I currently don’t have openHAB installed on my RPI3 yet but looking to use openhabian for that as it seems the simplest installation process.
I’ve been reading and searching for a few days about some functionality I desire but I’ve either not found the answer or openHAB simply can’t do it (yet).
First one is pushing playlists and media to Chromecast. I believe the current binding only allows for control once the Chromecast is in use. Is this still true? Is there anything in the “pipeline” to change this?
Secondly IP cameras, this does seem a hot topic and I believe current bindings allow for still images (jpeg) rather than live camera feeds? Is this is accurate or is there now a way to push the live feed from the cheap WiFi cameras that are flooding the market currently?
Third is a simple rule based query, within the rule maker can it be set for a device to turn on for a set time or would this need to be written in code? Whilst compared to your average man I’d like to think I’m fairly techy but have zero experience with coding so I’m hopeful for a solution that won’t require me to NEED to code
But for clarity coming home after 6pm Monday to Friday and pushing my playlist to Chromecast is surely an automation?
Similarly should a z wave motion sensor detect movement between the hours 9-5 in my home I’d like a notification and to able to view a live feed of this camera, again I don’t see this as too far fetched of a platform such as this?
Please note I have researched alot of what I want to do and I’m confident the system can do it 99%. I have researched these specific topics and I understand it is a current limitation, I’m merely checking my research is correct.
