Plex Media Server announced yesterday that they’ve implemented a new “webhooks” feature that will enable users to send a JSON file to a given web address with information such as “play”, “pause”, “resume”, “stop” actions on a Plex client. So among other things, this would enable Plex to tell a home automation system like Vera that a movie just started, and then Vera could dim the lights, pull the shades closed, etc. Movie stops, lights back on, shades open. You get the idea.
I think there’s been some toying with similar applications in the past by some Vera owners for Kodi or XBMC, but nothing officially through Plex. Now that this is available, what will it take to get this working on Vera? Is there someway for Vera to receive the JSON info and trigger a switch based on info in the JSON? Any help would be appreciated.
NOTE: Plex does say this feature requires a Plex Pass.
