Time for me to unfollow this thread. Enough BS noise in my inbox.
Honestly, what fantasy land do you geeks live in that you think this is an effective way to convince Emporia to support your hobbiest whims?
99.9% + of their users don’t give a rat’s ass about any of this. I was just hoping to find a Smartthings DTH for this thing, not spend days writing code and setting up servers, etc.
A small but vocal group of douchebags who have way too much time on their hands say what?
Thanks very much KPN and Magico! It looks like exactly what I need for Smartthings.
Home Assistant has not been on my radar, although I seem to remember a similarly named product from the old X10 days. I’ve got a lot already invested in Smartthings ecosystem, but I have been very worried about Samsung’s apparent plans to abandon their Groovy API, and leave users like me with multiple custom DTH’s and my WebCore integrations behind. Until they pull the plug, I’m really not ready to change everything.
I will definitely investigate Home Assistant for a future pathway (for all my HA if Samsung pulls the plug on me). I wish I was smart enough to turn Magico’s github contribution for HA into a ST DTH. I still hope somebody else is working on this!
Looking forward to becoming a customer once you guys have a device type handler for SmartThings!
Your product looks great and I really want the capability to monitor so many individual circuits. I’d have already purchased Eydro because of their ST integration, if they had your capability to monitor individual circuits.
I’m not so interested in controlling Emporia smart plugs, as I am in using information about when circuits switch on or off (or exceed some current threshold) to trigger other actions in Smartthings. I think about 1 minute lag is fine for this – similar to what the EcoBee API/DTH seems to deliver from their cloud integration with ST. Please consider this in your development plans for API and ST DTH development.
I’ll keep following this thread closely, and plan to buy right away, once the capability exists.
I really want to dive in with this device, or another that meets my needs for smartthings integration. Looking at Sense, Eyedro and Emporia, only Eyedro has ST integration, but only Emporia has dedicated circuit monitors – I really want the ability to trigger ST actions based on current thresholds on individual circuits, preferably with sub 1 minute lag (and prefer not to have to rig something with dedicated individual sensors on each device, as well as benefit from the power usage data). Anyone in this community have a suggestion for me?
Unfortunately, I lack the skills to contribute, and fine with the limitations of pulling data from the cloud. I hope someone is successful in developing such an API, and either this community or the company can create a DTH for ST with this kind of capability.
As someone said earlier, I know there are “dozens of us” who want this type of thing, so likely not so motivating to the company, but I’ll be at least one more customer as soon as the capability exists with one of these energy monitor devices. I was encouraged by Emporia’s comment on another thread that this is “on their radar”. I will continue to lurk on threads like this until then!
