Android buttons as shortcuts to control almost everything
Application March 10, 2022
Did you know that a simple APP allows you to create buttons for Android smartphones or tablets with which you can open gates, turn on lights or manage any other electrical device connected to an Avior?
Activation is immediate, no numbers to dial and no waiting for call forwarding typical of GSM remote controls and you don't even need a cellular connection, you just need WiFi.
For each Avior you can set up to 1000 users, each recognized by the unique identifier of the smartphone and at any time you can activate or deactivate a user, then deactivate a phone if it is stolen or add a new user without having to buy expensive remote controls.
You can also define a specific period or days and times to guarantee temporary access, for example to a cleaning company.
And again you could define a maximum number of actions to be decremented, could be a machine that provides a paid service (distribution of water, milk, laundry ...).
First of all we download and install the APP ...
... and run it.
Let's add a simple rule that for each message received from a user's APP the text received will be executed as a command.
Here is a short video on how to insert rules from the cloud management platform.
Based on the rule we have set, the control is reserved for users stored in the device, so let's add one or more users (up to 1000). At any time we can add, remove or modify a user.
Here we have defined the user John.Doe (we will have to use the point as a possible separator because space is not allowed) by choosing APPID as type and entering the Application ID that we detected during the installation of the APP, it is 10 alphanumeric characters.
We can assign a membership group (in this case employees).
This user can be enabled for a specific period, in the example January 1, 2001 to December 31, 2099, which is like saying permanently enabled (these are the default settings).
If we wish to disable the actions of this user on some days of the week we will replace Y with N.
Finally we can define a maximum number of operations that will be automatically scaled at each command sent as if they were access "tickets".
All the details for the user settings are described here: https://www.contrive.mobi/avior/en/USERS.html
In our example we have imagined that the button should open a gate.
