Is there a way to determine the source of button press on a QuickApp ?



What I normally do is to have a QuickApp for a particular function.  For example Blinds_Controller, Gate_Controller or Bathroom_Controller.  Where all the business logic is inside the QA.    Then other scenes or users or Alexa just press the buttons in the QA to execute something.


A few of the Logic examples in the Blinds Controller 

  1. Will not open a blind in the Movie Room if someone is watching a movie.
  2. Will not close the blinds at night if there is a storm forecast, in case we lose power and cant activate them next morning
  3. Will not close blinds on Doors or Windows if they are open/ajar


This way, I don't have to replicate the logic everywhere.  BTW, there is an override button for the user, so they can bypass the restrictions if so desired. :-)


For some of the logic, it would be nice to know if a user pressed the button or a scene.  I see this in the logs, but there is nothing there. 

  1. Can I determine if a user or a scene pressed a button
  2. What is the "values":[null] in the event.
