I have a Door Bird system for my house. I can set it up to make http(s) calls on a motion event, door bell button press, code entry, or RFID card used.
I have an integration via IFTTT (Webmaker) and it’s working.
However, I would prefer to switch the device directly trigger my ST HUB.
My HUB is already registered on my local DNS.
Is there a really simple way to configure the HUB so that e.g. a simulated switch is turned on when it receives a direct HTTP request? In IFTTT it’s simple enough
To my knowledge, not at present. An Edge driver might be the perfect solution to this, and could make it really simple to do what you want to do, but unfortunately there is a restriction with the current Edge beta where specific port numbers can’t be requested; they are randomly assigned to the driver. What this means is that you couldn’t configure your HTTP calls to a known port on the hub.
There MAY be a way around this by using the multicast address, but probably best to wait for a solution to the port issue from SmartThings.
Ah, that explains the absence of this obvious very cool gadget I’ll wait patiently for it to go out of Beta and will live with IFTTT delays until then.
