New here and my first post. Apologize up front if I am naive at this point. I was working on internet before it was announced to general public so I have some tech clue, but out of date on a lot of the new tech programming languages. Just started automating my house with Smartthings.
I have a Quietcool whole house fan and a wifi controller branded by Quietcool but supported by Intermatic. I think TamTech also uses this wifi controller for their whole house. This is a fairly new whole house fan product and is get really popular. Wifi Device: https://www.ecomfort.com/QuietCool-IT-36001/p76816.html?utm_term=7681676816&var1=ecomfortusa&var2=adwordsfroogle&var3=28069&keyword=GOOGLEPLA-28069&gclid=CjwKCAjw8IXMBRB8EiwAg9fgMG6JS65wKQWRZEYToDto4MjoXDFkp7vnu5nEuVtjRrOMrfxzx9EK7BoChQ4QAvD_BwE
My problem is that there is no API for the wifi device or external control for this device except for the phone app. Internatic never replied to my email but Quietcool said they will be looking at some sort of Smart device solution soon. Nothing on the internet that is of any help.
I spent some time doing some net sniffing and found its doing JSON and broke thinks down further and found its doing COAP. I setup Command-Line COAP from GIT and I am able to control the fan with COAP/JSON.
From what I have read COAP is not available in Smartthings, is this correct? Is there anyway I can control this COAP device in Smartthings or something coming in the near future. Does Eclipse or Californium work on Smartthings?
Some added info:
The wifi is not on the cloud but on your local router and is ok with me. i have an Ecobee4 (outside sensor is actually on front porch to measure outside temp and front door motion), Tado Smart AC (for minisplit), Quietcool fan and now Smartthings Hub.
My plan is to control heating and cool with ecobee as master for indoor and outdoor temperature as well as control my heat (wall furnace) and whole house fan.
