# Seneye Binding

This binding integrates the Seneye aquarium monitoring system (opens new window).

# Introduction

The seneye monitor monitors what is happening inside your aquarium to ensure that the aquatic life remains healthy. The monitor allows you to continuously track the changes in the water parameters, alerting you to the problems before they affect the fish.

At least one Seneye monitor is required (Home / pond or reef (opens new window)) and the measure results must be synced to the seneye cloud by using a seneye web server (see shop (opens new window), there is one for wifi and one for a wired network) Each monitor is represented by one seneye thing.

# Supported Things

This binding provides one thing type: 'seneye'. You can have multiple seneye devices in your home, just make sure that your aquarium_name is properly set for each seneye thing.

# Discovery

Discovery is not supported, the seneye monitor must be configured manually.
