I am looking for someone who can help me to develop something to make it easy to send and receive UDP commands.
I want to directly send and receive UDP from and to devices.
For example: when my zigbee ligt sensor sense an change in light I want to be able to send UDP:
/hallwaytx/lightsensor/lux/## (with the ## being the value)
And for the sending example: when I want to control a zwave dimmer:
If someone knows a programmer that would be fine too, I don’t mind paying a little bit for this.
Please let me know if someone can help me out so we can discuss it in more detail.
With kind regards, Marc
are you actually talking about sending a network UDP package with a string content?
If so, then that would be possible but be aware that UDP is not a handshaked protocol. Messages are legit to be missed by the receiver.
Yes that’s what I would like
I know it’s not a handshake protocol but that wouldn’t be necessary, I do a lot with UDP and have never had any issue with it within a small network.
In your usage it might be better to have a program ‘somewhere’ that just rebroadcasts selected MQTT topics as udp. All the event interception and topic construct can be handled already by the MQTT hub app on Homey. Such a utility app may even exist already …
well technically not a big deal. LIFX (LAN) uses UDP broadcasts mainly. PM me if you need more infos on that.
I don’t know udp, but maybe with this app? send web socked.
hi Mj-K , I’m also searching for a means to send temperature / humidity values to Loxone but get stuck aal the time. I can send a pulse which is captured in Loxone, but values don’t work? Did you find a suitable way meanwhile?
