  1. If you want energy you can get the TP-Link HS110 or the TP-Link HS300
  2. The HS103 is also the HS105 driver. You'll see it in composer as the HS103 / HS105 driver. The only differences in the product is the amps they are rated to.
  3. I'm still a Kodi guy myself. have one in the living room and one in my theater.
  4. included with the TP-Link driver zip. Will be adding it to the other driver zips when i update the documentation to reflect.
  5. UPDATE Added support for the following products HS103 Outlet - 2 Pack MSRP $34.99 HS105 Outlet - Single Pack MSRP $22.99 2 Pack MSRP $39.99 Both of these outlets are extremely affordable with the differences being the HS103 comes in 12amp where the HS105s come in 15amp ratings. Also created a replacement outlet light driver which is compatible with all drivers that can bind to the old Control4 outlet light driver which includes the Control4 Outlet Switch v1, Orvibo Wiwo, Belkin Wemo, TP-Link Smart Suite and more.

  7. The biggest OS 3.0 change for driverworks is the ability to implement favorites for MSP based drivers. We have done this to our Sky driver thus far. The other big change is migration to LuaJIT.
  8. Travis Industries sent us a development kit so its totally different from a real fireplace. It was all setup for us so can't comment on how to physically set it up. You are best off reaching out to them for assistance. I do know one thing. They got the RS232 gender incorrect when they first sent it to us but fixed it in a new board revision that they sent later.
  9. Driver wasn't really designed to be used that way so don't know if its possible. Since you are interacting with multiple proxies you'll be sending multiple RGB commands which won't really produce what you're setting out to achieve.
  10. UPDATE Sky Channels driver updated to support OS3.0 favoriting with revamped user experience.
  11. Read out tweets via text to speech.
  12. Once the IFTTT driver is installed you can do this yourself. Our website has a wealth of information including examples on integration between IFTTT and numerous products and services.
  13. Our IFTTT driver works for alot of stuff but one of the use cases (at least in my house) is ring doorbell press and motion https://www.chowmainsoft.com/ifttt Blackwire also have a ring doorbell driver as well which they sell.
  14. At my old house i used ring with battery and our IFTTT driver. Worked well. Only had to charge it once every 4-6 months. What was nice was that it emailed me when the battery was low and needed charging. Charged up in about 4 hours from memory. At my new place i still use the same ring doorbell buts its permanently powered using the old doorbells cabling.
