Initially I wil talk about how I have been using auto remote, and also the bold text which is more the question that I would like feedback on if possible. I am talkig out loud, as up until now I haven't thought into detail in how autoremote has been working for me. 1) At the moment i use IFTTT to get my google home assistants to talk to Tasker. So I use a recipe that does a webhook to an address that is really long.... (I think I set up IFTTT in the autoremote app on my android server and that provided the address... I think. Can't really remember). But the webhook does a get request of the json type to https://autoremotejoaomgcd.appspot.com/sendmessage?key=reallyLongKeyThinkWasGivenInAutoremote&sender=reallyDoesntMatterForMeAsDontCareWhereItCameFrom&message=ImportantKeyTriggerMessage So I think this makes IFTTT to do a get request to the autoremote server. Then autoremote server sends the message in the address to my autoremote app on my android box, which is defined by the key in the address, and labelled as from the sender in the address. Then tasker deals with that message by the filter I put in the tasker script. 2) I have been using automremote and tasker on my android phones, tablets, android boxes etc to send and recieve message through tasker and act accordingly. All devices are setup in the autoremote app, with the bluetooth turned on in hope that it makes the messages get sent faster particularly for the devices that stay put at home. I assume this is the best way to send messages between devices when they are all Android devices and also when they are a mix of devices that stay at home and ones that roam outside the local network. 3) Now if I am using an ESP8266 (NodeMCU) on the same local network to my android automation box, who's code is written in Arduino IDE, then all I have to do is go the http site "http://localIP:1817/?message=ImportantKeyTriggerMessage I need to ensure AutoRemote Wifi service is turned on in Tasker for this to work. This seems way to simple and feel I am missing something. This device will stay on the local network and so will the device it talks to.
