    RyanE's Web Events Driver and SSL/HTTPS

    Yes, it requires HomeKit (Homebridge). Perhaps you’d be better off using the ready-made solution?

    Prometheus Metric Logger driver

    Looks like David Massot is working on something! (Not FOSS though.)

    Control4 and MQTT?

    Hi David, that’s neat. I will give it a try. I have flashed a Neo Coolcam Wi-Fi wall plug (currently controlling it simply via HTTP) and I’m planning to flash my Mi LED Desk Lamp, both with Espurna. Would be nice to have lightV2 dimmer sliders for the LED lamp (one for brightness, one for color temperature). By the way, I think that the c4z files could be considered ‘releases’ (GitHub has a feature for that), they probably don’t belong to the git repo itself. EDIT: Nevermind, I’ve just noticed you publish only the encrypted Lua portion of the drivers anyway, not the actual source code (not sure if that’s what’s GitHub intended for).

    Homebridge Driver for HomeKit Support?

    Aha! I replied to the e-mail from which I got the original licence key for our showroom, that's why. Thanks, I'll send it to the proper address.

    Homebridge Driver for HomeKit Support?

    Hi Josh, I sent you a couple of e-mails recently to <sup.varietassoftware.com@gmail.com>, we moved our showroom to a new controller. Did they get through?

    Prometheus Metric Logger driver

    Not that I know of, no. I don't know about any attempts, either. Integrating through the WebHooks driver + NodeRED seems a bit awkward. I mostly wanted to integrate MQTT-enabled devices *to* Control4. For that, it would be nice to have some drivers hooked up to the UIs (proxies): 'light', 'relay', 'contact sensor', 'temperature sensor' and similar. I got interested in it through HASS (which I was thinking of using as a universal gateway for everything Control4 does not support natively), Espurna and other projects. Seems like support for the protocol is pretty ubiquitous. Even some PLCs for which we now use Modbus, a terrible 70s-era industrial protocol, support it.

    Homebridge Driver for HomeKit Support?

    Good to know you are alive and kicking, Joshua. Let's grab a beer if you come to Prague sometime.

    Prometheus Metric Logger driver

    I suggested the idea to Control4, for them to provide (at least) some MQTT client & server library in DriverWorks SDK directly. I think it would open up a lot of new possibilities (without every driver developer having to reinvent the MQTT wheel).

    Wrt serial pinout - if you are connecting it to one of the EA controllers' TRS minijack serial ports, you can just use a regular stereo audio cable. The EA minijack ports can switch Rx/Tx. The option is in System Design, on the EA controller driver.

    This works too (for all webOS 3.x TVs) https://annex4.link/drivers/lg-webos-smarttv You'll get mini app drivers (Netflix etc.) and some interesting features.

    Simple Control

    You mean like this one sums up the whole 'smart home' idea?

    Simple Control

    Control4 has integration with Fibaro (3rd-party), Vera, Philips Hue, Apple TV IP control, Kodi (3rd-party), Kaleidescape (3rd-party), LG TV (3rd-party + Control4), Oppo Blu-ray players…

    Nice work, Harper. Do you know if the Grafana dashboard works on T3 touch screens (via the Web View driver)? We used EmonCMS in the past but it didn't work on T3s. (Still was nice to have on iPads etc.) By the way, any progress on the MQTT driver / integration?

    C4 hires Amazon Alexa/Smart Home Hero

    Well, Control4 customers do have some limited means of making certain changes (Composer HE, When>>Then). Far from full access, but better than some competitors, I guess?

    Control4 Intercom Anywhere App

    It is, although they have separate drivers and the integration process is a bit different. With the plain 2N version, dealer needs to configure everything from scratch / manually. The driver for the Control4 version automates and thus speeds up the process quite a bit. (Not everything is auto-configured though.) Also Control4's version multicasts the video preview so it supports basically an unlimited number of touch screens showing the video preview at the same time. The 2N version's driver only supports unicast camera stream so the number of touch screens displaying the video preview at the same time is limited (To 15, I think? Could be a lower number though, depending on whether you are using H.264 or MJPEG.). And if you are comparing their prices, don't forget that Control4's version essentially comes with the Enhanced Video (now with ONVIF licence too) and Enhanced Integration licences applied from the factory. With the 2N version you would need to buy these licences extra for the integration to work.
