Update variable outside of SharpTools


Is there a method to update a variable outside of SharpTools ideally via an API?

Not directly via an API at the moment - though we have been internally discussing an HTTP/Webhook Trigger for rules.

Can you share some more details on the use-case? Perhaps there’s another approach that could be used in the meantime.

No real use case at the moment. I’m just evaluating what’s possible across different platforms.

One possible case though would be when using a 3rd party geo-location service to update a variable to identify if you’re home or not for use within rules.

Another would be when using a service via IFTTT with the trigger being something outside ST/HE control and the IFTTT action being to return a string value to a SharpTools variable for use by a rule.

I appreciate I could create a virtual switch and update that but that only really helps if the result is a true/false or on/off scenario.
