How to use the small example
Within the latest library package (only the Windows version) we have included a small program which can be used as example on how to work with the library or as a data sharing gateway between your system and our database. The binary is called libhomeradar.exe and can handle up to 5 input sources, enable and disable local webserver and can send your contacts to the public collector at collector.libhomeradar.org on port 8080
After you have started the program you should see in your Windows taskbar a small earth icon.
The share contacts option is a ON/OFF switch. After you are connected to a server, you can enable or disable this option. Before you start the webserver you can change the port for the server. After the webserver is started you cannot change the port!
Webserver will display contacts on Google Maps
