I posted a similar query at the end of a thread I've been following, but I think this may be more appropriate in the Rule Machine category.
Anyway... I am considering a major "smart-lighting" upgrade to my home, and it includes a controller that can accept ASCII text commands via tcp/ip. Is the rule machine capable of generating these messages that would be transmitted over my local network? If yes, how would I go about learning how to accomplish this?
Primarily, I would want this to allow a sensor monitored by the HE hub to then trigger a change in lighting status. It can be done within the smart-lighting system I am looking at, but would require a rather expensive, hard-wired motion sensor, and the wireless sensors that work with HE are much cheaper and work rather well.
