Door Left Open http alerts?


I am trying to make it so that I can have an http call made when a door has been left open for a certain amount of time.

My kiddo tends to leave the fridge door open for too long sometimes so I am trying to add some smarts to the setup.

I saw that “Something Left Open” supports Pushover Notifications, but I want to be able to make a call to an http server.

Also, from what I can tell, Something Left Open only fires once, but what would be nice is if it supported a call every x seconds/minutes if someone has not closed the door involved.



Webcore will be the easiest way to do this.

Here is a webCoRE piston I use to send an SMS reminder about an open gate… it fires every 10 minutes and includes a running timer stating how long the gate has been open.

The SMS can easily be changed to an HTTP GET/POST request to whatever service you wish.


Thanks Robin!
