Yes you can, but it is officially unsupported. You'll need to image and restore the current drive in order to maintain the Windows 10 license. Customers have upgraded their drive size, as well as memory capacity, successfully.

Microsoft said they were discontinuing support for my version of Windows 10, and encouraged me to install the latest version. But then they said there was insufficient disk space. My C: drive is on the Castle HUB SSD...22 GB are used, 6 GB are available. The update wants a minimum of 8 GB.

I'm trying compressing the drive to see if that clears enough space. If it doesn't...can I upgrade the SSD to a larger drive?

I'm wondering if you've come up with a driver to operate Scenes in the PowerView Gen2 hub yet? I'm currently a CQC user, and very happy with it, but haven't been able to get a driver for PowerView, so I may have to leave CQC behind if someone else comes up with a driver.

I have the schlage z-wave bridge. Can I connect this to the castle OS system. I do not have the z-wave network setup anymore. I would like to use the castle system.

Hey Tommy, can you double check that the MultiSensor has "Motion Sensor" checked on the Edit Device screen? I think that is the reason that trigger wasn't working.

Topic: Aeotec Quad Wallmote supported?
It's possible it didn't detect all four buttons. You can force it to do that manually. Go to Z-Wave Settings, then press Manage Z-Wave Network. Then under Get Node Information, select the Wallmote and press the button to send the request. Then on the wallmote, press and hold the button for three seconds. You can confirm it worked by seeing 4 channels show under the Wallmote in the Devices view. As you press each button on or off it should be reflected in real time on that screen.

Topic: kinect service
I have a wintel pro fanless windows 10 box running a kinect in my livingroom. About every 3 or 4 days it stops responding. Windows 10 shows the the services alive and well, I have all power saving features turned off. A full reboot fixes it, a reload of the CastleOS settings fixes it. Physically disconnect and reconnect of the Kinect usb does not fix it. A stop and restart of the service in windows does not fix it. Same behavior with a different kinect. I'm at a loss????

The "tweak" is because the page is updating itself a moment before the lock state change is recorded. That will be fixed with the next release.

Regarding the lock, I'm confused why it would be working sometimes and not others. The Yale lock we have here is working reliably on a CastleOS system that's been running since the latest beta was released. Let me do some reading on that Quickset lock and see if there is any known issues. Which specific model is it?

ZWave Secondary Controller - adding new devices

I have currently setup CoS with Aeotec Gen 5 USB stick as a Secondary Controller.
I'm getting ready to add a couple more Zwave devices via the Primary Controller
and I'm anticipating that the CoS Secondary Controller
will not automatically pick up these newly added devices.
If so, what is the procedure to get these added to the Secondary Controller?

Hi Kent, functionally it won't make a difference but if you want to revert you can manually edit the configuration.xml file in C:\ProgramData\CastleOS\CastleOS Kinect Service (Backup first!) to remove the second zone. Make sure to stop the Kinect service before editing it, then restart it later.

Hi Michael, you can trying uninstalling CastleOS, deleting the CastleOS folder in C:\ProgramData (which is where the bad settings file likely is), and then reinstalling the beta.

Not in this update, but that is the top of the list once I get back to driver development after 2.0 is out.

Hey Kevin, are you using the latest beta? This issue should have been resolved for you a couple versions ago. On my Samsung S8 it's working normally.

I'll be making a separate post about the new update I'm about to post sometime this weekend.

Hi Robert, great questions! Kinect V2 is supported and is available on the download page. However we will not be developing those apps further as like you mentioned, the Kinect has been cancelled as a product. We are however planning, and currently working on, a new voice implementation, but we can't say for sure yet when it will be ready.

Thanks!
