I'll try it out this weekend and add it to the app if it's straightforward.

I would be happy to try on my iOS devices if it works with Hs3.

Is this app still under development? It's nice, but not being able to group thermostat components into one device is a bit of show stopper for me. Any plans to fix the thermostat issues?

Issue with no device control

So I am having the same issue with HSBuddy as I am with HSTouch (and the designer).

All of the devices show up but I have no control options, only status. No errors in my log. Anyone seen this? JSON and Ascii are both enabled.

When I start HSBuddy I am seeing this in my log:

Problem serializing data for JSON request: Error during serialization or deserialization using the JSON JavaScriptSerializer. The length of the string exceeds the value set on the maxJsonLength property.

This is an excellent app!! Just wondering if you are continuing to develop this app, since I've not seen any activity since March with v.1.0.10. Are there any plans for future enhancements? Also, can you add the capability to Enable or Disable an event and not just Run the event. Thanks.

This app definitely had some good potential. I wonder what happened to Avargaskun. Why would he spend all that time making this good app and then just disappear? Hope he's ok.

Avargaskun, if you're still around but don't want to work on this app anymore, maybe you could open source it and let the community build on top of it. I'm sure we'd all appreciate it

Totally agree! Good to see he popped into the forum today, so who know he may give an update.

Hey guys,

Sorry I've been away for a while. Switched jobs a couple months back and that's been keeping me extremely busy. As I continue to get adjusted to the new schedule I'll start dedicating some time to the app once again

Cheers!

Android

Started using the app yesterday and I'm very pleased so far. Using s6edge Android.

Have not managed to find my camera yet. Added manually through hstouch and Netcom plug in.

Any suggestions? It's working in homeseer original app.
I can

There is a couple reasons why the camera functionality was disabled in the Android app:
  • The camera option in HSBuddy requires a Direct Connection to HomeSeer, it does not support MyHomeSeer. This means the HS server needs to be visible to the Internet. In almost any case this should be done only using secure connections (SSL).
  • Android does not support connecting directly to HS using SSL because HS uses old security protocols that Google explicitly disabled (which is also why HS cannot be accessed directly via SSL using Chrome).

I took a look at some options and found a way to access HomeSeer via SSL using newer security protocols. I've documented how to do this, by Using a proxy for SSL redirection.

With that out of the way, I've pushed a new version of the Android app that re-enables camera support. Anyone using the app should get a prompt to upgrade next time they use the app, or it can be downloaded directly from HockeyApp.

New build and HS3 plug-in

After a while of not being able to get back to it, I finally had some time to work on HSBuddy again. A new build of the application is available with some bug fixes. Also available, the first version of an HS3 plug-in that complements the functionality in the app.

The first feature available through the plug-in is the ability to view cameras added to HS3 via netcam, hstouch, ultranetcam3 or ultrasighthoundvideo3. Although that was already possible with the hsbuddy.aspx hack, it was not very stable. More features will be coming.

Information on the plugin, where to download it, how to install and configure it: http://hsbuddy.avglabs.net/pages/ser...server-plug-in

Suggestions on how to configure your network to connect to the plugin securely: http://hsbuddy.avglabs.net/pages/network.html

The new versions of HSBuddy for iOS and Android can be found in their usual locations:

iOS: https://rink.hockeyapp.net/apps/55ad...99834344dcf288

Android: https://rink.hockeyapp.net/apps/e1b5...4d842273ba7e60

Thanks you! I like how it organizes the info out of the box and let's you select your favorites.

The change log is saying that the plugin can retrieve cameras from UltraNetCam3, though dos not (yet?) seem to be the case. Using the latest and wit the plugin installed (log is saying client connected), the camera setting page in the iPhone app does not list UltraNetCam3 as choice (only HSTouch). Do I need to configure something else?

New plugin and app versions

Thanks to those who've helped test the earlier version of the plug-in. I'm releasing a new version of plugin and app that will address some of the issues found in the previous release, including:
  • It is no longer necessary to open any ports on your home server. All operations, including cameras, now work with the JSON apis.
  • Which also means that, cameras are now fully supported when connecting through MyHomeSeer
  • Added support for UltraNetCam3, for real this time (thanks pcp)
  • The plugin has fewer dependencies when running on Linux - should be able to run without installing any additional packages (if you still run into problems, try installing mono-devel first)
  • Fixed a few more bugs in the app.

To get the new versions:

Cheers!

PS. I'll work on getting the plugin listed under the BETA section of the updater to make the upgrade process easier.

If you want to earn extra credits and help me test the updater, you can install the plug-in following these steps instead:
  1. Download the updater_override.txt file and place in your HS3 installation folder.
  2. In HS3 go to PLUG-INS -> Manage and click on Update Listing
  3. From under Overrides select HSBuddy and click Download and install
  4. Remove the updater_override.txt file
  5. You may need to disable/enable the plug-in once it is installed to force it to restart.

Worked flawlessly!

So, I followed your instructions for downloading the plugin through HS3 plugin manager, with the use of the override text file. Installation was flawless. I have installed the latest version of HSBuddy on my android phone. Images from my cameras are there. Thank you so much!

Upgraded without issue

I updated the plugin using the updater_override.txt file and worked without issues. I also updated the ios app and showing (UltraNetCam) cameras using MyHomeSeer worked fine from a remote location (i.e. cell connection). Thank you and nice work!

I used the updater method and it worked flawlessly.
The connection and views of my devices appear to be much quicker in this version?
