  • Questions about Plugin

    Hi All,

    Wondering if Rien or anybody can answer some questions about this plugin.

    I do not have the Harmony system with any hubs yet, so that is why I am ignorant on some of these. I have used Harmony/Logitech One remotes for years but wanted to get some additional automation capabilities...

    So let's say I have a remote and a hub in 3 or 4 different locations in my home, and then another hub only in a 5th location... Can I set it up so that - for example - pressing a button or starting an activity on Remote/Hub 1 can include actions (infrared signals) to be sent on Hub 5?

    I have a lot of equipment in a central location, so even though I use the remote to perhaps turn on the TV and a Receiver in the family room, the TiVO or other devices that I control are in the basement. I am curious as to whether the Harmony remotes and hubs are all aware of all of the other hubs so that I can cause infrared signals to be sent at any hub, and of course HomeSeer automations as a result of an activity or button being pressed.

    Thanks
    Regards,

    Hi Rick,

    The plugin polls for activity changes with the current minimum of 1 minute, so you can trigger other events based on activity execution. However it can take maximum 1 minute before the trigger executes based on the polling setting.

    I have a new version in beta which can set the polling in seconds, minimum 1 second. But this is experimental.
