  • How to set Events page as the initial start-up web page?

    I would like the "Events" page to be the initial start-up page for HomeSeer.

    I have been unable to do this in Settings + Custom + Use Custom Page 1 as Home Page and setting the URL. I have tried just "Events" and "http://<IPAddress>/Events and neither works. (I get error: "404 Bad Request: \Events")

    The main reason I want to use Events as the initial page is that the Device Information page that isa the normal default takes almost a minute to fully load (I have a LOT of devices.)

    Try leaving off the 'http://' In my case, '' seems to work.
    To speed up loading of devices page, filter the device list to the few that you want to look at most often.

      Used: 404 Bad Request: \

      The IP address is correct although I usually use a DNS name to access it.

      I tried the DNS name "" and it didn't work: 404 Bad Request: \

      I don't know where that leading slash is coming from in the error message. It looks like a clue to the problem.

        Set the URL to "/Events".

        I found that the very first time I clicked 'Home' after checking 'Use Custom Page 1 as Home Page', I got a similar error, "404 Bad Request: \/Events". But then clicked Back and clicked Home again, it worked as expected. Go figure.

          All you really need to do is open the Events page in your browser, and set that as a Home Page. It will open when you start your browser.
          Alternatively, create a desktop shortcut with the Events page as the destination. Opening that shortcut will open the Events page first.
          Real courage is not securing your Wi-Fi network.
