Walldisplay: webhooks?


Recommended Posts


I have just installed my Shelly Walldisplay and I cannot figure out how to execute a webhook action from a "virtual button" on the screen.

As far as I can see the only things that can be trigger are devices, scenes or groups.

Is there a way to trigger an action from the screen ?

Webhooks are already working. As an example, you can set the input and switch, screen touch/wipe, temperature, humidity brightness as conditions for actions

Up to now, is there a possibility to activate WD screen via webhook or anything else - for example triggered by a motion detection  of Shelly motion 2 sensor?

Thx for reply,

not sure, I understood it correctly. Just want to explain it, what my plan is:
I have some automation defined in home assistant, eg: Open the covers + switch on my AV-receiver. This automation swichted shelly and non-shelly devices. 
And I want to assign this automation to a virtual button on the walldisplay

Another idea is to switch on/off the samsung AC.

Actually I am using a fritzbox switch and when tipping on the switch, a webhook is sent with the POST-method.
I want to do this also with a virtual button on th WD.
Do you know how to realize this?

Thanks for your support.

In my opinion, you actually only have one chance.
Install an i4 (I still had an i3 lying around) and use one of these switches to trigger a scene or an automation in the Home Assistant.

I have done the same thing, which works smoothly, but now comes the real problem. I installed the Shelly display as a replacement for a wall thermostat and configured it as such with the internal thermostat.

When I now activate a scene with the virtual switch, my button in the Shelly Display switches to active (blue ring) and after a few minutes the room temperature suddenly rises by a few degrees Celsius... In my opinion, this is a disaster! Thinking further ... I could measure the temperature with another Schelly and attach it there ... great, but I'd have to pay another 40 euros for that. I find that rather inappropriate.

I'm currently looking for a better solution, although I'm actually convinced by Shelly.
I hope I was able to help you.

A BLU H&T is recommended as an external temperature sensor. An exclusive integration option has been created in the firmware.


-If BLU H&T as ext. Sensor active, the internal sensor is deactivated
-The position for the external sensor can be freely selected; temperature interference (mounting on the outside wall, sunlight) can be avoided here


-BLU H&T is battery-operated, but there are also warnings on the display if the battery is low or the BLU H&T no longer sends signals because it is out of reception range.
