    Can you compile the I-timemanager as it is installed by the AMX installer? It's under AMX Control Disk/Solutions/iTimeManager.

    Maybe the module file i!-TimeManagerMod.tko has corrupted data. I looked at the file size, it is 242 kB on my module file. When I try to compile your code "Time manager" everything works fine. And it looks that your compiler finds your module file, because otherwise it would report an error "File [ i!-TimeManagerMod.tko ]could not be found"

    Yeeeesssssssssssssssssss!

    Thanks guy!

    Now the compilator dosen't error messages, but the module seem to dosen't works.

    I read in an other post, as I need a DNS address, somebody know how I can do that if I don't have a DNS server?
  • kbeattyAMXkbeattyAMX Junior Member Posts: 358
    Many times you can use the gateway address for the DNS address because the router (gateway) probably registered a DNS on the internet. I loaded the iTimemanager from AMX and it seems to work fine. I'd try down loading it again. Just so that I understand. iTimemanager just sets the controller clock and gives you triggers for sunrise, sunset, DST and some other triggers. Right?
  • DenisDenis Junior Member Posts: 163
    Right.

    My goal is to set an automaic DST feature in the program. I bid on a new job where the client ask to me if he will can set an alarm clock with tuner and opening curtains. ( and I told yes :D)

    Now I have to build an alarm clock. Due to my lack of experience it's a chalenge each time as I program a new system.

    Welcome in this wonderful word of automation! :)

    Open NS2 and click on "diagnostics" scroll to the bottom and click "Network Addresses" on the pop up click on "Get DNS Information". Most likely you have nothing entered so enter the IP address of your gateway router and click "Set DNS Information" & reboot.

    When you compile and upload a new program enable "Diagnostics" as soon as you can. You'll have to keep trying until you can connect in order to see the start up sequences and at some point you should see the attemp to connect and retrieve data from the NTP server. If you're having DNS issues it will say that it is unable to resolve DNS name or something to that affect. Either way watch the diagnostics and see what happens.

    There's also i! Scheduler that alot of folks use to schedule events which may already include the time manager features and also provide you with the scheduling features you need for the alarm clock and shades. I've never used it but some here on the forum have to controll HVAC, lighting and I would imagine audio for alarm clock type feature like you desire.

    If you have the time I would recommend writing your own code to handle the scheduling since it isn't all thast difficult, just time consuming.
