Integration of media server

6 years 8 months ago #138 by cdj
The idea is to integrate in EasyIOT raspy server an existing Media Server, remote control. In this way if you think that is a good idea to make "macro actions" you can play for example a video, turn off lights, close tents, etc.etc.
A good idea can be XBMC web inteface or better VLC Remote web interface.....

What do you think about ?

What interface do you have in mind? IR or web based or something else?
If web then you need to call some web methods. You can do this in automation functions. Program is written in C# and you can write whatever you want and need in C#.
If interface is IR then i can add some additional data types to send/receive IR commands. You need to add also IR receiver/sender. That way you can also control devices which are not directly connected to EasyIoT server. For example that way you can control existing air condition without need to change/modify air condition device.

Uhm i've not clear ideas :-) ir will be really fantastic but I suppose that will be complicated. I've a programmable ir remote control on my smartphone, that can also command some relay... perhaps can integrate easyiot in this software??? Web interface (es. VLC) is immediate to integrate.

I will also develop android app. Maybe this is solution to control by smartphone.

I can believe that it will be a great app if you will include ir codes and custom layout.... I'm ready to help you if you want...

Will the app be able to give control buttons (like lights, blinds, doors etc)?

Would be great if it could turn EIoT into a basic controller along with the automation stuff.

FWIW the Xbian XBMC install allows other installations, maybe it could work alongside EIoT?
