My hope was to implement a somewhat generic webhook type notifier so OG can tell any system (whether it is SmartThings or something else (like Node-Red) that a door or vehicle status has changed. This avoids the need for them to have to constantly query OG and watch for the status to change (This is what I currently do for the apple support and it is somewhat inefficient and problematic as the code every 10 seconds asks ‘OG Are you open or closed”?

So the specific case right now is for SmartThings and using that as a POC but I would like to make it more generic on the OG side at least.

Ben’s Smartthings app could then be used to pickup the notification and update the app

at least that was my thought
