Development Quickstart

Get up and running with our REST API and start developing your integration.

Integrating SafeGate device into your app or website can begin as soon as you create a SafeGate account, requiring only three steps:

  • Obtain your API keys so SafeGate server can authenticate your integration’s API requests
  • Make a test API request to confirm everything is up and running

Step 1: Obtain your API keys

SafeGate authenticates your API requests using your account’s API keys. If you do not include your key when making an API request, or use one that is incorrect or outdated, SafeGate returns an error.

Your API keys are available in the Developer Integrations section under setting. We include randomly generated API keys in our code examples if you are not logged in. Replace these with your own or log in to see code examples populated with your own test API keys.

If you cannot see your secret API keys in the Dashboard, this means you do not have access to them. Contact your SafeGate support and ask to be added to their team as a developer.

Step 2: Make a test API request

To check that your integration is working correctly, make a test API request using your key to get SafeGate account info
