What is an API key?
The API key acts as both a unique identifier and a secure, secret token for authentication.
There are two types of API keys:
- Developers: An Application Key is required for each application that you develop. To create a device key, login to your account at AmbientWeather.net and visit: AmbientWeather.net Account Settings.
- Users: A Device Key is required to connect your weather station to the application created by the developer. To create a device key, login to your account at AmbientWeather.net and visit: AmbientWeather.net Account Settings.
