    Kevin,

    Still trying to have Homeseer create a new section under automation called 1-Wire as there are many folks today using 1-wire for automation. This is a bit more than just temperature and humidity stuff. That said though we really should have a separate section here on Homeseer.

    Question on how this works. Will Homeseer continually send commands to the iSmart device based on the above settings, or will it just send the commands one time and iSmart will continue running in that mode until another command is sent?

    If Homeseer is continually sending the commands, I'd have a concern that other activity on Homeseer could cause variations in the speed of sending commands to the iSmart device.

    Thanks for all of your work!
    I think finally result will be like this :
    when you enter "Music Mode" , it will continually sending the commands to the iSmart device.
    But once receive any control command by HSTouch / Device Status Page / Script , it will stop the Music Mode and execute the command.

    For "Scenes Mode" , that should be handle by the timer , but once receive any control command , will also stop the timer and execute the new command.

    But I am thinking how to make it work on multi-controller smoothly.

    In my idea , I will create one more device call "Music Mode" , that I already done on above post.
    And I will create another device call "Mode" , it will have 10 buttons , say Mode 1 to Mode 10.

    When you press the Mode 1 button , may be is Red and Green and Blue change every 2 seconds.
    But I don't want to hard code the mode button. So the user can define the mode content in the text file , then I read into my plug-in.

    For example :
    [Mode1]
    Seq=3
    1=255,0,0
    2=0,255,0
    3=0,0,255
    Interval=2000
    Fade=1

    So , will change your define color every 2 seconds and loop. And color will change immediately without fade in fade out function.
    This sounds perfect!

    The controller can control three individual Plain White LED stripe or one RGB LED stripe.

    Can i control this from hs3 yet? and if so can it control the wifi or ethernet version to avoid x10/plc?
    X10/PLC is just a option. If you control by Wifi or Ethernet , you can ignore the X10 / PLC option.

    I'm not sure if you can do the scene idea directly within Homeseer or if you'd need some sort of application running in the background to implement....but hopefully it is something that could be done! Looking forward to see whether others have the same request.

    Thanks!

    I have some 12v led strip lighting that would be nice to automate...and if that works out I'd like to think about adding more, but just not completely sure if this is available and ready for release yet.
    Yes , hardware are ready.
    You can take a look on my on-line store.
    HS2 , HS3 and Audio plug-in are also available. (After finish the Audio Function , will study how to submit the Plug-in to the HS3 updater)

    General User Manual :

    Audio Plug-in : (This is the separate program , later will merge into HS3 plug-in)
    http://forums.homeseer.com/showthrea...162070&page=12

    HS3 Plug-in v1.0.0.0 :
    http://forums.homeseer.com/showthrea...=162070&page=9

    There is no special request on the LED stripe or MR16 LED spot light.
    It support DC12V and DC24V LED stripe.
    Your existing LED stripe is RGB or Mono color ?
