Panoptix by Johnson Controls is a platform and an application marketplace for efficient building control and monitoring. Panoptix offers applications for energy monitoring and other building monitoring activities.
Panoptix offers APIs to developers to access and integrate the functionality and data of Panoptix with other applications and to create new applications. Example API methods include retrieving building data, retrieving energy data, and retrieving meter information.
Of the many APIs we published this week, six were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we will toss those six into the spotlight, which include the Internet DJ API. The Internet DJ API allows developers to access and integrate the functionality of the Internet DJ site into their application. The functionality allows for access to site news, forum, music and new release, mixes, song of the day, and data about pretty much everything the site has to offer. API requests are limited to 5,000 a day and responses are formatted in JSON.
Johnson Controls launched Panoptix last year to offer developers a set of tools and APIs that encourage development in the building efficiency space. Developers took their first shot at the Panoptix suite of APIs at Hack-City SF. Panoptix continues to garner attention to its platform, and further enhanced the offering with four new APIs. Panoptix launched with building, space, and meter data APIs; now, the platform added AHU, VAV, and HVAC data.
