Is it possible to trigger a template or playlist from a control system like Crestron or AMX?

    It looks like it would be possible but, not set up for it as of now. Would
    require working with them and getting access to there api and such. I would
    ask Mike for more info.

    Hi Jordan, you can trigger content using our REST web API which may be an option for you. This allows triggering of individual content within a playlist, or an entire schedule. To trigger individual content you'll need to add a 'When' condition of 'Command' to the playlist item by editing an item in your playlist then clicking the 'Schedule' tab. Likewise, to trigger an entire schedule you'll need to use a Smart Schedule with a 'When' condition of 'Command'.

    Our developer API has the docs for making the REST call. Specifically the PostCommand method for devices:
