No you can't. It uses a binary protocol. When you don't send a valid frame, don't expect reply

there is a simulator available, it will provide some fake devices. Ping me on IRC when you're going to have a look, I'll be more than happy to assist. Just be warned that the current resolver component was rewritten in c++ and still has some issues. There is a python one, too, which is quite stable already.

yes, there are other methods besides "message". Regarding the inventory, that is only fetched at the first load. You'll get notifications for changes when you subscribe to them on ago control. When listening to the proper events you can keep it up to date without needing a "reload". With standard I mean this:
Adhering to it allows clients from multiple languages to talk to the service without much hassle. You can e.g. batch requests and have a defined set of result codes. Anyway..

it is fairly simple to do JSON-RPC via jquery, e.g. setting a dimmer level does look like this in ago control:
Code: [Select]
function setlevel(uuid, level) {
  var request = {};
  request.method = "message";
  request.params = {};
  request.params.command = "setlevel";
  request.params.uuid = uuid;
  request.params.level = level; = 1;
  request.jsonrpc = "2.0";

  $.post(url, JSON.stringify(request), myCallback, "json");

So JSON-RPC barely adds overhad/code but provides a standardised way to talk to it. And that snippet isn't much more complex than concatenating specific URI strings. Coming up with dozens of /what/ever/it/might/be RESTful URLs ain't gonna make it easier in the long run. Specific URIs to fetch e.g. a list of lights are too specialised. A simple inventory request that delivers structured data with all rooms, scenarios, devices and states provides all that data in a single request. Plus it provides the schema. So the GUI knows what kind of actions the devices support. That allows for a generic widget approach (on, off, level, …). My two cents.

The reason why I chose JSON-RPC is that you can talk to it from a lot of languages in a standardised way. Media is on the list. We already have a lot of drivers in that area. What lacks is the logic that glues the things together and provides the user with a media browser.

maybe we can join efforts with ago control and come up with an abstraction layer that hides the innards of DCE/ago control and talk the same JSON-RPC protocol. I've added JSON-RPC to ago control recently, this page describes the current protocol:

It should be straightforward to add similar methods to the DCE RPC plugin. I'd volunteer to implement this.

as possy said you should be able to detect apple devices via bonjour. That is saner than matching mac ranges..

I assume at least one of these bulbs for 220V? And a interface? Or do they talk real Wifi (in a 802.11a/b/g sense)?

I had a lot of issues with vbox and z-wave stick pass-through

Onkyo AMPs also work great. The new network receivers TX-NR 414, 515, and 616 all support full remote control.

Regarding price.. if you want home automation you can't just buy the cheapest parts from best buy. Do your homework.

you can use a raspberry pi and write a DCE wrapper for libcec. That would be the first standalone DCE device built for LMCE :-)

the OneWire DCE device uses the OWFS client API. If you can see the devices in OWFS, they will appear in LinuxMCE.

hey what do you expect :-) You're talking about limited device support because your two gadget proposals for brand new stuff are not implemented yet? Heck you were pointed to existing stuff that works well. Z-Wave is mature and there are a lot of other options like KNX and others. Home automation does not stop right after the bulb. You got a lot of valuable information in this thread. Still you tell us everything was insulting?

Stop trolling :-)

when it works in OZW, it will work in LinuxMCE and in ago control
