SmartThings Device Handler for PS4-Waker

I took this device handler and re-wrote it as things were broken with it.

  • ps4-waker w/ a REST wrapper for it. I used PS4 Waker Rest but made tweaks to it. I'll post up those changes soon.
  • Control PS4 power (on/off)
  • Control up to three (3) games (start/switch)
With this you will be able to control the PS4 power and start/switch games with the SmartThings app.

You will be able to have Alexa/Google Home/Haromony Hub power on/off your PlayStation but cannot use voice commands to start/switch games.

You can use a virtual switch in conjunction with WebCORE to have Alexa/Google Home start/switch games for you.

Note: The handler will refresh the PS4 status every 15 minutes to capture the PS4's current activity.
