Zwave Commander Server Documentation and questions

Postby ericlo » Fri May 14, 2010 4:35 pm

Hi,
I'm a newbee in this area and I'm really interesting in your Zwave Commander server SW. Where can I get documentation ?
I' havent installed this SW yet ( I'm Mac User and I need to find a PC or try to use VMWare) so maybe there are more explanations once the application has been installed...
Is it possible to drive any type of Zwave devices or is there some restrictions regarding suppliers ? regarding contry also ? ( I'm living in France)
Your Iphone apps is really great ! but I wonder if there is any SDK available in oder to design specific G.U.I ( Web or Smartphone interface)

Hope you can help me
Waiting for your comments
Best regards.

There is a readme.txt but it makes some assumptions you know what ZWave is and you have a ControlThink USB ThinkStick that works for your area (Europe). Obviously Zwave signals are different in the US and Europe so you have to make sure you have a European model.

Yes except for locks. It does all lights, modules, and thermostats as long as they are Zwave.

See above. Must have Euro model devices and ThinkStick.

You can't design a specific GUI for Zwave Commander but there are apps out there that do allow that like CommandFusion.

Thanks for your answers !

I heard, and read on your forum, that ControlThink SDK is discontinued .
What does it mean regarding Zwave commander Server ? Do you have already another solution ? will you still use ControlThink usb stick until you can't ?
Is there any specific problem regarding Europe ?

Regards.

I am going to ride it as long as I can until this project has matured...

No just make sure you have the European version of the Controlthink USB Stick. Other than that no problems reported.

For one user doing CommandFusion UI for Zwave Commander he needed the current status of the lights returned so on every HTTP call to the server I return the lights status. He will be making a post about CommandFusion and making his finished CF Skin available.
