Link to driver?   Is this just a webview to manually use their web interface or can I programmatically control the Vestaboard from Composer programming (hopefully with some variable manipulation and not just static text).

When I saw the Vestaboard for first time, my first question was about C4 integration-- so hopefully this is now supported.  Awesome product, but pricey for sure.  I love the retro-future hybrid vibe of the thing.

  The driver url is here: https://drivercentral.io/platforms/control4-drivers/utility/vestaboard/


We did enable composer programming for you and allow for variable injection ;)

Full docs explain everything but it's basically:

For Composer Variables... use this syntax: {variable_name}.  Example, if you made a composer variable (weather report) then to inject it, you'd type {weather report}.

For other drivers variables, use: {deviceId:variable_name} Example, if the Yale doorlock has a deviceId of 992 (yale last user is listed under var name: LAST_UNLOCKED_BY) and you're wanting the vesta to say 'Hello Username' then you'd  use "Hello {992:LAST_UNLOCKED_BY}" 


If you need any additional programming hooks or commands, let us know and we'd be happy to look at implementing.
