I use an Apple TV (gen 4) as my only source when watching TV. In the TV room I also have a heat pump that is normally running at full fan speed, in order to get the best possible distribution of heat.
However, when I’m watching TV I turn down the fan speed, in order to lower the noise.
So is there a way that Homey can detect when the Apple TV is turned on or off? Homey already talks to the heat pump, so it’s easy to create a flow that controls the fan speed once it knows the status of the Apple TV.
Can you run shortcuts on Apple TV? If so, you can see if there’s a shortcut action available that matches what you want (either “turn off” or “stop watching” or something similar) and send a webhook request to Homey when that happens.
Net Scan seems like a possibility. Tried with IP, but that didn’t work. The Apple TV doesn’t seem to go offline even when turned off.
At least Net Scan doesn’t detect that it’s turned off, and it also responds to ping.
So I’ll have to see if there’s a port that I can use
