Send commands via Tellstick to non registered devices?

Post by HaunsTM » Thu Jan 18, 2018 11:08 am

Hi!

I have a question regarding TelldusCenter, my TellStick (Batch 8 ) and TelldusNETWrapper telldus-core API on my Win7 x64 PC.

The thing is that I want to avoid registering my wireless NEXA receivers with TelldusCenter and bind device data like, f ex:
  • [house]
    [model]
    [protocol]
to ONE single computer's Win7-register only. Reason? -I want my own database for all the device data! (It would give me a more portable solution that suits my purposes better since I'm trying to experiment with my own developed C#-home-automation-software.)

Facts:
This is my (NOT TelldusCenter in Win-register registered) device:
  • [house] = 23305
    [model] = "selflearning-switch:nexa"
    [protocol] = "arctec"
My question:
Is it possible to send on/off to my wireless NEXA receiver via my TellStick?

Can I use the C#-wrapper method

Code: Select all

public static int tdSendRawCommand(string command, int reserved)

(telldus-core:

Code: Select all

int WINAPI tdSendRawCommand (const char *command, int reserved)
, found on http://developer.telldus.se/doxygen/gro ... 5c9f1aa6a7) somehow?

Yes, it is possible. You have to encode all the protocol data yourself though. You have to read the source code for the protocol for methods of encoding.

Thank's for your quick reply!

I'm absolutely not asking you to solve my entire problem but I wonder if you can help me on track with my NEXA receiver device with a simple example?

If I have this wrapper C# method,

Code: Select all

public static int tdSendRawCommand(string command, int reserved)
What should I put in the parameters

Code: Select all

string command; int reserved
in order to send "On" to the receiver (via my Tellstick)?
  • [house] = 23305
    [unit] = 1
    [model] = "selflearning-switch:nexa"
    [protocol] = "arctec"

Code: Select all

command = ?

Code: Select all

reserved = ?

First you need to understand how TellStick communicates:
http://developer.telldus.com/doxygen/TellStick.html

The documentation for tdSendRawCommand() explains the parameters.
Parameters:
command The command for TellStick in its native format.
reserved Reserved for future use.
