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


My search skills didn’t find another thread on this issue. If this thread duplicates another one please share and I’ll update the start post.

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


And one from the 2017 bbq:


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!

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.


Like this post if you have filled in the support form for this Gardena “Rate Limited” issue.


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
