Meraki API - Find Access Points Power Source

Is there an API available that will bring back the power source setting for a Meraki access point?  We have over 850 networks with some access points running at PoE 802.3af (running in low power mode) and want to write a report that will list all access points running in low power mode within all the networks.  We have the code traverse through the networks and get the status of all access points but cannot find the variable that stores the power source mode.

Kind of a big deal

Re: Meraki API - Find Access Points Power Source

Oof! You can pull this from the Wireless > Monitor > Access points page for each network... But, yeh, doing that ~850 times is totally a non-starter. I don't recall ever seeing this in the API, and a look through the docs doesn't yield anything useful 😞

I can't see any API that returns that information sorry.

As an alternative maybe you could create an inventory of your switch models in a scripted way, and deduce the Low Power Mode status yourself by just checking PoE+ support on them.

We have only deployed the Meraki APs on Cisco switches, we do not use the Meraki switches.

Are you using any kind of management solution? Prime? Solarwinds? PRTG? If you are maybe it could be leveraged to create an inventory of models?
