Hi there,
There is a great opensource Home Automation System, called openHAB available. The problem of those systems is actually lack of nice looking GUIs for users.
iRidium could solve that problem if there would be a feature available, which could connect to OpenHAB server over ethernet.
Did anyone try this? What options are available?
Waiting for user's reply
We've tried it with help of OpenHAB REST API: https://github.com/openhab/openhab/wiki/REST-API

It work's nice!
Can you provide some examples, of how you did it?
I could send commands using GET request, but POST or PUT do not work.
Also interesting how you to get updates of item statuses.
Does iRidium support REST-API?I found also TCP/IP or UDP binding should also work.
You can use REST API in iRidium via AV & Custom Systems driver, but we don't have a ready solution yet. Please see the instructions on our wiki to know how to send commands to the side equipment:

It would be very cool to have this solution as example JS module
Please vote this topic, and it will be closer to realisation
Artyom, do you have any kind of working OpenHAB installation, so we can test?
You can download OpenHAB installation from http://www.openhab.org/getting-started/downloads.html and install it on any Windows-based PC. Then download Demo Setup from the same page - it will create demo Smart Home Items, which you can play with. REST API should be working in this configuration by default.
