I originally created a NHL Game Notification app for my wife so I could send notifications for her favorite NHL team (go Pens!) as well as flashing lights and play the goal horn over a wireless speaker. Once I shared it, there was also interest for other sports as well - so I created a Sports Notification app to start to address these requests.
Below is a link to the “Sports Notifications” app - this is a Parent/Child combination of applications. The Sport Notifications app is the Parent which will manage the installation, scheduling and execution of each sport child service app. The ‘NHL Notification Service’ is the first offering of child notification service apps (NHL only right now, there will be more to come). I’ve also created a simple “virtual switch” devicetype that allows the Sports Notification app to automatically generate a virtual switch which can be used to enable/disable each child Notification service “on the fly”.
The following link has the installation instructions - don’t forget to install all three components: Sports Notifications (parent), NHL Notifications Service (child) and Sports Notification Switch (device).
I have installed both the apps - sports notification PARENT app and NHL notifier.
I did PUBLISH the parent app - but NOT the NHL child app - as in most cases this is the practice, but if I am wrong please advise.
I set up the NHL notification from within the Parent app (Sports notifications).
I did not see an option for any other sport such as football or MLB etc as I expected …but not other child apps for each sports type either… so I am not clear on the process and ability to pull in other sports.
Thanks. MLB would be great also and the season is upon us. Fantasy football is a little tricky and there is constant scoring changes and various services. (Yahoo, ESPN and CBS are the top 3). My advice is scoring alerts should be for “big plays” that are customizable for both you and your opponent. Let’s say I wanted to be alerted for any 5 point change.
@ejluttmann This is awesome, I haven’t ben able to use it yet but this is exactly what I was trying to build just for NHL but ran into parsing issues with the service (I dabble in Smartthings development). Can you sort the team names alphabetically?
I was wondering if you could add the ability of possibly playing the actual goal song for your team. I began storing the goal songs in AWS with a URL based on your team selection in settings. I was trying to mimic the Budweiser Redlight via Smartthings.
I can help build the audio files for the goal siren/songs if your interested just pm me. Great work, I can’t wait to try it out.
Not sure if the device handler can show a different device image based on the team you select or not. I changed the device handler to have an image of my team in color when On and Black/white when Off.
