    How to enable Status Report (MMI) feedback from PCI for 3rd party integration

    Question:
    How to enable Status Report (MMI) feedback from PCI for 3rd party integration

    Answer

    Issue:
    Some third party devices which connect to C-Bus rely on MMI feedback from a PCI to provide status feedback of C-Bus lighting groups. Monitor mode is not enabled on PCIs by default and needs to be enabled for MMI feedback to be provided.

    Product Line:
    C-Bus Wired

    Environment:
    Windows 7
    Windows 8
    Windows 10

    Solution

    1. Confirm in device manager what COM port your PCI is connected to
    2. Open Diagnostic Utility
    3. Set the connection port to the respective one found in device manager
    4. Connect to C-Bus
    5. Go to the C-Bus menu and select Set Mode.
    6. Select Monitor mode under Interface Options 1.
    7. Confirm traffic in log output every approximately 3 seconds.
