Here are the steps to create an Insteon PLM Template. This driver is written entirely in Ruby. Please consider this driver complete, and is in Release Candidate 1. I'm sure there are still a few bugs (although we've ironed most of them out now). The more people testing this code, the more bugs we can find, and get this to a release state. Once it's in release state, it will be added to sqlcvs and offered via a 'quick' update.
This driver supports ONLY the Powerlinc Modem model (PLM)#2412S, #2413S, #2412U and #2413U. The code will NOT work for a model #2414 also known as a Powerlinc CONTROLLER (PLC).
NOTE: I am expecting a PLC to arrive in the mail in the next few days. Support for that device will be sooner than later.
- Febuary 2, 2012 - PLC support will NOT be added to this driver -Aviator
- Febuary 3, 2012 - Thanks to the work of trippleg, we now have support for the 2412N as well. -Aviator
This driver now supports the Smartlinc 2412N as well. Please use template 2203
Simplehomenet's EZBridge/EZServ products will be added once this code is stable. These products are a 'wrapper' for the PLM, and hence, use the same code. Integration will be a matter of adding the 'wrapper' code. (which is done)
Setting up the Template
- The template is Plug and Play, configuration should have been taken care of for you.
- Goto LinuxMCE Admin Website-->Wizard-->Devices-->Interfaces
- Add device-->Template Id 1932 Insteon PLM
- Add device -->Template Id 2203 Smartlinc
- Now, in the COM PORT ON PC, you can select the com port it's on. UPDATE I didn't see any "COM PORT ON PC" field. You wil need to reload the router first, then you see the "COM PORT ON PC" field. 8/9/08 Williammanda
TODO Other than looking on the motherboard for the com port label and guess and check methods, what else can be done to identify the correct com port?
- select Update (at the bottom)
