Success!

Just wanted to let you know I was able to get the iTach WiFi to Serial (WF2SL) to successfully work with the Cynical Network plugin and raise and close my newly installed shades. It works perfectly and the responsiveness is great. I used a system by Superior Window Coverings called Phoenix Automation (http://www.phoemixautomation.com) which was significantly cheaper than other bids. My wife had me cue the James Bond Theme before the event. This is exactly what I hoped it would do. Thanks Perry!

Re: Success!

I also wanted to give Perry props. This is exactly what I was looking for. I have been needing a good way to "guest" and wife proof my media room and I am not a command line type of guy. I had been using irule (sorry indigo) and integrating indigo into it but having to give up my cell phone or ipad to operate the system was never a good option for me. Additionally, I never had good reliability with other IR options with insteon/indigo. With your itach and network plugins I was able to get my devices turned on and off with a single button on the kpls within a few minutes compared to a few hours on the irule builder interface. Basically turn on the projector with the WF2SL, then Integra receiver and change input, and finally turn on the FIOS box with the IP2IR. That's just the start but I was amazed at how simple it was. Anyways, thanks again and sorry to thread jack. I just didn't want to start a new praise thread.
