Default new PID suggestion: disable

I would like to propose a PID for disabling mechanisms. It would have SET and GET capabilities: set would allow you to disable a specific mechanism; get would return a list of mechanisms which are already disabled.

Diane,

Can you elaborate a bit more on how you would see this being used and applications where you would use it? I want to make sure we understand it better.

We use it for teching automated lights, disabling specific motors (pan, tilt, etc) or determining which are in an error condition, but now that I think about it the command may not have a broad enough application to be useful to others.

Diane, can your propose a packet format?

Sometime like this?

GET FEATURE_DISABLE
-Feature number (8-bit)

GET FEATURE_DISABLE Response
-Feature number (8-bit)
-Total number of features
-0=Feature not Disabled, 1=Feature Disabled
-32 Character Feature Description string

SET FEATURE_DISABLE
-Feature number (8-bit)
-0=Feature not Disabled, 1=Feature Disabled

SET FEATURE_DISABLE Response
(No data)

Hi Eric, that packet format looks great. It covers all of the functionality I had in mind.

Additional thoughts:
Feature number 0xFF means "All features"

SET for "All Features" can disable/enable all at once
GET for "All Features" is not defined and shall return "Unsupported Command Class"

Features must be numbered sequentially starting at 1.

Feature 0 shall return "Out of Range"
