Kinect 2.0

Was wondering if there were any plans for Kinect 2.0 with the Xbox One Kinect?

Any news on this? Would you be able to use the IR transmitter in the kinect for XB one?

No timeframe yet, sorry.

When I will do it, my first goal will be to replicate all the features that already exist in the current plugin. Then I will add Kinect 2 specific features. Regarding the use of the IR transmitter, I could not find anything like this in the microsoft kinect 2 API, so I'm not sure it's possible.

Hey Spud -

How about a checkbox, or even a trigger, to put the Kinect into IR Mode - I believe the SDK has an "easy" method for this for the 1st Gen Kinect? (So asking for that now, not for Kinect 2)

What do you mean exactly by "put the Kinect in IR mode". The SDK has some method to get frames from the IR camera but what would you do with it?

Basically, Nightvision - Since I use the kinects to take pictures for a backup security (I have 1080p cameras as well) but since they are connected, it can get some IR pictures... Not a huge deal, but was just a thought. I have a request Im going to add to the main request thread now, for a different item.

I guess I could add a "Take IR Picture" action event

in version 3.0.0.42 I have added the possibility to get the Infrared stream instead of the standard RGB stream. Same thing from the "Take picture" action:

Hey Spud,

Any chance you could make the Image Format selectable as an event action so I could switch the output between IR and RGB? Thinking about switching the output to IR below certain lux and then back to RGB when it goes above.

cheers,

ShimmerNZ

no expected Beta or release date planed yet, I have to buy one first . My raw estimate would be end of summer.

if you are eager to test the kinect plugin, I would advise to buy a kinect for Xbox 360 on ebay or similar ($30ish)

Spud,
did you get a Kinect <V2|One> yet?
I'd be willing to get one and send it your way to get the ball rolling?

Any update on this? I have one sitting and waiting, and ready to pull the trigger on paying for plugin once it has this support.

with the appearance of Alexa and Google Home, the Kinect plug-in is not that popular anymore, so I must confess that support for Kinect 2 has considerably move down on my priority list.

Kinect 2

Hi Spud,
I talked to sales at Homeseer today and told them I wanted to use it with Kinect and they failed to mention to me only Kinect v1 is supported. I have the Kinect2. I bought the Kinect plugin today and then found out it won't work.

So is there anyway you could be persuaded to move Kinect2 up on the list?
I don't want to be connected to the internet so the Echo is out as it is cloud based.
