  • How can I call an API URL from my Concord sensors/devices

    I am creating Virtual Devices in another application outside of HS3 and I need a URL that will read the value of my Concord sensors/devices.

    Typically I would be looking at the following URL to my HS3 server http://192.168.0.206 so to get a device/sensor state I would use this URL but I need the route to where I can interrogate it and the format to do this. As an example the one of these devices/sensors names are FRONTBEDROOMDOOR and its Device Address is CONCORD_1

    I may be going at this from the wrong direction but I'm just wondering could this be achieved. I hope this makes sense.

    Assuming your calling device has the smarts to parse the response you could try using the JSON calls?

      Thanks vasrc I'll check that out.

      In the meantime if I was wanted to check the status of one of the Concord devices in a browser bar and using my HS3 server URL what is the route to this device. Something along the lines of grabbing an image from an ip camera on your LAN. Can this be achieved with the devices/sensors outside of HS3.

      I hope I am explaining this correctly.

        That's what JSON does.

        http://192.168.0.206/JSON?request=getstatus&ref=xxxxx

        This is assuming you're on the same subnet so no user/password is included (you can add them of off the local subnet or define another subnet in HS3)
