    Default Getting Loxone to talk to my Washing Machine

    I have just got a Candy RapidO SimplyFi washer/Dryer. This can be controlled via an app on your phone or by Alexa. So have been investigating to see if Loxone can talk to it. At the moment I have got status of the machine, which is a good start. Here is what Loxone sees.

    Will add more once I have done more digging as regards commands etc.

    Decided to answer another forum's thread here as that forum is more for Home assistant rather than Loxone. I was asked how I got my Candy machine statuses into Loxone
    So here goes.
    You need to set up a Virtual HTTP Input.
    then in the URl field you type http://washing machine ip address/http-read.json?encrypted=0
    Then for the polling I have put 60 seconds
    with timeout set to 3999
    and permitted time outs set to 0
    Under the virtual http input you create a Virtual input Command.
    This example uses a VI command called Washing Machine Status
    now in command recognition type
    **"MachMd":"\v**
    You then connect this VI to a status block.
    Then set up AI1 V1 == Value 1 Status Text Not Yet Started
    repeat for as many values as you want. (this will make more sense when you have opened up the status block)
    2=Program Running
    3= Paused
    5= Delayed Start
    7= Finished
    If anyone is interested I might do a quick tutorial on it.
