So I see intents to set data, but what if i want to get data?  From a window sensor for example.  and then take actions in Tasker based on this setting...

I have looked and looked and must be missing a post about it...

There's a workaround for this based on the instructions here http://wiki.micasaverde.com/index.php/Luup_Requests#Accessing_Vera_remotely_through_the_MiOS_servers.

Try the following:
  • To test, select Add action - select "Alert" then "Flash"
  • In the Flash configuration page, enter %HTTPD in the text field
  • If everything is working, tasker will flash the status value of your vera device when you hit Play to test. After checking, you can use the %HTTPD variable however you like

this is great -

relevant, but slightly OT question,  but just curious ... why does accessing via URL require password, but AuthomationHD automatically finds my vera, serial number, and user name?

Does the API method not require user/password? probably more a question for Garret.



edit nevermind - i realize that the info above is for reaching via external WAN.

Google still does not allow third party developers integration into Google Now. So there is no solution at this time for this sort of integration.

- Garrett

I know you may be waiting for an official API solution but there is an option for rooted user using a Xposed module.  I know the downloadable module through Xposed doesn't support the latest version of Google Now.

This link will work for the latest version (if you are interested): http://www.google.com/url?q=http%3A%2F%2Fforum.xda-developers.com%2Fattachment.php%3Fattachmentid%3D2887275%26d%3D1407373890&sa=D&sntz=1&usg=AFQjCNHSMjsWB6EmiEPQqv2PTmD4YmCGEA

I'm able to use the Tasker plugin AutoVoice to launch different AutHomation HD tasks from my Moto 360.  Which might beg to ask the question of why I / we need Google Now implementation.  Personally, would like to get status updates.  That's not part of the AutHomation Tasker plugin (as far as I can tell).  :)

At any rate, the app kicks total butt.  Keep up the great work!

I am getting an error using "Trigger" app on android, when I ask it to run authomation://s/VeraID/sceneID . I made sure that I have substituted VeraID and sceneID with the correct numbers, and have been testing it by manually running the task from Trigger. So, the intent does seem to get across to AuthomationHD app (using version 3.3.1.4), however I get notification saying "ERROR: no valid configuration. Please set .." - I cannot read the rest as it seems to have gotten truncated.  I tried to read into authomationhd logs,and found this:

11-08 08:18:14.028 D/AutHomation( 9591): GetDataService -> onStartCommand(): Intent contains no vera id!

The same URI worked perfectly on my other android phone (I have Trigger & AuthomationHD installed on both); so am not sure what I m missing.

Can you please provide more info on how you got it to work with your 360? 

I mainly want to unlock my front door. 

I'm not too familiar with tasker. I've mainly imported tasks that others have shared on forums.

So you need a few things:


There is apparently a Tasker Plugin called AutoWear, which should eliminate the need for root, Xposed, and the Google Search API.  I haven't tried it yet, nor do I know if it's come out of beta.

I can go into a little more detail if you have everything installed above.  It's been a while since I set it up, so I don't know off the top of my head.

Nexus 5, rooted on lollipop (5.0.1) so no xposed :(.

I do have tasker, autovoice and autowear. I have no idea where to start :/ any info/guidance would be really appreciated.


Edit: forgot to mention I do have authomationHD (latest beta) installed and configured properly.

Sorry. I don't use AutoWear.  For what it's worth, AutoVoice has been broken since the recent Google Search update. I need to go look to see if they updated some of the apks for it to work properly. 

I hope you get things figured out on Lollipop 🍭.

I've successfully created a Task in Tasker to unlock my front door. I created a shortcut for it on my home screen and I can lock and unlock my door by tapping it. 

This isn't directly related to AutHomationHD but I want to be able to do it from my watch (Moto 360). I have Wear Mini Launcher installed and I'm wondering if there's a way to create a shortcut/icon in wear mini launcher that I can tap to run the task. I installed AutoWear (along with a few other android wear tasker apps) and AutoVoice and messed with them but still can't figure out how to accomplish this. 

Any insight or where I should go for more assistance would be great.

Thanks guys!

Ask on forum.joaoapps.com. he's the sole developer of autoapps and is responsive on those boards.

Thinking about adding a NFC for Vera. This is my first venture into NFC so excuse my ignorance

Assume I get one device working, do I need to repeat the steps to program each other device?

If I'm reading things correctly, the NFC tag stores a set of command and the phone would also need the same apps Taska, Llama and NFC task launcher etc... to perform the task?

I know this is a dead thread, but I found it, so maybe others are also... Here are instructions I found for NFC tags:

3rd Party App Integration (Tasker, Llama)
Tasker:
    Open the Tasker app
    Go to the Tasks tab by tapping it at the top
    Press the "+" button at the bottom in the middle
    Name your new task ("Turn On Office Lamp" for example), and press the check mark
    Press the blue "+" button
    Select "Misc"
    Select "Send Intent"
    In the first text box under "Action", enter the following without quotes: "android.intent.action.VIEW"
    Further down the screen there's a text box for "Data", where you enter the string that will perform the action you want. For our example, we'll be turning a light on. [for a full list of the syntax for performing different actions, see this page]
    To turn on the light on my desk, I enter the following without quotes: "authomation://device/31234567/36/on"
    Next, scroll to the bottom of this window and press the dropdown under "Target" and select "Activity"
    Press the green check mark
    Press the green check mark again
NFC Task Launcher App Instructions:
    Launch NFC Task Launcher
    Click the plus sign at the top right corner of the app.
    Select either "New Task" or "New Switch" (if you want to toggle between actions).
    Enter a tag name (can be anything you want to help identify the tag action).
    Press the "Add actions" button.
    Select "Applications & Shortcuts"
    Select "URL" and click next.
    Enter the authomation uri syntax. For a scene it would be with out quotes "authomation://scene/1234567/20" 
    Where 1234567 is the vera unit id and 20 is the scene number to run.
    Press OK when done entering the uri in the dialog box.
    Click on the "Save & Write" tag at the top right hand corner.
    In the options section, uncheck "write tag name". (This will free up some data to be written to the tag)
    Place tag on the bottom of your phone and let the tag writer write to the tag.
    Once the tag is written, you should be good to go and the tag should function as intended.
