Item Index

The NetHomeServer is built by separate modules called Items. A typical Item would be a lamp. A lamp Item has functions (presented as buttons in the WEB) for things like On, Off, Dim and so on. The Items also has configuration fields called attributes. A typical attribute is the name of the Item or the House Code and Device Code of the X10 switch which controls the lamp.

The Items are browsed, created and deleted via the WEB-GUI, and this is the way NetHomeServer is configured.

This is a list of some of the Items currently available for the NetHomeServer. All Items are not documented yet.
