[ANSWERED]Controlling a virtual device from Indigo Touch

I have a few Virtual On/Off devices set up to support status, but not toggle. They are actually computers that I monitor and remotely shutdown (safely using a Python script) in case of bad weather or when power drops at home.

The one problem I'm having is that the devices won't work from Indigo Touch. When pressing the power button in the standard "Devices" list, a "toggle" message is logged on the server. As I mentioned, these don't support toggle, so nothing happens.

Is there any way to set this up so pressing the power button in Touch will send the appropriate turn on/off command based on device status?

Re: Controlling a virtual device from Indigo Touch

You need to implement the toggle action group. That group could contain a script that looks at the on state for the device and sets the value appropriately.
