HouseBot Plugin

Post by a11an » Wed May 30, 2012 7:27 pm

I have written a plugin for HouseBot home automation software, more information can be found at

This plugin will allow you to run the following actions:

- Set Device Property Value
- Set Mode State
- Execute Task
- Blank Remote Screen
- Open Remote Panel
- Close Remote Panel
- Execute Remote Application
- Minimize Remote
- Restore Remote

This is my first attempt at python coding, any bugs or advice on my code :D please let me know.

To Install:

- Create a new folder called 'HouseBot' in the location '%ProgramData%\EventGhost\plugins\'
- Extract the to the 'HouseBot' folder
- Restart EventGhost
- HouseBot plugin will now appear in the Program Control menu of the Add Plugin menu.
- Once the plugin has been installed you will need to open the plugin setting to set the server, port and password.

Please note this device requires the External Control Device installed in HouseBot and the HBControlMod.dll to be registered on the EventGhost PC.

I have made an update to the plugin, the new version will now allow you to place in-line python expressions. For example I can now enter {eg.event.payload[0]} in the SetPropertyValue action, and this will use the first payload value.
