Apple Watch
« on: May 03, 2015, 11:54:28 pm »
Loyal Homeware User for over a year now. Great app! Do you plan to support the Apple watch? I just got one and would love to use it to run a scene when I get home or leave.

Thanks!

I'm looking into supporting the Watch!  It's early days though, and currently I am working on other things in preparation for a new release.
HomeWave is available in the App Store!  Turn your iPhone/iPad into an easy-to-use remote control for Vera.

I have just been able with much tinkering, to in a sense....for $2.99 (and the cost of my time...) create an app using the Lu URL passes and an App called workflow which has a watch companion app. With it's logic I can now...click a button it will ask me..

Lights On/Off?

Which Lights (provides a list).

Then executes the URL.

It was a bit of a bear to set up but it feels almost like a native app for this type of thing at this point. Here is the link to the workflow. I'm honestly not sure how to copy this for some one else.

Great idea @andlyleer !

I took a look at Workflow and created a workflow to run a vera scene from the Apple Watch... works great.

For anyone interested: After you install the Workflow app on your iPhone, click on this link on your iPhone to load the workflow into your Workflow app https://workflow.is/workflows/fa57e47284c94e418b3b640fe2ecf67e  Then in the Text object change vera_ip to your vera's IP and scene_number to the number of your scene.

This is Awesome!!  I am by no means an IT expert, but I assume this only works while on the local network.  It is possible to use the watch away from home?

If you are on UI5 you could probably use the remote url format in the Text object, but I don't know if that exposes your Vera password to the Workflow app developer so I would not advise doing it.

Once HomeWave adds watch support I expect that would both work remotely and be secure.

Any updates on this? I'm hoping to run my House open scene from my watch when I pull up to the house. The workarounds look nice, but I would prefer direct support.

Thanks in advance!

Add me to the list. I just got an iWatch for Fathers Day and my Home Automation and Siri voice control are about the only things I can really see using on this watch for beyond the time. I'm sure I will find other uses for it my turning my lights and AC on and off with it would be ideal. Especially via voice.

Yes please.
i've got mine, and would love to get homewave sorted on it.  Any testing needed, i'll break it.

Just wanted to check in and see if you happen to get chance to look into this. Even a simple watch app that lets me run my scenes would be great! I'm basically using this when I am pulling up to my house to run My "Open House Scene" which opens my garage and turns off the alarm.

Works like a charm (also external)

Not much, I'm bogged down by some other stuff.  Like adding lock PIN management (which is more complex than it seems, and some bug fixes).  Watch support is the next big addition on the list though.

@intveltr have you been able to make any headway on direct camera urls (at least to blue iris)? Thanks.
