Starting a Device Handler for ThinkEco--help needed


(Anuj79) #1

i am planning to build a device handler for ThinkEco Devices… the one i have is a switch with power monitoring capability , i have the framework in mind that i would need to do but i am not sure what all code i would require…

i know i need a oauth to authenticate using my username/password from there i will have set switch on and off calling another restapi… will have to pass the oauth token generated earlier…any help would be appreciated…

i tried contacting thinkeco for help… i was able to reverse engineer but need some more information on what noonce to generate for oauth.

They are releasing Alexa compatibility in september as per the thinkeco twitter, maybe then we can utilize it? I am sure it will be a private api

i did ask them to provide with some oauth authentication help but they didn’t want too…
i have used homebridge to integrate it with homekit. iam not sure if smarthings has that capability
