The API has been decoded and it's very easy for one of us to create a plugin for it.

If any of our existing devs have August locks and fancy the plugin, go ahead.

I really want to do it to accompany my Zwave Lock plugin but I don't have any August locks - anyone want to work with me on testing blind if I go ahead?

PS, there's s Zwave August Pro lock announced, due in Autumn/Fall, but only through pro installers.

Re: [Feature Request] August Connect Integration

The developer's post is helpful - the other projects I've seen attempt to unlock via the bluetooth protocol rather than using the Cloud API through a Connect. I'd be willing to support building the plugin. I'm surprised there aren't more DIY projects out there that could be harvested using the API's found in the post, which gives me pause that it's not complete. My first read of the login process - I have questions. Where is the email address used in the Login to obtain the access token?

I also don't see a method for subscribing to updates, so the plugin would have to use polling to obtain lock status.

I have a August lock + Doorbell, which might have slightly different API's than the lock + connect. The Doorbell replaces the need for a connect.

Re: [Feature Request] August Connect Integration

I suspect you set identifier: to "email:abc@gmail.com"

Or, "phone:abc@gmail.com"

Re: [Feature Request] August Connect Integration

Maybe you can help me in a proof of concept to prove that this is workable before I start plugin development. I've been trying to emulate a August client using Postman. Every time you add the API keys to the header, the service stops providing error feedback. I assume I'm not doing something right with the header or request body for the initial session creation. Are you able to do this successfully?

Hi Mike.

I don't have any August devices and I've no idea what Postman is...?
