When we announced TellStick ZNet Lite we told you that the device was prepared for local control.
We have been working on this and it is now time to start testing. We want the input from all you developers out there.
We have prepared an early beta firmware with the local api activated. If you want to help us evaluate this and give your input to us, please sign up for this [[beta:4 here]].
This is a closed beta for now since a custom beta-firmware must be loaded into your TellStick ZNet Lite.
A public beta might be released in an official firmware at a later stage.
Some users have reported problems when using TellStick Net together with the Huawei router B593. Thanks to the users Ville and Nils, there is a solution to the problem.
1. Check firewall security level.
2. Find Telldus NET MAC address in ARP table.
3. Open Security / MAC filtering
4. Add the MAC address to the white list
5. Turn on ICMP
We have just released a well requested feature, hiding of devices.
Many Z-Waves support multi channels. This means that one device may have several devices in Telldus Live! This is for instance in-wall receivers with dual relays, power strips and others. Sometimes you don't need all nodes a Z-Wave device may offer and those devices will then clutter the interface.
By hiding unused devices it is also possible to prevent controlling of sensitive devices by mistake.
A new api-call has been added,
device/setIgnore. This works exactly the same as for sensors.
Ignored devices are not returned by
devices/list. Just as
sensors/list there is now a parameter
includeIgnored to retrieve all devices.
