Gardena App for Homey with official integration: "Rate limited" issue

Yeahhh lets start another topic about the updated app and the homey newsletter :+1: verry handy :+1:

+1 same error for me

Same here… interesting that they don’t have managed to get API calls correct as they have an official connection now… :thinking:

That’s what you get when a app is a official company supported app made by a prutser :joy:

For now just use a ifttt connection and what to the number hit around 10 after the . :wink:

It’s a fraction slower but works flawlessly

Thanks, the thread is about a different issue though, even if someone has started commenting on the “Rate limited” issue lately :slight_smile:

U are correct. We CAN open 37 Google Home topics with almost the same questions but we can’t open a Gardena (specific rate limit issue) topic?
Onzin! U did it the right way!

lot has changed for a former moderator :rofl:

@RoyWissenburg for moderator!
It’s fun to do Roy. Athom is organizing BBQ’s for moderators all the time where money is no issue at all.
U also get a lot of friends when being a moderator so why not ask for the job?

Here’s a photo from the last one

I do appreciate BBQ and moderators. Based on the posts on the subject I’m assuming there are no moderators in the forum since this is in no way relevant to this thread? :wink:

Edit: Fixed a typo

U must be the first who appreciates moderators!
Sorry.

I have the same issue:

Tried the „repair“, after that it looked ok for some seconds but then devices get failure again.

Tried repair again, had to authorize again w/o effect…

I deleted the app, re-installed it, re-authorized now getting „Rate Limit“ error…

It sounds like Athom is using a single API key for all Homey users. Given that the Gardena API has very unforgiving rate limits (at most one call every 15 minutes with a total maximum of 3000 per month), that’s not going to work.

Contact Athom through the support form, there’s nothing other users can do about this.

Now it’s a long time since the the 2.0.1 update with the official integration and still no fix for the Rate Limited issue… What is the issue? If you have a official API connection with gardena/husqvarna then this should be fixed or what is the issue here???

Can we get some feedback from Athome developers or forum moderator?

Then you have to contact them directly
