Hey everyone… I have a pretty good ST + Echo Dot + Harmony Elite Hub setup but I’ve found that the Harmony will not allow me to change the input of my receiver upon shutdown commands (in order for the Echo Dot to always use the speakers).
To get around this, I was thinking of creating a SmartApp that just changes my input for me on the receiver once an hour to ensure that it is in the right mode for the Echo Dot to be able to use the speakers. The biggest issue I see here is that I need to NOT perform that recurring action whenever the receiver is actually being used.
I see on my Smart Thing Harmony Hub that when an activity is On, it sends out a status code as opposed to ‘----’. I am thinking that I could probably use this as a way to stop my recurring action from occurring.
Does anyone know if this is possible? Am I missing a much easier solution? Any help is appreciated…
