    Default CQC supports C-Bus now

    Hey guys, just wanted to let you all know that CQC now has a C-Bus driver. This initial driver is based on the public protocol documentation, but it provides the core functionality most folks would want. We are waiting for Clipsal to get their C-Gate program so that it will run as a service, and then we'll convert over to using that, and expand on the driver features.

    Here is the preliminary documentation on the driver. As mentioned there, you will have to register with Clipsal before we can give you the driver (unlike all our other drivers, which just ship with the product) because our drivers are in our own CML language, and it is shipped as source code, and they are a bit paranoid about that. Once we move to the C-Gate version, that will no longer be an issue.

    Hey Dean,

    Do I have to pay extra for the C-Bus driver? or is it included in the overall CQC price

    Gosh, funny you should ask :wink: It's free with the product, as are all CQC drivers. Rohan did the C-Bus driver, so he would be the horse's mouth on this particular driver. What part of the horse that makes me is probably best left undiscussed!

    Quick update.

    I have been redesigning my C-Bus lighting page on CQC and thought I would show off a bit.

    Cheers

    BTW, Rohan (who did the C-Bus driver) has been studying the new C-Gate protocol docs and is going to be converting our driver over to work via C-Gate. This will greatly increase the capabilities and also will allow us to openly include the driver in the product (instead of requiring each user to get permission from Clipsal, as is the case now.)
