Developer Resources

Are you are a software or hardware developer looking to connect to a Smart Meter? Want to connect to zigbee Smart Energy products without learning the zigbee specification from start to finish?

Our expertise can now be yours. With our products and tools, you can get connected to Smart Energy in minutes using our line of products and simple XML interfaces.

EAGLE-200™

The new EAGLE-200 has several interfaces for developers to connect with.  For the original EAGLE, scroll down the page.

EAGLE-200 APIs

Cloud REST API

This API allows you to access data through our secure cloud interface.  Login using your user portal credentials to get access to your data.  https://api.rainforestcloud.com/swagger

Local API

The local API allows you to control and get data from the EAGLE if you are on the same local network as the EAGLE.

Use this API to stream real-time data to your own server or third party servers.  Data goes directly from the EAGLE to the specified URL.  Configuration of the URL can be done through the settings page on the EAGLE.

Uploader Specification

For those of you moving from our existing EAGLE, we’ve created some migration notes:

Uploader Migration Notes

EAGLE™

The original EAGLE gateway is no longer manufactured.  The resources below are provided to support the thousands of EAGLE gateways in the field.

EAGLE Application Programming Interfaces (API)

The Uploader API is a”push” interface. The EAGLE automatically sends data in this XML or JSON format to the designated URL.

The REST API is a “pull” interface, that works through the Rainforest Relay Server. The EAGLE responds to commands, sending data requested back to applications that communicate through this API.

EAGLE Online Code Resources

A number of developers have written code to interface to the EAGLE and posted it online.
These links are offered as is, and are not supported by us.
