Command Setup

<< Back to Adding a Command On to Adding an Activity >> On the Command Setup page you can modify information about a command or re-capture a control signal for a command that is not working properly.

Name

The Name section contains basic identification information for the command: its name and description. This information is visible in many different parts of the RedEye application, including the main Commands screen. You can edit either value by tapping on the appropriate row and entering a new value using the onscreen keyboard.

Details

The Details section provides information about the command type. This information is fixed once the command has been created. If you must change this information, you can delete the command and then recreate it from the Device Setup screen.

Command Icon

Command Icon shows the icon currently assigned to the command. Tap on this row to choose an icon from the list available options. If none of the icons seems appropriate, you can choose Text Only to display the name of the command instead of an icon.

Edit Script

Note: This section does not apply to infrared commands, and does not appear when adding an infrared command. Tap on the Edit script row to edit the script for your command. For entering all but the simplest of scripts, we recommend using RedEye’s browser application. Typing on a PC is not only easier than on an iOS device, but the browser application also provides context-sensitive help, commonly used system functions and variables, syntax checking, and some debugging tools.

Deleting a toggle valueToggle Values

Note: This section only applies to infrared commands, and does not appear for commands added to devices that use other communication methods. The Toggle Values section shows a list of values through which the device cycles when a Toggles:Yes command is sent. This section does not appear if Toggles is No. Tap on a toggle value to edit, or tap on Add New Toggle Value to create one. When you create a new toggle value, you need to specify at least a name. The name and icon are visible when you use toggle buttons in your activities. To change the list of toggle values, tap on the Edit button at the bottom of the screen. To delete a toggle value, tap on the red circle to the left of the row you wish to delete. Then tap on the Delete button to delete, or tap somewhere else on the screen to cancel. To reorder toggle values, drag the toggle value rows into the desired arrangement. When you are finished deleting and reordering, make sure you tap the Done button to save your changes.

Copy Command URL

Tapping the Copy Command URL button will copy a text version of a specific command URL to your clipboard. You can then paste the command in a web browser to launch the command from a computer. You could also control the RedEye hardware from another application or platform by using the URL with HTTP GET. This feature was added to accommodate our customers experimenting with home automation applications.

Capture New Control Signal

Note: This section only applies to infrared commands, and does not appear for commands added to devices that use other communication methods. You can recapture and test control signals using the Capture New Control Signal button. You can read more about capturing control signals on the Adding a Command page.

Test Control Signal/Test Script

You can try out the control signal (or script) for a specific command using the Test Control Signal/Test Script button. This will allow you to identify whether or not your changes to the command are working.

Delete Command

The Delete Command button removes the command from RedEye system. This action cannot be undone. << Back to Adding a Command On to Adding an Activity >>
