........... I am wondering what is the black rectangle thingy next to the LEDs for.
It's a pushbutton for inclusion of new nodes.
Thanks, I knew about that but that is not what I was looking for. When the switch is pushed OR in the webGUI the button 'Start' is clicked on, the LED does not react. It used to blink continuously in v1.4 while in 'discovery' mode'.
Otherwise the LED's do work fine for RX and TX so I know the yellow one for inclusion does work.
In v1.4 a yellow LED was slowly blinking while in inclusion-mode; this was nice. For me this was in v1.4.1 to be exact.
Today I updated to 1.5 and not only is the (optional) switch now reversed, but the LED only blinks ones when it finishes.
The switch was for me easy to fix because I had pins for default-closed as well but the LED is a pity.
I'm running a serial gateway with a VeraLite UI7 with the updated UI7 files. Nice graphics!
It just works now!
I removed the Ethernet gateway device from the UI and added the new device as per description on the webside. For a short while I had the error ComFailure but found on the forum that in advanced this must be altered from 1 to 0.
Ok, I missed that news than. Will try that one of these days because have it still laying around. I remember the serial port was there but the device disapeard in the UI.
You should use an Arduino Nano for the Vera gateway as it has a hard time recognising the Uno board.
Are you sure?
An edge is running ui7 and then a serial gateway will not work. I had one running fine on my VeraLite until I 'upgraded' it to ui7. I never got it working until I built an Ethernet gateway.
Did this with an uno with 5100 shield. Runs perfectly, still hate ui7 though...
Hi, just teaming up because I have the exact same problem.
It is absolutely a software problem because this same hardware run fine with UI5.
Thuis non-FTDI problem has been mentioned before:
