Smart things

Re: Anyone tried ninja blocks?

Thanks for feedback. I gave up trying with ninja blocks and now playing with https://github.com/pimatic/pimatic
Then calling the alertme api via shell command.

Running on my Raspberry Pi and it uses node.js. Its a little slow loading but works well so far and has a nice web gui frontend.

Re: Continue or move on?

If I buy the accessories from British Gas will my current alertme system recognize them and will the alertme web interface pick them up?

Re: Continue or move on?

Thanks for the replay. I would like to purchase more smartplugs around the home but would work out too expensive. The other option was to buy something like Remote-Controlled Sockets 3-Pack from maplins for £9. Also the smart contact sensors do not appear under the shop section. Would like to be not...

Continue or move on?

Hi. Been using alertme for about 2 years but wanting to add more devices such as motion detection, door entry etc. Wanted some opinions whether to stay on with alertme or move on to another technology? If so, any recommendations?

Thanks
