101 Solutions has a web service, which can exchange information with third parties using APIs. The format that is sent is usually XML or JSON.
In practice this means that by using a webservices, information can be exported from the Solutions 101 remote monitoring system to another system or that by using a webservices, information can be imported from another system into the Solutions 101 remote monitoring system.
Examples of push data through an API:
- Forwarding maintenance interval.
After a pre-set hours position is reached, it automatically sends a message to an ERP system where a service technician is scheduled for carrying out a service.
- Forwarding alarm.
An alarm is activated and will be sent automatically to an emergency room (also possible in combination with an SMS and / or email).
- Forwarding billable hours.
The number of daily runninghours is automatically transmitted to a billing system
Examples of pull of data:
- Information from third parties.
Information from measurements made by third parties. This information can be imported via web services, independent of the hardware that is used to collect information.
- Import additional information.
From another system data can be imported to supplement existing data.
For example, data of an object that is being monitored. An example is a silo being monitored, wherein the properties of the contents of the silo (type of raw material, specific gravity and supplier name) can be imported from another system.
In order to be able to make use of this web service a web service-specific key is required which is provided by Solutions 101 upon request. This key is customer-specific and is not transferable.
