Probably posted in the wrong older forum. But above is my modification of the first script for Yosemite that acts on received messages via iMessage and enables execution of action groups etc. Have updated it since this post enabling two way communication which is quite handy - ie. After an hours absence indigo sends a imessage listing on devices and asking if I want to turn them off - a yes reply turns them all off. Happy to post that - but a few triggers and variables with that one - if interested.

There appears to be a Yosemite issue with apple scripting which I though I had but appeared to be changes in Yosemite to imessaging given lack of defined alerts etc - anyhow the above script is for Yosemite and works really well so far.

Thank you Glenn. I'll try to get this one working.

Re: iMessage/Messages/Siri Indigo Control Script

I've been working on this for a while, too, and think I must concur. My troubleshooting indicates that the -1708 error code indicates a missing handler. There's a nice list of handlers required by Messages in the Messages Dictionary. You must have a handler for each one of those, for example:

Code: Select all
on av chat started
end av chat started


...even if your code doesn't use AV Chat, that instance must be handled. When I went through and added all those various handlers, things started working again for this script.
It should be noted that the other sample scripts in the Messages Script folder aren't complete -- not even the iTunes script that this piece of code was built from. Running the iTunes script generated the same -1708 error we've been seeing here for me.
So, it seems to be not so much an issue of Yosemite being broken, but more strict about having all the handlers it needs than it used to be with Mavericks and earlier. I wonder if this is documented on the Developers' site -- I've not had a chance to go digging through that yet...

I believe you are quite right.

The link below

- has all the handlers added - which is the main reason it works for Yosemite. There were also issues with different handlers if chat window open, closed, buddy selected etc.

Re: iMessage/Messages/Siri Indigo Control Script

The link I posted above is working well in my Yosemite setup

Go to messages, preferences, script handlers, open directory and put it with all the others. Select it, change the buddy handle to allowed and away you go

Re: iMessage/Messages/Siri Indigo Control Script

Thanks, found that.

Now, regarding

4. Create a new Apple ID with a new or otherwise unused email address and enable it in Messages.

does this really mean a new apple ID? or just an alias email account on my main ID?

Re: iMessage/Messages/Siri Indigo Control Script

Basically you need to be able to send iMessages from the indigo server (so need an account to do that) and this needs to be a seperate account.

My setup is with a standalone server - so I did create a appleID for the server - signed into imessage with that - can now send iMessages from the server. Need to check that works well before using the script.

Re: iMessage/Messages/Siri Indigo Control Script

Thanks Glenn and DVDDave,

I have it working with Yosemite with some basic action groups.

I have a new apple ID for my mini/indigo called 'indigo'. messages to this contact work as expected and control the scenes. But siri keeps trying to text the wrong address. I'll keep poking around with this.

edit, got my contacts straightened out. works great!

Re: iMessage/Messages/Siri Indigo Control Script

Here is what finally worked for me......change name to name of iMessage account name that is sending the message. Name the file Messages Indigo Control.scpt and save in application scripts....easiest way to get there is is messages menu then preferences then apple script handler then open scripts folder and create or place the file in there.

Code: Select all
(*

File: Messages Indigo Control.scpt

Abstract: This script is based on the iTunes Remote Control script which demonstrates the AppleScript "Message Received" handler for Messages. It will parse incoming messages and control Indigo in response.

Re: iMessage/Messages/Siri Indigo Control Script

Hi again,

I can get this working but only if i leave the preferences window open and applescript handler set to indigo control.....as soon as i close the window iMessage no longer works.....do i have to set that script a different way so that it'll be permanent? it always defaults to none no matter what script i choose. Do I have it in the wrong folder?

Matt

Re: iMessage/Messages/Siri Indigo Control Script

Hi Matt,

What you are doing should work. When you bring up preferences after closing it, is the script still selected? If not, maybe try repairing disk permissions or trashing the Messages pref file.

Re: iMessage/Messages/Siri Indigo Control Script

Hi,
Trying to get this very cool system going...

I'm not able to get incoming messages to have Indigo react.
I have been able to get the script to "stick" in the preferences pane (applescript handler).
If I run the script within the script editor and give it a command, I can turn on a device in Indigo.
But if I send a message with the same command, nothing happens (I see it in the Messages app, but it seems like the script is not kicking in).
I have placed the file according to the instructions (located via the preferences dialog).

Anything I should try?

Thank you
Alain

Re: iMessage/Messages/Siri Indigo Control Script

Hi all,
Really keen to get this working however i'm stuck at the script stage never mind the iMessage bit. I've downloaded the latest script (I think) from above in this thread. opening it in script editor and running it I'm trying status, that works and responds alive and well.

If I run and type 'turn on bed' then I get 'error turning on bed'

I'm sure i've had this working before but then came across the errors everyones mentioned so parked it for a while and have come back to find the updated scripts.

I've confirmed that a standalone applescript can turn on bed ok but not the Messages Indigo Control Script sample.scpt file I have.

Any suggestions please?

Thanks
Noel

Re: iMessage/Messages/Siri Indigo Control Script

Mine will work sometimes and sometimes not and i don't understand why. I wish i could help more because it is nice when it works. I wish indigo would build this functionality in or at least develop the plugin further.
