    Scripting Question

    Anybody please show where to find documentation on scripting syntax, variables and such.

    For example: Let's say I want to create an event (or script) to capture the user code that was used to unlock the door in a variable and translate it in a table to come up with the name of the user. I found a way to do the closest thing but it is only possible kind of backwards as in [if this used code is used, do that..]. The problem with this is if you have fifteen user codes, then you need to create fifteen different events.. this beats the purpose of automation and computers.

    So far, I was able to figure out only the two variables below:

    $$time
    $$date

    Please publish variables you know of along with their description/definition. Thanks.

    Regards,
    a.

    The HomeSeer scripting definitions are in the HomeSeer help files. If you need to dig deeper then you would need to load the HomeSeer SDK.

      For functions related to a an alarm system, the specifics will depend on the plug-in you are using. If you ask your question on the forum for the alarm plug-in you have you are more likely to get a useful response.

        Those are replacement variables and their use is just in emails and text to speech (sending a speak command to say "The time is $$time" would tell you the time). Scripting commands are somewhat different, they are all documented here http://homeseer.com/support/homeseer.../scripting.htm and they can get more complex than you need quickly.

        I don't honestly know how locks are represented in HomeSeer, I imagine by device and there are values set up for each user. I take it says 'Unlocked by user 5' or something similar and you want to translate that into 'Unlocked by <<Name>>'? If you have the option to trigger an event on it just being unlocked then you can use something like hs.devicevalue to get the value from the lock and then a select...case type statement to run through the values and give those values a name.
