Change function of camera when changing SmartThings location mode

Post by swolsen » Thu Apr 29, 2021 10:51 am

Not sure if anyone is interested in this but I wrote a PHP CLI script to update certain (inside) monitors to change from [Monitor] to [Modect] and back depending on Smarthings location mode changing between [Home] and [Away]. I run it under a cron job every 5 minutes.

Code: Select all

#!/usr/bin/php

<?php
/************************************************************************************************************************
	Uses curl to get Smartthing's location mode (away or home) and set specified zoneminder camera id's function
	(Monitor or Modect)	based on ST mode. Requires personal authorization token (PAT) from your Smarthings account
