These are the changes in the new Comfort Version 7.005 beta version to be available soon

Firmware Upgrade
  1. Implemented firmware upgrade UCM/USB, ETH  and KT03 by Bus while it was only possible to upgrade these by Direct Connection to PC. This requires Comfigurator 3.6.x
  2. Firmware Upgrade erase flash reduced time to 2 seconds
  3. Upgrade Comfort By Bus. If failed, v? will give reply so prevent delay and will not require F0 if flash erased
  4. Watchdog. increased because of KT03 erase flash
Write/Read KT03 by UCM
  1. Allows UCM version 7 to read/write KT03 instead of by direct KT03 USB connection. This takes much longer, about 30 minutes but it may save a long trip to site
Door Station
  1. Door station Ringer ring cadence make more distinctive, ie 0.5 secs on, 1 sec off 
  2. Doorphone menu keys 5,6,8,9 also turn off door station and end menu so call is not recorded in voicemail
GSM
  1. Fixed BUG from 5.210 when GSM is present as backup and the phone line has no dial tone, and "Wait for Dial Tone" is unchecked, the dialout should be by the phone instead of GSM
  2. For GSM Fix bug if phone type is programmed but number is blank then wrong comparison caller id
  3. Added query for control menu eg SMS (401) will give reply (401- On) or (401-Off) or (401-128). However commands will not get the status reply
  4. GSM Add query (1) for security mode state. Reply will be "Security Off", "Away Mode", "Night Mode" "Day Mode" or "Vacation Mode"
  5. SMS for control menu  must include Group ,ie (40...) even if Groups are not programmed.
  6. SMS for control menu will work even if control group 0 has no words
RS485 Communications
  1. Broadcast messages on RS485 shortened to 20 ms so there is less delay on the bus
Counters/Sensors
  1. Extended sensors RS485 message has 2 bytes sensors. MS byte is optional. Sensor message in UCM will have 2 bytes
  2. Counters support 16 bits value in Actions
  3. Counter RS485 message allows 2 bytes with Most Significant  byte optional
Arming/Disarming
  1. Keyarm security followed by autoarm action will not ask for exit. Previous, it will still ask for exit.
ID Setting by Comfigurator 3.6
  1. Implement ID setting commands from Comfigurator
UCM commands/messages
  1. Implemented cm message automatic report when any control menu item changed. For use by iphone and android apps to avoid constant query of CM  CM must be sent first time, then Comfort will send the cm message automatically when the feedback changes Require UCM version 7 firmware
  2. Z? Zone bits query will  report all zones up to max so that virtual inputs state are also reported.
  3. DA command returns 2 bytes RA
  4. Fixed vocab and sentence bytes in 1 line to 32. if > 32 bytes in a line send VP error
Actions
  1. Added new action 119 Eventlog Tracking. Eventlog will record  custom action 119 alarm tracking with number parameter
  2. Added action 154 Virtual Input On or Off
  3. Added action  153,0,sensor - save input value to sensor no
  4. Actions support 16 bits arithmetic for future
UCM/Cbus
  1. Initial update of 80 zones to UCM/CBus. If Comfort has more than 80 zones, the higher zone numbers  report will disable the Zones application on Cbus. This can be fixed by upgrading UCM/Cbus to 6.083
Bugs Fixed
  1. Fix bug from 5.189  If LEM Input #1 is Virtual alll LEM zones have trouble.
  2. Virtual  zones which are not part of physical SEM and LEM will be shown on the keypad LCD
  3. Fixed BUG from 5.210 when GSM is present as backup and the phone line has no dial tone, and "Wait for Dial Tone" is unchecked, the dialout should be by the phone instead of GSM
  4. For GSM Fix bug if phone type is programmed but number is blank then wrong comparison caller id
Known Issues
  1. When the door station dials to a phone, it may announce "Doorbell Wrong code" and not go to talk to Door station
  2. When the Arm keys are set to "Need Code", iPhone and Android app are unable to arm (Not a new problem)
  3. Actions Increment and Decrement Counters work but they do not report the correct value to UCM and on the Comfort Bus (from 6.050)
  4. Action 151 "Initialise sensor " gives the wrong value for the extended 2 byte sensor value eg set sensor value to FF reports sensor Value as FFFF instead of FF00
  5. Reminder Enable function does not work for Reminder Numbers 9 to 16. Reminder Enables for 9 to 16 are the same as Reminder 1 to 8. This affects Scheduled Reminders only.
  6. During Vocabulary upgrade, Sentence upgrade may fail with Error 25. If this happens do a Sentence Upgrade by itself, not a ful  Vocabulary upgrade
Changed default date to 26 September 2012
