Flipr is a smart pool monitor that publishes data to the cloud via SigFox. Flipr sends data like pH, chlorine or temperature to a cloud server on a regular basis in order to monitor your pool. This integration gives you access to this information on Home Assistant in addition to the vendor’s smartphone application.
There is currently support for the following information within Home Assistant:
- Chlorine Level
- Water Temperature
- Red OX Level
- Last measure date
- pH Status Indicator
- Chlorine Status Indicator
- Battery Level
You will need to use the standalone app for this device to register a username and password.
