Hi,

Does anyone know if there's a way to make the ETH03 module initiate an HTTP call? 

I have a QNAP NAS with a CCTV system setup on it and currently 1 camera pointing at my front gates. My Comfort system has a wireless sensor on the gate and it currently triggers an SMS event and a voice announcement when the gate opens. The CCTV s/w on the NAS has the ability to trigger recordings based on virtual triggers that are initiated by making an HTTP request - e.g.:

http://192.168.1.123:8080/cgi-bin/logical_input.cgi?name=GateActivated

Since I have a UCM/ETH03, is there any way I can setup a Response to do that?

Thanks.

The UCM/ETH03 is not able to support an http request

Ok, thanks. I imagined that may be the outcome.

However, just in case anyone else has a similar requirement in the future... I've come up with a simple(ish) plan:

I will buy a cheap generic Wifi enabled Arduino-style device (e.g. NodeMCU or WeMOS D1) from eBay and set it up to monitor a Comfort Output pin.  When the output is triggered the little microcontroller will then initiate the HTTP call.

I'll need to use appropriate voltage dividers to step-down power supply and ensure the voltage on the Output pin is compatible with their input, etc.

And I'll need to find the time to ever get around to it :)

I think the RPi device should be able to do this, see http://www.comfortforums.com/forum136/

Try posting your question on that forum
