As of the OpenHAB 2.4 release, the Lutron binding should now work with HomeWorks QS systems, at least to some extent. I am looking for help from people who can test it out and provide feedback so that we can work toward full HWQS support. I do not have access to a HomeWorks QS system myself.
Here is the way things stand today:
Switches, dimmers, fan controllers, switch and relay modules, CCI and CCO modules, seeTouch and Tabletop seeTouch keypads, Pico keypads, VCRX, shades, and motorized drapes should all work properly (at least in theory). If they don’t, I would appreciate details on exactly what problems users encounter.
HWQS Keypad models which are not also supported on RadioRA 2 will not (yet) be explicitly supported by the binding. However, it should be possible to support most or all keypads by simply using the keypad or ttkeypad things and selecting model “Generic”, or by using the virtualkeypad thing (which supports up to 200 buttons/LEDs).
Auto-discovery may work only partially, or may not work at all. This needs to be tested. It would also help to see examples of the XML configuration file (DbXmlInfo.xml) from the HWQS processor. Auto-discovery relies on this file.
Timeclock support needs testing. The current support was aimed at RA2 systems, and may need some tweaks for HWQS.
Many HWQS features not also supported by RadioRA 2 systems still need to be implemented. These include:
• Switch/dimmer device actions, including double-tap and hold.
• System variables
• Shade groups
• Double-tap and hold actions on keypad buttons.
• Flash and rapid-flash settings on keypad button LEDs.
Feedback regarding how to prioritize these, and any other missing features, would be helpful.
Finally, support for Lutron venetian blinds and horizontal sheer blinds is not available yet, but is coming soon. If anyone has Lutron blinds in their RadioRA 2, HomeWorks QS, or Caseta system (if Caseta supports blinds), and is willing to test the new blind thing, please let me know! You would need to be running either 2.4, or a 2.5 snapshot or milestone release.
