  sndc addr unit       5 : hu O5  (security_light)
03/23 13:13:59  sndc func    StatusReq : hc O
03/23 13:14:02  rcvi func    StatusOff : hc O
03/23 13:14:02  rcvi func    StatusOff : hc O
03/23 13:15:00  sndc addr unit       5 : hu O5  (security_light)
03/23 13:15:00  sndc func     StatusOn : hc O
03/23 13:16:16  sndc func         Hail : hc O
03/23 13:34:58  sndc addr unit       5 : hu O5  (security_light)
03/23 13:34:59  sndc func    StatusOff : hc O

It would not have lit up at 1pm so I know this is probably from me sending commands. I don't see any other status type commands in the logs, so I'll have to check the date code when I get home.


EDIT:

Ok so using the house and unit code returns something on the command line, but using the alias does not. However both create log entries

DiskStation> heyu status o5
03/24 14:02:03  rcvi func    StatusOff : hc O
03/24 14:02:03  rcvi func    StatusOff : hc O
DiskStation> heyu status security_light
DiskStation>

DiskStation> heyu logtail
03/24 14:02:02  sndc addr unit       5 : hu O5  (security_light)
03/24 14:02:02  sndc func    StatusReq : hc O
03/24 14:02:03  rcvi func    StatusOff : hc O
03/24 14:02:03  rcvi func    StatusOff : hc O
03/24 14:02:17  sndc addr unit       5 : hu O5  (security_light)
03/24 14:02:18  sndc func    StatusReq : hc O
03/24 14:02:21  rcvi func    StatusOff : hc O
03/24 14:02:21  rcvi func    StatusOff : hc O

pomprocker:
You are getting the correct StatusOn/StatusOff response from the PR511 but the command line is returning before the response is sent.  A more precise measure of the response time shows 2.9 seconds for my unit.  Setting "STATUS_TIMEOUT  3" in config (and restart) should keep the command line open long enough to reliably report the status there also.
