Virtual device stops working

Question

Hi,

 

I am using Global cache (WiFi2IR) to control my all IR devices with Fibaro HC-2 (4.140).

 

1. When there is no internet at that time HC-2 is not able to communicate with Global cache.

2. Certain time i have to press VD button multiple time to send proper IR command.

First... I have never seen the Global Cache unit. Just read abut them....

 

If you login and don´t do anything for a while, you maybe hit some session timeouts. If so, I would suggest you look for some sort of keep-alive function in global cache. If there i none, you maybe have to ask for something repeatedly from HC2 in the VD loop. I do this kind of thing in my DSC alarm integration engine. You could look at the loop and check for an existing connection (i.e "pollTimer"). *Maybe* you have to do something similar...

Hi @Ananta Creation,

 

I have HC2 on 4.140 and Global cache (IP2IR) and all working fine. I have made virtual device remote controllers as copy of the original ones:

And I use following code to send commands to IP2IR:

To use above code you need to setup IP Address and TCP Port on general tab of the VD, and then just change sendCommand string and text for last command (zadnja komanda) that will be shown on label.

 

All commands I learned from original remote controllers using iLearn application that can be downloaded from
