Re: AlertMe Hub - Yes, it's Linux

Nice progress. What I am really hoping to figure out is how the Zigbee Sensors pair up with the device, and then use that knowledge to get them to pair up with a cheap USB Zigbee stick-- like what I got from Telegesis. Then I can pair the sensors to my PC directly and bypass the hub-- or possibly us...

Re: AlertMe Hub - Yes, it's Linux

Ok, so I did this for my Iris hub and got the following.... (same TTL pin order) At the end, I don't get a login screen. It says ok, and then the terminal appears to put out garbage. I don't know if they change the terminal speed or what--- maybe it goes encrypted or something???!? Any ideas? ------...

Re: AlertMe Hub - Yes, it's Linux

Just the hub. The sensors are around $20 it appears.

Goto Lowes.com to look.

The hub also has two USB ports on in. Looks like they are USB masters (same interface that is on your PC).

Re: AlertMe Hub - Yes, it's Linux

There are $99 at Lowes. I live in the United States. The internal circuit board says it is a Alertme.com mini hub v2. 2011.

Re: AlertMe Hub - Yes, it's Linux

You never know. I imagine they figured if you had access to the hardware, you'd have control of the system anyway. I got a Lowe's Iris Smarthub made by alert me and I see a 4 pin header on there. Can I just hook the wires directly up from the COM port on a PC? No level translation needed? I see anot...

Re: Zigbee pairing with other system

I think what happens is it logs in, and then expects some sort of register write from the coordinator. If it doesn't get that within some window, it assumes it paired to the wrong thing and moves on to look for other pans.

I have no idea what they would be

Zigbee pairing with other system

Has anyone tried to pair any of the alertme.com hardware with an different Zigbee system? I have a door sensor and a Telegesis usb stick. I create a pan with the USB stick, and power up the door sensor. I see the door sensor say NEWNODE and identifies itself as a SED.. The device does this over and ...
