Register webhook as device to send message to home server

I would like to be able to send messages to my home server.

I think a reasonable way to do that would be to publish an spec for a service to recieve messages via a web hook. I would then be able to register the url to the webhook as a device and Join could get/post a payload (according to the spec) to that url.


The rest is up to me then.

Ok, thanks, that makes it clearer!

That's already possible :) 

Go here: https://joinjoaomgcd.appspot.com/ and use the JOIN API button.

Also, check here for a IFTTT example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tu0NG2xeRDg

Hope this helps!

I am not making myself clear :(

I know about the join api which allows messages to be sent _from_ a web service (and it is very cool)

What I would like is to be able to send messages _to_ a web service.


If I could register a url as a device somehow, then when messages are sendt to that device, join would make a get-request to that url

... this might also be possible to do some ifttt stuff with this
