Re: Is the API dead? Is Alertme finished?

The API is far from dead - alive and kicking and most of the docs have been published here now!

Re: Access to AlertMe docs.

The older v2 API is still available and I'm sure I have a copy of the v5 API from when it was public. I'll see if I can dig that version out. EDIT: No need. It's all here . The v5 API is the one still used by BG for Hive (EDIT, they're on v6 and beyond now) - I was in touch with them about adding su...

Re: Registration and Activation

Thanks - it might be a good idea! I'm rather at a loss as to how people manage to keep these phpBB boards clean, particularly when nothing seems to stop the account registrations of the spammers.

Leave it with me a bit and I'll see if I can sort it out.

Re: Smart things

You'd need to have something in between the two, such as the IFTT service or some of your own code - there's no way to directly link the two, unfortunately. The AlertMe / Hive sensors chat over a protocol called Zigbee, which neither the Echo or Samsung systems support. Although... if you're using H...

Re: Registration and Activation

After an incredibly long period of time, I've finally managed to get a reasonable spam prevention system working on this site. The version of phpBB I'm using right now is pre-release, so there are a few rough edges, but it means you can now sign up and post without requiring a lengthy wait for me to...

Re: API Account Locked

I've recently got a second hand hub . Which is at the moment surplus , but would be useful if I could use it as clone of my already existing hub . Achieving two sources for doorbell and alarms ..does anybody have a clue how and if this is possible ? Don't think this would be do-able. The API has su...

Re: AlertMe Subscription

Same here - can't find the original date, but they stopped charging me quite some time ago as well. I'd happily pay a nominal fee for the service as-is; still use it every day, but I guess the costs associated with collecting the cash must outweigh the benefits by now. Particularly since everything ...

Re: Is this the end?

Just seen these; I didn't notice any problems at my end, though I've not been into the portal for a few days. Alerty seemed to keep working for me just fine, but then I was only turning on and off a few plugs.

Re: Camera still working?

Hmm, sounds like a streaming issue - though difficult to tell from whose end it would be. I haven't used the camera recording function of AlertMe in a while as the quality of the recordings was a bit low, so I can't really advise - ah, except I will have old recordings on there. I'll try tomorrow an...

Re: Samsung SmartThings

Sorry to see you go, terry, but totally understandable. They've got a good team working on Hive at British Gas, but I get your frustrations. I'm locked in to the original system because of the flexibility it gives with assigning actions to devices, which just isn't replicated in the BG product at th...
