Recently, a friend of mine bought a HWAM stove with SmartControl (http://www.hwam.com/). The stove connects to your wifi network and can be managed through an app on your phone, notifying you when it needs new wood etc.
We thought it would be nice to be able to control and monitor the stove from Home Assistant. This way, it would be possible to automate the control of the stove and extend the options for the refill notifications.
By now, we consider the custom component finished enough to be published here.
At the moment, there is no platform which reflects the exact options this kind of device needs. Its most basic control option is the “burn level”, which can be set from 0 to 5 to have some control over the intensity of the heat the stove gives off. Then there are the various sensors in the stove like stove temperature, room temperature and oxygen level.
We decided that the best way to represent the stove would be through a fan entity. When switched on, the stove will be set to “Ignition” mode and is ready to be lit. The fan “speeds” will control the burn level.
Apart from this, you can specify a list of monitored variables to be added as sensors for all other parameters the stove exposes. Finally, there are some services which control the way the stove behaves.
You can find the custom component at https://github.com/mvn23/hwam_stove
All feedback is of course appreciated.
