Violet SmartSwitch

The Violet SmartSwitch Lite is a neat wall mounted touch screen interface for Philips Hue Lighting and Sonos Audio which can also be easily programmed to operate the Audioflow Speaker Switch via the HTTPviaSD feature.


Finding the IP Address of your Audioflow Switch

Within the Audioflow App, when you enter the settings of your Audioflow Switch (Cog Button) you will find the IP Address of your Audioflow Switch displayed within the information at the bottom of the screen.

You can also find the IP Address by holding down the ‘Zone A’ button of your switch for 3 seconds and reading the address on the middle line of the second page.


Saving this IP Address for your Audioflow Switch

We would recommend that you edit the settings of your Broadband Router and set this up such that your Audioflow Switch receives the same IP Address every time it is restarted. This is often called a DHCP Reservation or a Static Lease.


Create your requests.yml file

Using a plaintext editor

---
version: 1.0
scenes:
  id[INCREMENT_NUMBER]:
    label: [ZONE_NAME] ON
    label2: [SPEAKER_DESCRIPTION_OPTIONAL_LINE]
    request:
      uri: http://[AUDIOFLOW_IP_ADDRESS]/zones/[ZONE_NUMBER_A=1_B=2_ETC]
      method: PUT
      headers:
        Content-Type: text/plain
      body: '1'
  id[INCREMENT_NUMBER]:
    label: [ZONE_NAME] OFF
    label2: [SPEAKER_DESCRIPTION_OPTIONAL_LINE]
    request:
      uri: http://[AUDIOFLOW_IP_ADDRESS]/zones/[ZONE_NUMBER_A=1_B=2_ETC]
      method: PUT
      headers:
        Content-Type: text/plain
      body: '0'

Load onto your Violet SmartSwitch

Once you have created the requests.yml file for your switch with your switch IP Address, Zone Names and descriptions you can copy these onto a MicroSD Card and insert this into your Violet SmartSwitch. Under Settings → Scenes Screen → Add Buttons → HTTPviaSD you would be able to add the Audioflow Buttons you have created to the Scenes Screen of your Violet SmartSwitch.
