Project Description

This is a Windows Screensaver that will display device property and mode status from HouseBot home automation software.

I use this screensaver as a 'smart' bedside remote. I have a USB 7" LCD monitor that runs a software remote, when left for 1 minute the screensaver starts that displays the property values in my system time and house events devices.

Settings page supports the following commands:

GetPropertyValue( DeviceName, PropertyName )
GetPropertyValue( DeviceName, PropertyName, LineNumber )
GetModeState( ModeName )

PLEASE NOTE This device requires the External Control Device installed in HouseBot and the HBControlMod.dll to be registered on the screensaver pc. More information can be found within the HouseBot help files.

Also requires .net framework 2.0
