  • Value changing but device not actually doing anything (asp pages)

    I'm trying to build a page to control HS, I'm using the test.asp (slightly modified), trying to learn. I can get my device to change to on or off, but only in HS, the actual device doesn't switch on or off (HS says off, device is still actually on).

    I'm very new to this so please educate me if I'm doing something wrong. Basically, I've got Button1 calling hs.SetDeviceValueByRef(52, 255, True)

    You have to use the CAPIControl interface to actually set the devices. Search on this message board for lots of examples (e.g. http://board.homeseer.com/showthread.php?t=161009)

      Thank you so much for pointing me in the right direction. I was totally lost, now at least I have a bit of a map!

        I am able to use an immediate script containing hs.setdevicevaluebyref 173,100,true
        To control devices. It works for me without using CAPI. I don't know if it works for all devices but it works for my x15 and Xap devices.
