Does anyone know if there's a way to make the ETH03 module initiate an HTTP call?
I have a QNAP NAS with a CCTV system setup on it and currently 1 camera pointing at my front gates. My Comfort system has a wireless sensor on the gate and it currently triggers an SMS event and a voice announcement when the gate opens. The CCTV s/w on the NAS has the ability to trigger recordings based on virtual triggers that are initiated by making an HTTP request - e.g.:
However, just in case anyone else has a similar requirement in the future... I've come up with a simple(ish) plan:
I will buy a cheap generic Wifi enabled Arduino-style device (e.g. NodeMCU or WeMOS D1) from eBay and set it up to monitor a Comfort Output pin. When the output is triggered the little microcontroller will then initiate the HTTP call.
I'll need to use appropriate voltage dividers to step-down power supply and ensure the voltage on the Output pin is compatible with their input, etc.
And I'll need to find the time to ever get around to it
