IFTTT - Watering Schedule

Netro Inc
Updated at 2020-09-11 04:12:00 UTC

Dear Christophe, 

Netro IFTTT returns local time for convenience, where the time zone is determined by your device address. The API returns

1. date: local date

2. start_time: local start time, please use only the time part and ignore the date and time zone part if any. 

3. end_time: local end time, similar with above. 

We have checked the API, it seems OK. For example, you have a schedule on 2020/09/10, from 06:00am to 06:28am, the API returns:

{"device":"Pontaillac ","zone":1,"date":"2020-09-10","start_time":"2020-09-10T06:00:00.000Z","end_time":"2020-09-10T06:28:00.000Z","source":"SMART","status":"EXECUTED","meta":{"id":94827648,"timestamp":1599710400}}

Please note that "2020-09-10T06:28:00.000Z" is not UTC time, only use the "06:28:00" part, although system may add date and timezone part automatically. 

Please let us know if you have more concerns. 

What about your API ?

Hi Christophe,

You must be already aware but if not, they have published an open API.

Hopefully, by the time you read this, you might have moved to Home Assistant and could help me out

Although that I'm still hoping Netro will start understanding their appliance/app is only a smart part of a smart home ecosystem and start integrating with Home Assistant. Even huge vendors like Tuya, have understood that this is essential for most Home Automation Enthusiast. 

For the time being, some folks have used the API to get some data to home assistant

I believe a lot of us are happy with the appliance, but aren't looking at it often enough. Result in my case at least that my whisperer was out for more than a month. This could have been avoided if we had an integration to Home Assistant who would have alerted me.

So please Netro, do the extra mile !

Very low humidity given by my sensor but no watering planned
