    /usr/local/HomeSeer/html/maps/ and file name is $YMD$-drew.png

    I had to create the maps directory

    EDIT: linux is case sensitive as well.
    Understood, however the following event produces no image at all :

    Folder: C:\Program Files (x86)\HomeSeer HS3\html\PHLocation2\Maps\
    File: test.png

    Tried quotes and no quotes around the folder string.

    It installed on a windows box.

    PS in the .vb script i use currently to generate the static maps I have to use this path, linux format on a windows box: /html/PHLocation2/Maps/. i've also tried this in the Phlocation static map event action and it didnt work.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Hi Paul, default static maps are working, after setting the static maps options per user device markers also show up correctly.

    However I cant seem to get the custom path or filename to work correctly, the best I can get is a image file named exactly ".png" :-)

    I've tried every path string I can think of using back and forward slashes, relative and absolute paths including and excluding quotes.

    My final goal is to have a custom image file name in the maps folder, I was also assuming you can have a custom file name without specifying a path, is that correct ? (I also tried specifying the path)


    Thanks,

    That is what I said.

    it's still easier to cut and paste via the log

    The procedure of getting the DeviceID is a PITA I know but I can't see a better way of doing it.
    As far as I'm aware the DeviceID sent by geofencing applications is not available for the user to view from within the respective device so the only way to get it is to send a test transmission.

    I did discuss with Randy about having the plug-in store "heard" DeviceID's from which the user then chooses one when adding a new root device but this wouldn't really help because these apps don't send the device name or anything else that can easily be used to identify the device. If you had more than 1 DeviceID in the heard list, then there would no way to identify which ID belonged to which device.

    After getting the id. You have to send a webhook again to get the geofence added as a HS3 device Just FYI.

    Once a GeoFency root is created and configured, any properly configured fence or iBeacon on the app will create the correct PHL2 device in HomeSeer.
