Help with externalevent command

Unread post by yellowgreenpurple » Tue Jan 02, 2018 9:46 pm

I would like a snapshot to be taken by the surveillance station, when a button is pressed in domoticz.
Therefore I created an action rule, in Event tab, I selected:
Event source: External device
Event: External event 1.

the command needed is automatically generated:

Code: Select all"Trigger"&version=1&eventId=1&eventName="This is external event1"&account="{account}"&password="{password}"
I created a user in surveillance station with all rights and filled in username and password in command above. ({} were also removed).

I created a bash file with:

Code: Select all

curl -k"Trigger"&version=1&eventId=1&eventName="This is external event1"&account="xxx"&password="xxx"
If I run the bash file, I get:

Code: Select all

Any idea how to solve this?

Hi! I just had the same error but tried to enable and disable my ca,mera. I think this is because of using https. Try to add a non https port in the application portal and use something like this: ... ASSWORD%22

It worked for me
