11- forcing a manual install of a particular version of ALTUI
« Reply #16 on: January 13, 2016, 02:00:27 am »
this is a way to install manually a particular version of ALTUI is to use the "magic" url
http://<yourip>:3480/data_request?id=action&serviceId=urn:micasaverde-com:serviceId:HomeAutomationGateway1&action=CreatePlugin&PluginNum=8246&Version=xxx
where xxx is a magic number given to you by the App.mios.com store

it is explained here: http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php/topic,35739.msg264517.html#msg264517

the magic number to use can get found by looking here : http://apps.mios.com/test-plugin.php?id=8246&show=versions then clicking show files button of the version you want, then looking at the url in browser and take the number for PK_Version parameter

http://apps.mios.com/download-plugin.php?PK_Version=30020

12 - which syntax to use for opening ALTUI url
« Reply #17 on: March 16, 2016, 07:09:14 am »
On openLuup you must use :3480 but on Vera you can use either /port_3480 or :3480 on Firefox and Chrome, but not on IE. IE only works with /port_3480

Bottom line
  • On openLuup you must use :3480
  • On Vera you must use /port_3480

13 - directly opening a particular user custom page and nothing else
« Reply #18 on: June 08, 2016, 01:51:45 am »
using a url like this you can instruct ALTUI to open by default, one of your custom page , without any other things ( like menu ) around.

perfect for a waf or kid proof situation

http://<yourip>/port_3480/data_request?id=lr_ALTUI_Handler&command=home&home=pageUsePages&layout=lean&nPage=nnn

where nnn is the custom page index starting with 0

Re: 7- favorite devices appear on home page as clickable tiles with basic info
« Reply #19 on: January 13, 2018, 04:08:56 pm »
it says it all in the title...
once a device or scene has been selected as a favorite ( colored star ), it will then appear as a tile on the home page of ALTUI. You can allways return to the Home page by clicking on home or on the VERA logo.

light , dimmers and scene tiles are clickable

Ok am new and cannot find any documentation on how to add events and or modify like you have on the home page.  Is there a way to do this without going into code i.e. GUI editing.....I have been unsuccessful at finding anything that can help me.

set device or scene as "favorites" by clicking on the litte star icon in the device or scene page.  Once set as favorite it will appear on the home page as a square tile.  The order is controllable by drag and drop

Awesome.....slowly figuring out,  bought license yesterday and today I am jumping in.  Having some issues with OnLabel OffLabel with using MutiState object for my Kwik Set locks,  it doesn't what to toggle the state label, Icon and Door works great.  I am sure I will figure it out
