insteon-api Build Status

a node package for the Insteon REST API


Overview

insteon-api is a node package for the Insteon REST API. The goal of this package is to mirror our existing home-controller package. This will reduce the effort of moving your existing code to the new Hub.

Only the new Insteon Hub (2245) is supported.

Table of Contents

Features

  • Device and Gateway Info
  • Linking and Group Control
  • Scene Control
  • Lighting Control
  • Thermostat Control
  • Sensor Control

Getting Started

Install

Install via npm:

npm install insteon-api

Example

Here is a simple example to turn on your light.

var InsteonAPI = require('insteon-api');

var api = new InsteonAPI({key: process.env.INSTEON_API_KEY});

api.on('connect', function() {
  api.light(12345).turnOn()
  .then(function(rsp) {
    console.log('Turned On: ', rsp);
  });
});

api.on('error', function(err) {
  console.log('Error: ', err);
});

api.connect({
 username: process.env.INSTEON_USERNAME,
 password: process.env.INSTEON_PASSWORD
});

API

InsteonAPI

require('insteon-api')(options)

Add require statement to the app to access the InsteonAPI class. You provide your API key to create an api object for your developer account.

Options

  • key the Insteon API key (required)
  • secret the Insteon API secret (required for auth code only)

Example

var InsteonAPI = require('insteon-api');

var api = new InsteonAPI({
  key: process.env.INSTEON_API_KEY,
  secret: process.env.INSTEON_API_SECRET // Optional
});

The InsteonAPI class inherits EventEmitter

api.connect(options) or api.auth(options)

Connects the api object to a user account. There are three ways to authenticate: user credentials, an authorization code, or refresh token. The authorization code and refreshing an authorization code token requires the secret option be set on the api object.

User Credential Options

  • username the Insteon App user name
  • password the Insteon App password

Authorization Code Options

  • code the authorization code received from Insteon.

Refresh Option

  • refreshToken the refresh token for a Insteon App user.

When the 'connect' event is emitted the connection is established. If there is a problem connecting, the 'connect' event will not be emitted, the 'error' event will be emitted with the exception.

Event: 'connect'

Emitted when user authentication is complete.

Event: 'command'

Emitted when an command is received. The argument command will be the command object.

Callback arguments

  • command received from gateway

Event: 'error'

Emitted when an error occurs.

Callback arguments

  • error the error that occurred
