    avargaskun thought of a potential stop-gap... If you added a Trigger for 'any change' and stored data for each device (lat/log & fence) in separate global variables.... We could then have a single event run when "Any device" changes, and then have the HS event write to our own created virtual devices?

    Not sure if a viable workaround, but just want to make sure you're aware that you can view a map of current device locations from within the plugin configuration page. If you go to Plugins > HSBuddy > Geofences and then tap on the "Clients" tab.
    I'm sure many of us would love the devices... for me, when I was using PHLocation, I could pull up the dashboard and see the address and/or a pre-defined location (then map if needed) of where my kids are.

    avargaskun would you be open to integrating this functionality directly into the plugin? Would be great to have vDevices to show where the family is. thx

    See below. I originally got this from mrhappy and sparkman a few years back and revised it for my use to scrape the lat/lon HS device values and export the result to a HS device string. Its not the most elegant script and requires the Homeseer GPS devices to be devicevalues but it works for me. Good luck and if you need anything else let me know?

    PHP Code:
    Sub Main(ByVal Parm As Object)

    Dim APIKey As String "YourBingAPIKeyHere"
    Dim location As String

    Dim Latitude 
    As String= (hs.DeviceValueEx(3682)) 'my HS3 Lat devicevalue
    Dim Longitude As String= (hs.DeviceValueEx(3680)) '
    my HS3 Lon devicevalue

    location 
    = (Latitude "," Longitude'current position

    Try
    Dim XMLData As New XmlDocument

    Dim URLString As String = "http://dev.virtualearth.net/REST/v1/Locations/" & location & "?o=xml&key=" & APIKey

    XMLData.Load(URLString)

    Dim sNS As String = XMLData.DocumentElement.Attributes("xmlns").Value
    Dim oNsMgr = New XmlNamespaceManager(XMLData.NameTable)
    oNsMgr.AddNamespace("def", sNS)

    Dim BLocation As String = XMLData.SelectSingleNode("//def:Name", oNsMgr).InnerText

    '
    hs.writelog("Address", (BLocation))

    hs.SetDeviceString(3683"<img src='images\Bing\world.png' width='32'>" " " BLocationTrue'my HS3 devicestring

    Catch ex As Exception : hs.writelog("LocationScript", "Error: " & ex.Message.ToString)
    End Try

    Hi Will,

    Can you share this Bing maps script?

    thanks, Walter

    That should work fine.

    The file watcher instructions are slightly wrong. You need to use the three Homeseer 3 dlls (not the HS4 versions).

    Edit: Instructions changed and 3 Homeseer dll's added to download zip.

    Thanks Jon. I am actually testing out your file watcher script now to see if any change in the DB file to use as a trigger.

    I will try your poll solution next.

    There is no native method to trigger on Global Variable change..

    You could poll a script to check its current value and compare against the previous value and if different, trigger an event....

    I managed to do this with the SDJ-health plug-in using the log monitor. HSBuddy is logging the lat/long in the HS log. I made a trigger on the incoming Logtext This is written to a global var within the log monitor plugin. Then I copy this data to a virtual device with an event.
