    Yup, and I know I"m late, but I got about 99% done last night. I may release a version and have people "alpha" test it. I locked out one of my accounts doing some testing. I hope to get a lot more done tonight and released shortly after.

    That's good news. I've been using the Bed Detection notification via Withings > IFTTT > Homeseer for over a year now and it's sort of hit or miss. I'm not sure if that's on Withings end, IFTTT, or the IFTTT to Homeseer link, but I suspect the later. Hoping the plugin link will make it more reliable and I appreciate your efforts!

    Awesome news. I think I know what I'm getting myself for Christmas

I've been using the Sleep mats for a while now with IFTTT integration to turn on/off virtual devices in HS and that works pretty well for me and is actually reasonably quick but once in a while the integration fails and HS thinks I'm in bed when I'm not.

    The main use case for me for this integration is occupancy sensing. i have my HS setup to assume that the house is occupied for the first 9 hours after any (non pet visible) internal motion sensor was triggered and no external door was opened. At 9 hours and 1 minute, the house assumes it is no longer occupied. This generally works until I happen to sleep in or until I'm sick and I'm in bed for more than 9 hours, no external doors have been opened, and no motion sensors have seen any activity. It's quite annoying to be in bed when the house goes into unoccupied mode...turning off the heat/ac, randomizing lights (when dark out), playing random someone-is-home-sounds on the whole-house-speakers etc. The sleep mat integration allows me to add another condition to my occupancy sensor logic so that it never automatically changes to unoccupied when someone is in the bed.

    My secondary use case was for automatic night-lights...when someone exits the bed at night the house goes into sleep-walk mode for 10 minutes (or until that someone returns to the bed)...with sleep-walk mode causing lights in rooms to all become motion activated but to only turn on at a very low dim.

    None of this really requires a super fast response time and IFTTT (pro) isn't crazy slow or anything but I'd think that with IFTTT out of the mix, there'd be less chance of a lost in-bed or out-of-bed notification.

It's also be nice to get off of the the IFTTT teet since it isn't free anymore if you have more than 3 applets out there.

    I am loving the Withings system, but to be honest, so far the only item I think is valuable to HA is the sleep mat now that we will have enter/exit bed.

    Please feel free everyone to show your use cases in another thread for the other devices!
    frank,

    i have also 2 sleepmats (one is on the way) do you have to seperate mail adresses setup or can you connect them to the same account and assign them to a family member? Btw what is the status of the sleepmat integration in your plugin?

    Just curious if the pad detection is working now. I’m considering buying the pad. I really like the idea for triggering bed detection.

    i had a couple other questions,
    -if you have two (like you mentioned). Can you detect both individually, with HS?
    - if I just used for detection(not sleeping benefits), can I put one pad cross ways(save money) - then be able to check if person A is in the bed, or person B, or both?

    As to updating to HS4, They've said that HS3 plugins should work and it is a lot of work to maintain a HS3 and HS4 version of a plugin so for right now I'm not sure I will do an HS4 version.
    I think the response time from IFTTT is acceptable but highly variable. The response time I get from the sensor with my Polyglot Nodeserver is pretty fast for a cloud service.

    Hi Frank! How is the sleep mat sensation? I wonder because I have some back problem.

    you put the mat under the mattress? Is it sensitive enough like that? Is the api response instant?

    and will you update the plugin to hs4?


    thanks
