World cup scores sensor



Ok so its not often i post here with something that isnt a question, however i have spent this morning tasked with the job of creating sensors to alert if and when there are goals in the world cup! We are a sweepstakes heavy office :)

It utilises LordMilko's API for sensor creation and pause, the good work of the chaps at worldcup.sfg.io and iricigor's FIFA2018 module but i thought some people may be interested ?


The get-fifa-today.ps1 is to be run by the exexml sensor from Custom Sensors, the WCNewSensorEachDay.ps1 needs to run as a scheduled task to pause yesterdays sensor and create todays, this is to work around the inability to update channel names via API.

Its all very hacky and im surprised it works but it does and the notification group for goal updates are very happy :)

Maybe you should map it somehow on a soccerfield map ;-)
