Velbus

Home center 3.0.0.75

This brand new version brings some new features and some improvements!

Velbus

  • We added support for the VMB4AN: you can view the current values (*)
  • The time sync (NTP) to the bus often didn’t work. This is now solved in this version.

Visualization via the logging will be added in a future version.

Music

New: Frontier silicon

A total new range of music players supported! Music devices based on the Frontier Silicon chipset can now be operated from within Home center the same way Sonos is operated. This means you can stop / start the player, navigate through the current playlist, set volume, control the mute and integrate them in your Home automation system via the logic, so you can operate them through the buttons in your house and add them for example to the all off operation.

Manage music interfaces

You can now rename and remove unwanted music devices via the settings in the web interface.

2N Access unit

Now also the 2N access units are supported. The available buttons are available as toggles and inputs to operate or to use in the logic interface. They are detected automatically at startup and user name and password can be managed in the settings in the web interface.

Luxom

  • Reversed the order of the regimes, so they are in the same order as in PlusConfig.
  • Bugfix: when scanning different MIN ranges, thermostats and dimmers from previously scanned ranges couldn’t be operated anymore
  • When a Sonos was in the network before the Luxom DS88L was available, Home center didn’t connect automatically to the Luxom home automation system.

Improvements

  • Logging is now available in the Windows client via the About box.
  • The Windows client will now look for the home center server in all network interface (in case you have virtual networks active)
  • Improved start up of Home center server (previously could take up to 30 sec.)

Bugfixes

  • When adding new components to a zone, in some cases you couldn’t operate them immediately.

!Breaking change!

  • None, upgrading goes smoothly!

  • Velbus VMB7IN energy measurement now supports the liter and m³ and shows 2 decimals. Execute read changes to get the correct values!

!Breaking change!

  • Velbus momentaries are removed: please replace them manually with designated inputs!

Improvements

  • Windows client: shade button now works exactly like in the iOS app and Web app: going up and down now toggles in stead of separate function for the upper half and lower half of the button. Also it’s now more clear when the shade is open or closed.
  • Velbus: Macro’s are no longer created because they are obsolete, since all inputs are available. Existing macro’s are not removed and still work.
  • Windows client: from the ‘About’ screen you can now directly download the correct version of the Windows client (this will be useful in future versions of Home center)

Bug fixes

  • Web: background color of zones was not visible
  • Web: full rebuild of settings due to modifications since Chrome 43
  • Windows client: improved login: better message when trying to log in with a wrong username and password
  • Logic: rules which contain a ‘=’ in the URL didn’t open the correct web page.
  • Logic: input values where not evaluated correctly. Short press & long press
  • Luxom: dimmers, toggles and shades where sometimes displayed as inputs in stead of their real function
  • Luxom: possible blocking of port 2300 after executing read changes has been solved
  • Minor internal improvements
