Support for getting alarm time in Device API

Support for getting if an alarm is enabled and the time of the alarm would be a great addition to the Device API. It is now only possible to set the times which allows the LaMetric to be controlled, but my use case is the inverse, where I would like to be able to set the alarm on the LaMetric and use that information to create a wake-up light.

I vote for this. Would be great to be able to query the API to get full information on current alarms.

Did you try this?


Nope that doesn't give anything. Even using the v2 API. The request here is to get the set time for an alarm as well as if the alarm is enabled or not.

Strange...for me it works

Will give another try this evening.... Thanks

still not working. 

V1 API calls don't work for me apparently. Only v2.

are you using curl ?

I'm using the browser. Do you use https://local-lametric-ip/v1 ... ?
What is the response?

That's what I get : { "errors":[ { "message":"Resource not found" } ] }

try with /api/v1/apps/com.lametric.clock

All queries using v1 gives the same results.I can set an alarm through the API using v2 and that's works. But anything v1 doesn't

very strange. No idea why it does not work. I believe the undocumented v1 is used by the Lametric App.

Any updates on this topic?

I, too, would love to just get the current alarm status, i.e. if and for which time an alarm is set. When trying to access the v1 API, however, I'm prompted to provide username and password (at least via web browser); neither empty credentials, nor 'dev' as user and/or my API (v2) key as password let me get past the authorisation request, resulting in the  "message":"Authorization is required" problem already described. Using curl without specifying a user results in the same error..

@mweb: Mind letting us know if You get a credential prompt and if so, how You get past it?

Considering to buy a LaMetric for this specific functionality. Anyone tried this?

$ curl -X GET -u "dev" -H "Accept: application/json" -k \
  https://<device ip address>:4343/api/v2/device/apps/com.lametric.clock
$ Enter host password for user 'dev': <device api key>


or with REST:


GET https://<device ip address>:4343/api/v2/device/apps/com.lametric.clock

Accept: application/json

 Or could anyone share the output it gives?

curl-ing and entering the api key I get { "actions" : { "clock.alarm" : { "enabled" : { "data_type" : "bool", "name" : "enabled", "required" : false }, "time" : { "data_type" : "string", "format" : "[0-9]{2}:[0-9]{2}(?::[0-9]{2})?", "name" : "time", "required" : false }, "wake_with_radio" : { "data_type" : "bool", "name" : "wake_with_radio", "required" : false } }, "clock.clockface" : { "icon" : { "data_type" : "string", "name" : "icon", "required" : false }, "type" : { "data_type" : "string", "format" : "weather|page_a_day|custom|none", "name" : "type", "required" : false } } }, "package" : "com.lametric.clock", "title" : "Clock", "triggers" : { "alarm" : { "snooze" : { "data_type" : "bool", "name" : "snooze" } } }, "vendor" : "LaMetric", "version" : "2.2.17", "version_code" : "54", "widgets" : { "[some-string-i-changed]" : { "index" : 0, "package" : "com.lametric.clock", "settings" : { "_title" : "Uhr" } } } } GET returns Can't connect to [my-lametric-adress]:4343 (certificate verify failed) SSL connect attempt failed error:1416F086:SSL routines:tls_process_server_certificate:certificate verify failed at /usr/share/perl5/LWP/Protocol/ line 50. When trying the latter in my browser, I get a prompt to enter credentials (user/password), with neither of my accound name/email adress combined with the api key resulting in a succesful login
