Hey harry_s24 Where does the code go in the Web X10der for this new addition? I'd love to try it.
I've got the Web X10der hosted and working great on my machine for a bit now and I gotta say it's pretty perfect. I also use active home pro, so I setup a bunch of macros in that to get the all lights on\off working only for a specific house code. I have some pretty cool mood light setups (IE watch a movie, music and so on). The commander server and software work great, and my dyndns and apache server are also really fun. My friends are always really amazed when I give them my dyndns url and they can turn lights on and off using their own phones when they come over. It's also a lot of fun to freak people out when I go to the store if they aren't the ones whom already know I've got the hookup.
I recently made the switch and became an android guy after getting an IPad, figured I didn't need both that and the IPhone and i've experimented with nfc stickers which are also super cool in conjunction with x10.
I do have one issue, but not really so much of a problem more of an annoyance. When I send a command using the X10 Web X10der I get the following error.
[Exception... "Access to restricted URI denied" code: "1012" nsresult: "0x805303f4 (NS_ERROR_DOM_BAD_URI)" location: "http://192.168.1.101/ Line: 114"]
the command still gets sent and goes through, the light\lights go on and off fine. It's just kinda annoying and looks ugly. This seems to happen on PC in ie, firefox and not in chrome. I'm not so great with code, so if anyone has any thoughts let me know. Seems line 114 is
and I am not sure what the problem is.
The possibilities with X10 seem so endless, I've thought about the voice automation stuff for a bit now, and I also think I might want to tackle automating my blinds into the x10. Does anyone know how it works as far as a media center companion? I see options for it in the active home pro software, but I can't imagine it being that good as the AHP is such a clunky and ugly tool. Right now I have a computer connected to hdmi in my living room, it would be cool if I could send a mood command that dimmed the lights whatever % and also turned on music in one go.
Fixed my issue, I just needed to add my dyndns url into the trusted sites in IE on whichever machine I am using to control the lights. I had the IP of my x10 server already in trusted sites, but I had forgotten to switch it over when I went the route of making it accessible remotely.
