I have a wall-mounted iPad running Screendimmer and iRule. With Screendimmer, I can leave the iPad on all the time and let the screen go dark after a few minutes. Just a tap of the screen or home button turns the backlight on.

I also would like for the backlight to come on after receiving a command from an ISY-994 through the network. It could simulate a screen or home button tap when I open the door next to the iPad, for instance.

Does anybody know of a way to do this?
