Monitoring or Receiving Events from Motion Sensors
« on: July 12, 2005, 06:43:24 PM »

I'm trying to write a Java app to log and
respond to motion sensors being triggered and
it doesn't look possible to me. Does anyone
know a way to do this, either with the SDK or
otherwise?

Do any of the available X10 motion sensors
have set addresses so that they can be
monitored via the SDK and the USB base unit?

The motion sensors can be programmed to any
desired address.

It would be just like monitoring any regular
X10 address such as an X10 switch, etc. I
use the CM11A to monitor all my motion
detectors all programmed for address A1 to
A3. The CM11A polls the PC when a
transmission occurs on the mains, I decode
it and tag it with a custom description
(string), thats it. The CM15A can do it too,
but using the SDK and hopefully someone else
can fill you in on the details, but YES IT
CAN BE DONE!
