indilinq - an alternative mobile app & plugin for indigo

Hello everyone,

We have recently released the indilinq plugin and mobile app for iOS devices (works better on an iPhone) that provides an alternative to indigo Touch.

Both the plugin and mobile app are FREE and without any adverts or need to register or provide personal details.

If you have the time please have a look and tell us what you think? We are open to improving it and adding more features based on demand...

More information here: http://indilinq.com/

Thank you!

Re: indilinq - an alternative mobile app & plugin for indigo

thanks for the new plugin, have downloaded it and installed. that was easy. Now I am trying to use it and have some questions, where should I post these.. here?

And looking at the plugin I see that the code is not open (.so files ) .
I understand that the technology is proprietary and you don't want to give away your intellectual property, but as this software has deep access to into my home I would like to have an understanding if it is kosher. Is there a way for e.g. Matt or Jay (after the proper agreements) to have a look at the underlying code to give an ok that nothing wrong is going on..

thanks so much for your contribution.

Re: indilinq - an alternative mobile app & plugin for indigo

Hello Karl,

Thanks for trying indilinq out! We hope to have a sub-forum soon but open to all questions here.

We are happy to give source-code access to indigo domotics to validate that nothing bad or out of the ordinary is happening.

We made indilinq this way to ensure your privacy, security and that no information is collected or transmitted anywhere else apart from your Mac and your iPhone. It is your home, you should be 100% in control.

Regards,

Kostas

Re: indilinq - an alternative mobile app & plugin for indigo

Thanks CliveS! No matter how much testing, something will be broken/missing and thank you for reporting!

This means a module dependency has not been installed, we will amend the plugin asap.

Our apologies for this!

Re: indilinq - an alternative mobile app & plugin for indigo

The "six" module is now included in the plugin package so this error should disappear if you re-install the plugin. If there are any other issues with the plugin please let us know.

Thank you!

Re: indilinq - an alternative mobile app & plugin for indigo

I just noticed that the latest version on the app store is "Updated: Mar 09, 2017, Version: 1.0.6" but I have downloaded and installed Version: 1.0.5 !!

Re: indilinq - an alternative mobile app & plugin for indigo

Indeed the indilinq plugin is on v1.0.5 and the mobile app is on v1.0.6 as they follow different development & release paths as more features will be added and any code bugs fixed.

If there are any dependencies, meaning a minimum version of the plugin for the app to run this will be displayed when the app loads and on of course on the app store & our web site.

If it causes confusion of course we will be re-aligning the plugin and app versions.

Without seeing the source code, there is no way to know that this is the case. :wink:

I would not install it on my system on this basis - my 2 cents worth. :)

Re: indilinq - an alternative mobile app & plugin for indigo

Oh please please please: tell me this iOS app enables direct location based triggering of Indigo!

And if it doesn't please tell me that this is #1 on your feature request list. Seriously, Home Remote kinda sort works, but its UI is just painful and unintuitive to the point I have to teach myself how to use it all over again any time I need to add or change something.

This is a big missing feature that your app could address and that would greatly encourage adoption. Frankly, easy, reliable presence detection is the single, solitary thing I find missing from the Indigo ecosystem. To make it work now requires some version of kludgy workarounds via IFTTT and Better Email, iBeacons, raspberry Pi beacons, the Ubiquiti AP plugin, and/or Home Remote.

We totally understand autolog and if there is any way to convince people that this is 100% true, we're open to suggestions, as not everyone will have the technical knowledge of going through the code of a plugin in Python and the mobile app in Swift.

We are more than open and happy to discuss new features! If you can provide a bit more information and what you mean by location based triggering then we can get our minds to see how it can be achieved.

I guess key thing is knowing where your 'home' indigo system is first and then understanding if you are going home or are 'in' your home?

Indigo doesn't know where my phone is without the workarounds mentioned. What I imagine is just like the iOS Find Friends app--in your app I would set a geofence to trigger the app to tell Indigo to execute something. For flexibility, that something should be able to be anything: action or device. And ability for multiple geofence actions would be ideal.

So it doesn't matter where the system is relative to the geofence: there are use cases for "tell Indigo I'm leaving work" as well as "tell Indigo I'm leaving my girlfriend's place" and "tell Indigo I'm leaving my house." And of course the reverse: "Tell Indigo I've arrived at home/work/whatever."

Re: indilinq - an alternative mobile app & plugin for indigo

Nice initiative. And this could rely have potential :)

After installing and some minutes of testing I am missing some things:

1 - The possibility to limit devices. I have a lot of devices that I dont need to be shown in the app. The same applies to rooms.
2 - The possibility to rename rooms. My folders in indigo are generic, and not necessarily they way they should be presented.
3 - The possibility to copy setup to another device.

Re: indilinq - an alternative mobile app & plugin for indigo

Downloaded again from your web page link (3 times) deleted the plugin 3 times and reloaded but still have load failure.
Not sure what service_identity error is all about.

Starting PuDB debugging of plugin indilinq.indigoPlugin.
To set breakpoints add indigo.debugger() calls and reload debugger.

:0: UserWarning: You do not have a working installation of the service_identity module: 'No module named service_identity'. Please install it from <https://pypi.python.org/pypi/service_identity> and make sure all of its dependencies are satisfied.
