I am buying wifi enabled electric heaters from Adax (Norway). These can be managed via ADAX own app and web-portal.
WIll it be possible to integrate these into Homey in near future? (Have searched the forum and internet without success).
There are other brands (Mills, Delonghi, Fischer, Siemens etc.) which electric raditors are increasingly able to be controlled via Wifi, for use in smart homes, in order to save energy when not in use.
Thus it is a growing market seamingly.
Yes for the Mills a new app has appeared, but not for the Adax heaters unfortunately.
So far I have gathered the following (more or less useful) info about the Adax back-end: It uses TLS 1.2 with either TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA256 or TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA to communicate with the heater and app, respectively. Packets are sent using HTTP over TLS. During communication, one out of two certificates are used Baltimore CyberTrust Root (SHA256 with RSA)
Microsoft IT SSL SHA2 (SHA256 with RSA)
*.azurewebsites.net (SHA256 with RSA).
In addition to communication to a back-end, the heater and app also communicate
directly with each other. This communication is encrypted but appears to
be using a symmetrical cipher with a shared secret as there are no TLS handshake
or plaintext communication. The LAN-chip is probably either an ESP8266 (most likely) or ESP32 (less likely).
Gre8 info. Adax glamox are quite popular even in my region. Would definitely consider them in the future with homey integration. Up untill now I’ve chosen non smart (old Gen) Beha heaters with fibaro switch but if glamox would be integrated in homey that would be no brainer.
Adax has now released the app on the Homey app store:
It looks like I need to update my heaters to firmware >22.214.171.124 for them to be transferred from the Adax app to Homey. The release notes state that in a later version they will add energy consumption to the app as well.
