  1. Hi, I know that when I started working with the HC2 I struggled with some of the simpler stuff. In some case it was down to a lack of understanding of the concepts rather than the code. I decided to put together this Virtual Devices 101 for new people starting out. I put some of this together to answer a few posts but decided to bring it into one post here to make it easier for newer users to find, I am starting from the basics and if anybody has ideas on how to make it better please let me know Some Virtual device basics LABELS - enable the user to display a t
  2. Hi, After I put together the Virtual devices Introduction Tutorial I was asked would I do something similar for Scenes. I’ll preface this post (like the Virtual devices) that I am no expert but I am willing to document what I understand and it can be added to over time. It would be great if some of the experst could read through, fill in the coupelof gaps and let me know if I havesomething wrong or coudl do with better explanation I also start at a very basic level as some of the newer users people liked that with the virtual device tutorial I am also only going to Lua
  3. I have a doorbell (pictured) which I'm trying to integrate a USB into, but having problems. I've tried following the instructions in the included manual, and also from https://en.robbshop.nl/smarthome/z-wave-projects/z-wave-doorbel, but without any luck, I think because the doorbells (there are two, hence the two sets of white wires) have a light and so one side of them is connected to 12v power. Can anyone tell me how I can get this working? Thanks, M
  4. Hello please could someone help me. I have just bought a home center lite and created a fibaro id. I have selected remote access in my LAN settings but when I try to add HC it says " HC already added by other user. Please contact tech support " I have email a couple of days ago but I have had no response ?
  5. Hi All, Probably a really stupid question and i think i know how to resolve this, But with my scenes i get notifications telling me "Too many Instances" - I know on the scene you can type in the max number of instances - however what does this actually mean ?, I can run it more than "2" times or whatever the prescibed max number is. I'm assuming this is one of those things you want to set a parameter up that zeros it on a daily basis ? however have no idea how to do this, anyone able to walk me through an example please. Thanks in advance
  6. Apologies for what is probably a stupid question, but can someone please explain the purpose of the master / slave settings behind each of the devices? I'm sure I will kick myself when someone explains it, but I can't find a simple explanation of the purpose of this and / or how one goes about using / modifying it and why. Many thanks in advance for all and any help!
  7. Apologies for the newbie question but, is there a LUA IDE application / tool already available, or does everyone tend to use the one they feel comfortable with?
  8. Dear All, I want to get into learning LUA. It seems that this is the right way to move forward if anyone is to use the HC2 seriously. However, as a newbie (relatively) to programming, I want to first understand if I need to learn other languages besides LUA in order to get the most out of the HC2. Any advice on where I should start this adventure?
  9. Dear forum, As a newbie to LUA (although I have past experiences with C#, not extensive, again as a newbie) I'm interested in what other languages I also need to learn alongside LUA in order to be able to use / learn LUA. Are there any others I need to / should learn as well as LUA?
