  1. Improved operation and  of Sensor 2 byte values. 2 bytes sensor value can be negative ie signed.
  2. Keypad Function key which has "Need Code" enabled fixed BUG was not able to accept code to trigger the Response. Eg iPhone/android app Arm keys which have need code enabled cannot arm the security system.
  3. Fixed BUG dfrom 6.050 - Action code for Increment and Decrement counter did not report correct value to UCM port.
  4. Zone Settings > "Announce Zone" setting has been enabled.
  5. Fixed occasional problem after upgrade where Keypad requests text version and Comfort reports the wrong value leading to continuous query by KP and reply by Comfort causing the system seeming to hang until Comfort is reset
  6. Output No 255 is ignored in action  code - it does not turn on all outputs
Known Bugs
  1. False Communications failure alarms may be reported occasionally
  2. Sending SMS with UCM/GSM does not show the zone names
  3. Mutliply action does not work
  4. Copy counters  did not work
  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.

Is there a download link or will it be advertised to Comfigurator shortly?

How does the negative number Sensor values work?

Can it be set by a DA command, s! or both? How does s? report a negative number?

Can we have an example please?

Thanks,
Ingo

The sensor values are now in 2 bytes in twos complement
eg
0x0001 means +1
0xFFFF means -1
0x8000 means -32768

The old format was 1 byte 00 to FF, it is now reported as two bytes to maintain compatibillty
so sensor value of 0xFF is reported as 0x00FF
The 1 byte values are positive only

This caters for sensors which may report negative values

There will be Actions  to support comparison of sensors in future, the arithmetic for addition and subtraction will be signed

Comfort firmware 7.009 has a bug which may cause false Communications Failure alarms occasionally when the bus has noise
A new release will fix this problem. If anyone has this problem please downgrade to 6.028 for the time being

Hi

Presumably if you are suggesting rollback to 6.x firmware then this is an issue with all 7.x ULT firmware then.

Are UCM v7's immune to this noise then?

UCM v 7 is not affected
Only Comfort firmware. if your system does not have communications failure then you do not need to roll back
