The Hayo API allows developers to build apps that implement virtual remote controls for connected devices in a home. The API senses and transmits events between virtual remote controls and devices, making it easier for users to achieve desired actions on applications by simply manipulating a virtual remote control. The API sends requests and returns responses in JSON format.
Eleven APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Photos, Healthcare and Artificial Intelligence. Featured today is an API for 3D modeling marketplace CGTRader, and the Hayo smart home remote control API. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
This year, Hayo will start shipping its smart home device: a device that turns regular household items into virtual remote controls. Developers will be especially excited to learn that Hayo will include a developer API that enables the device to trigger actions within third party apps.
