I am currently using another app to communicate with arduino mega, but the administrators have decided to close the servers at the end of this year. So I was forced to migrate to another communication program and that’s how I found the home remote designer. I’ve been using the program for a month and I like it. I managed to add a tcpplugin (default tcp plugin from home remote site) and create a TCP connection with arduino. I added some switches to send commands.
Unfortunately I got stuck with reading the states of the switches that should come from the arduino. I added in onChangeRequest a tcp.send () function that sends a request to arduino for the state of the switches. Arduino is receiving this request and send back the current state. This state is displayed in home designer log, but the problem is that I don’t know how to implement it in the switch designer.
Another problem is related to the slider. I managed to control the light but I got stuck again reading the light state when you start the application (the slider should start from the current light value) When I send manually the command -get brightness- to arduino, I get back the light value but I don’t know how to implement it in slider(how to request the light value, read the value and update the slider to current value position).
Please help me with some ideas or examples.
