Call Vera from UNIX cron to do things

This is likely relatively simple to accomplish, but I am having some trouble finding the documentation to support what I’m needing to do.

I have been messing with some ZWave equipment and a Vera 2 that I picked up as a replacement for some X10 gear. What I have with X10 is a set of shell scripts and cron jobs that handle what I need. Where I have an X10 command that says “C7 ON” I want to be able to replace that with a web service call to my Vera to say, roughly, “uuid:4d494342-5342-5645-0014-000000003600 ON”. I really have no interest in programming scenes or any of that at this time. I just want to turn unit X on, unit Y off etc.

What are the critical technologies I have to get ahold of to make something like this work?

How can I get a simple list of the components my Vera knows about?
Is there simple logic to control units, maybe via a shell script?
I believe I can package what I want as a CGI program to run under lighttpd, is that so?
Is there something special I have to do to make a Vera2 remember the scripts i set up, so that they’re still there after power cycle?

Thanks!

hello Ap15e…

some way to change the time what Vera will do the heal of the network, or even know what time my vera is setted up to do this actually ?

thanks in advance…

Ap15e has left the forums quite a while ago to pursue other endeavours.

BOFH,
and you can help me to clarify this ?

I am with my Vera running the healing process at 8pm and always I have friends in home and I can not do a demonstration of our system with the right performance…

thanks…

Unfortunately not. This heal time seems to be set somehow hardcoded somewher. Mine runs at 2AM but I’m in US EST timezone. I suggest you check with the support people to see if your time can be changed.

Update: I poked around in my Vera 3 but the only crontab I can find is for root and is for rotating the logs. No cron job for a heal as far as I can tell.

Thanks BOFH !!
