Keypads...

Postby Near76 » Sat Nov 03, 2007 5:17 pm

Has anyone played around with the Simply Automated keypads. Since each button can be programmed to send a Link ID when pressed, can the MLS plugin trigger off of this?

Not sure what you are trying to do but if you are asking if the plug in see a button push on a keypad and updates in the plug in and on the touchscreen I can say that it does and its very quick.

I just want to use a simply automated keypad to fire off an MLS event. I read on the UPB forum that there wasn't keypad support in the UPB plugin, but I guess that was old information based on your comment above that this is supported.

I have a keypad with the rocker and 4 buttons. How do I get MLS to see the buttons...right now it just sees the rocker status. Thanks!

Am I the only one trying to get Simply Automated keypads to work with MLS?

... uh... I use keypad buttons in Insteon...

you're saying you see "status" of the rockers? meaning you see a signal of "on" state or "off" state or something like that?

I see the state of normal dimmer switches, much like you do with Insteon. However, UPB keypads, are a different story. Keypad buttons can be programmed to send unique UPB Link messages, but currently the MLS plugin has no way of triggering based on receiving one of them. Until it can, I have no way of making a keypad do anything in MLS. Does that make sense? Thanks!
