    Sorry if I’m asking a question you may have already talked about, have you reached out to the developers of the API?

    LOL, the API is run by Chamberlain/Liftmaster/Craftsman. They DO NOT want us doing 3rd party development and have historically changed things on purpose with the intent of blocking us. The plugin we have today is because of reverse engineering of their android app.

    Reaching out to them would do nothing. It's a cat & mouse game really. They change, I update. This happens about once a year recently and it takes a good month to settle out and address any bugs introduced with all the changes. They did this same sort of thing last August and the year before as well.

    If you're patient I'll get it all handled, just gonna take some time.

      No worries, I have no doubt you will figure something out. Just find it strange that they would target third party developers, I looked in their myQ app and they advertise that they work with IFTTT, Wink, Alarm.com....etc so are they just targeting Homeseer?

      They don’t receive any subscription revenue from users with their app so why not just maintain the API and let 3rd party developers create and maintain the UI for their product?

        They used to charge a fee for that integration, not sure if they still do.

          Looks like they still charge, but have lowered the price and made it free temporarily. They call it premium service. Looks like they've dropped it to $1/mo, it used to be $9/mo
