When adding a button, you will be prompted to select an Amazon Dash button, a 'Virtual' button (used for testing and setup without having a Dash Button), or PushBullet trigger (used to issue voice commands with Amazon Echo or Google Home).
Once a button has been added to DashRunner you can now assign an action or series of actions to perform when pressed. To prevent the triggering of an action of the button is pressed repeatedly you can specify how long to ignore button presses after a press has been detected. (Translation, prevents little Johnny from mashing the button 50 times in a row and driving you crazy.)
When a button is added a sample action of 'Run a Program' is added. Clicking the 'Action Type' drop-down will allow you to select the type of action to perform.
Actions can have optional conditions in which they will execute or be ignored.
Use this to trigger one of many types of typical Hue lighting functions. Select the type of lighting to control (Light, Group or Scene) then click the ellipsis button to pick the specific light, group or scene. (Note on scenes: Scenes are stored with each light and not the bridge itself.)
For the action, select On, Off, Toggle or Set Color. If the Set Color action is selected, click the button to select the color and brightness to set. (This is also in need of more development.)
Clicking 'Test' will allow you to see what the action will do.
Enter the event name that you have connected with an IFTTT recipe (and up to three optional parameter values).
Controlling the thermostat has three options. Set 'away mode' on (leaving home), set 'away mode' off (at home) or setting a target temperature.
This action will allow you to turn the switch on, off or toggle the current state of any WeMo switch on your network.
Broadlink RM Pro
Once the RM Pro configuration is done (details here), just select the device and command you want to send. Add addional action steps for sequential command sending.
Once the Blue Iris configuration is done and verified select either "Set Profile", "Traffic Signal", "Trigger Camera" or "Set Schedule". Select the appropriate profile, camera or schedule from the list.
Click 'Test' to verify action.
Run a Program
This action will launch a Windows application. The options are pretty self explanatory and similar to Windows shortcuts. The possibilities for using this are many (ex. launching a music application to start playing, etc.)
If a series of actions is being performed, use this to create a pause between actions. (Ex. Turn the bedroom lights on, pause for 2 minutes, then turn the living room lights off.)
