Devialet RS232 Control Utility
#21
You're welcome. And by involving IFTTT, I take it that when you switch activities on the Harmony, the Devialet eventually switches to the corresponding sound input the day after ?

Big Grin 

I heard about the response times but never experienced issues myself.

My intention though proved to be impossible with ifttt. For whatever reason, the harmony applet is not available for triggers only for actions. 

So I created a simple Tasker task sequence, which would be compatible with Google home(also Alexa I guess). 

The sequence turns on the Devialet, waits 15sec, switches devialet source, sets desired volume, and runs my music streaming app Roon.

I hope the API will be released soon so that I can fiddle around with auto play of playlists

And for those with Apple iOS phones/tablets, the "Yonomi" app is also a good way of circumventing IFTTT (and keeping it local), provided that Yonomi is compatible with the Home Automation equipment you have. I use it to command Alexa to switch Harmony Activities, because the command syntax is shorter. No need for "Ask Harmony to...".

Johnny, one more question:
Do you know if it is possible to increase or decrease volume by 5 db points via http commands?

As far as I can see, I am only able to command to set the volume to a defined volume level, i.e. e.g. -40db or -20db. It would be better if I could e.g. decrease the volume level by 10db.

Do you know if this is possible?

I'm assuming you meant RS232 commands. The only way to do delta volume change is '[DEVIALET>VOLUME=++]' (or '--').
These only change it by 0.5db, so you'd need to repeat these as necessary.
