I found for nearly every device friends or I needed a "how-to" there was a python 'library' to do the 'hardcore' job. You can use this via LC and the "shell" function from several platforms.

You can especially use from all LC-Platforms a RaspberryPi (similar: Arduino) and its incredible hardware options as "connection point" to the home- or building automation.

For MIDI on Mac there is a very high quality external: SunnYmidi by Thierry D. ( ).
