How the WSO2 API Manager Helps to Open Quby's Smart Thermostat and Energy Monitor to Developers

The WSO2 API Manager is one of the most regularly used components from the WSO2 stack. The API store enables developers to find and test APIs, while the API publisher helps organizations manage the API lifecycle and monitor their usage, and the API gateway helps to manage traffic by controlling the number of calls and monetizing bill API usage.

Dutch startup Quby, European market leader in smart thermostats (with over 100,000 installations) wanted to open up their thermostats to application developers in a controlled manner, so they could integrate them with other systems and applications. Earlier this year, Quby organized a hackathon using the API manager, which was a great success. Developers were able to create new applications on the platform, which will soon be available to the world.

This webinar, presented by Nuwan Dias from WSO2, Michiel Fokke from Quby and Rob Blaauboer from Yenlo, will discuss

  • The new version of the WSO2 API Manager
  • Experiences by Quby employees during the hackathon
  • Their plans of opening up to a larger audience of developers using the WSO2 API Manager 1.9.0
