Overview: ekey bionyx HTTPS requests


ekey bionyx offers a lot of features, such as free configurable HTTPS requests.
The HTTPS requests are usally found in third-party APIs of smart devices like smart locks, door stations and many more. An example of a request sent by an ekey fingerprint scanner could be opening a smart lock.
The settings can easily be accessed in the ekey bionyx app.
ekey HTTPS requests are assigned to users/fingers. They can also be triggered through the ekey bionyx app.

Intended use

If you cannot find your third-party system or device listed on our website, there is no operational API available yet. But you can solve this issue by using HTTPS requests. In daily use, HTTPS requests are triggered by the ekey fingerprint scanner as soon as the assigned finger matches.
If you wish to configure an HTTPS request, you need to understand how APIs and networks work. You will find detailed information under Explanation of REST & HTTP.

By now, it is only possible to trigger five HTTPS requests per ekey bionyx account with the ekey bionyx app or an assigned finger. An unknown finger and the ekey input (the digital input of the ekey control unit) cannot be selected for this smart home feature. ekey is continuously developing and improving this feature and each new release of the ekey bionyx app offers new possibilities.
