Interacting with a Controller (e.g. Arduino/Raspberry Pi)

Houdini MC allows you to send are receive instructions to and from micro-controllers using GET or POST requests (hereafter we will refer to these requests as webrequests) Preliminaries: Assume a Raspberry Pi, and Arduino based mechanism of a smart prop or even your mobile phone. These devices can interact with Houdini MC mainly using webrequests. When the Raspberry […]

Connecting Physical Push Buttons With Houdini MC

Connecting a push button with Houdini MC was never easier. You will need only a Raspberry Pi and a push button. To start with, execute Houdini MC and go to “Settings->Connections” tab. Enable the “Incoming HTTP Requests” and note down the given URL. Please make sure that your router always assign Houdini’s PC the same IPv4 address. From […]

Re-initialize the in-room props

After competing the game, it is important to re-initialize all the in-room smart mechanisms. Houdini MC offers you an easy to implement solution to re-initialize all the mechanisms by pressing a simple click. To start with, on each device, assign a webrequest to reset its parameters.If you are not familiar with webrequests kindly refer to this tutorial. In […]

Connecting Arduino with Houdini MC

Connecting Arduino devices with Houdini MC was never easier. Houdini MC interacts with Arduino and Arduino like devices using GET requests. To start with, go on “Scheduled Events” and select “Add Event” Select “Incoming Event from Smart Mechanism” Use a “Custom_Term” and write down the entire URL (e.g. http://192.168.178.104:14999/Custom_Term) Select action (e.g. play a sound, trigger […]
