Apple Watch : add confirmation for action

Hey !

I’m using HASS with my Apple Watch to open my garage doors. But I would like to add a confirmation when triggering on the watch (like I added in Lovelace for garage doors)

Is it possible ?

That should be easy. I have the below automation that activates my alarm and sends a confirmation message. I think that is exactly what you are looking for.

- id: alarm_turn_on
  alias: Turn alarm on
  initial_state: true
    - platform: event
      event_type: ios.action_fired
        actionName: 'Alarm on'
    - service: input_boolean.turn_on
      entity_id: input_boolean.alarm
    - service: notify.mobile_app_rene_s_iphone_11
        message: 'Alarm turned on'
    - service: notify.mobile_app_iphone_x_de_carlota
        message: 'Alarm turned on'

You need actionable notifications

Confirmation for performing actions is an active feature request.

Thanks all for your answers.
I have the confirmation from webUI (on desktop and mobile), but not on the watch. I’ll investigate for actionable notifications as mentioned by @deluxestyle but the feature requested like in the link of @zacwest would be great.

I’ve implemented this in a blueprint. Hope it’s useful!

Finally I did otherwise.
I created automations, triggered with webhooks, and on the iOS / WatchOS shortcuts : I did this :

Now I have the confirmation popup, on the Mac, on my iPhone, and on my watch :slight_smile:
