Its the wee small hours and I really should be in bed but I have just installed DemoPad on my iPhone (and iPad) and been playing with trying to get it to control my LightwaveRF installation. It works! What I needed to do was find out the actual IP address of my LightwaveRF WiFi Link (because DemoPad doesn’t currently support UDP broadcasts) and I had to run DemoPad on a device already authorised by the WiFi link (i.e my iPhone rather than iPad).
I added a couple of simple buttons to the screen, configured them to send the correct UDP packets and it works, beautifully. I now have some work to do to get it looking the way I want, but this is a real viable alternative to the official LightwaveRF app for realtime control. More blogging as I learn more.
