VeSync Integration


The vesync integration enables you to control Etekcity smart switches and outlets connected to the VeSync App.

The devices must be added to the VeSync App before this integration can discover them.

The following platforms are supported:

  • switch

Supported Devices

This integration supports devices controllable by the VeSync App. The following devices are supported by this integration:

Plugs

  • Etekcity 7 Amp US outlet - ESW01-USA (Round)
  • Etekcity 10 Amp US outlet - ESW10-USA (Round)
  • Etekcity 10 Amp EU outlet - ESW10-EU (Round)
  • Etekcity 15 Amp US outlet - ESW15-USA (Rectangular)
  • Etekcity 2 Plug Outdoor Outlet - ESO15-TB

Switches

  • Etekcity In Wall Smart Switch (EWSL01-USA)

Configuration

To use this integration, all devices must be registered with the VeSync App. Once registration is complete, you can add the VeSync integration by adding the VeSync integration in the configuration section of the frontend and entering your username and password. You can also use the traditional configuration method by adding the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
vesync:
  username: YOUR_USERNAME
  password: YOUR_PASSWORD

Configuration Variables

username

(string)(Required)

Username needed to log in to VeSync.

password

(string)(Required)

Password needed to log in to VeSync.

Services

Service Description
update_devices Poll Vesync server to find and add any new devices

Outlet Exposed Attributes

VeSync outlets will expose the following details for only the smart outlets. Energy monitoring not available for in-wall switches.

Attribute Description Example
current_power_w The present power consumption of the switch in watts. 100
today_energy_kwh The kilowatt hours used by the switch during the previous 24 hours. 0.12
voltage Current voltage of the device 120.32
weekly_energy_total Total energy usage for week starting from Monday 12:01AM in kWh 14.74
monthly_energy_total Total energy usage for month starting from 12:01AM on the first in kWh 52.30
yearly_energy_total Total energy usage for year start from 12:01AM on Jan 1 in kWh 105.25

Extracting Attribute data

In order to get the attributes readings from supported devices, such as energy from outlets or fan attributes, you’ll have to create a template sensor.

In the example below, change all of the vesync_switch‘s to match your device’s entity ID.

Adapted from the TP-Link integration.
