Getting Started

Step 1: Setup the lock using KAS Cloud App

In order to start using the API, each lock and gateway needs to be set up and bound to an account created on the KAS Cloud App. To do this, download the app and set up the lock. Note you can only conduct API calls on locks that are bound to your account.

KAS Cloud App Register
  1. https://support.kas.com.au/portal/en-gb/kb/articles/KAS_Cloud_Register
 Once the locks(s) and gateway(s) are activated to your account. Now retrieve your API Key.

Step 2: Retrieve your API Key

The API Key is used to authenticate your account with the locks and gateways that you own. It’s a way to identifying that you are in fact the owner of the device.

Example

API Key: eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJfaWQiOiI1YzI3Yjk3ZDRiMTJhMTAw

MTc3MTVlZmYiLCJsYXRlc3RfdG9rZW5fZGF0ZSI6IjIwMTktMDEtMTNUMDY6NTI6MzUuMjg5WiIsImlhdCI6MTU0NzUwMTM5Mn0.v8cuLVqum_sWuM1OsSWiM3MUpRYRHuSMsBYucZIYVk0


Notice:
The above string is an invalid token. Just for demo purposes only.

Get your API Key by consuming a HTTP endpoint. Note only Paid plans can use an API Key. Open API is only for paid plan users. Once you’ve signed up, request your API KEY from the endpoint you can start using the API.
Visit this page on details to obtain the API Key: https://console.kas.com.au/account/apikey
You can obtain a static api key here: https://console.kas.com.au/account/staic-api-key
The above link is protected and requires an account to view it. Create an account using the iOS or Android app, activate your lock/gateway, return to this link and all details are provided.

Notice:
  1. The API key is dynamic and needs to be refreshed every 24 hours.

Step 3: Start using the API

Now, your locks are setup using the KAS Cloud App and you have your API Key, proceed below to get started.

Overview and Specifications:
  1. To use the API, it requires a paid subscription.
  2. Use the HTTP Status code to check for call result.
  3. Unless specified please use HEADER : Content-type: Application/JSON
  4. Unless specified please use HEADER: x-auth-token: <Your API Key here>
Example
Content-type: Application/JSON
x-auth-token: eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJfaWQiOiI1YzI3Yjk3ZDRiMTJhMTAw

API Commands

Remote Unlock

Unlocks the door.
Lock Gateway required to conduct this command. This command will work if a Gateway is 1) activated, 2) connected to a network, 3) within the specified range of the target door lock.
Tip: This API is perfect for IFTTT

Request

Request URL

factory_name is obtained from app interface. It either starts with ‘SS’ or ‘UL’. Replace API_KEY with your API Key retrieved from above.

Request Method

GET


Header

Content-type

application/json

Body

nil

   504
{
"ack": 504,
"message": "Gateway timeout. You should retry the request again now.",
ref: "UOWS-Xmuj"
}

Notice:
  1. This command may take up to 15 seconds to return a result. It’s because the command needs to be delivered through the gateway network and the lock will respond with the “ack” result.
  2. If you receive a 504 status code, it is because the gateway has timed out. Due to network, we can't guarantee if the request was delivered or not to the lock. If this scenario, you should retry the request immediately.

ACK and Response Values

Additionally to the HTTP response format. There might be a circumstance where you receive HTTP Status 200 but the request did fail. This is due to the gateway to lock connection. It could be bad network exception, gateway offline, bad lock signal or others. However, in the scenario that HTTP Status 200, we know that the request did reach the lock.
If this case, it is best to attempt the request again and set yours a number of tries. If the number of tries > 3 you can be certain there is an uncontrollable external factor failing the request. Here, you can handle the result accordingly.

If you receive HTTP Status 504, this is a gateway timeout. Due to networking or other factors, the request might have reached the lock but the gateway did not respond back fast enough before the request was closed. In this scenario, we can't guarantee if the request failed or succeed. You should retry the request again straight away if you receive HTTP Status 504.
