Are we able to control “HTTP get” devices in SmartThings yet? If so I have a project I would like some help with.
I would like to be able to control features of my home theater through smartthngs but I don’t understand how to create HTTP get commands. I have a Directv receiver and a surround system that can be controlled via HTTP commands. What I would like to do is have a virtual switch that will set certain scenes for watching TV.
For instance, one virtual tile (called “Movie”) would turn on the receiver (and the TV) set the input to Blu-ray and dim the lights. Another virtual tile (called “News”) would turn on the receiver, set the input to Directv, tune the Directv to the desired channel and mute the volume which automatically sets the CC to turn on. Preferably since my home is on a pretty set schedule; would be to have this happen at a specific time in the morning. Maybe have other tiles programmed to trigger at certain times for favorite TV shows.
Is anyone on here really good at this sort of code? Any thoughts?
