Toggle the EG window (show/hide) ?

I am now running 0.5 rc4 and have noticed that launching the exe while EG is running won't show the window, as it did on earlier versions. I had an AHK hotkey for toggling the EG window, and I'd very much like this to work again. I could not find a global hotkey in EG to toggle the EG window. for re...

Re: Inactive audio output actions

OK great, I think that would be the least buggy route to take. Is there a plugin for eventghost to work with the smartthings plug? I have one of these already knocking about. https://www.samsung.com/uk/smartthings/sensors-plug-f-app-uk-v2/ If you're happy communicating to/from EG using the internet...

Re: Cloud-less communication with EG (door sensor)

But... and there is always a but.. ZWave is a Mesh Network and every device that is hard wired is a repeater. if you do not have a network that has enough connections or ways for data to get from the device to the controller and vice versa a device could be busy doing something else and if it is as...

Cloud-less communication with EG (door sensor)

Sorry about the rather cryptic thread title. My issue is this: I have a door sensor that I need to be able to talk to EG without connecting via the internet first. ¤ I tried Tellstick Duo - unreliable (it receives a different signal from the door sensor each time and so is practically unusable - Tel...

Re: RFXtrx won't talk to EG

I now notice that having the plugin enabled in EG, it slurps up 25% CPU, as soon as I disable rfxtrx plugin, cpu usage drops to 0%, and re-enabling it immediately sets it back to 25%.

Any clues on this?

is it important that the camera sends the message to EG? or can you use a piece of viewing software that has an API and we can get motion detection events that way?. Blue Iris is a suggestion if that is the case
I'll check out Blue Iris thanks.

RFXcom - Continuation of my 2-year old Magnet switch thread...

So I just bought a TellStick Znet and a Z-wave magnet switch, and noticed that the Znet requires an internet connection. I Don't want to talk to EG via the internet. so I'm thinking if I get this: https://www.kjell.com/se/sortiment/el-verktyg/el-produkter/starkstrom/usb-styrning/rfxtrx433e-usb-contr...
