Add dummy user for geo location (car)



So i have a volvo, which i can read out the details via a rest-api on the internet. What i want is to have this in fibaro. I know that users have a geo location. Can i add a dummy user and use a rest-api call towards fibaro to constantly update the location of the car?


I can always transform the format into a correct matter, just need to know if its possible so i could trigger certain things based on the cars location. An example would be, if i see movement on certain days at 6 in the morning (wife has morning shift) and those days i don't need the car and the temperature outside is negative degrees i can turn on the heater of the car.


Sounds like a nice plan no?

Accessing datas from the car should not be easy to read - othervise it will be easy to access your car by anyone over internet.

Only hope is that Volvo will implement such functions in their " Volvo On Call" software

  • Ofcourse it is secure, username/pwd, user agents, extra payload in de headers, it wasn't easy to figure out. You need a volvo on call username/password that you use already in order to get any data at all. But thats besides the point of my original question, if i can update a dummy user with gps coordinates.
