ALARMED Commands List
The purpose of this article is to collect a list of Alarmed codes for beginners to use. The idea came from a talk.maemo org thread which contained the instructions for setting up an Internet radio alarm clock
They should be put in the following format:
Which should be all the information we need.
 List of Phone Control commands
A comprehensive list of commands for Phone Control that work as commands from Alarmed can be found in the phone control article.
 Radio1 Alarm Clock
This code will make your phone startup the N900 stock media player and connect to Radio 1 (UK station) using your wi-fi (wi-fi is recommended for connection to be made). It is a good idea to set up a regular alarm clock for 5 mins after just in case there is an internet connection error ... wouldn't want you to be late for work.

 Internet Radio Alarm Clock using KMPlayer
If you have KMPlayer installed, you may find it less prone to halting from buffering issues than the stock Media Player. Add this as a Command Execution string in Alarmed to play an internet radio stream's URL (in this case, the stream for WCLV):
 Set Speaker Volume
You may want to set the speaker volume to a certain level before starting an internet radio station. 50 in the command below sets the volume level to 50%, replace 50 with whatever % volume is desired (0 - 99).
dbus-send --type=method_call --dest=com.nokia.mafw.renderer.Mafw-Gst-Renderer-Plugin.gstrenderer /com/nokia/mafw/renderer/gstrenderer com.nokia.mafw.extension.set_extension_property string:volume variant:uint32:50
 Play a sound file
This uses the play-sound command to play a sound file.
Important note: play-sound always plays a sound file at full volume, regardless of the volume set by command or by use of the volume rocker. Therefore it is essential when calling a file with play-sound to be sure the file is recorded at the volume that is desired for playback. Typical sound files will be at the level of 0 or -3 dB attenuation, which can blow speakers at full volume. If you call a sound file with play-sound, it's best to make a new copy of the file at much lower volume using sound editing software such as GoldWave (or audacity on Linux+Mac+Windows, or 'sox' on the command line for any of those systems with "-v <ratio>" option)
