Direct send json to the metric


During kickstarter question its told that its possible to directly send data to the lametric via internal ip address.

So NOT via IFTTT but directly, lots of people have own steering and dont want to go in the cloud.

Please tell how this is possible

regards & thanks

ps: via mail i asked this question already and not getting the right answer :-(

just referring to IFTTT is not the answer.

To clarify, the KS campaign text states:

LaMetric will have two types of API: cloud API for developers that want to connect their web apps to LaMetric and secure intranet API when LaMetric for those working in closed Intranets networks with strict security rules.

I think he's referring to the "secure intranet API". Is there (or will there be) any thorough documentation on how the APIs work?

Right Jesse :-) Thats shy i bought 2 lametrics. I need the intranet api Btw great devices guys!

very silent on this forum, are the Lametric guys reading any of this?

You can use Intranet URLs in LaMetric Developer. In such case data communication will avoid LaMetric server. 

Update - at the moment LaMetric Developer has an issue when Intranet URL is used(, coming update will fix it soon.

dont you love lametric support, they are so helpfull!

The Intranet URL is not the same thing as was promised in the campaign.

It should be possible to use the LaMetric without connecting to their own servers.  This was also one of the reasons I supported the project and bought two.  I've been stung before by cloud-based appliances that require a sever that, for whatever reason, goes offline some day.

Please don't risk these wonderful devices becoming paperweights - let us control them on the LAN :)

For what it's worth, LaMetric has said that they are focusing first on IFTTT, which makes sense.  IFTTT will give the most added functionality to the most people.  Yes, I know it's not what you are specifically looking for, but more people will use IFTTT than will use Intranet.

That of course doesn't mean you should continue to ask for and demand that promised Intranet option.  Just understand that they will pick the low hanging fruit first.

not much

i understand that there are prio's

lametric is not providing any info or documentation and hardly react to topics! Thats the problem

now we have to find out and hack on our own :-(

IFTTT is nice, but not for the real IOT :-)

Same here, I only bought this because I could feed it content from the private LAN without any data leaving the network.

And to remove any confusion, feeding from the private lan means a local machine pushing content to the device via an API, not telling the device, through the cloud, to fetch content from a local server...

I really want my LaMetric to work without this "cloud" or "Internet" crutch (dependency) too.  This was implied in the campaign and why I bought two.  Please focus on this "feature"

Its about time that lametric comes with a plan, waiting for this for a long time. All promises are not kept.

Also nothing going on here on this forum, I don't understand why they made this forum as they are no reacting to questions and if they do its mostly a very stupid answer.

Not sure what is going on, I will now write a complaint to Kickstarter, lets see if they can help.

Not that I want to be too much of a LaMetric Apologist, but...

1. They did come out with a plan:

2. Not all promises have been kept yet, but they HAVE kept some of them.  When you use hyperbole to say ALL promises are not kept it makes people dismiss your justified unhappiness that LaMetric is moving too slowly.

3a. They created this forum for a way for users to discuss things, something many of us were asking for because using the comments section of KickStarter frankly sucked for discussions like this.  The forums serve a purpose whether LaMetric reads/responds or not.

3b. While they aren't using the forums to their best ability, LaMetrics HAS had a limited presence here and HAS responded to some threads.  So they are reacting to some questions, just not all of 'em, or as fast as we'd prefer.

4. Writing a complaint to Kickstarter will do nothing but waste your time.  Again, it's not that you aren't justified in being upset, just that it will do no good whatsoever.  Kickstarter has very little control over creators even when nothing has been delievered to the end user.  Believe me, I'm in that situation with one project right now and other than KS sending me notes saying essentially: "We're unhappy too... we'll try to contact the creator on your behave..." there isn't much they can do. And this project is one that actually delivered to the backers.

As someone who's backed more than 10 different tech projects on Kickstarter, I suspect this one will follow the same train of most of the others I've backed: It will slowly evolved to the point where it will meet most of the original campaign promises.  It may take a number of months, maybe even more than a year, but I think (hope?) it will eventually get there.

That plan you are mentioning we cant react on, they closed it! and the promises are NOT in there!

I wrote mails and forum postings here (also many others) and no reaction at all! 

You are reacting but you are not lametric (but looks like it). So this forum is not adding anything above kickstarter if Lametric is not reaponding!

so your answer is adding nothing!, and we still me have the same problem, 

i suspect you are working for them :-)
