Security panel via scripts

Does anyone know of a set of scripts or plugin to add a security panel to Indigo via a Control Page? I am writing one and using cheap Android tablets with a Kiosk App to present the security controls.

It's presently all in AppleScript.

Is this of any value to anyone else?

Nice! This is really interesting, I am missing more alarm functionality in Indigo.
Please share if you'd like. :D

Re: Security panel via scripts

So I am a bit new to the forum. Questions I have;
1. Did I pick the right place for this topic?
2. How do I present this info? Is a there a quick and easy way to parse out of the database just the parts people need? Or I guess I should ask is there a generally accepted way to share besides me creating a download location?

Looks good joshv!
I am interested in in the details on how you use the keypad.
So each number image is associated with an AppleScript and?

T.I.A.

MacMini 2.3 GHz Intel Core i7 16GB DDR3
Indigo Pro 6.x OSX 10.9.5

A very complex set of applescripts run the interface and the logic. To interface with sensors, I am using an Insteon 2450 I/O Linc per zone.

I have to say that I have been a bit unhappy with the iolinc reliability. Sometimes it is slow to register input, other times it triggers the output when I haven't told it to. If anyone knows of a better solution, I am game.

Hi joshv - There are several options depending on what you want to share.

- You can share scripts in a post here (they should be enclosed in a CODE block.)

- You can share scripts or Control Page images as a ZIP file by making them available through an Indigo File Library Contribution..

- Some users make files available through public Dropbox (or other cloud service) folders.

There is no way that I know of to share groups of Indigo components like Devices or Action Groups.
