However, I really would like to use it for controlling the KNX installation with Infrared commands. I know forum member Martin is successfully using Irtrans modules to send IR signals from EIB-PC, but I am not sure if he is able to do the reverse: send Infrared commands via the PC (or maybe even directly through the Irtrans-LAN module?), which then send TCP/IP commands over the LAN to the EIB-PC, which in turn uses these to activate KNX actors.
This way, an ordinary remote control could be used to switch KNX equipment.
The same approach of course could then be used with the folder watching feature of Eventghost, as Eventghost can send IR commands automatically through a infrared receiver/sender (such as, for instance, the USB-UIRT, see also www.usb-uirt.com) when new photos are detected in the watch folder. This allows using an ordinary (IP) camera as a trigger for switching on lights (for instance: outdoor camera is already there anyway. Now it can also be used as a trigger to activate the light at the front door when somebody approaches the house).
Eventghost seems to be a good solution for your purposes. Thanks for given us a pointer to it!
