EventScripts triggers your scripts whenever monitored events occur. AppleScripts, Automator workflows, Perl scripts, shell scripts and applications can all be executed by EventScripts.
EventScripts can also remote control your Mac by triggering scripts using your Apple Remote control.
You can even run scripts from your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch using the companion application EventScripts Mobile.
EventScripts is also scriptable allowing you to use EventScripts to send Prowl and Pushover notifications to your iOS device.
EventScripts passes parameters to all the scripts that it executes that provide additional information about the event that triggered execution.
The events that EventScripts supports include:
Bluetooth device and iBeacon proximity; Apple Remote button presses; location changes; internet connectivity changes; application launches and quits; computer shutdown; file downloads; sleep and wake events; screen sleep, wake and locking; screensaver start and stop; time machine backup completion; bluetooth availability; wifi network name changes; iTunes track changes; Airplay availability; screenshot generation; volume mounting and ejection and many many more…
Our web site contains many useful example scripts for controlling Plex, Transmission and other popular applications as well as templates for writing your own AppleScript scripts.
Check out our website for full details.
EventScripts can now monitor Google Home and Chromecast devices. Trigger scripts when these devices are found, lost, or their activity changes. See our website for more details on these new events.
This version also fixes an issue that could cause EventScripts to hang after login on Big Sur while bluetooth monitoring was enabled. Special thanks to GT for reporting the issue and testing many versions to isolate the problem.
Ratings and Reviews
Powerful applescript triggering
I'm a mac automation freak, and Evenscripts helps complete my bag of tricks. Because it's geared solely towards running actions that are written in applescript (instead of pre-defined actions), it's at once more powerful and more advanced than other "Trigger + Action" apps. Other apps are capable of firing off applescripts, but not as flexibly as Eventscripts. Caveat: If you're not comfortable with applescript, you're not ready for this one.
Extras like the iphone app (fire scripts from your phone), bluetooth proximity detection (run script with device leaves area), apple remote support, active development, and responsive customer support make this app a real bargain right now.
If you're comfortable with AppleScripts, you'll love this. It took me a while to get into it; but, once I did, I found that the sky is the limit. My favorite is when it sleeps my Mac 30 seconds after I leave and turns it on 5 seconds after I get back (iPhone monitoring via Bluetooth). But it does much, much more: secripts when the screen sleeps and when it wakes up are great, for example. It's a great addition to your toolbox!
Zero customer support
For a paid product I'd expect at least some acknowledgment of my existence when reporting a bug, but that's not to be found here. And if you're thinking of buying this for taking actions based on switch between battery and plugged-in power, be aware that detection of these changes is very laggy and the developer has no interest in the problem.
