Vera Edge cannot detect AD2USB

Postby kevin » Fri Jan 09, 2015 2:00 pm

The Vera Edge in its current state does not detect the AD2USB - and since they have changed the structure of their filesystem and boot scripts, the instructions for the Vera Lite do not apply, so here are instructions for getting the AD2USB working with the Vera Edge:

ssh into your Vera Edge as root

cd /usr/bin
rm Start_serproxy.sh
vi Start_serproxy.sh
<paste script below>
<save + exit (esc :wq enter)
chmod +x Start_serproxy.sh
restart luup

Code: Select all
#!/bin/sh

InstID=$(cat /etc/cmh/PK_AccessPoint)

while [[ ! -f /var/run/cmh.stop ]]; do
        # Intentionally done in-loop b/c the device might
        # not be inserted at boot, and this will pick it up on Lua reload
        ProdID=$(lsusb|awk -F '[: ]' '/0403/ { print $8; }')
        rmmod ftdi_sio
        insmod ftdi_sio vendor=0x0403 product=$ProdID
        TTYNode=$(dmesg|awk '/ now attached to/ { print $NF; }'|tail -n 1)
        kill $(ps ax|awk "/serproxy/ /!$$/ { print $1; } " 2>/dev/null) 2>/dev/null
        kill $(ps ax|awk '/ser2net/ { print $1; }' 2>/dev/null) 2>/dev/null
        sleep 5 # Give LuaUPnP some time to startup
        echo "Running serproxy:   /usr/bin/serproxy 127.0.0.1 127.0.0.1 $InstID /dev/${TTYNode}"
        /usr/bin/serproxy 127.0.0.1 127.0.0.1 $InstID /dev/${TTYNode}
        sleep 1
done


To put the original back in-place:

rm /usr/bin/Start_serproxy.sh
ln -s /mios/usr/bin/Start_serproxy.sh /usr/bin
restart luup

When pasting this code into VI, it staggers about 10 spaces compounding for every line.

Is this correct? I am concerned about bricking my Vera Edge if this is not correct being a newbie.

thanks

added. Well,I put in that code and my Vera Edge could not detect my AD2USB. I removed the code using the described method and it still did not work. I deleted the plug-in and added it back. That did not help either.

I don't even know if this code is applicable. It is pretty old.

With VI you can disable indenting by pressing without quotes before you press i for insert. ':set noai' and then 'set paste' then you can press i to insert and paste your code in and it wont mux it up.

thanks Sean



Tried Code again with no success and thunder storm hitting so that's it for the night.

FYI, I had the adapter working well on my PC. I am wondering if there is a manual about getting this to work available that has not crossed my path.

Reboot in this instance should be "Restart Luup" I'm sorry for the confusion and will update the directions. Let me know if that helps! First, I would check for software updates from the Vera team to see if they have resolved the issues officially before trying these last resort steps.

Restart Luup or "restart luup" gives me command not found.

I called Vera and they fixed me up. They had to update the usb drivers in my unit. I have different code under the script file listed above but the code is less. I suspect the Ademco Plug-in must have added their own. In any case, I am up and going with the help of Vera.

Ya, this was a workaround by Vera users to get the device to work since Vera shipped a product that wasn't working correctly - glad you got it working - definitely recommend staying with official software rather than workarounds.

If the AD2USB works on a PC, then I suggest contacting Vera support.
