This brand new version brings some new features and some improvements!
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.
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.
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.
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.)
When adding new components to a zone, in some cases you couldn’t operate them immediately.
This update mainly contains some improvements and bugfixes.
New in this update
Feedback from inputs is now visible in all clients.
Velbus VMB7IN energy measurement now supports the liter and m³ and shows 2 decimals. Execute read changes to get the correct values!
Velbus momentaries are removed: please replace them manually with designated inputs!
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)
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
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 v188.8.131.52, 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 184.108.40.206 installed, even if your license updates have expired since 220.127.116.11 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 v18.104.22.168.
