SmartCover API with Ignition

Has anyone done API integration between SmartCover and Ignition? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Never heard of them. Links?

They have an API, so Ignition can talk to it with scripted

Looks very doable - they even have a Python example in the docs:

import requests
import csv
# variable to store the location id of interest
location_id = 'LOCATION_ID'
# variable to store the JWT token
token = 'TOKEN'
# set the authorization header
headers = {'Authorization': 'Bearer ' + token}
# set the request parameters
params = {
 'location': location_id,
 'start_time': '2020-07-01 00:00',
 'end_time': '2020-07-10 00:00',
 'data_type': '2' }
# make the GET request
response = requests.get('',
params = params, headers = headers)
# store the response code
response_code = response.json()['response_code']
# store the data from the response
data = response.json()['data'][0]
# write the output to a CSV file
with open('output.csv', mode = 'w') as output_file:
 output_writer = csv.writer(output_file, delimiter = ',')
 output_writer.writerow(['datetime', 'level']) # write the column headers
 for row in data:

In your case, importing the requests library will probably be unnecessary because of the built-in, and functions.

If you already have a token, you should be able to do something like this (off the top of my head):

client =
url = ""
headers = {
    "Authorization": "Bearer <YOUR_TOKEN_HERE>"
res = client.get(url, headers=headers)

if res.good:
    print res.json
