VIOLET are excited to announce the imminent rollout of the HTTPviaSD plugin. This plugin will allow users to load a configuration file onto SmartSwitch Lite via an SD card in the SD card slot to load a HTTP request onto a scene button. This opens up the ability to send a HTTP request to countless systems.
Link up to IFTTT, any control system imaginable or even Home Assistant without using the Hue Emulator.
The config file is YAML and you can find a template alongside an in-depth guide here. It’s a simple process of adding any scene labels and sub labels you want to the file along with the http request. Once you have loaded the file onto a SmartSwitch Lite through the SD card slot, you can add, edit reorder or remove the scenes as necessary.
HTTPviaSD will be rolling out in software version 1.6.0 starting next week.
Let us know what you think of this new integration.
Very useful. I am using this to trigger webhook based automations in home assistant.
It might be nice to have click, double click and hold events for each button on the screen ?
