Device not listed using rest api

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I'm using HC2.


I recently added a Fibaro multisensor (the eye) to a part of the house with (possibly) slightly worse mesh coverage than the rest of the house. The connection test from the device indicates sufficient signal, though (green light mostly).


Using the app or the web UI I can get readings from the device, but using the REST API the new devices are not included in the JSON output. My 4 other identical sensors are.


Does anyone have any idea of what would cause this? Browsing through the device parameters in the Web UI I cannot pinpoint any differences in config that seem relevant.


So I'm thinking it's connectivity related, but the connection test all seem to report OK.


(I've tried with another spare sensor I have also - same result)


Am I missing something obvious?

Hi @YngveL ,


I suppose that you are trying to get all same devices by filtering using type? Fibaro has changed type for newer eyes and is com.fibaro.FGMS001v2 while for older ones is com.fibaro.FGMS001. Maybe you can try to filter devices by baseType instead?

  • Hi @Sankotronic !


    I'm actually just doing a curl call and parsing the resulting JSON data using 'jq'. The Fibaro HomeCenter 2 GUI tells me the sensor have ID numbers from 300 and up to 305, and even have updated readings for the sensors (motion/light/sensor/temp)

    BUT - calling the REST API  doesn't return any values for devices 300 to 305 at all:

    curl -s -u user:password


    Same goes when calling them one by one:


    curl -s -u user:password   (and up to 305)



    It just seems odd the HC2 UI has data, while the REST API doesn't .....
