So I can't open up an http endpoint, BUT I have a solution. I suggest you deploy the server using NGROK. It gives you access to a global, https endpoint that will work with our service: https://ngrok.com/. If you have any questions on how to use it, please feel free to reach out.
@drak41 Your lights will definitely be able to turn on when you walk into a room. For turning lights off, you can set situations in which the Lighting use case won't run (Time periods, ranges, presence of other people). So for the going to sleep situation, you could possibly have Dot turn off lights in a room after a certain point in time. Our plan is to give you as many options as possible to allow you to customize it to your specific life/contexts.
@rishabh_iota Nice! Thanks for the links. That was an interesting experiment. What I'm envisioning is this:
Install 3 or more Dots in fixed permanent locations within the home, preferably evenly spaces around the perimeter of the home and on different levels. Then have a learning mode in the app that allows you to define a room and walk the perimeter of the room several times so that the app cal learn the boundaries while watching the dots. Do this for each room/area to allow the app to build a logical map of the space(s). What he was doing was looking for an exact position within a room. I'm only interested in knowing what area i'm in with a high level of certainty. His experiment clearly shows the issues that I encountered with using iBeacons for this purpose.
Looks like your connection to Dot Community was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
