    AIMEE Climate Control POLL

    As you all may know the every impending release of AIMEE is only a matter of light years away....

    Myself and Garry have been looking at possible features for future advances and

    improvments in later versions,

    one of those proposed features is a AIMEE controlled climate control system

    What we need is some feedback to see who would be interested in such a system

    Also to cater for everyone we need to know how your current Air Con / Climate Control

    system currently works

    As you know all manafactures do it there own way

    So We need some feedback for the following options / configerations

    Note:Tthe final product will come with full wiring and instructions to install
    However some people will need external servos and mechanisms to control any mechanical parts of there stock system

    Please Complete as appropiate

    Any Comments or things we may need to know, please put in closed brackets at the end of the relevant line

    I would suspect that USB would work but I think that firewire would be much faster and give you better response in changing the temperature and fan speed.

    Currently the prototype is RS232 controlled,

    Hence a 9 way D Type Serial Cable

    But you could also use a USB to RS232 Convertor to enabel USB access

    Furture versions will be USB Controlled

    The amount of data that is communicated is tiny so there will be no need for

    Any high speed link (firewire / USB 2) etc

    Dancehaven let me go out and say this, even though you didnt ask...

    My using of Aimee or any other frontend is not based on Climate control. Although "nice" to have an integrated package I fear how complicated it would be to hook the whole thing up... I also understand a lot of moving around would be done and that I would lose my original control (possibly forever if I needed to hack it up/solder/desolder)...

    I know you said FUTURE VERSIONS, but I sure as hell hope the release isnt being delayed because of adding this sort of thing...
