Does anyone know which version of the C-Bus firmware (if any) that supports the request_zone_name C-Gate command?

According to the C-Gate manual some alarm panels will respond to a request_zone_name message with a zone_name event. I was hoping to use this feature to avoid the need to keep Comfort and C-Bus toolkit in sync with regards to zone names. This is to improve my Indigo/C-Bus plugin.

Thanks
kieran

I think that command is not supported in UCM/Cbus now

Why would you need this feature?

My code currently generates devices in Indigo based on the C-Gate project. However, for integration with Comfort this requires me to replicate all the zone configuration into the C-Bus toolkit. I would rather be able to query Comfort directly via request_zone_name to avoid needing to manage the configuration in two places.

This is not an essential feature but rather simply a nice to have.

Thanks.

I assume your code runs in a computer. Could it pull the zone names from the cclx file?

The plugin itself runs on a Mac and hence the user would likely need to copy the file across. Nonetheless there are many ways to solve this problem and I certainly have a working solution at this time.

I was merely surprised to find this aspect of the specification missing.
