Control your Homey with this widget on your Garmin watch
- Get some Homey details on the widget main view
- Scroll through your favorite devices and flows and let you show device details (ui capabilities)
- Toggle switches, press buttons and start flows
This alpha version uses the Athom WebAPI without an official API key for now. To connect to your Homey, you need the following information:
- Homey Cloud ID: Go to Homey Developer Tools and copy the value of “cloudId”.
- Authorization token: Go to Homey Developer Tools, enable the Chrome Console (F12), open the ‘Network’ tab. Look for the authorization header. It contains “Bearer 123…456”.
Fill this values into the app settings (use Garmins ConnectIQ app on your mobile to change the settings).
HowTo set app settings: Changing Connect IQ App Settings - Wiki - Connect IQ - Garmin Forums
The widget connects periodically every 30 minutes to Athom cloud service to keep the session token valid. If your watch has no connection to WiFi or your mobile (BTLE), the session token will become obsolete after some time and you have to get a new token.
This app is in alpha status. Please report issues in this thread and please don’t write reviews if you have questions.
The widget itself uses a minimal amount of memory. But the JSON results from the WebAPI are really extensive. Homey devices with many capabilities can occour a crash caused by the memory limit of your device. Only Garmin deviced with a available widget memory of 64kB or less are affected.
For this reason, only devices with more than 64kB widget memory are currently supported.
For details check the compatibility list of the app or select your device on: Reference Guides
