OhmConnect + Smartthings Integration

I made a few modifications to the device handler to have it actually poll the server. Don’t know why polling wouldn’t refresh.

	} catch (e) {
		log.error "something went wrong: $e"

I’m still not seeing polling refresh. I only get the executing ‘poll’ when I click the refresh button in the app.

Remove and reinstall/initialize the device. Otherwise it won’t pick up the runEvery1Minute schedule.

thanks, that did it! I was getting weird refreshes every 15-20, but removing and adding now has it polling every minute. I’ll see how it works next Ohm hour!

Hi there, I’m new here and I’m already very grateful to the community for all of the posts which have helped me a lot already.

I would like to see if someone could provide some help setting this up. This integration would be very useful to me but I can’t seem to be able to find my Ohmconnect Account ID to configure the Device Handler.

Is there something that I am missing here? I am assuming this integration still works. Am I wrong?

I just signed up for ohmconnect and it would be really helpful if my smart devices through smartthings were controllable. I don’t plan on repurchasing all of my plugs and whatnot.

So does this still work? I can’t find much documentation anywhere here or at ohmconnect.


I just figured out an “easy” way to automate devices in smartthings for ohmconnect events. I use IFTTT OhmConnect<>WeMo smart switch. I think use the WeMe as the trigger for a Smartthings automation. Its a bit wonky but it works.

Then again, the last few OhmHours have been “prize” so no money incentive. I am not sure any of this is worth it.

OhmConnect has been added to the official integrations.

Not able to see ohmconnect in smartthings. Is that removed? I am trying in add device and ohm is not listed there. Please correct me if I’m doing wrong to add the ohmconnect.
