Is it possible to send (push) events to SmartThings?

I have a temperature sensor what can send temperature to a URL on a schedule. Is it possible to push this temperature to SmartThings to avoid polling?

Yes.

Just create a “Web Services SmartApp”… One simple home system. A world of possibilities. | SmartThings

Ummm… most of the same concepts in that link apply to “Web Services Device Types” (i.e., I believe that Device Type Handlers can also expose endpoints with a unique access_token that you can push JSON or XML data to).

Thank you, looks promising.
