Presence Rate limit

Post by billdangerous » 09 Mar 2018, 19:29


I'm trying to use the API in order to get information from my Presence Camera. It works like a charm, but I've some problems with rate limiting.
Indeed, according to this page : ... ratelimits, I could perform 500 requests every hour.
My program is performing one request every 10 seconds, so only 360 every hour. After about 1060 requests (so nearly 3 hours), netatmo servers responds with a 403 forbidden.
Am I missing something ?

Thank you in advance,
Best regards,

[Edit: I answered too quickly]
Why do you need to request the API so much ? Please provide more info on your application (PM if you prefer)

Sorry to ask, but why do you need a request every 10sec ?

Why don't you use the webhook to let you know when something happens and treat it ?
