    In other commercial SCADA systems, if a value is coming in wrong from the data source, until it gets fixed, you have the option to scan inhibit that point and can manually override it.

    Of course if you manually override the point, the point is marked somehow such as a different color.

    Just a thought.

    It would be nice if there was a checkbox on the login screen that would say something like: "Please do not warn me if the browser is not supported".

    Could compound events be setup with a time condition? An example: Light is turned on and fan has been running (both conditions true) for 3 min?

    I understand you could set this up through each point and then do compound events based off that, but it gets a little confusing.

    When you have allot of points, and are utilizing compound events, the reference numbers in the condition window can get confusing. The only way to figure out your statement is to reference each point by expanding the tree in the event types. This can be very time consuming.

    Can the compound events be setup like the Meta points? This would allow you to assign your own name for the variables in your condition window?

    Just a little post in case anyone is interested. The Ted 5000 monitors power coming in to your home via both phase wires. It comes with a web server which you can easily point Mango to and exact values from the device.

    I created a data source of a HTTP Retriever, then set the URL to http://ted5000/api/LiveData.xml. You can set the update period to whatever you want.

    You can then add your points. Here is an example:
    To monitor the current power draw:
    Data Type: Numeric
    Value RegEx: <CostNow>(.*?)</CostNow>

    That should do it!

    This may be in a newer version, please forgive me if it is. I was wondering if there is a way to have the alarm page automatically update upon an alarm. If a user leaves up the alarm screen, and an alarm is activated while the screen is loaded, the new alarm does not show up (unless you refresh)… If you wanted to leave up a screen, showing you active alarms, currently it has to be manually refreshed…

    Is it possible to be able to name event detectors so that the detected event name is also displayed in the Alarms page? If the temperature outside is below 32 degrease, and I have an event detector set to provide an “information warning” about this scenario, the current information event may say something like this:

    *The “Outside Temperature” has been below “32 degrease” for more then “1 second.” *

    This is great, but it would be nice to have the ability to name this event. A nice way to display this in the alarm page may look like this:

    Event: “Below Freezing Outside”
    The “Outside Temperature” has been below “32 degrease” for more then “1 second.”

    This is a basic example, but someone who is operating a device may not know what the points are for a certain event. If you could name the event detector, the operator would know exactly what this warning is about.

    Protocol:
    It would be great to many people if you had a standard serial port protocol capable of phasing and sending strings. A serial protocol may include, com port, connection speed, startup send string (if any), and polling interval/ update on string received.

    Points:
    To add points you could assign a name and then use RegEx expression to phase the value out of the captured com string. Also per point you could have the ability to send a command (if needed) to trigger the data to be sent…

    Example,
    The VK01 serial temperature reader can be connected via a com port at 9600 baud. This reader has 4 temperature sensor connecting points. After connected to the device (after if has been configured) every two seconds the device spits out a string of all four temperature reading values. Looking like this:

    Sensor 1,+51.57, DegF, Hi, +198.16, DegF, Low, -155.33, DegF,
    Sensor 2,+71.93, DegF, Hi, +191.86, DegF, Low, -157.00, DegF,
    Sensor 3,+64.96, DegF, Hi, +185.00, DegF, Low, +29.75, DegF,
    Sensor 4,+116.15, DegF, Hi, +185.00, DegF, Low, +29.75, DegF,

    Using RegEx, one could filter and create a point value for each sensor. From the example above, you could also create points for the High and Low values reported for each sensor. This example would require no string values to be sent.

    There are many more devices which would work off this protocol including zwave, and x10 lighting. My intent with a protocol such as this would be to connect it to the ELK MK1 security/automation controller. This device is capable of sending any sort of ASCII characters to a comport device based on triggers defined in the system. It can also start events based on any strings received.
