Merge timers and events
« on: November 25, 2008, 10:56:09 pm »
I would suggest to merge timers and events functionality.

First, a timer is an event - a timer based event.

Second, it would be very convenient to have an ability to limit event time ranges, i.e. fire only between 9am and 5pm...


You could leave timers as is for sake of simplicity, but in my opinion events should naturally have time properties.

I would like to see some sort of scripting tool to work with MiCasaVerde so complex scenarios can be programmed by a user.  Maybe sell a "Dev Kit" that is easy to use for power users or an installer.

An example of a fairly standard scenario would be something along the lines of:

if in sleep mode
and time = 11pm to 4am
and security camera 1 = tripped
then pxeboot bedroom PC
and  play notify.wav
and turn on perimeter lighting.
and send sec1.gif to bedroom tv monitor.

Is this going to be a capability?

Yeah, good question - what's up with LUA?

This is all possible with the Lua engine.  However, it's been on the backburner as we've been fixing so many other issues.
