In order to control and monitor devices, the user must discover and add the devices to their account.

Some devices (zigbee, insteon, etc) require a gateway, in that case the user must first discover and link a gateway and then they can start discovering the devices to join the gateway

 

Discovering Gateways and WiFi devices

Request:

curl -X POST \
  https://api.smartenit.io/v2/devices/discover \
  -H 'Authorization: Bearer YOUR_ACCESS_TOKEN'

 

Response:

Linking the Gateways and WiFi devices to your account

Once a Gateway or Wi-Fi device is discovered it can be linked to a specific account. 

Request:

curl -X POST \
  https://api.smartenit.io/v2/devices/link \
  -H 'Authorization: Bearer YOUR_ACCESS_TOKEN' \
  -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
  -d '{
	"deviceId": "5759a2c6fb73933d7b513bf2"
}'

Discover and link devices through a Gateway

For devices that do not connect to a cloud directly, a gateway is required. Once you have added the gateway and are ready to discover ( also called pair, link, and join) the devices, follow the steps below.

 

A single method is used for discovery regardless of the protocols of the interfaces attached to the gateway. The interfaces currently supported are: Smartenit USB-CID (ZigBee-HA), Smartenit ZOE-VIPD (ZigBee-SE), Smartenit ZBPLM (ZigBee-HA, INSTEON and X10) and Smartenit EZIComm (INSTEON and X10). With this in mind, the endpoint for devices will have an entry for the gateway which will have a component per interface.

A gateway with two different interfaces (ZBP CID and VIPD) will have two different components. Each component will have a Discover processor which can be used as follow:

curl -X GET -k
    --header 'Accept: application/json'
    --header 'Content-Type: application/json'
    --header 'Authorization: Bearer YOUR_ACCESS_TOKEN'
    -d'{"duration":250}'
  
Notefor Local API substitute with https://YOUR_GW_LOCAL_DOMAIN:54443/v2/

 

Response:

 

{
    "code" : 200,
    "success" true
}

 

The discover method has to be sent to each interface in the device if it is desired to be in Discovery mode. When a zigbee or Insteon device joins the gateway interface, then it will be automatically added to the users account.
