CRAB Developers

Information API: Specifications API: PHP

Welcome to the CRAB developers page

Want to create your own IoT device for publishing temperature data to CRAB? You have come to the right place!

Here we will tell you about the specifications for the code required including some sample scripts.

Before we start, be sure to get your own API key as this will be required for reporting your data to us. Register yourself for free at and create an API key.

We allow two operative temperature sensors per API key, one for water (required) and one for air (optional). Meaning the sensors can be replaced and still function with its key, but it will require reconfiguration of the sensors. You can create as many API keys you need, ideally one per location which is its intention.

Currently there are few scripts available to use, but hopefully this will expand in the future.

Please use the menu on the left to continue.
