Introducing Lua script for TellStick ZNet Lite

Using the Telldus Live! Events it is possible to create some really advanced scenarios. But sometimes this is not enough. To extend the possibilities further we are announcing Lua scripting support for TellStick ZNet Lite.

What us Lua?

Lua is a powerful, efficient, lightweight, embeddable scripting language. This means you can extend the functionality in TellStick ZNet Lite with your own code. Is can be as simple as turning a light on or off or maybe you want the adjust the reported value from a sensor? Maybe you want to use a wind sensor to calculate the real perceived temperature from a sensor? This can all be done with some simple Lua scripting.

How can I test it?

Currently we are working on documentation and examples for you. We need help with this. Please use the comments below and tell us what kind of script you would like to see. We will later open up the beta to everyone who wants to try once this is finished.

Telldus and iOS 10

It's that time of year again, we're listening to our favourite music whilst we're testing out iOS 10. We're pleased to say that Telldus Live! mobile works like a charm so we can focus on implementing new features.

We'd love to know what you think of the upcoming releases that Apple announced yesterday. Is there something you'd like us to implement? We'd like Apple watch and today widget support...we're working on that! Opening up Siri is great, but Apple decided to not support home automation commands outside of their homekit system. So we can't fix voice control for your home yet :(
