Tips and Tricks

Tasker or Llama Integration

Tasker and Llama are awesome apps that allows you to perform actions on events/contexts that you specify.  It is possible to configure them to activate scenes through Home Buddy.  The following video shows how to activate a scene when your device connects to your home wifi in Tasker.  Directions for Llama should be similar.

NOTE: starting with v0.28, the intent data format has changed to homebuddy://activate?vera=<vera id>&scene=<scene id> as Home Buddy now supports multiple Vera instances.

Note, you can find the Scene ID in the Vera UI or in your user data.  Instructions for obtaining your user data can be found here.  You can use JSONLint To pretty-fy the data.  Search for the "scenes" element and get the information from there.
