Re: Nest announces smart home API

Unfortunately Nest doesn't provide information on whether the system is currently running. With some programming I could probably guess at this based on the mode and the target temps and the ambient temp. But it would just be a guess and not 100% accurate. Good News! I got an email from Nest with t...

Re: Installation Problem/Error

Welcome to OSA!

Which version of OSA are you trying to install?

Make sure .NET 4.0 or higher is installed. Try running Windows Update and make sure everything is up to date.

Re: Important time sensitive question, please provide input.

I kind of like the idea of keeping the demo objects separate from the install. Since we have Object/SQL Export/Input we could separate all the demo objects into their own SQL script. We could even create a SYSTEM method called "Load Demo Objects" New users could be told to go to the SYSTEM object an...

Re: Jabber plugin disconnects

@Albert07 I've seen this before but it does not happen too often. It can be a problem if you have a lot of plugins running. If you aren't using a plugin don't enable it.

Did you see the note in red? "Note: Plugins for version 0.40 and higher of OSA do not need to use the below special procedure."

Re: Ubiquiti mFi

The In-wall outlets and switches are new but the mPort and mPower have been out for a while. The hardware is nice. Each device runs Linux and they allow users to login and tinker. But I'm not a fan of the PC "controller" software. Their controller software uses Java and Flash two of my least favorit...

Re: Ubiquiti mFi

I have an mPower but have not gotten around to writing a plugin for it.

There is an API here http://community.ubnt.com/t5/mFi/mPower ... 9#U1076449

They also have a web socket API which should be even better but it is not documented.

Re: Heating Control

Looks like Vera works differently than OSA. Since the receiver is only one node on the Zwave network it should be only one OSA object not three like the Vera. But the OSA object should have methods for turning on/off both outputs. The receiver many not be properly recognized by OpenZwave. What does ...
