    Get Image through JSON

    Team,

    Because of the horrible SSL/TLS issues I cannot access my HS from the internet. Therefore I have to use connected.homeseer.com and JSON.

    This works for device values, run events, etc.

    Goal: I want to upload an image (jon00 chart) from my Homeseer HTML folder. For my application I need to provide a URL

    As direct access to my HS server is not possible,
    Q: could this be done via connected.homeseer.com & JSON?

    I have read through the unreadable SDK document but did not find anything to access images.

    What is connected.homeseer.com? Why can't you use https://myhs.homeseer.com/ to connect to your HS server?

      Connected.homeseer.com is the external address for the JSON interface.

      And in response to the original question, I don't imagine you can on the allowed functions and can't think of a way to achieve anything to do what you want. What are the limitations of your connection?

        Note that I'm talking about Homeseer access from a script.

        Limitations:
        - with HS2 I was able to access my home HS server directly via my static IP, with NAT, etc. This allowed me to access image files etc.
        - with HS3 I cannot setup a secure session to my home system anymore (think it's because of a TLS negotiation issue, causing SSLv3 to be used with is not supported by browsers) - bugzilla 3024.

        Therefore I started to use myhs and this really works for my JSON commands.
        To access other files on my HS server there's no way to do that remotely.

        Tested: login via myhs: now I can access image files under the HS3/html/images folder.

        However: this requires me to login and I cannot put my credentials in the URL.. (right?)

          DFJ3 - you can put creds in the URL, but use HTTPS.

          Any clue what to do with the image reply from JSON? How does one show it?
