This is the download page for a project that i am calling "iSeer". It is a web based iphone "app" that allows you to control all of you homeseer devices and events from you iphone or ipod touch.
It uses classic ASP and the jqtouch platform to build nicely styled pages with iphone-like animations.
UPDATED!! I have updated this to use the latest version of jqTouch. This is important because it eliminates the "ghost click" issue. iSeer now runs smoother than ever.
Click Here to download the zip file with all the files you will need.
In the zip package you will find one folder (jqTouch_New) and several files. Copy both folders and all the files into the "html" folder under your homeseer installation. This is typically found at C:\Program Files\HomeSeer HS2\html\
Once the files have been installed you should be able to access iSeer launching safari on your iphone or ipod touch and going to http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/iphone_controls.asp where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the ip address of your homeseer server.
Note that if your idevice is not in your home network, you may be prompted to log in. This will be the same login as the one you use when accessing homeseer from outside your network.
Now add a bookmark to this page to your home screen. You will notice that a custom icon is used (a blue icon with a gear on it).
Now when you launch iSeer from the icon on the homescreen it will launch in fullscreen mode and appear more like a native app.
Navigation: There are a few things to understand aboout the navigation.
The home page displays a list of all of the Event Groups from homeseer. When You tap on an even group, it will take you to a page displaying all of the events in that event group. The concept here is that you should have an event group for each room. That way if you have several devices (a few lamps for example) in each room, you can easily turn them all on by just tapping the room you want and then tapping an event in that rooms event group.
If you would rather control your devices individually, you can click the Devices button on the home page. This will display a list of all of yoru devices and their current status (On, Off of Dimmed). If you tap any of the devices you will be presented with buttons to turn it on, off or dim it to 40% or 80%.
On any screen you can click the Back button in the upper left corner to return to the previous page.
A few notes:
The homescreen will list your homeseer event groups. tap an event group to display all of the events in that group. This app will only display events that have been assigned to an event group. This is nice because that gives you a way to hide events from iseer. For instance, I do not include any of my time triggered events in iseer.
To specify the label for the buttons on the events page, you will need to add an underscore followed by your label to the end of your event name in the main homeseer interface. So for instance if you have an event which dims the lights to 40% and the event name is "Lighting40" in homeseer, then change the event name to be "Lighting40_40%" and the button label in iSeer will be "40%"
on the homescreen there is a button in the upper right corner which allows you to access individual devices.
The devices page is hardcoded to exclude the "ACRF2 Device Monitor" Device. I did this for my own purposes but if enough people want it added back in, I can certainly do so.
Right now, each device page is hard coded to display 4 buttons (On, Off, 40% Dim and 80% Dim). This is hard coded and if enough people tell me it doesn't suit their needs I can certainly modify it.
