Setting up a schedule to start a car using onstar with smartthings

Is there a way to open other apps with smart things like onstar to start my car at a scheduled time after my garage door opens

I’m not sure but maybe with Tasker and SharpTools if you are on Android.

@Ballardc what mobile OS are you running? (eg Android, iOS)

I have a Samsung galaxy s5

You could set this up using Tasker + SharpTools + AutoInput, but I’m not sure I would recommend it. The risk of something bad happening if part of the system fails seems like it would outweigh the benefit. Eg. What happens if the system thinks the garage door has opened when it’s actually closed and the car starts up and starts filling the garage and house with fumes?
