Posting it here since this is for device ideas…
It would be great if ST (or someone in the community) created apps for Mac and PC that would allow the computers to execute commands based on the trigger. On the Mac, associating AppleScript and Automator apps with the tool would work. On the PC, probably different command line actions (to launch batch scripts, etc). Allow for multiple commands to be executed or give the ability to pass a variable form the hub to the computer.
Example (and the one I’ve been trying to figure out) - allow ST to send a command to a computer to initiate iTunes (or another app) to play music over AirPlay speakers. In this case, an advanced option would be to pass a phrase to allow text-to-speech appellations, mimicking options for Sonos. I have airplay speakers in 3 rooms - total cost less than $400. For Sonos, the minimum cost would be $600 or more. So, in this example, we really need a less expensive alternative to Sonos.
On the Mac, HomeKit may offer some of this functionality…I’m just not sure.
I can see all sorts of other options for this app. Recently, someone asked for the ability to shutdown a computer via ST. That could easily be done. If Wake-On-LAN was part of the hub, it could also wake the computer up later. Good for saving power.
