  • Integrate fusion brain commands into road runner buttons

    I don't really want to integrate an entire fusion brain skin into road runner. I just want to integrate some of the fusion brain buttons into the road runner skin file I already use. For instance I'm going to take the road runner button that currently says phone and rename it to "Garage." Then I'd like the road runner button "Garage" to activate the fusion brain button that triggers the relay that the garage door opener is hooked up to.

    Another thing I'd like to do is integrate the inside and outside temp onto the main menu of my road runner skin.

    Is something like this doable without using the entire fusion brain skin?

    Not currently.

    Since last October or November, I have been trying to get a COM object working for it to be possible. Its March now and it is still not working. I am working on it though.

    I pretty much have RoadRunner working for COM in XP and Vista. StreetDeck doesnt work though. And with RoadRunner there are some issues. When it is released, MDX will need to run in the system tray to interpret the COM commands.

      That's good enough for me. I'll be looking forward to this feature until then .

        does the MDX beta allow the COM object or will that have to wait til final release?

          The COM object is not in any of the available software now. When it works, it will go in MDX, and it will just require a new EXE and a dll to be downloaded.

            how far along?

            just wondering how far along the com object is?
            is it partially working or not at all?

                Scotty how are you doing the garage door opener? I wanted to do this myself. Just a simple relay? Could you post a quick how to? Thanks...

                  Yeah. It's a simple relay. A really friggin cool relay .
                  1. Tear garage door opener apart
                  2. Find the two metal pieces you need to short to make the garge door open
                  3. Solder really small wires too each one of these and then touch the tips of the wires together and make sure they open the garage door
                  4. Hook these two wires up to a relay
                  5. Program the brain to trigger the relay
                  6. Life is good

                  I'll actually use this once I can make a road runner button do this. Just a matter of time till that function is ready.

                    RRFusion is an working option to get fusion brain digital out controls into rr commands. Search for it.

                      Can I use my existing skin with this? I just want to rename one of my rr buttons and have it execute the code that opens my garage door. An example or something would be nice. I'll look through your thread when I get off work.

                        yes you can use whatever skin you would like.. you would just need to modify commands on the skin. So you install RRFusion. And lets say open is port 0 on your FB and close is port 1, simply assign two buttons commands. First button is DIGITALOUT0TOGGLE and second button is DIGITALOUT1TOGGLE. Real easy

                            it was needed.. i will be expanding in the future as well. I'll implement timed events on the digital output commands soon. So you could put DIGITALOUT0ON;10 as a command. Using that command, the output would toggle ON for 10 seconds then turn itself off. a little logic never hurt nobody

                              would it have to be two diffrent buttons in rr? how would u use two relays then? wouldnt it be just one button and one relay and the same command, "garage" for instance would do both open and close the gargage because the relay would only have to work for a second or so?? just like the restart button on carpc's. sorry i probably worded that horribly. i dont know how else to say it? hope u understand what i mean
