i Have a sensor that alerts me when a vehicle is approaching on my drive way. When I hear the beep made by the sensor alerting me of somebody’s coming I tap my camera media tile and it goes to full page view so that I can see the vehicle. This is so useful to my wife and I since the way our house and driveway is laid out we have no window view of our drive way. If it is possible to add an extra feature that would trigger the outside flood light on if it was after sunset. Also refresh the media image when the media tile is tapped.
Maybe add media tile as a trigger using the rules engine.
I am using 2 iPads and 1 fire tablet with sharp tools. I keep one iPad on a desk stand by my chair with the sharptools dashboard displayed any time we are up and about. The other I pad I use for surfing and mail and stuff. The fire tablet is on my night stand by my bed with the dashboard displayed 24/7.
Is it possible to trigger the media tile on the iPads remotely with the driveway sensor? The sensor has connection for relays.
I can do all these things now on my tv using SmartThings and harmony. Trouble is if tv is not on, by the time it turns on, switches to the camera view the person is already at the door. If it can be done with Sharptools on my devices it would be instant.
A big request i Know. You did say you like new ideas.
