Re: HOWTO: Make your own SoundTouch sleep timer and alarm clock with IFTTT and Microsoft Flow
I just tried to make my own IFTTT recipie but unfortunately the IFTTT Maker channel doesn't allow you to send XML requests, only JSON or form data 😞
Not sure if @JasonG reads this - I wonder if its possible to contact the devs to find out if there is a way to get the Bose to understand HTTP POST requests in form or JSON format..probably not. But it would be quite trivial to tweak to allow the receival of form data in the format:
xml=<my_xml_command><member= "abc123" ipaddress=123></member></my_xml_command>
This would easily open up the speakers to integration with everything via IFTTT. Please make it happen! 🙂
Update: Wooo I made it happen! I realised you CAN get the IFTTT Maker channel to send XML if you format it like a crazy person and escape everything with lots of additional brackets. I just made a recipe that takes a Logitech POP button and allows me to simply press the physical button to turn on "Play All"! I will try and document it for people this weekend but in theory you can do tons of cool stuff..like turn on Bose when your Nest home device realises you're home etc.
