Smartthings HebCal Integration

Ephrayim 4 days ago 0

The HebCal Smartthings integration changes modes based on the candle lighting time provided by the HebCal API. The smart app code can be seen here. Recently I noticed that the smart app is switching to Sabbath mode at candle lighting time on Chanukah due to chanukah candles being listed under the "candles" category. Because of the way the JSON is parsed this is causing the smart app to trigger Sabbath mode at candle lighting time during Chanukah. 


I'm not saying this is an API issue because it can be resolved by changing the app's programing, but since there are many people using this Smartthings smart app (which is an official app available in the Smartthings store)  perhaps the API could be slightly adjusted so as to avoid this error?
