NEW: Connect a Plaato Keg to Taplist.io (beta)

If you own a Plaato Keg, you can now try connecting it to your Taplist.io account!

When integrated, your keg volumes will be automatically synchronized, and your keg illustrations will reflect that. Here’s an example:

Note: This integration is in beta and may change without warning. This integration is currently available for subscribers only.

How to integrate your Plaato Keg with Taplist.io

Just follow these steps:

  1. Request your auth token(s) from Plaato. Follow instructions here to request your auth tokens from Plaato. You will receive 1 token for every Plaato Keg device you own.
    • It would be awesome if you mention Taplist.io when requesting, so the Plaato folks can keep track of demand.
  2. Configure your tap(s). From the On Tap section of the dashboard, select Configure tap for the tap you want to link to Plaato. Under Advanced settings, paste your API key and click Update.
  3. That’s it! Your keg volumes will be periodically scanned and updated in the Taplist.io UI.

Known issues and limitations

Known issues and limitations for this integration will be posted below.

  • Slow refresh: Because the Plaato API does not currently support streaming updates, we are only able to update keg status on an interval. Currently we check for updates every 10 minutes, although this may change without notice.
  • Volume synchronization only: The integration does not currently support synchronizing metadata (like beverage names) between Plaato and Taplist.io.

Please chime in here if you try the feature. Bonus points for screenshots or pictures if you’re happy with it :slight_smile:

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Many Thanks

  • The method of obtaining auth_tokens will change in the future.
  1. Configure your tap(s). From the On Tap 2 section of the dashboard, select Configure tap for the tap you want to link to Plaato. Under Advanced settings, paste your API key and click Update.

  2. That’s it! Your keg volumes will be periodically scanned and updated in the Taplist.io 1 UI.

I’m using PLAATO Kegs integrated with Taplist, which is great for monitoring keg levels and helps plan when to do the next brew. However, after I had purchased more PLAATO Kegs, PLAATO have been unresponsive when I have requested auth tokens from them. Anyone know a work-around to get the PLAATO Kegs integrated on Taplist?

Hey Dave! Hmm, I haven’t heard of any general holdups - I’m guessing they’re just a little hit-or-miss on responding to support.

You might try pinging them on Instagram, if you have an account, as they seem to be pretty active there.

Thanks Mikey. I’ve sent them a message - see if I get a reply.

Hey Mikey - a quick bit of feedback. Instagram worked well to get hold of PLAATO - they responded the same day and issued the auth tokens today. Thanks for the suggestion.

Plaato sent me my four auth tokens in two business days. I followed the directions and now Plaato Keg info is nicely displayed on my Taplist. Worked without problems. Thanks!

I used Taplis flawless for months - I had to move my keezer - had to reset plaato to a different WiFi network - got new Tokens from Plaato - and now I can not put the new Tokens in. Anyone else having issues with putting in tokens atm?

Thanks for writing in and helping us fix this, Tobias! The issue should now be resolved.
