The Laundry Has Finished


(Nick Snyder) #7

This is exactly what I have been looking for! Is it possible to add a push notification instead of a switch?

(Andy - United Kingdom) #8

Do mean just a push when the laundry is finished?

(Nick Snyder) #9

Correct. I don’t want to turn on a switch. Just want a push notification
from SmartThings

(Andy - United Kingdom) #10

I can probably do that.
I’ll have a look for you

Try this…

Please let me know how you get on.

Thank you so much! I will test it today.

Do I have to do anything to activate the app or it works automatically? That was the only part I was confused by.

(Andy - United Kingdom) #13

you just need to install & publish it in the IDE then install it in the smartthings app on your mobile device

(Nick Snyder) #14

Thanks. I have lots of apps installed but I didn’t know if it needed to be

I will let you know how it goes!

What speakers are people using to get the voice commands?

(Andy - United Kingdom) #19

Any wifi or dnla speakers will work
I’m using ‘Jam Rhythm’ speakers

I have a few Alexa speakers around the house, any chance they could work?

(Andy - United Kingdom) #21

Unfortunately if they are amazon echo then no.
Amazon to not allow the pushing of messages to play via speaker.

(Jay) #22

Ok cheers I will have to look for a Wi-fi speaker

(Jay) #23

How about using a chromcast audio?

(MarcinK) #24

This works perfectly - thanks Cobra!

I have a simple question. I do have a number of wifi speakers (sonos) and they are on smartthings. How do I tell the app which speaker to send the voice message to? I don’t see an option other than to turn on/off push messages. am I missing a piece of the puzzle?

(Andy - United Kingdom) #26

it depends which app you downloaded.

For voice you can use Message Central (at lot bigger/more complicated app with a lot more features)

Or try this…
