Amazon’s new APIs make your front porch smarter
Amazon has continued its smart home offensive with a set of new APIs for developers targeted at making our front porches smarter.
There are three new APIs in total – Doorbell Events Source API, Motion Sensor API, and 2-Way Communication API.
Each of their names gives away their use somewhat, but for a full breakdown:
Doorbell Events Source monitors for a doorbell press so a relevant action can be taken upon user interaction. The Doorbell Event Source endpoint is prompted by a press of the doorbell through the Doorbellpress event.
