This is a list of the currently supported interfaces. For a discussion of some of the modules and devices supported by these interfaces see the Supported Modules section.
Vera UI7 Protocol The new Vera UI7 interface protocol. This will support the new features of ZWave plus like Central Scene support. If you’re starting a new setup then just select the UI7 version in XTension and continue. If you’re converting an existing setup then please read the article carefully before converting as there is a specific work flow to do that. It is simple, but will save you a lot of manual unit editing later if you do it properly.
Vera from Vera Control Ltd, previously Micasa Vera. This is our choice for best ZWave interface.
1-wire temperature sensors are supported through the Barix device interface.
Additional 1-wire devices can be connected through an Arduino Interface interface if you dont mind a little code.
Do It Yourself Interface
Do It Yourself Simple method of rolling your own interface to non-supported devices.
Arduino a simple text protocol for connecting to arduino or other similar DIY style devices with a simple protocol and example code.
the JSON Interface interface handles either simple web requests to send data to a unit or the parsing of complicated JSON data structures to take whatever action is necessary. Just about anything that makes a web request via a simple form or via a JSON packet can be used to control units via this interface.
Any geofence app that has the ability to make an HTTP request when entering or exiting can be used with the JSON interface
An XTension user is also the developer of mGeofence which works great with XTension and the JSON server.
Locative is dead, long live Locative! While the cloud features are no longer available the app itself continues to be available and the cloud is not necessary for use with XTension. No need to switch if you have this working. We have a Locative tutorial
another method of setting up geofences with drop box and IFTT can be seen here
Geohopper is supported as of build 897 with enhancements to the JSON interface
Traffic or Parking Space Management
Rosim Wireless car sensor for traffic sensing or parking space monitoring.
Network Presence interface watches devices coming and going on your local network via the arp table and can also ping remote hosts on the internet.
Video Pitcher to “pitch” video from many IP cameras into XTension for display in Views and Web Remote pages. Also offering recording and video processing.
