Is there a way to call an action on a fan using the local API and a GET request rather than a PUT?
Here is my use case:
I’ve installed a smart relay on our bedroom wall switch. (A Shelly1: https://shelly.cloud/shelly1-open-source/) One of the nifty features available is “long press” and “short press” “actions” (web requests) for flipping the switch back and forth. I thought it would be very nifty to use this to control the light on my fan with the local API. But, unfortunately, the only “action” is to hit a url with a GET request. I can’t specify a body, header, or HTTP method. I can still use it to turn on the light via IFTTT, but getting the cloud involved makes it annoyingly slow. I’d love to do it all locally and without needing other home-automation software involved.
I love the Bond and we use it with Alexa all the time, but I miss the instant feed back of a simple toggle switch.
