Subsequent, plug the USB-to-serial adapter right into a USB port in your machine and fix it to a powered CM11A interface. You’ll have to interrogate the equipment for the serial port that the working approach assigned to the interface. you are able to do this through finding the right tty equipment dossier within the /dev listing by way of issuing a ls /dev/tty* command within the terminal window. more uncomplicated nonetheless, load up the Arduino IDE and choose the Tools→Serial Port menu choice. In my case, the machine identify of the CM11A is /dev/tty. usbserial, as proven in determine 24, The Arduino instruments menu showing the USB serial adapter name. word the identify of the recent equipment course because you might want to seek advice from it within the Heyu configuration dossier. * * * determine 24. The Arduino instruments menu showing the USB serial adapter identify Now that the CM11A is hooked up to and famous through your computing device, obtain the Heyu resource code from the Heyu. org site, uncompress the tarball through the tar -zxvf heyu-2. nine. three. tar. gz command. Then, practice a . /Configure;make;make set up cycle to put in the compiled software. if you happen to use a Mac, you want to have the Mac developer instruments put in earlier than continuing.  while you are utilizing a Linux machine, ensure you have the mandatory gcc bring together and make instruments put in. for instance, when you are utilizing a Debian-based Linux distribution like Ubuntu, factor sudo apt-get set up build-essential from the terminal window to obtain and set up the compiler and linker instruments. Then, execute the standard . /Configure, make, and sudo make set up to bring together the resource and set up the heyu executable and dependencies in your laptop. besides the heyu executable, a x10. conf configuration dossier is put in within the /etc/heyu listing. Open this dossier for read-write modifying (ex: sudo vi /etc/heyu/x10. conf). there are many strategies that may be set within the x10. conf dossier, however the one we’re so much enthusiastic about now's the serial port route to the CM11A that you simply pointed out prior. # Serial port to which the CM11a is hooked up. Default is /dev/ttyS0. TTY /dev/tty. usbserial Use your favourite textual content editor to go into the serial port price that fits the positioning of your CM11A equipment. retailer the dossier and try the settings by way of first launching the Heyu nation engine through a terminal window with the command: > heyu engine If no blunders are stated, you’re fit because the engine daemon came upon the gadget and is working effectively within the history. it's also possible to try out getting into heyu details for extra information about the Heyu configuration. Now, within the related terminal input this: > heyu visual display unit This will computer screen the interplay of the CM11A with different X10 units. Assuming you might have set the housecode of the PLW01 wall swap to H3, input this command: > heyu on h3 That should still activate the change and whole the circuit for no matter what electric machine (such as a ceiling lamp) it really is routing electrical energy to. you might want to additionally see the terminal window working the Heyu computer screen approach document the transmittal of the command: 07/25 12:45:34 sndc addr unit three : hu H3 (_no_alias_) 07/25 12:45:34 sndc func On : hc H Turn off the change by way of issuing an off command to the H3 gadget: > heyu off h3 07/25 12:50:17 sndc addr unit three : hu H3 (_no_alias_) 07/25 12:50:18 sndc func Off : hc H If those instructions fail to show the activate and rancid, test one other X10 module, like an AM486 equipment module.
