Com Debugging


Recommended Posts


Not sure this the correct section for this post, but when it works I intend for I to be AJAX based


I have followed the instructions here http://cocoontech.com/portal/articles/tutorials/home-automation/16-how-to-interface-homeseer-with-php


But I get the error fatal error Call to undefined method com::DeviceStatus()


I am running a vista machine and apache PHP are configured ok.


How do I start error trapping.


I know the object is ok, as I can use it in visual studio, how does PHP know were this object is.


sorry if this basic or wrong I am pretty stuck and unsure whee to begin, so thanks for any help.

I assume you saw the note on step 4? (link added)

make sure you change Homeseer.Application to whatever the object is named in your DCOM configuration screen, usually the other name is Homeseer.ClsString

Without going into details I don't know, COM objects are all registered in Windows. PHP itself doesn't have to know where the actual object DLL is.


Are you sure the method is called "DeviceStatus" and not "devicestatus" like I see in the article?

Hi this is it


<!DOCTYPE html>



<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">






// $hs = new COM("Homeseer.Application");

$hs = new COM("homeseer.clsString");

// $hs->ExecX10("a1","off","0","0");


echo $status;
