Looking for ways to extend Indigo to support additional hardware or new functionality?
Want to integrate your home automation with other software (iTunes, iCal, Security Spy, etc.)?
Need to see some example Indigo AppleScripts to help you get started?
Below are some great user contributions for integrating Indigo
home automation with different devices and software. Additionally, some of these are excellent
tutorials-by-example, so fire up your Script Editor application (inside your Applications/AppleScript/
folder) or other editor and see how they work. If you write a script, application, or plug-in that might be useful for others,
then please submit it.

of any scripts on this page. We have personally used quite a few of these scripts, but
be careful and use common sense when installing and using any software or scripts.
Ocelot to Indigo
||This set of scripts from Martijn Heeroma provide basic Ocelot support from Indigo. Once installed you can use the Ocelot for sending IR and X10 commands and you can read Ocelot's sensor inputs.
||After downloading, drag the Ocelot to Indigo folder into:
/Library/Application Support/Perceptive Automation/Serial Bridge/
Next, double-click the Serial Bridge connection settings.sbDb file inside that folder. Lastly, to install the Action Groups inside Indigo for sending commands to the Ocelot, run the AppleScript Install into Indigo.scpt.
||Once installed, you will have several Ocelot Action Groups defined inside your Indigo database file. You can execute these to send commands to the Ocelot. Additionally, several Indigo Variables will be defined that contain the arguments for commands to be sent to the Ocelot as well as return data from the Ocelot.
