version

Provides firmware version information

clockProvides clock information used in advance troubleshooting

reset

Performs a soft reset of the detector
initializeFactory reset's all detector settings
componentsLists internal component states
gpsToggles the GPS locator on and off. While on the locator will try and get a GPS fix on the detector. The process could take a while to complete. The detector will try to get as accurate a fix as possible

WARNING - GPS locating consume a lot of power, so do not perform this with a detector who has a low battery. You should wait until the battery level is high to perform GPS location
gps fixProvides the last fix the detector was able to make on its position
gps fix resetClears the last fix the detector was able to make on its position
gps settingsLists current settings for the GPS module

gps wake $seconds

Sets the maximum time that the detector should try and get a precise GPS fix on itself. Once this time has been reached, the GPS module will automatically turn off

$seconds - the maximum time, in seconds, that the GPS module should run before automatically turning off

radio statusDisplays the current status of the radio module
radio wakeForces the radio to wake up, turning on the receiver
radio sleep
Forces the radio to go to sleep, turning off the receiver
radio addr
Provides the current address configured on the radio
led
Toggles the LEDs to be on/off. The LEDs will automatically turn off after the configured wake time
led wake $seconds
Sets the maximum time the LEDs will be on

$seconds - the maximum time, in seconds, that the LEDs are on before automatically turning off

led settings
Lists current settings for the LED module
pwrDisplays the state of the power system
pwr settings
Lists current settings for the power module
pwr components
Lists current state of each power component
pwr verbose
Turns on verbose mode which allows you to see power system state changes in chat for diagnostics

NOTE - this mode does not survive reboots
pwr state $state
Force power management into a specific state

$state - the state to put the management system into. available states are: low-rest, low-test, high-settle, charging, priming-on, priming-off

pwr batt low $mvolts
Sets the battery low millivolt level. This affects how the power management system charges the battery

$mvolts - the millivolt level that the battery would be considered low power

pwr batt high $mvolts
Sets the battery high millivolt level. This affects how the power management system charges the battery

$mvolts - the millivolt level that the battery would be considered high power, or fully charged

WARNING - do not set this value without consulting an expert. You could cause the battery to become unstable and cause catastrophic failure to the detector which may also cause harm to anything near the detector.

pwr solar onOverrides power management and turns the solar input on

NOTE - does not survive reboots
pwr solar off
Overrides power management and turns the solar input off

NOTE - does not survive reboots
pwr solar auto
Turns power management of this component back on
pwr solar settle $seconds

Sets the minimum number of seconds to wait while the solar input is too high for safely charging the system

$seconds - number of seconds to wait, at a minimum, before checking to see if solar charging is safe to use again

pwr solar rest $seconds
Sets the rest time before the system checks solar input to see if it is able to charge properly

$seconds - the number of seconds to wait before checking the solar input usefulness

pwr solar test $seconds
Sets the length of time that the system tests to see if the solar input is good enough to charge the system

$seconds - the number of seconds to test the solar input
pwr scaps on
Overrides power management and turns the super capacitors on

NOTE - does not survive reboots
pwr scaps off
Overrides power management and turns the super capacitors off

NOTE - does not survive reboots
pwr scaps auto
Turns power management of this component back on
pwr scaps primeon $seconds
Sets the maximum number of seconds used to prime the super capacitors

$seconds - the maximum number to prime

pwr scaps primeoff $seconds

Sets the wait time before the system start priming the super capacitors again

$seconds - the number of seconds to wait before priming the super capacitors again
pwr tt $seconds
Sets the minimum transition time required between state changes

$seconds - the number of seconds each  state much elapse before it can change to another state

NOTE - does not apply to all states

pwr pump on
Overrides power management and turns the charge pump on

NOTE - does not survive reboots
pwr pump off
Overrides power management and turns the charge pump off

NOTE - does not survive reboots

pwr pump auto

Turns power management of this component back on

det

Displays the current magnitude values of the magnetometers
det cal
Force the magnetometers to calibrate to their environment (degauss or zeroing out the magnetic field)

det settings

Lists current settings for the detection system
det enable
Enables the detection system
det disable
Disables the detection system
det $mag
Displays information about a specific magnetometer

$mag - the magnetometer to enable. Can be: m1 or m2
det $mag settings
Displays settings configured for a specific magnetometer

$mag - the magnetometer to enable. Can be: m1 or m2
det event $event

Toggles processing of specific events (turns them on/off)

$event - the event to toggle. can be: speed, length, occupancy, detection, wrongway, none (turn all off), all (turn all on)

det delay $mseconds
Configures the minimum time required between detections

$mseconds - the number of milliseconds that must elapse before the next detection can trigger

det dwell $mseconds
Configures the minimum dwell time required for the detector to trigger an occupancy event

$mseconds - the number of milliseconds that must elapse before it is allowed to trigger
det mode $mode
Sets the detection algorithm used

$mode - the algorithm to use. can be: abs (absolute change) or rel (relative change)
