I purchased recently a Netatmo Weatherstation and tried to integrate it into my openHAB installation.
After creating the .things file and “setting it alive”, I get this error in the logs:
' netatmo:netatmoapi:home' changed from INITIALIZING to OFFLINE (COMMUNICATION_ERROR): Netatmo Access Failed, will retry in 5400 seconds.
After making sure that my .things file is correct, I looked into the source code.
There I find
// I use a connection to Netatmo API using PartnerAPI to ensure that API is reachable getPartnerApi().partnerdevices();
I guess by this the API call https://dev.netatmo.com/api/getpartnerdevices is meant.
But this API is not supported by Netatmo any longer (https://dev.netatmo.com/apidocumentation) and does not work.
So from my point of view the bridge handler will never be created because of the call to the cancelled API and so the whole binding will not work.
