Re: Mounting flanges for BCS 460

Give a call over to Brewers Hardware. It's not on their site, but they might be able to hook you up.

My first BCS was a very early 460 and it had come with them. I can't recall if they were optional at the time.

Re: Updating firmware via USB DFU

Can you try using a different computer to load the drivers? The new firmware will fix the sporadic lockup issue.

Re: Updating firmware via USB DFU

I don't have a clear answer for you how to fix this. We're going to have someone start working on troubleshooting the flash processing next week to see what we can do to make this foolproof. In the mean time, if you want to send it to Brewers Hardware, they will flash it and ship it back for free. T...

Re: Updating firmware via USB DFU

I would start by going into control panel device manager and showing hidden devices. Remove all you have added. Go back and only load the libusbK drivers.

Re: HowTo: Voice control of BCS with Amazon Alexa

Double check the IP you entered into the javascript code. That needs to be your home IP/port for AWS to reach your BCS to control it. Looks like something is wrong there.

Re: HowTo: Voice control of BCS with Amazon Alexa

If I ever get time, my goal is to rewrite this as a plugin to another program called openHAB. It's mainly for home automation stuff, but controlling the BCS through there would give you Alexa, Homekit/Siri and other control options in one place.

Re: HowTo: Voice control of BCS with Amazon Alexa

I wish I could help you, but I just don't have the time at the moment to dig into their new console setup and figure this out. One of the issues I've had with Amazon over the period of time I've been doing smart home skills (I have 2 other ones) is that they are a continuous moving target. I applaud...

Re: Unable to use BCS Finder- missing DLL

If it is an older BCS, then you're probably on the 3.x firmware. You'll need the old finder for it. http://demo.embeddedcc.com/downloads/BCSfinder.exe

Re: BCS-482 Can't change set points

Do you have the process running while you're trying to edit it? You need to stop the process.
