Guidance for writing native apps
« on: February 09, 2011, 10:30:38 pm »
Hi All,

I am new to Vera and the whole home automation hobby.  I just received my Vera2 and I am starting to tinker around with it.  My day job involves architecting and writing mobile apps/websites and I was wondering if fellow members can point me to any documentation that talks about how the native apps interface with the Vera2 device over local network and the interface for accessing it via the findvera or cp.mios.com website.  I want to start a personal project for writing the iPad/Android/Android Tablets apps for accessing the Vera and would like any help getting started.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the links.  This is exactly what I was looking for.  I will keep the group informed on my progress.

Some things to look at:

There is a lot of info on the wiki and as well as stuff posted in this forum that may be of use. Hopefully that will get you started.

I am making progress on this.  Couple of remodeling projects at home have slowed down this work. 

I would appreciate if I can get feedback from the community as to what features they would like to see in a native app that seem to be missing from what is out there.  I will try to incorporate these as I work through the wireframes and prototyping.

What platform are you proposing?

Personally, I would like to see someone come up with solution like HSTouch from HomeSeer.

I am targeting the iPad and the Android tablets.  I am new to Vera and this forum and saw a number of posts requesting an iPad optimized app.

I would more then gladly pay for it too.  Anything so that I wouldn't have to script Lua through Vera.
