    Default Anyone here got a Joggler ?

    The 02 Jogglers were on offer at 50 a few weeks ago... bargain .. actually I think they're a bargain even at 100 RRP. Anyone here buy one ?

    http://shop.o2.co.uk/joggler

    I ask because I have a xAP application (Flash) running on the Joggler which provides a touchscreen grid of control buttons and can also display messages, CallerID, sensor data etc. These can directly link to Cortex control via xAP.

    At the moment it's pretty specific to my own system - (anyone will be welcome to the code however you will require Adobe Flash to modify it for your use ). I'm investigating how easy it would be to make this more generally useful / configurable but as a Flash novice it'll likely take me a while yet... I also need to hone my graphics skills a little , and then I'll post some screenshots.

    ... but here you go... so far .. lots to do - different icons - fonts - tabbed interface etc...but the xAP interaction works really well, near instant response from C-Bus, Idratek, HomeEasy, Plugwise etc

    Shamed to admit I do have a joggler which I got out of the box, fired up, connected used for a couple of days and put away for the moment whilst I think what I am going to do with it...

    Integration with Xap/Cortex sounds interesting, especially the caller display function.. but I don't have Adobe Flash and the cost looks a bit prohibitive!

    It's the usual problem unfortunately that making an application that works for everyone takes ten times as long as one that works for just yourself, especially if it involves subjective area like graphics. Time is the enemy here, so I'm not just sure how I'll approach this. Hopefully I can include a device editor to add your own xAP endpoints against the buttons - and hence directly control the matching Cortex device. Just got to sort out interaction with the Joggler's onscreen keypad. Failing that a config file that you edit on a PC might suffice.

    The Caller ID is actually implemented using any xAP CallerID device/application rather than from the inbuilt feature in Cortex, mainly because I couldn't add the required modem card to my PC plus I couldn't see a way to get xAP in or out of the existing object anyway. I use the Crucible Meteor with a little attached box that converts it to Ethernet (xAP) but there is a free PC application too. I should add that's it's perfectly possible to push a photo of the caller to a Joggler too when the phone rings which is the sort of thing that helps the WAF.

    I'll keep you posted , and obviously anything that avoids you needing Flash is beneficial.

    I'm not sure this is quite the place to post this but seeing as we're talking about O2 Joggler...

    Here are some relevant links I've come across:



    We could probably do with pulling together an article on how to customise the Joggler for HA usage. Of course different people will have different needs, but at the least I think we all will want a browser (which I don't think the O2 stock firmware has). Personally I'd also like to find a way of wall mounting it to so that it's readily available for controlling the heating etc.

    Sure, but at the moment my Joggler hasn't yet arrived and I don't have any HA

    CH/DHW automation is on its way this summer though... once I can decide on an HA standard/product set

    The spat between Adobe and Apple has at least thrown up this bit of useful information:- Free Tools for Flash Authoring

    Not that I have a Joggler

    ... must resist AH bargains ... recite mantra ... 1..2..3..iPad ...
