Re: AlertMe have been in contact!

The other options I considers - using Pi and Zigbee modem with James Saunders code to create a bridge between Alertme ZB protocol and proper ZB protocol - using Pi and Zigbee modem with James Saunders code to create API that Alexa can drive directly. Keep in touch if you get anywhere with this. I'v...

Re: AlertMe have been in contact!

Just to let you all know that I had my Hive system installed last week. As Noisyvoid says, there is no contract or subscription to Hive Live, so nothing extra to pay. The new thermostat is a clever piece of kit which communicates directly with the receiver attached to the boiler and can operate as a...

Re: AlertMe have been in contact!

On the plus side, I'm loving the Hive Thermostat. Smartplug is a smartplug but good that it works with Amazons echo. I'm rather looking forward to this bit - now that I've considered it, the thermostat is something that I may well find very handy. However I'm a bit disappointed in the other sensors...

British Gas have been in contact!

Just when I thought it was safe to migrate my devices... I'm told via Twitter that "customers affected should be receiving an email regarding their options", but no reply on whether there will be a follow-up to the message below, because there aren't a lot of options presented here: https://i.imgur....

I have not received anything from AlertMe.
Drop them a line - support@alertme.com. They were very helpful.

Re: AlertMe have been in contact!

I would consider switching to Hive if the AlertMe sensors would work with it but apparently they don't. Therefore there is no reason to stick with AlertMe/Hive. Yes, I think they're missing a trick here. I'm taking up their offer because I'm interested in playing with the kit and can migrate my exi...

Re: The Alerty App

I’m trying to find out about this myself. Safe and Secure is no longer actively sold by British Gas, but they do still have a number to call to order additional devices - not that I’ve tried calling it, mind you. I have a S&S system which I used for testing the app with (as has a friend) and we’ve h...

Re: The End is Nigh

Ah, checked my inbox and found my email from AlertMe. It's a good offer; I think I'll be taking them up on it and seeing how it fits with me. What a shame I won't be able to use the existing devices I have, though. I have asked if the British Gas Safe & Secure system will stay alive - the two were c...

Re: The End is Nigh

Oh, no! I've not received anything, though my system is up and running and my mailing address is correct. It's a real shame, I've loved using and tinkering with this system over the years. Is there any contact information on the letter you received? I wouldn't mind dropping them a line. It's certain...

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!
