Garadget Platform no longer working

I have 2 devices in my configuration.yaml that control my garage doors with the Garadget Platform. It stopped working today and I’m seeing a lot of timeouts to however I can connect to that host with the correct port with no issues from the same machine. Any ideas? It says the domain was actually setup but took 12 seconds, however the devices are no longer showing up in my dev-state area. Is this timeout configurable?

I’m having the same issue. Anyone have an update on this? I’ve also noticed HA is no longer updating the “Home” app on my IOS device. It just keeps showing all lights and switches as “updating”

I figured it out, you have to generate a new token. See these two pages.

That did work, thanks. Whats odd is I had my username & password configured and it just suddenly stopped working. I guess they disabled this and didn’t let anyone know. Just grab the new access_token from the Garadget’s site or and update your configuration.yaml

I take that back, its no longer working and continues to timeout with the same error. Does anyone know if the maintainers read these topics?

Any fix on this. Mine is doing the same thing.

No and unfortunately I had to abandon the platform…

My app still works fine but the HA integration seems to have completely broken once i updated to .84 was intermittent in .83. I am gonna make a post over on the garadget forums and see if anyone has info over there.

Looks like they do have MQTT support. So I think that would work for me. May try that.

Hey guys, been looking into the garadget. Any updates on whether or not this is functioning again please?

works fine using mqtt. faster response times compared to cloud platform, but a little bit fiddlier to set up.

You can still use the access token method. It works good and is not hard to set up.
