I recently rearranged the Z-Wave modules in my house to devices that I care about controlling more. I put one on the coffee maker so that I could preload it and either schedule it to turn on or turn it on through the Roomie website, which would be good for if I were heading home sometime and wanted a fresh cup waiting for me. I also put a module on my computer monitors and speakers, which are in my bedroom. This lets a script turn them off when I go to bed and back on right before a script wakes me up with music.
This morning RoomieRemake woke me up with two short scripts. And hey, more news! I used the recently-updated website (which I’ve apparently never directly blogged about) to write the scripts. Here’s a screenshot of that.
Here’s the script that ran on Dreaming Nest, my Home Server, which has a ThinkStick USB Z-Wave controller.
<RoomieScript> <Timing.WaitUntil Hour="8" Minute="50" /> <ZWave.PowerOn DeviceName="Coffee Pot" /> <Timing.WaitUntil Hour="8" Minute="59" /> <ZWave.PowerOn DeviceName="Monitor and Speakers" /> <Timing.WaitUntil Hour="9" Minute="15" /> <ZWave.PowerOff DeviceName="Coffee Pot" /> </RoomieScript>
Here is the script that ran on Rory, the desktop computer in my bedroom.
<RoomieScript> <Timing.WaitUntil Hour="9" /> <Output.OpenFile Path="F:/music/playlists/Driving in Spring.wpl" /> </RoomieScript>
