Use Raspberry PI’s GPIO in HomeSeer3

I recently purchased a Raspberry Pi 2 Model B with the aim of making it my new HomeSeer3 ‘box’. Previously I ran HS3 in a Windows 7 virtual machine on an ESXI server. However, that server had to be repurposed for my security cam system (using BlueIris). Furthermore, I had an Arduino (and ofcourse the Arduino HS3 plugin) in the utility closet to interface with my alarm system and automated gate. The final goal was to have everything combined in to 1 system, so using the GPIO of the RPI (running HS3) to replace the Arduino.

PebSeer Beta – Control HomeSeer from your wrist

As a Pebble and HomeSeer user, I’ve been busy writing an application which allows me to control my home automation system from my wrist. At the moment it is able to display a customizable (multi-screen) configuration, view status of devices, control devices and run events.

It’s been running for a couple of weeks on my Pebble Steel in combination with a Nexus 5. At the moment it is being beta tested by a couple of users from the HomeSeer forums. People interested in beta testing the application can send an email to pebseer @ this domain name. Do not forget to mention your platform (iOS/Android) and the number of devices in your HomeSeer configuration.
