Mitsubishi Mini-Split HVAC Control

Has anyone tried to control a Mitsubishi mini-split heat pump A/C unit from iRule? The Mitsu unit uses Honeywell RedLink RF remote control, but has some sort of "Internet Gateway"which allows control from a phone app. Is there an API (or other hook) that we could use to control it from iRule?

iRule has announced that V4 will contain logic for variables.

Any insiders with more info ? Release date ?

One thing I'd really like to see is the date and time being available. Combined with variables and logic this would be really powerful for automation.

Cheers,

That's good to hear.

I hope it includes setting variables with feedback.

This forum is a bit quiet lately. Are people going elsewhere to discuss iRule or is the novelty wearing off?

It does! One example would be your AV receivers mute status or surround mode driving a variable to set image states.

It's the end of summer. People are taking their last bits of vacations, getting in one last trip to wherever, still boating, etc. Things are always pretty slow in home theater in June/July/August. HT forum activity and industry news start picking back up a little before CEDIA when kids are going back to school and everybody is getting back in the fall grind.

The plan is to have the new release at CEDIA, so end of August/beginning of September. Beta testing begins in a few days.

I'm curious about your ideas for this... I could see some macros for "home" and "away" buttons that could conditionally change lighting depending on time of day (which could also be done with an automation controller), but do you have some other ideas how you'd use a time/date variable? Thanks - just curious what you're thinking about.

Cheers,

I'd like to be able to log when my sons start gaming and then auto-shutdown after a set period.

Yes ... I'm the dad from hell !!

Last time I checked, it was impossible to port all the work I'd done designing pages from my iPad 3 to a generic Android tablet. Has this been made any easier than starting from scratch. IIRC only a very few Android tablet models were supported. Is this still the case? I'd like to be able to buy cheap tablets and wall mount them in each room, but not if it means having to reassemble everything from scratch again.
