API? Link to Homeseer


#1

I am not a programmer. I’ve done a little with C# and some .net, but I’m a novice.

I have a homeseer home automation server all setup and running. My hope is to integrate Mycroft into that. I want to be able to say “wakeword, turn on kitchen light” or “turn on the kitchen light” and have mycroft send that to homeseer, and boom light comes on…

I don’t really even know where to start. Is there some kind of documentation I need to find from homeseer, and if so, what am I looking for. lol. and is there an API from mycroft, I would use?

I know most of you are probably thinking, wow, he shouldn’t be trying this, but at the same time… You gota start somewhere.


#2

After a quick look at the Homeseer website I did not find any hints for a public API.
I would probably go for IFTTT (there were already some requests for integraion IFTTT into Mycroft). Anyway this will require programming skills in Python…

EDIT: just found the comments in another thread Question about changing default skills
looks like Homeseer has a simple Web-API (REST). And there are at least two Python modules
