Getting the IDs of your flaps, feeders and pets

There are (at least) three ways, sorted in “descending convenience order”:

  • Use the surepy tool (uses the same library as this integration) from @benleb. A Python tool to get your token simply by running a single command (check surepy --help for the exact command).
  • Use the from @rcastberg to fetch the IDs from the Sure Petcare API. With the default setting, the IDs will be written as JSON to ~/.surepet.cache.
  • Visit and log in with your Sure Petcare credentials. Open the developer tools in Chrome/Firefox, switch to the “Network” tab and refresh the page. Now look for calls to start (pets, <household id> and others are also possible, but start shows you all information at once). Click on this call and in the JSON displayed you will find all the needed IDs.
