wirelesstag.net, wireless sensor tags. anyone try these?

I'm looking for a good solution to monitor temperature in a few rooms, plus maybe some motion sensors attached to gates. I came across http://wirelesstag.net

The price is good, and they have a very robust set of APIs and sensors.

Anyone try these out? Doesn't look like any mention of them on the boards.

Thanks.

Yeah, I tried them and am somewhat sure my discussion about them is in an old post on here somewhere.

They worked well for a short time and I was excited. Then they started dropping off the network. I contacted the manufacturer and they sent more. Same thing. After that, their advice was something like, "It's not a big deal, just a software thing. All you need to do is disassemble the tag and then remove and reinsert the battery."

Gee, that will be a big comfort when the one on my dog's collar stopped working and I never knew that he dug out of the backyard a few hours ago.

I asked for a refund and they told me to return them. I did so, and they never responded to me again. No refund. No response to my many emails, nothing. They still have my $100+ and I still have nothing.

Just thought I'd say thanks to those that went before and provided a warning. They really look good from their web site, but the info here waves me off.

Wireless Tags - Let's Revisit This

I just ordered the motion/temperature tag and the receiver unit. It cost me about $50.00 for everything. My goal was to be able to monitor temperature in a Hot Tub.

Ordering was easy, delivery just a bit slow but not unreasonable. I contacted customer support and was able to get a person speaking broken english. He looked up my order and was able to confirm that it would go out the next day. I received numerous shipping updates and was impressed with their automation. This feels like a small startup company but I see that they have been around for awhile so they must be doing something right.

I received the order in a surprisingly small package. The setup was straight forward and simple through my iPhone.

I put the tag into a small water-tight Tupperware style container, tossed it into the hot tub and it has worked flawlessly ever since. I am getting good solid temperature readings (after an easy calibration) and I get a motion notification when the HotTub pump stirs the water when the heating cycle begins. At first, I thought this was a bit silly but have decided it's nice to know the schedule (for heating the spa) I have set up in Indigo is firing perfectly.

My next goal will be to figure out a way for Indigo to poll the tag data. All calls to tags are done through their web server. I don't think there is a way to talk directly to the receiver or the tag... it's all done through their server.

They have some documentation about the API at http://wirelesstag.net/apidoc.html but I don't really know much about AJAX or JSON so I have hit my competency level.

I was able to create a web page and store it on my web site. When I pull the page up I get the the temperature in Fahrenheit and display it on the web page. I will post my code below.

What would be nice is if I could issue a curl command within Indigo to snag that number generated by my web page then add it to a variable. I will be working on that but if you have the JSON/AJAX/CURL chops perhaps you could assist.

I think there is a lot of potential here. Care to dive in?

Wireless Tags can be found at: http://wirelesstag.net

Here is the obscured code from my two PHP pages. I cobbled this together from WirelessTags documentation.

This page presents just the number....

Code: Select all
<?php require('HotTubTagTemp.php'); ?>
<div class="TheTemp">
<?php echo $TheTemp;?>
</div>


This is the page on the code which generates the data...
Code: Select all
<!--
This page is a support page for Indigo Home Automation. It connects Wiresless Tags
temperature info and makes it available when it is called via a CURL command
and places it into a variable on the Rosi Server
