    Ninja Pan/Tilt Support?

    I've got HS2 and HS3PRO here running on Windows systems (I've been slowly trying to move over to HS3, but I have a lot of OLD X10 gear and HA stuff like Audreys, etc.). Now, I'm not able to use a lot of them as I migrate, but I would like to press some old Ninja Pan/Tilt bases into service on at least one of those HS platforms.

    Does anyone support the use of these interfacing with either HS2 or HS3 now? I'd like to be able to control them through HS. Many of the old scripts and plugins have all dried up, at least online. I do have the various interfaces, but have not been able to get them integrated with HS2 or 3.

    Open to suggestions. Maybe inexpensive Pan/Tilt bases that do work with HS3?

    You can utilize Homeseer 3 with Python and there is Python configuration for use with the Ninja pan/tilt bases here ==>

    X10 CM19A Python driver

    or

    purchase the PT Foscams sold by Homeseer.

      Thanks Pete, I've got the python script working. Now I just have to tie it to HS3. I'll look for scripts for that.

        You can call a python script in Windows. I have never done this. Just give it a try. You will not break HS3 doing this. Looking at the old XTCR14A it appears to be using only four X10 codes.

        I am sure you may be able to replicate this using the Homeseer 3 RFXCom (with a W800-RFX RFX Com RX/TX device) plugin?

        What radio device are you using to talk to the Ninja devices?

        Just sniff the wireless commands with the plugin and replicate them with Homeseer 3 commands maybe?

          I am late to the game.... but I'm trying to get ninja commands working with HS4 and my CM19A device on Windows 10. I can't find a way to get the CM19A recognized with the drivers I have. Can anyone offer some guidance?
