Scheduled Player Package now supports GPIO and Remote Triggers

The Scheduled Player Package now supports GPIO (which requires OS release 10, which is currently in testing) as well as remote triggers.

The latter allows you to set a trigger for any of your pages like this:

If you then install this setup on a device and visit its device page, you’ll see the following UI added to the page:


Clicking the button will trigger the device to show the configured page. Of course this can also be automated using the API like this using the device command API:

curl -u:$API_KEY$DEVICE_ID/node/remote/trigger -d "data=Show Info"

(Replace $API_KEY with your API key and $DEVICE_ID with the ID of your device)
