I have kept the interface as simple as possible:
To get started:
You need to obtain an API key from Linktap. There is a button on the Configure App page
that can obtain a new API key for you if you don’t already have one.
Just enter you LinkTap Username (this is not your email address) and LinkTap Password then click on the “Get a new API key” button. If it is succesful, the new API key will be entered into it’s field and the settings will be saved. The password is only required to obtain the key so it is not saved.
Note: If you get a new API Key it will invalidate the previous one so any thirdpart app that was using it will stop working. Therefore, if you have an existing key then enter it manually.
If you have manually entered the API Key, tap on Save Changes.
You can then add your LinkTap devices through the normal Homey method.
The app will show all your LinkTap valves on all your hubs that are connected to the account.
Note: the API to get devices has a minimum interval of 5 minute so the app caches the data to ensure it is always available. The same API is also the only way to get the current alarms and status, so it is polled every 5 minutes. The side effect is that newly added valves or hubs could take up to 5 minutes to appear when adding devices.
To use the Instant mode, open the Advanced Settings screen and enter the required details.
Save the settings once you have them as you want.
Select Instant Mode from the pick list and the command will be sent with all the settings to activate the relay.
