Can something like this be done with Hal?
« on: April 27, 2011, 01:30:04 pm »
Not that I'm a strong enough programmer, but,..

Can HAL be used to control and report on third party apps like HomeSeer (as seen in another post) or MisterHouse?
What about an arduino?
Can the commands be hardwired or would they have to be learned?

I am not familiar with those programs much but I can say if the program in question is open sourced and it can be called from the computer registry as a COM then yes, you could get HAL to automate a process.

I use a program called PE Explore to look in side .dll files and stuff for command calls and properties of files, you can look inside your program regedit, go to run: RegEdit, look in the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT area and see if there is a COM for the program that it can be called from for example; HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MicroScanner.MicroScanner

Code: [Select]
where we can use this COM to do this:
Set MicroProcess = CreateObject("MicroScanner.MicroScanner", "Sub")

if you want you can download PE Explorer here:
