So I decided to make a custom app for controlling my Insteon lights in my house with Google’s App Inventor for Android.
More details to come. Here is an early screen shot:
I am planning on putting this in the Android Market as soon as they allow apps from App Inventor in. I’ll try getting a beta out before then. Check back soon.
It works by doing internet calls to the SmartLinc network via ethernet. I’m planning on having it control my air conditioning so when I come close to my house, it automatically cools down the place. Something with Google’s Latitude, most likely.
Updated to control my Thermostat modules:
I now have a few apps in the App Marketplace. This one will probably go up sometime this weekend. I have the temperature sensors working for thermostats, and full control of my lights.
Its on the market as a beta app now, download Controid now!
