Is there an app to give me a JSON api to devices in hubitat? preferably through the cloud endpoint? I did some checking in the community and found some older threads hinting that a smartthings app could be setup or that a dashboard app could be ported over but those topics were relatively old and vague.
I have been playing around with building a chatbot at www.rundexter.com I think that with a proper JSON interface it would be relatively easy to build a bot that you could query devices and issues commands from.
The documentation in the wiki is pretty good and probably all you need. It documents how to gets device status and how to turn on lights and switches. It is missing using the tile variable which is easier than the long id values.
If you want to do something that isn’t described there just ask here and tell me what you are trying to do and I will help.
Correct - to use this you need to have HousePanel set up on a server - typically a rPI inside your firewall that can talk directly to your Hubitat hub. To install Hubitat can push all the access codes to HousePanel once you have it set up.
