I would like to run an automation as soon as a certain display gets connected to mac.
The display is not recognized as usb device but as display. So I would need a trigger that:
- Recognizes a certain display (not all of them, so the count function doesn't work)
After searching through the forums I couldn't find a way.
So why on earth would you need a thing like that?
Real world use case
I do livestreaming on several macs. One of them is a macbook air.
As soon as I connect a "Elgato Cam Link 4k" to this macbook air, I would like it to run some actions.
The Cam Link gets connected through usb bus it not recognized as usb device anywhere in the systems report of the macbook air (m1 version). BUT it shows as a Display with the name "Cam Link 4k".
Is there a way to create a trigger that activates as soon as the display "INSERT DESIRED DISPLAY NAME HERE" gets connected? Since I have several displays monitors on this device, it should not trigger with any of the others.
Thanks in advance for your automation wizardry.
