What is an HTTP(S) request?

Home / FAQ zum ekey bionyx System / What is an HTTP(S) request?

You can connect an ekey system to almost any smart home system with an HTTP(S) request.
HTTP(S) requests can be created in the ekey bionyx app and assigned to users or fingers.
The HTTP(S) requests are then called up when the finger is placed on the fingerprint scanner and sent to the smart home system. They can also be called up via the ekey bionyx app.

The corresponding HTTP(S) request for the smart home system is usually located in the respective API, which is usually publicly visible on the Internet.
You can find out exactly how an HTTP(S) request is created here: https://developer.ekey.net/c/https-requests/6.

Note that only a system administrator may create an HTTP(S) request.
