OneRemote is a customizable menu app for Android. Its purpose is to provide uniform setup and control of many types of devices.

In OneRemote, you can create a colorful tree structure of items (buttons) in much the same way that you might set up a tree structure of folders on a computer. You can name them and arrange them as you like. You can add photos to the buttons.

Item Types

Categories

These are containers for other items.

Each Category can contain one or more of:

Sub-Categories These are second level and beyond. They are just containers for adding other types of items, including categories. Others include:

Devices

Reserved for future

Links

Used to open web pages or any valid URL.

Switches

Lights are currently implemented as Links but will be moved to a new item called Switches. They can be used with the JRiver Engen server to control Z-Wave devices like switches and outlets. To emulate a switch, this link allows two URL's (for on and off)

Sample URL's:

On http://localhost:52110/alpha000/basic_set?node=2,value=100 (turns on node 2)

Off http://localhost:52110/alpha000/basic_set?node=2,value=0 (turns off node 2)

Use the web page option to list your nodes. The terminal window has a help() feature.
