Can you create a scene that unlocks that device and then use the NFC trigger then?
Thanks for the http Get Ryan.
For those who are interested, using the HTTP Get I can also control eventghost which allows control of a lot of other things as well, like the serial/RS232 control of my projector.
Thanks, really looking forward to this.
There was an added suggestion in the forums to add the ability to send a WOL packet.
Does the ‘run as service’ option help out here? It’s found in tools/options/misc. You can turn it on then close the GUI and everything will continue to run.
The starting up and running as a service isn't the issue,it will stay on, the problem is a quick glance for trouble shooting you have no idea if it is running or not.
It would be nice to have a notification that it is still running though.
As the Pi’s get more powerful, and the Windows OS embedded features get fuller, we’ll look into this again.
@marc I agree but I have the feeling that those that aren't interested in running a pc probably end up with a Vera. No offence to InControl but it does a lot more than InControl currently can. My concern is if it ends up splitting (which is an option) or one or the other gets hobbled, ie pc version underpowered or RPi version slow due to resources. I'm not sure but if people are after a low powered version I'm not sure if this will run on a atom based windows 8.1 tablet (not win RT). Low power and you get a screen as well.
Just a few questions for those who are interested.
1) How many writes does InControl do? Being SD card based you will wear them out.
2) How do you see this product? Like a Vera or Home Seer competitor?
I see it like Home seer. I'm happy running on a PC (mine does other things, not just HA) I'd like to see it more powerful to use the PC's ability. If you want lower power, windows will run on a atom PC or even a laptop.
We have finished a basic learning/programming solution for the Remotec z-wave AV device. If anyone has this, please contact me for a beta if you’d like to give it a go.
Not sure if you plan to support either i-Tach or the SQBlaster.
The i-Tach stuff also has contact closure and serial control stuff as well.joshpond supported this idea ·
Would be nice but I can live without it so I've removed votes for now. I'd like the XBMC and IR ones done first.
