    Looks like more home automation system integrations have been released for NuHeat based on their open API.

    I’d love to have this for HomeSeer. I’d gladly pay for a plug-in.

    I'm also interested in a NuHeat plug in, but in the meantime, was able to use IFTTT (the site, not the plug in) to do the simple but useful commands of putting the thermostat in away mode when I'm gone and out of away mode when I'm home. No hardware is required. IFTTT allows 3 free applets. This will use two.
    Here is how I did it:
    1. Set up an IFTTT account and specifically the email service that will trigger events from your HS email address.
    2. Create your own applets. One triggers on the email subject #home and the other triggers on the email subject #away. The "then" controls the nuheat commands for setting the thermostat group to Home or Away.
    3. Create events in HS3 which will send an email to IFTTT address from your HS3 machine address with the appropriate subject #home or #away
    4. Trigger those HS3 events by your alarm away or disarming your alarm away (or other method). I have events that when the alarm is disarmed from away mode in the cold months the floor heat is turned on. Whenever the alarm is armed away, the floor heat is turned off (away mode).

    It's not a plug in, but gets to most of the functionality I need for saving some energy.

    There is good support for this stat in Hubitat. You can use the hubitat elevation plugin to connect to the hubitat and control the stats (and other hubitat devices) from homeseer. The community support in hubitat is excellent, and being able to integrate them into HS gives us the best of both worlds.

    Of course, if someone wants to write a native HS plugin that would be great too, but I wanted to point out there are other ways of solving the problem.

    I’m still interested in a plugin for the NuHeat Signature and may be willing to help fund the development of said plugin.

    Also interested.
    have 11 zones of heated floors and would gladly replace my OJ microline thermostats if a PI was available.
    Especially with the API already available:

    I have a Nuheat Signature set up and am pretty happy with it - I can't 'read' what it's set to in HS, but I can set it to Home and Away via HS easily. I find this is enough for me for now.

    Here's what I've done;
    1. Get the stat connected, Wifi etc. Set up Nuheat account online
    2. Create a Group online at Nuheat and put your Signature into it. Home/Away only works for grouped stats.
    3. IFTTT - create an account, add NuHeat and Webhooks as services to it.
    4. Create a new recipe - Webhooks (receive request) if the 'If', Give it a meaningful name such as 'Set Nuheat to Home'
    5. The 'Then' action is Nuheat, Pick 'Set group mode'
    6. Select your newly created group - then set to 'Home'
    That's your action, now we just need to figure out what HTTP request we need to send to IFTTT to trigger this.

    Go back to Home on IFTTT - then click the Webhooks icon. From that page, click Documentation on the top right hand corner of the page. That will give you your 'key' - which, is key.

    Now in HS, create an event, and the event action is to run a script. And here's the script I use (I have obfuscated my key so you don't mess with my heated floors for fun). I save this as a .vb script.

    Code:
    Function Main(parm as object)
    dim result as object
    result=hs.GetURL("http://maker.ifttt.com/trigger/Webhook_LaundryFloor_Heating_Resume/with/key/<insert the key from the Webhooks page here>","/",TRUE,80)
    return(result)
    End Function
    Now set this script to run whenever you want the Stat to be set to Home. And do another recipe/trigger for Away

    Set up a schedule on the stat for normal day to day usage, and it will follow that when set to Home - and set to 41F indefinitely when set to Away.

    Hope this helps someone. No need to add IFTTT PI integration to HS, just simple http requests being used here.

    simplextech, if you are still reselling these let me know. I believe I need to acquire two of them.
    At the moment I can't get them any cheaper than what Amazon has them for. Hard to compete with Amazon volume pricing. I'm not working on plugins currently due to the HS4 release and issues. If I did a plugin now it would ONLY be for HS3 and there would NOT be any free upgrade to HS4 because I don't even know if I will be developing for HS4 as the UI change also changed the entire device structure.

    I'm not sure if it helps any but I have written a nodeserver for the ISY Polyglot system and I'm also working with Remote Technologies Inc now aka RTI on professional HA installations and I'll be developing a driver for RTI in the near future.

    I'm really hoping one of the coding experts here can create a NuHeat PI. I would definitely pay for it.

    I'm right there with you. Just had floor heater installed and got the Signature thermostat. If you go to the nuheat website and setup your thermostat, you can set up schedules for weekdays and weekends and have multiple times for setting the thermostat.

    I never did get IFTTT to work, but I don't consider it a reliable option given the problems people have had with IFTTT and Homeseer.

    I would love a plugin, but no one has jumped on this to make one since Simplextech abandoned it. If there were a way to do it with scripting, I would try that, but I haven't looked into it.

    ISY is primary an Insteon control system with support for Z-wave as well but primary is Insteon. Polyglot and Nodeserver's are the integration (plugin) mechanism for the system. It's not really like HS or other DIY platforms.
    So would that help with floor heating thermostat integration?

    NuHeat still requires OAuth which requires MyHS. I'm not working on any HS plugins for the time being. The ISY Polyglot Nodeserver is complete and available
    Can OAuth through MyHS be done with scripting instead of plugin? Asking because it seems this plugin idea is dead.
