Bose SoundTouch Discrete On/Off

  • Hello FlicTeam

    I was wondering if you could add a discrete on and off action to the Bose SoundTouch integration. Unfortunately the WebAPI only offers a "power" toggle, however it turns out "on/off" can easily be implemented using the "/now playing" query interface.

    Here is what a call with reply looks like when my SoundTouch is on standby:

    curl | xmllint --format -

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <nowPlaying deviceID="000000000000" source="STANDBY">
    <ContentItem source="STANDBY" isPresetable="true"/>

    Finally here is the original quote from an answer on the Bose forums:
    The answer is that at this time, there isn't a function for that. The recommendation is to use the /key endpoint with the "POWER" value. As it's a toggle, the recommendation is to check now_playing and only 'press' the power key if the source field for contentItem isn't "STANDBY". Thanks again.
