Algo Solution Offers Developer Support for RESTful API

July 27, 2020 by Ying-Hui Chen

Did you know Algo offers developer support for REST API?  Algo offers a wide range of mass notification devices including audible and visual alerting systems, door phones, and security intercom systems. These solutions can be activated by multicast, RESTful API, or integration with mass notification software platforms.

What is REST API?

API is an abbreviation of “Application Programming Interface”. API allows two pieces of software to communicate with each other. 

REST API stands for Representational State Transfer API. These APIs can be used to exchange information and data between applications. Algo Solutions support RESTful API to meet your business requirements. 

Use Case Scenario

The Mobotix M16B camera takes thermal images of people coming into a school. When a person exceeds the temperature threshold set, the M16B would send a notification to a server; the server would then send API commands for a workflow that could flash a strobe light in the office indicating they have a high-temperature threshold met. 

The user would then go to a computer and identify the individual and put them in a secure location for further assessment. A message could also be broadcast to the nurse’s smartphone in the school letting him or her know they have a patient to attend to.
