  • Hi everyone! We just released v0.72.13 that includes Webhooks. Webhooks integration allows adding buttons that send custom HTTP requests. Here are the types of HTTP requests currently supported by Smart Remote:

    • HTTP DELETE 

    • HTTP GET 

    • HTTP POST

    • HTTP PUT

    Please see how to set up Webhooks here

    We would love to get your feedback about this new feature and learn about what you are able to accomplish thanks to it! Feel free to share your DIY projects here!

      Anne-Sophie F.  HTTP querry finaly! Thank you for making this available. I've tested this during the last few days and here is some feedback regarding the new HTTP feature. I'd really like:

      - The have ability to rename the groupings of actions thus created: they are all called Webhooks, which is not practical nor user friendly if you want to create controls for the following objects: living room shutter, dining room shutter, ceiling light, etc.

       

      - To be able to create buttons with icons: today it is only text.

      - To be able to manage dimmers by communicating a dynamic parameter (e. g. %) in the HTTP request

      - to be able to manage a status feedback (ON/OFF for example)

      - to be able to retrieve data via HTTP to display data like temperatures, consumption,...

      - to have the ability to customize the layout of the screen so that it can be arranged as we wish with buttons that look more like a remote control than with a simple list of text choices

      - to be able to execute queries on the local network and not just on the cloud.

      - ...

      This would be great as a starter! Keep on enhancing the features!

  • Yes, we need :

    - a button connected to http request
    - a dimmer (% based) connected to http request, with a variable

     

    Some example :
    1. a button to open shutter -> http://local-ip/domos.php?action=openshutter
    2. a dimmer (% based) to open shutter on a % basis -> http://local-ip/domos.php?action=openshutter&forhundred=$forhundred (here forhundred is a number between 0 and 100)

     

    Why this is usefull ?
    1. for home automation : shutter, classic light (no wifi light like Hue), awning, heating..
    2. to control an amplifier or projector by http request, this is usefull when aim the IR receiver is not easy.

     

    Why not use IFTTT ?
    Of course we can do that with IFTTT (maybe, according to your integration of IFTTT), but this is less reliable and less fast.

  • Hello,

    1. So if I understand correctly, you want a device in which you can add buttons and associate each button to a specific http request. And the request must be called when we click on the button. So it’s really like IFTTT webhooks.
    2. And in the same device or in another device, a dimmer associated to a specific http request with parameter that must be changed when the value of the dimmer change and then called.
    This matches with your request ?

      Exactly. This would be awesome.

      "So it's really like IFTTT webhooks" --> Almost. In my case a HTTP request wouldn't go out to the internet but stay on my local network, which I'd prefer over IFTTT.

      Hi,

      Yes exactly ! And yes this is really like IFTTT webhooks, but much reliable since this doesnt go out of the house and work even if internet is broken.

      I know that nowadays internet connections are reliable and permanent. And I already use IFTTT webhooks in a home automation framework. But that said people do not necessarily accept not being able to open a shutter because the internet connection is cut.

  • With HTTP requests I could control almost anything I have at home. This is a really important and basic feature, maybe the most important one for me.

  • Http request would open the remote to our local http api.

    The nodon niu button have this option, it could be someting like this.

    Also There IS another protocol you have to make it work on the remote : the Mqtt

    Maybe like the MQTT DASH app on Android.

    It is a must have for domotic

  • 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.

    And it would be great to have the ability to customize the screen layout so you could have it laid out with buttons more like a remote control rather than just a list to select from, i guess a bit like morreale was saying above about play, etc. That way I could map the buttons/layouts to lights, speakers, shutters, fans, etc (pretty much everything)

  • Exactly, juste liké a remote template, and a button could be an action or a aviable definie then the action with the variable in parametter.

  • For a dimmer you would juste have to specify low and Hugh level ex: 0 to 100 or maybe 0 to 255, then you would have a slicer to sent the order

  • Anne-Sophie F. said:
    We just released v0.72.13 that includes Webhooks

     Now I can finally buy a remote to start testing, though as others state in this thread I hope its flexibility and usability continue to expand - allowing custom placement, custom button imagery, bidirectional support (subscribe to events / status updates initiated by / sent from other controllers), etc.
