Really an app in need!

It would be appreciated to make "a periphery plugged in" a new trigger. Like headphone via 3.5mm jack, external drive via USB/Thunderbolt, external display via DP etc.

Great Idea

Much needed. Getting ahead of Apple in terms of functionality - I'd love to see USB device disconnect/connect be a trigger.
