Home Connect offers a RESTful API to control and monitor enabled home appliances. This API is a simulator to test your service. It requires an open appliance interface that enables you to connect your application to home appliances with Home Connect. This provides a way to control programs to start and stop, or home appliances to be configured and monitored. The Home Connect API provides access to home appliances enabled by Home Connect that is based on an HTTPS carrier with JSON data encoding.
