Home center 2.7.3.18

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!

!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

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.
In case you don’t have this link, send us an e-mail, then we will send you the link.
