Can I send the mount to 'home' position via a shell command?

Hi,

I have the issue that my mount (CEM60EC) doesn't park properly - it always goes to a position with the CWB horizontal :(
No big issue so far, I always only 'Goto Home' which is the park position I'd like.
But now I start experimenting with the scheduler, and would like to move to home position after the programs are finished. But there is only the 'park' option which .....
I see there is also a shell script option. Is it possible to send a command to INDI via a shell script and use that to have it go to home position?
(EKOS runs on my laptop, INDI on a remote computer at the mount).

Thanks!

Why do you always find the answer once you've posted a question?
#!/bin/bash
/usr/bin/indi_setprop -h 192.168.13.30 iEQ.HOME.IEQ_GOTO_HOME=On

does the trick :cheer:
(and the '#!/bin/bash' has to be there. Without, it works from command line, but not when called from EKOS)
