Virtual device to virtual device

Question

Is it possible to use API with HCL? If yes, how to access eg a button using a local http request?

Eg. If like to push button 1 from a local request?

In the URL I can see the id and I also found the button id.

I tried,

http:///api/callAction?deviceID=15&name=pressButton&arg1=2

Nothing happens,

That would be great , i have a veralite and i thought of this to control vera scenes from HCL via http . HCL doesn't support all the products i have and this will solve almost all of my current problems .

As Karikroff said, it's working after adding the userID and password , i got it to work from veralite to HCL too

I've seen this mentioned in a couple of places now but have yet to see someone saying it works with HCL that have actually tried it. I've tried a number of suggestions adding Authorisation Basic etc. but nothing works so far

Thanks for offering. As a proof of concept I'd like to use a virtual device from HCL to call the http api on the same device (could be used to update a slider value)

My code so far in the virtual device:

username/password is modified from the real one.

the command listed here works from a browser.

Update:

Got it working. HCL apparantly requires the Host header to be filled.

Just add "Host: 0x0D0x0A"

So in my case the call is:

I think we should start posting examples in the forums , like ( what did you do with your HC2 or HCL today . i was struggling with XBMC plugin to get it working on HCL , then struggling to make it run scenes at night only , But Shad and stevenvd helped me to get it working
