Long story, I have a Soundbar which i’m trying to control with a Logitech Harmony Hub remote. Unfortunately, the Soundbar doesn’t have an IR command to jump to a specific input, it only allows you to ‘cycle’ through inputs which is unconducive for getting the Harmony Hub to get it to stop on the right input.
I’ve discovered through a bit of hacking that I can make the soundbar jump to the input I want by putting in specific URLs into a web browsers (HTTP GET Requests).
So my plan of attack is for the Harmony Hub to trigger a ‘Simulated Button’ in SmartThings. Then I want SmartThings to somehow issue the HTTP Get Request with a specific URL.
I’m very new to SmartThings and I have no idea how to go about this. Is this is a Smart App, a Device Handler, etc or what I need to do. I do have WebCore added if that would help. Please point me in the right direction.
