soooory, my bad. I didn't realise this thread was that old I thought it was a new thread relating to CEM120 connection problems. Please ignore my message above. Sorry for confusion

Here's a screenshot from my setup. CEM120, plugged into the mount base USB.
One thing to check is the baud rate? Set to 115200
If you need more screenshots let me know. If you are still stuck.... maybe some one of us can teamviewer into your setup?

I connect to my CEM120 via usb directly into the mount (not handset). Works perfectly.
Maybe enable debug logging and have a look at the output, or paste the log here.

AH yes of course, no need to write a driver if you can get one of the existing working. I was not aware of the 'Weather Safety Proxy' driver. It actually looks really good. I think you can configure it with a script to interact with your custom device. Thats the way to go. Less code the better. Actually now it gives me the idea to use it instead of my own custom driver.

If you have your own device that can monitor clouds and rain then you can write an indi weather driver for it.
I did this for my own home-made cloud and rain monitor device -> github.com/dokeeffe/cloud-rain-monitor

If you have an off the shelf weather device then there may already be an INDI 3rd party driver available.

And as Jasem says, the EKOS observatory tab will talk to this driver and do stuff for you (like closing the roof etc)
Also the EKOS scheduler monitors the weather through your driver during a schedule and can perform a shutdown procedure.

Wolfgang,
Do you mean the file I posted for 2019-09-10? Yes I have the full log. Its quite verbose so I've gzipped it and uploaded it to drive here > drive.google.com/open?id=1RVUOEJsNaTg2DFGfxOMBuaLJkf1vremk
It looks like guiding was indeed working before the flip.
Its very strange, I've had 2 clear night since, using the exact same scheduler file (observing SS Cyg for an AAVSO campaign) and the guiding did start perfectly after the flip.
