I own a Rec Tec pellet grill w/ the Wi-Fi controller. I had the idea to add my grill to SmartThings to monitor it because the RecTec app is pretty terrible. I did some research and found out that it uses Tuya as a platform so the smarts are there. I was even able to add it to the Tuya app but I was unable to do anything with the controller (it was also in Chinese). I’ve found where some people had done some work on this but not with SmartThings specifically:
I spent the better part of a day trying to make this work but I really wasn’t sure what I was doing. Beyond editing DTHs and “writing” webCoRE pistons I haven’t done much with SmartThings. I’m also not a Python guy (I use it but don’t understand it very well).
Has anything done anything with this or have any interest in working on it? Maybe even if you could just nudge me in the right direction I could try and tackle this myself? I think this would be a great integration for the community. Thanks!
Update: I was able to get the script to run and spit out the values expected. It shows set point, actual temperature and the temperature of each probe. Now I just need to figure out how to get this information into SmartThings.
