Improvements and bug fixes

  • In the windows client, you can make a full copy of a zone in ‘Manage zones’
  • When doing ‘read changes’, ‘full reset’ and at initial setup, a progress on the scanning of the bus is shown on screen (web and Windows Client)
  • Web interface: Status of shades was neither up or down
  • Logic module: when a rule triggers an input, now the ‘press’ and ‘release’ is send, before only the ‘press’ was send
  • Velbus: the thermostat of the VMBGPOD is now always added from the bus (Execute ‘read changes’ if you are missing a VMBGPOD thermostat)
  • Music Sonos: when switching between radio and playlists, some text of the previous action was still shown
  • In some cases the server status remained ‘not ready…’ when it actually was done. (When executing ‘read changes’ twice)
  • Possible connection lose when creating and editing zones with ‘Manage zones’

Home center 2.7.2.2

Home centerWe released a new update for Home center, which contains the following improvements:

Bugfixes

  • Time sync page was unavailable
  • Dynamic DNS no-ip didn’t work
  • On the iPad the images were not always loaded (happened with large images and slow connection)
  • When performing a read change and something goes wrong during the reading of a module, sometimes the names in Home center disappeared
  • VMB7IN Energy values weren’t available at Home center service start up
  • VMB2BLE shades status weren’t correct at Home center service start up
  • When scrolling the web interface on a phone with inputs, an input could be triggered by accident while scrolling.

Improvements

  • Support for the new Velbus module VMB1RYNOS was added.
  • Some configuration from the Home center Windows has also been added to the web interface. We added a configuration page where you can execute: ‘Create backup’, ‘Restore backup’, ‘Read changes’ and ‘Full reset’.
  • ‘Rename outputs’, ‘Logic functions (rules)’, ‘User management’ no longer require a ‘restart service’, but only need a ‘reload config’. This makes that the changes are in effect after just a few seconds and clients no longer lose their connection.

Home center 2.7.1.13

This version contains some bug fixes since v2.7.1.1 v2.7.1.2 and v2.7.1.8

This version improves the stability of the connections with VMBTP8 and Home center server installed on Windows:

  • Unable to reconnect
  • Hanging HomeCenter.exe process.

For VMBHIS:

  • Improved stability for connections to SONOS players: in some cases no Home center client could connect to the VMBHIS. The VMBHIS had to be restarted.
  • The initial state of outputs could be wrong when opening the web app
  • Rename outputs: you can sort the list again.
  • Rules: better naming of values

We are expecting to have a bug fix version for iPhone and iPad soon available in the App Store.

Home center 2.7.1.8

This version contains some bug fixes since v2.7.1.2 and v2.7.1.1:

  • Subaddresses of VMBGPOD could not be changed through VMBHIS.
  • Calculation of energy measurements were not always correct (VMB7IN)
  • Connection management in the VMBHIS has been improved: sometimes it was not possible to connect after some time and the VMBHIS had to be restarted.
  • Invalid characters in module names (visible in Velbuslink when reading modules) could crash Home center.
  • Some internal fine tuning

If you have v2.7.1.2, a notification should be on the login page about the new version.

Go to the Settings on the VMBBHIS web interface and execute the ‘Update software’.

This is a BUGFIX version, we made available for all users who have 2.7.1.2 installed, even if your license updates have expired since 2.7.1.2 was released.

For non-VMBHIS users the same things apply.
The download of the setup including the Home center server is on the same page as v2.7.1.2.
