Hi folks. I spent some time today playing with the flexibility of HousePanel and ended up making a very cool skin to show lights on a floor plan of my house. I had to make a few minor tweaks to the code to support this which I will post in a few moments. This post is to show off the floor plan demo to get people interested in trying out HousePanel. To read more, go to http://www.housepanel.net or browse the main HousePanel thread in thi forum.
Hope you all enjoy. Here is a screen shot of the Floor Plan showing lights and switches in a geometry accurate rendering of my house.
I left out some of the minor switches but most lights are there. To create this I made a new skin wiht the layout set as the background color. I then make a login for just this skin and removed all pages but the one floor plan page. Then I just added the switches and moved them around in the edit mode.
