Controlling relays using the Pebble watch (Pebble Tasker): https://youtu.be/G7IJbEL0u6c (still figuring out how to embed videos)
In this case, the ‘connect’ task simply does the following:
- unlock phone (turn on display)
- launch 1sheeld
- delay for 1 second
- simulate touch input on the ‘scan’ button
- delay for 1 second
- simulate ‘home’ button (go back to home screen)
- lock phone (turn off display)
Until it is possible for the 1sheeld tasker plugin to ‘connect’, I have to use this workaround to make it work.
Also, ‘disconnect’ sets all pins to LOW and kills the 1sheeld app.July 27, 2015 at 1:16 AM #8888AhmkelParticipant
Nice ! I guess this way solves the connection problem “for now”,, I had a concern about embedding 1sheeld in real projects, and leaving it in the final version, but I guess now my concerns are solved 😀
For your project, it is actually great (Y) Could you please write down you steps here, or better submit it on hackster or instructables and put the link here ?July 27, 2015 at 1:20 AM #8889
I will try to find the time to do that, but I do hope that the tasker plugin can be improved to ‘connect’ or ‘disconnect’ better in the future..
Anyway, here’s what I have done so far: https://instagram.com/p/5l8jhnuMtH/July 27, 2015 at 12:12 PM #8891
That was really awesome …! actually it’s the first project i saw using a smartwatch & 1Sheeld 🙂 . But for the connection issue you do have a point for your project actually it was in our mind but we just waited to see if anybody gonna use this feature at all.. and here you come 😉 ! so we listed it again in the requests and we will do our best to implement it as soon as possible and i will send you once we start implementing it and once we finish 😉 .
Great Job Ptewee we can’t wait to see the final project working 😀 and as Ahmkel said if you do have any steps or videos please share it with us in our projects section on Hackster.io 😉 .July 27, 2015 at 12:27 PM #8893AhmkelParticipant
Nice video, I like that it works and switched the lights on/off without lagging,, could you upload a picture of the setup from inside the car itself ?July 27, 2015 at 12:37 PM #8895
Eslam, thank you for noticing. I do hope that now you understand my point of view to connect to 1sheeld via tasker (from the other forum thread)
Ahmkel, I’ve yet to mount it properly into the car, but the test bed was like this:
As you can probably guess it, I tapped a wire into the common light switch connector (had to find the correct pin) and connected the other end to a grounding screw.July 29, 2015 at 11:15 AM #8903
I understood your point of view and we will do our best to get you this feature as soon as possible 😀 .
Great Job by the way and it will be our great pleasure if you can share us your experience of your project 🙂 .July 29, 2015 at 11:19 AM #8905
I will try to make time to get that done!July 30, 2015 at 10:20 AM #8911
Big THANKS Ptewee for your efforts 😀 .August 12, 2015 at 9:17 PM #9034thomasorrParticipant
I also second this feature. I really need to have my android device either auto connect to the sheeld when in range or have a tasker script that can try to connect if its in range without having to open the app.
Do you have an idea on timescale to be able to add this feature?
Thanks!August 19, 2015 at 6:36 PM #9153
Actually it’s in our plans but am afraid to say that still we didn’t give it a timescale but can you please tell me what’s your project idea about using this feature ?
Thanks,August 20, 2015 at 1:48 AM #9156
Update: I’ve successfully implemented the setup into my car: https://instagram.com/p/6lXbwcuMrn/August 20, 2015 at 10:59 AM #9158
That’s Awesome …!!!! really amazed 🙂 , can you also add the feature of “Start Engine” to be controlled over the pebble watch ?!!
way to go 🙂 and please share us your experience on our projects section and don’t hesitate to enter the contest your idea is Booming and it may win one of the great prices 😉 .
Thanks for sharing the video can’t wait to see the whole project 😉 .August 20, 2015 at 11:01 AM #9161
Eslam, remote engine start is a popular request from each and every one of my commenters! But there are security concerns about bypassing the security system and immobilizer, so that’s going to be a big project…
This should be the final implementation and I will make time to document it and enter the contest 🙂August 20, 2015 at 11:24 AM #9162
Yeah security issues will make it tough .. i don’t have that much background about how start engine works but i will give it a chance and read about the functionality because i really think it will add weight to your project 😉 . if you can provide me links about “how Start engine works” i will be so grateful 😀 .
