With the Gateway it is now possible to track and monitor all your devices. The information gathered by the Gateway is sent in almost real time to the Kontakt.io Cloud and made available through the Location Engine. But it is also possible to access the information through our API.
All the available endpoints can be found in our Developer Center:
In order to use these endpoints there are some concepts you need to be familiarized with:
Id of the Gateway, 5 digit-code located on one side of the device.
It is also available in the Web Panel, under Infrastructure>Beacons.
The tracking Id refers to the unique Id or Mac Address of the device that is being tracked by the Gateway.
A Location is an area (amount of space) derived from a physical location. It is described by its map/schema and coordinates to determine its current location, where you can assign Receivers.
The Place Id can be obtained using the /place API endpoint, as shown below.
The image below shows the location of the Venue Id on the Web Panel, simply go to Locations List and select the location you are interested in.
Then use that Venue Id on the /place by Venue Id endpoint like so:
