Initial Setup

Adding Buttons / Voice Commands (PushBullet Triggers)
Adding buttons is very simple.  Click the 'Add Button' option on the main screen and follow the prompts.  (Note: If you have other Amazon devices, it may be best to turn them off prior to scanning for new buttons.  They will show up as an Amazon device and may get mistaken for a Dash button.) 

 

IFTTT Maker Channel Configuration
Configuring DashRunner for use with IFTTT is very simple.  After getting your Maker Channel key (see here) simply enter it on the configuration screen.  Enter an event name (anything will do for testing) and optionally up to three parameters, click 'Test' and you should get a response from the IFTTT web service.

 

Nest Thermostat Configuration

Before controlling a Nest thermostat you need to authorize DashRunner to be able to set the away mode on and off as well as setting the temperature.  On the Nest Thermostat tab, click 'Connect to Nest Thermostat'.  Instructions will be shown but basically authenticate via the Workds with Nest web page that will be presented.  After clicking 'Accept' on the page you will be given a PIN code.  Copy and paste the code in the field that will show up on the DashRunner screen and click the 'Click Here to Activate' button.  You should now see the thermostat status on the page. 

 

Hue Lighting Configuration
Configuring DashRunner for use with Philips Hue lighting is simple and similar to other applications that utilize hue.
To find the IP address of the Hue bridge, click the the ellipsis button to the right of the Bridge IP Address field.  This will scan your network for the bridge.  Once it has been located, the bridge will need to authenticate and issue an API key.  Just push the button on the top of the bridge, then click the 'Connect to Bridge' button in DashRunner.  As long as there is not an extensive delay between pushing the bridge button and clicking the 'Connect' button, the bridge should be authenticated and show the lights and groups on your Hue system.

 

WeMo Switch Configuration
Configuring DashRunner for use with a WeMo switch is very simple.  To find the IP address of the switch, click the the ellipsis button to the right of the WeMo Switch IP Address field.  This will scan your network for the switch.  Once it has been located, the switch will be toggled to verify it was correctly located.

 

Blue Iris Configuration

Configuring DashRunner for use with a Blue Iris requires Blue Iris to have the web server enabled as well as having proper credentials that enable controlling profiles and/or cameras.  Click the 'Blue Iris Setup' tab.  Enter the IP address and port for the web server from your Blue Iris configuration.  Enter the user name and password and click 'Test' to verify the connection and authentication.  A list of profiles and cameras should now show.

 

Broadlink RM Pro Configuration
Detailed instructions on setup prior to DashRunner configuration as well as configuration in DashRunner are here

 

General Configuration

Select any options such as launching with Windows, automatically starting processing after program launches, etc.

 

Enter PushBullet API key to enable triggering commands via PushBullet triggers (voice commands.)
