Python API Example - Query Group and Sensor Status

Here is an example of a python 2.7 script to find a group of sensors, the status of the group and the status of the sensors.

import urllib
import urllib2
import json

## Define the app ID and API key variables
appID = 'request app ID via support'
apiKey = 'request API key via support'

## Define the node you want to lookup
nodeName = 'Singapore'

if __name__ == '__main__':

  # The API for all sensor groups
  url = ''
  headers = { 'x-app-id' : appID, 'x-api-key' : apiKey }
  req = urllib2.Request(url,None,headers)
  response = urllib2.urlopen(req)

  # check if the response was successful
  if response.code == 200:

    # process the response
    result = json.loads(
    nodes = result['payload']['nodes']
    for node in nodes:
      if nodeName == node['name']:
        print node['name'],
        print node['state']
        sensors = node['state_summary']['sensors']
        for sensor in sensors:
          print '  '+sensor['name'],
          print '  '+sensor['state']

Example Output

Singapore warning
  Library   good
  Computer Lab B   good
  Computer Lab A   warning
