I think I'm giving up on my russound multiroom amp with rs232 control for now.
I have purchased an arylic up2stream amp and have been pleasently surprised with it's capability and ease of use. I currently use the app with it but would like to integrate it in HE so I can shutdown and control simple things like volume and track without having to always switch between apps once the source is playing something.
The API doc is here and seems simple enough but I don't have a strong programming background.
For the seasoned guys does this seem doable to make a simple app to do basic control? (I dont need anything crazy like feedback etc)
Since it is a local REST API it is not a very complicated thing to communicate with. It looks rather well documented as well. If I can get one of these here in China directly, I might even consider getting one, this looks nice. With that said, I have no time for any more programming projects, so hopefully someone else writes something.
If you simplly want to control the device's functions and don't need any of the http requests that send feedback, you can do it all with RM or the newly reinstated Button Controller. Create a virtual button device with enough buttons to do each action you want to perform. Then, put appropriate HTTP request assigned to each button when pushed. I did similar to create a dashboard for my Roku. It's a 20 button virtual device
they are very nice for the price and you can link multiple units with no delay between zones for the perfect affordable multiroom experience. The boards are like $70 US and all you need to do is use a 24v power supply for them/
The built in airplay, bluetooth and native streaming for tidal, spotify deezer etc is amazing for the price
