NFC - Near field Communication
« on: October 10, 2017, 07:48:11 am »
Hi There

Is it possible to integrate Vera with NFC tags ie write NFC tags so that you can tap on an NFC tag to set off a zwave device?

Thanks

What type of tag are you referring to? One that requires you tap it with your phone?

Yep, I was going to suggest Tasker as well. Seems to me to be the best option for allowing NFC to trigger a command. Of course, this assumes you have an Android phone. I don't think Tasker is available for iPhone.

Since many NFC's can be programmed to trigger a http call, you could probably just call into the Device or Scene that you want to trigger that way.

For example to run a scene:
http://ip_address:3480/data_request?id=action&serviceId=urn:micasaverde-com:serviceId:HomeAutomationGateway1&action=RunScene&SceneNum=<SceneNum>

update IP_address and <SceneNum> appropriately

Or to toggle a switch:
http://ip_address:3480/data_request?id=action&output_format=xml&DeviceNum=<num>&serviceId=urn:micasaverde-com:serviceId:HaDevice1&action=ToggleState

update ip_address and the <num> appropriately
