where to Download SDK?


I’ve been searching the forum and wiki but I couldn’t find the SDK for vera lite. I just wonder if it free to download?


Ha, “SDK”, thanks for giving us oldtimers a chuckle.

There is nothing so enterprisey as an SDK. There is sample code, a few difficult-to-read wiki pages, and other users who have reverse-engineered the unstated bits.

What were you hoping to do? We can try to point you in the right direction. It will involve more effort on your part than you think.

oh ok then…

this is my first experience with home automation. I’ve been scripting some more advance equipment like video switch and projectors and there you normally send a TCP/IP command to the the device and it responds or executes the command to for instance turn on the projector.

to do so all I need to do is to create a socket connection to my device using it’s IP address and port and that’s it. I just wonder if it works the same way here?

Thanks for your help,

Normally you’d set up all the devices that you want to control in a Vera/Homeseer server etc. After that you’d ‘make’ certain scenes that control the devices at certain times react to certain triggers etc.

Triggering these ‘scenes’ can be done with http calls like:

Or if you use hardware like URC touchscreens it might be something like: GET\x20/data_request?id=lu_action&serviceId=urn:micasaverde- com:serviceId:HomeAutomationGateway1&action= RunScene&SceneNum=11\x20HTTP/1.1\x0D\x0AContent-Length:\x200\x0D\x0A\x0D\x0A

You can also make http request to your videoswitch or projector.

You’d be writing a (subset of an) access point then. Here is a walkthrough of the HTTP spec: http://wiki.micasaverde.com/index.php/UI_Simple

Everything djs73 said is also true.

Thank you for your answers, I think i’ve got enough to start with
