Hi,

 

I'm keen to start controlling my B&O system through a MLG using Domoticz running on a raspberry Pi. While the MLG is not currently supported natively by the Domoticz software (and I suspect never will due to its rarity), I'd like to control it via the ethernet interface. Is there anywhere I can find documentation as to how to go about this?

 

Regards to all

Ah, now I understand - sorry. I can GENERATE key presses by the scripts which connect over port 9000 using sockets. The limitation in receiving keystrokes is - as you have said, limited to LIGHT commands (as far as I remember).

The way I handle what you want to do is via the receipt of the IR signal in a raspberry using LIRC. That can receive the IR and send out a http post.

See here for the IR receiving hardware (or use an IR Puck - which I did eventually)

Ah that's a shame!! I do have a spare IR puck and a pi so might try it out, only snag is I'd need one in each room! 

Thanks for all your help.

Hello,

I am trying to link my MLGW to my domoticz system (raspberry pi + rfxcom) in order to control my window blinds using my TV remote.

At the moment, the MLGW is working fine and interconnects a Lutron Grafik Eye unit to a BV7.

I guess I will have to use the MLGW custom strings to send commands to domoticz. Have any of you succeeded? If so, would you have any tips to help me? I have tried the links provided here but they no longer work.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Christian

Hi Frog, would you be willing to re-share the script - the link above is no longer working.

Thanks!

Luke
