    Will this Plug-In be ported to HS4 and support BI 5?

    Will this Plug-In be ported to HS4 and support BI 5? I have not seen any recent posts on this thread from the Plugin Author (Though I have seen posts from him on other parts of the forum).

    I cannot speak for the developer but I have been running BI5 and HS4Beta (now on 4.0.6.0) with this plugin without any issues since the HS4Beta began.

      Timothy - Thanks, that's good info for lots of us who had the same question. Much appreciated!!

        I can only guess based on the PI authors lack of support for a long time that isn't.

          And to think I was thinking of buying it.

            You don’t really need as you can do direct JSON commands and status from BI to HS and can control many BI functions and trigger camera etc from HS to BI. No need for a plug-in.

            I used the plugin for a short time and realized I could do everything it did without it.

              True. Just makes it easier to work with.
              I do wish that spud face recognition program could work directly with BI. (Or if Ken manages to set it up for BI by itself.)

                How exactly do you send a trigger to BI from Homeseer using JSON commands?

                As an example, this is a command that is sent to BI from an AI tool I am testing out. http://[ipaddressofBI:portofBI]/admi...Driveway&user=[username]&pw=[password]

                Is it "run a script or script command" n the event engine? If so, what is the exact syntax that goes into the script box? or is there a different way to do this from homeseer?

                  &hs.urlaction("http://192.168.2.184:81/admin?camera=Drvway&motion=0&user=steve&pw=xxxxxxxx", "GET", "", "")


                  This is what i send from HS when my sprinklers run in one zone as they just constantly setup motion alerts in BI.

                  I have a similar one to turn on motion capture when sprinklers are not running.

                    Thank you. This works.

                    For my edification, what does the end of the command do? ["GET", "", ""]

                      Not sure but that is syntax required by HS. Just found examples of HS calls to a URL and they had that.

                        Could you please explain how to do this, for those of us who are unfamiliar with JSON? I'd be happy to use the plug-in but it seems there's a decent chance it's heading for oblivion...
                        Under these circumstances I probably ought to learn how to get these pieces of software talking directly.
                        My initial goals would be to tell HS about motion sensed by Blue Iris, and to be able to control some simple BI functions from HS, like change triggering for example.
                        Thx
