When using the safety monitor, intrusion alerts seem to only work with Sirens (ON/OFF) and a few basic actions... I can't seem to do the following actions:
- Play a specific sound from Siren/Chime devices at a certain volume
- Send HTTP GET/POST to my API
- Run/Stop a Rule
... and a few other stuffs...
Why is that? What's the design logic behind limiting the ACTIONS you can do in Safety Monitor App.
Furthermore, how is it best to achieve this?
Right now all I can think of is creating a VIRTUAL DEVICE -> SWITCH
and tie that up w/ a RULE + ACTION
And have the Safety Monitor app TURN ON/OFF that virtual switch.... haven't done it yet but seems theoretically possible, right? BUt I can't help but feel things are clunky having to go through these work arounds..
