Hi,
  1. I like to use lightwave RF.
  2. Can I use / combine universal UCM with ETH03 and download UDP proticol as stated in the upgrade needed for lightwave RF comms?
  3. Do i have to use ETH02 when ETH03 is now here?

Yes You can use Universal UCM + ETH03 for Lightwave RF

Hi,

I would like to do this - can I just check that I should download the UDP firmware for ETH02 and apply to ETH03 and follow the instructions in the App note?

 

Thanks!

Eth03 is a different hardware platform from eth02 so the firmware is not interchangeable

Use the ETH03 universal firmware if you have an ETH03. The ETH02 and ETH03 are completely different modules and the firmware is not compatible between them.

Thanks that is what I had assumed, it seemed unlikely.

But I am not sure which parts of the LightwaverfAppNote.pdf are applicable? Do I just pickup at the "Comfigurator Programming" (page 9)? If so how do I programme the Wifilink IP address into the comfort? The steps described seem specific to the ETH02 device?

The lightwave RF application note was written for the ETH02

ETH03-Universal 1.15 supports UDP

However there is a problem with Lightwave
They have  changed their registration method with their new firmware
Regsiitration was by sending a lighting on or off command from the UCM but now a registration code is required, and that code has changed several times

We will send some instructions on how to go ahead

But it i quite worrying that their API commands have changed without warning

I agree that the unannounced API change is concerning however do you have a date when you can expect to release the revised instructions?

Originally, to register the UCM/Universal to Lightwave, you had to send any command from it while pairing

Now you have to send the string 001,!F*p\n

Add comma "," before any command in comfigurator response, such as turn on room 1 device 1,  ,!R1D1F1\n

This was not disclosed by Lightwave, it was detected by using wireshark

I forgot to say you need ETH03 Universal 1.15 firmware to support Lightwave for eth03
Download from http://www.cytech.biz/eth03_firmware.html

select UDP



For multiple commands into a single response, the correct format is :

    !FeP”<sequence name>”=<command>,<delay> ,( <command>,<delay>

eg
    001,!FeP"Test"=!R1D1F1,00:00:03,!R1D3F1<cr>
  or
  !FeP"Test"=!R1D1F1,
00:00:03,!R1D3F1<cr>
