I'm thinking of a possible way to allow Hue Bridge to command simple signal routing. I find myself rewiring my audio setup a lot and was about to just make a simple passive signal chooser dial box, but because all my other workflows are so smoothly integrated to holistic scripts that set things up and ready for me so I can start working, it would be a big help if I could integrate in the audio signal switches too. To avoid pops, the switching could be set to be done before the actual audio devices and speakers are powered.
At the simplest, a signal chooser is basically an ON/ON switch, sometimes with more positions. Just two positions would already be a big help. I have seen some documentation where people modify an existing Zigbee device to implement it to their own use (such as, using a fader to make motorized curtains), but because the original isn't really fundamentally altered, the Bridge will still pair normally and see it as the device that it used to be. But what existing device might be logically any similar to an ON/ON switch? I have an Osram smart socket that is smoothly paired with the Philips Hue Bridge, and while it of course doesn't have the fader parameters, it understands commands ON and OFF. I'm not aware if there's any pairable device that already technically is an ON/ON switch. And I'm thinking, if you wanted to change an ON/OFF device into an ON/ON device, it would require altering of the code, which probably isn't possible or allowed. Or, would it have to be two ON/OFF devices somehow working in parallel so that whenever the state of one changes, the other one toggles its state to the reverse?
I've never seen any talk about Zigbee controlling analog signals so this is either a very dumb and impossible or a very optimistic but workable idea.
