However, today everything changed. I was googling around a bit and found out that integration to Adax Wifi heaters existed! I was wondering how can that be, because there’s no API available. I opened the Adax app from my Android phone and found out that Adax had opened up their API for public use! Just magnificent customer service from a Norwegian company.
There’s now an official Adax integration included in Home Assistant from version 2021.08. Configuration is as simple as before:
Create a secret password and get your account ID from Adax app and add integration from Home Assistant integrations UI. All done and it’s working great.
However, all the heaters are grouped into a same entity (because located in a same room). It could be better if the heaters were separate entites.. don’t know yet, time will tell that one 🙂
Anyhow, now that the heaters can be integrated into HA, I really can recommend them! Nice and clean glass panels with Home Assistant Control, what could be better?
Ps. by checking the WiFi device name, it seems that Adax is using ESP8266 modules 🙂
