Expand your macros functionality
« on: May 24, 2007, 10:45:24 AM »

Expand your macros functionality! ???
X10dispatch found a little utility called AutoHotKey he posted a short write up here
It really can be used with any homeautomation software that has the capabilities to launch an executable.
AHP uses the windows command option found in the macros options to do this. ;)
This little program may end up being a great work around tool for some! ;)
The best thing about this little program is you don't have to know anything about writing scripts it does it all for you ;) :D ;D

Been playing with this little sript writer lately!
Just Awesome I can do almost any thing now remotely with the PC via the Phone (AlertDialer) or voice (BXVC or BVC) or even a X10 remote and AHP!  ;) :D ;D
Can't get AHP to use your USB Cam or capture card hey this will do it! ;)
Since AlertDialer only sends one command per dial in or out you could create a script to do multiple things like turn Activehome Pro ,BVC and X10dispatcher on, send email, then trigger a virus scan, start you downloading program to get that song you've been trying to get and etc, etc...... you get the picture! ;) :D ;D

I somehow missed this post before, Tuicemen. This does appear to be an intersting find.

Tuicemen: This little program ROCKS!

I finally got a Round Tuit and tried it out.
Since I don't use a VA11A, and therefore cannot use iWitness, this program allows me to save a snapshot from any camera via the internet and X10Dispatcher.

One observation: even though the "*.ahk" program can be executed directly from the pc by doulde clicking, I did have to place it inside a "*.bat" file for AHP to execute it.

Very Helpful Post & Program!

Hey thanks Puck!
The best part about this program is it's  free. The second is you don't write the script(it does it)!
I knew you for one would find it helpful  ;) I'm sure once others get Round Tuit   they'll find many other possible uses for it! ;)
I only hope they share their ideas  ;)  ::)
