Unfortunately, virtual devices are designed for sending tcp packets rather than executing http commands. That is the main reason why you could not get it worked. Hovewer, I think I can help

Change the string to:

If it works, you will be able to create other http-get commands using this template:

I hope that solution will solve your problem.

It is not possible to send http-get requests to the gateway at the moment. We are going to add this functionality in the future of course.

We are working currently on the new, faster and more powerful scene engine that is being rewritten from a scratch. It will allow to use virtual devices in scenes and it should expand overall functionality of scenes.

Using this methode I have managed to control plugwise plugs (www.plugwise.com).

It will be great if the control is also available in scenes and on the Iphone app as device

Also Homeseer devices and events can be controlled using this methode.

this makes migration for me a bit more easy.

Okay.... this was almost a month ago.

Any update or status about when virtual devices can be used in scenes?

Any update or status about when HC2 can receive get requests ?

Dear dzaif,

Can I make a virtual device in Home Center 2 to arm/disarm the alarm?

Yes, You can, probably it should work fine with Your device

What is the" string to send " for virtual button?

It is text command that will be send to particular TCP/IP Port. String means finite sequence of symbols, like for example #device003ON#, in Your case You should check this communication messages in device manual/communication protocol, unfortunately it is different for every device.

Hi,

Is there a way to send a command on port 23 (telnet). As I do with a telnet client for example: Send the command "PO" to turn ON my amp. "PF" to stop it. ? "P" to request POWER status. Thank you for your help.

I also have one of these alarms and I simply connected a relay to arm and disarm which is a much cleaner way to control via the interface. Arming and disarming can also easily be built into scenes with this connection. I get a notification via push and email if the alarm changes state.

I am waiting for extra notification functionality so that I can be notified of the specific arm OR disarm rather than choosing only one or being notified that it has changed state

I also have a Universal Sensor connected to monitor status and breach which notifies me via push and email when the siren is activated

It could be possible to read/control Satel Integra using a Virtual Device trough ETH or RS-232 interface? This should allow for example to:

- Use the alarm PIR detectors to control lighting

- Using SATEL relays

- Use window sensors to control heating

- Arm/disarm alarm zones

- Automatic control of blinds or watering depending on armed zones

This alredy work for example in Domiq using their RS-232 module, should work also for HC2 no?

Hi Kirkoff,

I was wondering if you succeeded sending telnet commands to your (i quess Pioneer AV) device? Or did you find another way to manage the AV power?

Kind regards,

Ruud
