  • BMW Connected integration

    Has anyone out there managed to hook into BMW Connected to bring data about their car into Homeseer? I have an i3 and want to get the battery charge data in Homeseer to use along with my solar PV and Tesla Powerwall data.
    There are examples in Github for Home Assistant in Python, Powershell etc but nothing in vb.net and I’ll struggle with those languages.

    If you have Node-RED and MQTT in HomeSeer and while you wait for a better solution, take a look at this : https://flows.nodered.org/node/node-red-contrib-car-bmw

    Edit : And add it to this post here : https://forums.homeseer.com/forum/ho...ers-using-mqtt

      I also have an i3 and a Plug-in would be wonderful!

        You need two components to make it happen

        1. BMW API. While BMW didn't release it officially someone reversed engineered it and published it here with a very good narrative

        https://github.com/edent/BMW-i-Remote#get-vehicle-data

        2. Big5 plug-in for HS3 that deals with APIs. Big5 dedicated forum has a bunch of API enthusiasts (myself included) who are volunteering help to adopt new APIs in case you need help.

          Thanks but iRemote was superceeded by Connected. Big5 sounds interesting but if I can I’ll write my own (free) scripts, assuming I can figure out how to do it in vb.net.

            I have made some progress in that I have a python script that works. It gets an authentication token and uses it to query the BMW api then writes my car's data to a text file. I then have a vb.net script to read it into HS3.
            But I don't like it. I'd like to convert it to vb.net from python but have so far failed. I've asked for help in the forum here:

            When I get further I will post it here.
