    Thanks for the note.

    Got the app to see the WiFi Controller. Forgot to order the correct adapters for the LED strip so I can't test it as of now.

    Can the WiFi Controller web server be set to a static IP? Looking at my phone it appears to be at a different sub net than my LAN. I'm not sure how to address the WiFi Controller in HomeSeer, as I can't actually get into the web server.

    Again, I appreciate the help.

      I used my router to set these units with a specific IP address and had no issues accessing them from the server. I have seen some of these units allow you to access the web server and some do not. I choose not to rely on that for setting a static IP address and set it at the router.

        Finally getting back to this. Billy, could you show me an example of a correctly formatted URL request, say to turn the LED on or off? Thank you.

          I use the drhsIpPlugIn plugin to control the lights after I reverse engineered the commands for the device. I am not controlling them with a URL but events using the drhsIpPlugIn plugin. Does that help?

            There are WiFi RGB controllers in the $5 price range based on ESP8266 that are easily modified to work with HS. A long discussion is at https://forums.homeseer.com/forum/li...csmqtt-control. There is a good chance that what you now have controlling your LED strip also has ESP8266.

            When I did my Notification Frame using 16 LEDs I used a generic $5 Wemos D1 Mini I set it up so that HS could send the IR code via WiFi or it could be done with the handheld remote I had. It was a simple process to press the remote button to display in the console the 16 bit IR code for each button. If I was not trying to match the IR remote then I could have used unique pattern from HS to control whatever function I wanted. https://forums.homeseer.com/forum/li...n-notification
