Sensi thermostat plug-in
« on: February 10, 2015, 01:27:06 pm »
I recently had my furnace replaced which sucked.  Part of the installation included a Sensi thermostat which is controllable via phone or web.  Has anyone heard of this or any options/projects to create a Vera plug-in for this type of thermostat?

I bought a pair of them - haven't installed yet. I heard rumors of an API (but I think only for biz partners and not end user) but I don't think their plan is for end user to be able to bring it into their home automation just yet but rather just use their app.

I'm working on a plugin for the Emerson Sensi right now.  I should have something available for beta testing in the next week or so.

Sounds good. Any progress? I assume you're doing some sort of trickery as Emerson has that thing locked down pretty good.

I'm interested too. This is a great little thermostat for people that don't have a c-wire but would like app/remote control. Unfortunately, it doesn't (yet) talk to the Vera.

There is a java api wrapper.

Sorry all.  I didn't get notifications that anyone had replied to me.

I have a Vera plug-in for the Sensi that's been running for the last 5-6 months without any issues.  However, I've been totally unable to make it available on the app store.  I went round and around with their support and finally gave up.  I'm happy to make it available as a zip file for manual install for anyone that's interested.

Yes please. I have this thermostat too and would love to add it to my Vera. I was going to switch it out to one of the Trane Z-Wave units that I sell but I would like to test out the Sensi too.

Very interested in this as well. I was happy to be able to include it with Echo but the lack of Vera support really kills most functionality for me. This would be great. very interested in what you are using that works.
