Houselinc has some very useful tools that can be used if you are having issues communicating with a device. It can let us know the signal strength through one of these tools called Signaling Diagnostics. You can get to this tool by clicking on Tools > Advanced > Signaling Diagnostics.
This will pull up a box that will allow us to diagnose signal strength to a device we specify or all of them (it can take a long time to get diagnostics on all devices).
To get the Signaling information about a device you would check the box for that device and click Start (top right hand corner).
Note: In the top left hand corner of this window you can specify how many tests it will continue to run until it stops the test. For this example we have changed the number of Test to 10.
As you can see from the switch tested I have a 100% success on SD (Standard Direct) Commands and a 100% success on ED (Extended Direct) Commands.
This tool is extremely useful as a way to diagnose how good communication is to a given device you have added into the software.
