DemoPad controlling LightwaveRF

Its the wee small hours and I really should be in bed but I have just installed DemoPad on my iPhone (and iPad) and been playing with trying to get it to control my LightwaveRF installation. It works! What I needed to do was find out the actual IP address of my LightwaveRF WiFi Link (because DemoPad doesn’t currently support UDP broadcasts) and I had to run DemoPad on a device already authorised by the WiFi link (i.e my iPhone rather than iPad).

I added a couple of simple buttons to the screen, configured them to send the correct UDP packets and it works, beautifully. I now have some work to do to get it looking the way I want, but this is a real viable alternative to the official LightwaveRF app for realtime control. More blogging as I learn more.

      No how to specifically, but there are some posts on the forum about the UDP protocol required. You simply need to set Demopad up to send the required messages via UDP to the Wi-Fi link. You could try posting a request in the forum for some help.
