I have been using “Notifications for Android TV” for some time to show notifications when the dryer/washing machine was ready or a notification with an image when someone was at the door.
But I disliked the fact that the app was closed-source and that it was impossible to show video streams in a notification. Because of this I decided to build a new app from scratch with basically somewhat the same features, but just for use by third-parties so open-source and with a documented api.
Currently it can handle the following:
- Notifications with an image using multipart/form-data
- Notifications with optional media (image, video or web) as json
The web media type uses a WebView, which can be used to show mjpeg streams as they most likely will not play through Android’s stock video player
The application is currently in an open beta and everything you need to know to get started is described in the readme ( https://github.com/rogro82/PiPup )
I hope someone is willing to write an integration for it as I am already cutting down way too much on my sleeping time as is I have written an example integration in nodejs for another home-automation solution ( athom homey ) so that might be a good place to start ( https://github.com/rogro82/PiPup-homey )
