The UCM/Universal to LightwaveRF can be found at http://www.comfortforums.com/forum94/3066.html

I'm interfacing with a LightwaveRF WIFIlink device. In general it works,but in cases where I have a response with multiple actions, each of which sends commands to the WfiLink, I can see the commands going out over the network with Wireshark but the WifiLink only seems to respond to the first command (with an "OK" response. It's as if the commands are coming too fast, or the WifiLink cannot recieve a new command until the first has been processed.
Is there a way to make these work more reliably? May there's a way to wait until the OK response has been received before sending the next command?
Cheers,
Keith

The UCM/Universal  does not wait for the OK reply from Lightwave

This is because the Universal UCM is not specifically tailored for the Lightwave wifilink - it sends programmed commands in the list

You can work around by inserting a 1 second delay between commands
using Do Response after x seconds

This short interval should be enough time for the wifi link to respond

OK, thanks.
It might be worth updating the application note to reflect this.
Cheers,
Keith

Yes we should certainly do that

Keith, I've been asking for a pause command for quite some time. Feel free to add your voice.

This has been brought up in the last R&D meeting. There may be a way to implement an inline delay in firmware
