HomeSeer and Stargate SG-IP Problem

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I have had my JDS Stargate SG-IP for about a year and have been very happy with it, but have determined that interfacing it to HomeSeer would very advantageous.
However, I ran into an interesting problem when trying to use HomeSeer and the JDS Stargate plug-in with my Stargate SG-IP.

I was able to install HomeSeer and the JDS Stargate plug-in on a newly built PC running Windows XP Pro. HomeSeer was able to communicate with the SG-IP through the plug-in and I was able to control the SG-IP much the same way that the JDS Mega Controller does.

I am running the JDS WebX and HomeRunner on my LAN connected PCs and Tablets for remote control of the Stargate and have found that trying to control the SG-IP through the WebX webpage and the HomeRunner application, caused the SG-IP to become very sluggish and eventually lockup so that I had to shutdown HomeSeer and reset the SG-IP.

I am beginning to think that HomeSeer and the JDS Stargate plug-in is really meant to work with a Stargate Lite without the IP interface.

So I am wondering if there is a solution to this dilemma or will I have to remove the Stargate IP interface or just not use it if I want to pursue using HomeSeer and the Stargate together?
Regards,
TCIII

I purchased a JDS Stargate a while back and am now starting to look into setting it up. I'm totally new to home automation. I'm hoping you can help me get started. I just came across your book and got some idea what to do but still not quite sure how to get started. I want to start out by controlling some lights in the basement but not sure what do I need to get started. Like do I get X10 or Insteon? If I want to be able to control the lights via a brower from my Mogul ppc 6800 or my desktop, can I write my own interface? I would really appreciate it if you can offer me some guidance.

Thank you
