Playing with GC100


Recently I got GC100 in my hand to test it with Plutohome. By default GC100 has IP So, that howto suggests to connect it to the PC using crossover, change IP of PC to something like to be in one network and access to the GC100 properties via web interface – So, I followed by that recommendations. I changed IP of GC100 to and exclude it from DHCP range. After that I put CG100 into Pluthome network and tried to add it but without luck. It seems that devices is not accessible by some reason. I even couldn’t ping it.

Well, after that I tried another way to install GC100. I discovered that core has virtual interface eth1:100 which builds network 192.168.1.* for GC100. I reset my device to factory settings (it can be done by connecting pins 7 and 2 on connector serial 1 with a flat bladed screw driver during power up) and let to Pluto discover it. But unfortunately, again without luck. I saw in tcpdump output that Pluto asked GC100 by its factory IP three times but devices didn’t answer by some reason. I connected GC100 to my Pluthome core using crossover. So, it should work but it doesn’t.

Anyway, it’s the matter of time. I’m sure it’ll work soon 🙂

Doorbell of future


NetStreams, the global leader in networked entertainment systems and technology based on Internet Protocol, has introduced the NetStreams DoorLinX DX100, the world’s first IP-Based doorbell / intercom system. Featuring an integrated microphone, speaker, and matching doorbell unit, DoorLinX allows any MP3 audio file, including a recorded voice, to be used as a door chime and to have different sounds associated with different doors or points of entry (it’s needed to be integrated with DigiLinx audio/video distribution system).

The DoorLinX can be easily integrated with NetStreams TouchLinX touch screens or the KeyLinX KL200 (I hope it may work with others systems as well). In advanced, mix togehter DoorLinX and Panasonic surveillance camera you’ll get a video doorphone.
