Hi,
i'm new in this forum and i am studying about the potentiality of this platform.
I need to known if are there any API or Web Service that i can use by another private platform.
I need to create my monitoring system and i want manage the controller and the single element from my platform.
Is it possible?

Where can i find any documentation about it?

Thanks.
DF

http://www.openremote.org/display/docs/OpenRemote+Documentation from there look into User tutorial and User reference

Thanks

If you come with a unspecific question like this, I only can suggest to not only read the index, but also the pages they refer to. That's what I have done a couple of years ago.
Alternatively describe in much more detail what your context is and what you want to achieve.

I believe that my question is specific: "Are there any API that i can use to manage controller and single device in external platform?"

I don't want read all manuals of all platforms that i'm analyzing becouse i'm doing a feasibility study only and i haven't many time to choose my platform.

I try to be more specific: I have my third part platform that i am developing. In my platform can i call the OpenRemote's Api to manage the devices or the controller ?

The other platform look like ZVirtual Scene offer this and i would like if OpenRemote offer API too.

Thanks.

If you don't want to read: No

PZ1 why do you want to do polemic?
I would like to read the manual when i choose to use this platform.

Can i known before if in this platform there are all utilities that i need??

Thanks

You expect me to know what "ZVirtual Scene" is. Give no reference to it. What you ask is still vague. I have no clue of what you want to build.

OR is a very powerful platform, and supports many different generic protocols (http, tcp), as well as application specific protocols. You can do a great many things from home automation, security, to interfacing with home entertainment equipment.

If you want to deploy Z-Wave devices for example, I can point you to the appropriate documentation. But if you ask:

Are there any API that i can use to manage controller and single device in external platform

I am sorry, but I just can't answer differently as I did.

Thanks for this answer.

This is my idea:

I want use it for my home automation but i have another website that monitoring other my devices.

Can i introduce (with API) the control of any smart plag that i configure and control with this platform ?

Are there any API that allow me to manage the devices from another external website?

This is ZvirtualScene and the relative API that i would to use ( http://aarondrabeck.github.io/zVirtualScenes/plugin-webapi2.html ) .

Thanks.

There is a lot of information regarding REST and JSON to control other systems.
Your link also points to an API which uses REST and JSON.
You should be able to send commands and also read some information.
