Universal Devices ISY Insteon Driver
Does the isy allow for us to talk to it with the generic http driver, or something else that already exists?

5.0 is an entirely different branch where they are overhauling the whole setup to support making their device more of a application/server platform.

Recommend you stay with the 4.x branch, it is still being updated.

I should have been more clear. Is it possible for CQC to set a variable or run a program on the ISY?

There is a full V2 driver for the ISY. I don't think it has any functionality for ISY variables or programs though.

The v1 driver supports variables and running programs (just the Then part).

Variables are the only way I found to directly communicate a state from the ISY to CQC that isn't a device change. There may be other ways with some of the add-on modules (i.e. maybe the network module) but I haven't tried it.

So what are variables basically, just artificial values that the ISY itself defines? Are they all just strings or something? Are they arbitrary and something you'd get from the introspection type queries are are there a fixed set of them with given names?

The are two categories States and Ints. They are both signed 32-bit integers. The only difference is States trigger an event on the ISY when changed.

In the v1 driver I created fields for each one named State_<name> or Int_<name> of type Int4.

For programs I just had a field called RunProgram that listed all the program names. Selecting one would run the Then path (i.e. the IF of the ISY program is not processed).

They are dynamic though, defined by the user and figured out by querying a tree of data from the ISY?

Yes. They can be updated by the user or via programs. That will send an event when the value changes.

And like devices, variables can be created or deleted at any time in the ISY console manually. They can't be created or deleted by programs.

So you basically have to add them in the console manually, can set an initial name and value. Then you are free to reference them in ISY programs.

I'm very interested in the ISY driver and integration along with the Polyglot NodeServer system. This seems like an older thread and perhaps dead. Is there a newer thread?
