Local IP Access?


(Im Brian) #1

I know @megapixel had mentioned local IP access was coming soon (as a beta). Any update on this? I just got an API set up for my TV, roku and PS3 that I can wire up to SmartThings. Wanting to build a “watch a movie” app that’ll turn down the lights, turn on the components and set everything up. Demo video of (buggy) prototype: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KbapV3sG7hI

They mentioned it today on the SmartThings Office Hours. You can watch it here: http://youtu.be/_KhaBcgSt58

Yup - watching it now. Thanks!

@leor - Looking forward to integrating this into Ubi, as well. It’d be great to just give a voice command to Ubi to “start movie” and have it send a command or series of commands to the remote: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KbapV3sG7hI

You mean something like this:

If you can program it, we can create the voice layer for it.

Local HTTP access is in the works.

Just wanted to follow up on this, as I’ve got some wifi devices that I’d like to be able to hit directly. Is link-local IP access in, or still planned?

@egid Local IP access is working reasonably well for me. I’ve had a few hiccups with Foscam trying to get polling working with it.

I use this device to hit custom local IP endpoints that control my PS3 and TV via a Rapsberry Pi server. You can lines 289 onward are the most relevant bits.

Great! I’ll poke around this week, if I can. Thank you!
