Is there any way to trigger smartthings from an external program.
I have a zwave controlled gate to my property. I recently added a nest outdoor cam to monitor the approach to it. I was playing around with Ispy, the surveillance software, and added the Licence Plate Recognition plugin. After testing this and moving the camera about a bit, it is recognising plates with 95-100% confidence in daytime and 80-90% at night.
What I want to do is use this to open the gates. I have used tasker to intercept the email alert from ispy and then sharp tools to trigger the gate, but this only seems to work a couple of times then stops. Ispy can use http post or can trigger an external exe file on detection, so is there any way to interface this with smartthings directly.
