I change the port in InControl and in the node config file and that worked like a charm. I started the server via node and the page loaded in the browser with devices. JOY! Now I just need to read up on Jade.
I don't know if you read my original post in detail to Jim about having cases with multiple buildings and floors. As in my case my home has 3 floors up, main, and basement. Any thoughts on adding multiple layouts for a building. Also our family has a lake house and would like to be able to monitor it as well from same web page.
For now I will just work on a 1st release that will enable a user to add devices to a floor layout via drag and drop from the list of devices for different rooms and a main layout.
Thanks for the help in getting me started.
Cool, glad it's up and going.
I'll tweak the InControl DB to take into account the multi-floor layout and push out some new code for it.
For your cabin... are you saying instead of going to http://myhouse.net
, you'd like to go to just one site and see devices from both locations? Hmm... that'll require two outbound connections... will have to ponder how to get there with the architecture that's there currently.
Re: Jade. This project is the first time I've seen Express or Jade in action. It hasn't been too hard to get up to speed on it... just be careful of spacing when it comes to Jade. The existing layout files use tabs for indentation and Jade won't let us mix tabs + spaces, so be aware of that.
