Hi. I’m trying to use Home Assistant to replace the terrible user experience that comes with Unifi’s Protect camera app. They’ve made a pretty good doorbell camera, but the related iOS notifications are useless. What good is a doorbell if you’ll never know someone is there?
Anyhow, I’ve finally gotten around to setting up an actionable notification that provides a useful notification sound, a live feed from the doorbell camera and an action that can open my driveway gate. This is great because it eliminates fumbling through multiple apps to accomplish the same thing. All I really need beyond that is a second action that can open the native Unifi Protect app. How does one open an app (that isn’t the HA companion app) via an Action?
Second question, getting to these actions requires a long press on the notification banner. A short press launches the companion app. For this use case, I don’t need to interact with the companion app directly. If it’s at all possible to call another another app from an action, is it also possible to replace the that same short press on the banner to call the same app? I’ve scoured the Internet and I can’t seem to find enough info to help me connect the dots on this.
