i want to build something when i’ve planned a meeting with a client, homey gets the name of the client out of my agenda, and creates a welcome screen on our tv at the entry.
So as an example:
i plan a meeting in my agenda on sep 10 at 14;00 with (name: Max Schuppert)
15 minutes before the meeting starts, homey sends a flow to the chromecast to turn on the tv, and make a welcome screen (i guess we need a seperate app for this).
The tv turns on, and the tv shows: Welcome (Max Schuppert)
45 minutes later, homey will turn off the tv.

• track n#

and what not

Open the app settings (configure app) and paste in the ical link and give your calendar a name.
If you do not know where to find the link you…
