    • Anne-Sophie F. It works.
      A bit slow, although I am not sure of the reason but it works.
      I have tried it with a smart plug (on/off)

      Keep up the good work

  • First tests everything works very well with both possibilities, and the order is done in less than a second! It's easy to create http triggers.

    The only problem is that it's not possible to rename "webhooks" so there are an infinite number of identical tabs in the carousel and if it was possible in a next update to add an icon of your choice to more easily identify triggers.

    But it's a very nice step forward! Thanks!

      Hello Emilien,

      We are very pleased to hear that this new Integration is working perfectly for you.

       

      Your remark about the name is important, and we are planning to make webhooks customizable in a future release.

       

      For your information, you can add multiple triggers in the same webhooks service, and you will have a list with different names instead of multiple carousel devices. To do that please select the webhooks service in the device list, and add a new trigger.

       

      Also please note, that in the next release you will be able to add the webhooks to a home scene, to ease multiple webhooks trigger with the same button.

       

      Hope you will find these feature enjoyable.

      Hello!

      I saw that we could add several triggers in the same webhooks, but in automation it is more pleasant to classify the devices by rooms or types (lights, roller shutters...). Perhaps it would be nice to be able to add separators in order to visually create "groups" in the same tab!

      What about menus and sub-menus? something like what you can see in the settings?

      Don't hesitate to share any idea you think it can help us make your experience greater!

  • I have tested this out and it works really well.

    I have it sending messages to node-red in my home automation system, so now the sky is the limit for me. I don't even need IFTTT to control my devices.

    I second the call to change the names from Webhooks to something more meaningful and also the icons.

    Also, would there be any way that it could also be able to get back a status like ON/OFF or something like that so it can show the most recent value/status of what it is controlling? That would make this feature even more awesome.

    • John Bullivant thanks a lot for sharing how you use this feature, we are glad that this works well for you!

      Changing names and icons for Webhooks is definitely something we want to implement, we'll let you know as soon as we have news on this. 

      Concerning getting the status this is definitely something we are going to look at. Thanks a lot for sharing your feedback, this is precious for us!

  • Holy s***!!

    3 years after backing this on Kickstarter, the feature (custom HTTP requests) that was the sole reason I bought this device is finally here!

    Now I actually have a reason to take my Smart Remote out of the box I received almost a year ago, and start integrating it why my home systems.

    PS: Though this post might seem like I'm criticizing Sevenhugs, it's of course fully understandable that sending custom HTTP requests or an IFTTT integration isn't exactly a use case for the majority of their backers/consumers, so to the contrary, huge kudos to Sevenhugs for actually delivering on their promises, compared to some other successful Kickstarters that still lack feature parity with what they originally promised (looking at you, Airtame...)

    Thank you! =)
