How do I use the Denowatts API?

A summary and link to download Denowatts API v.2

Updated May 5, 2022

The Denowatts service includes API access to two call types:

  1. Raw Deno simulator records (1-minute daytime) for diagnostics use cases; or
  2. Site Performance records (15-minute) for performance management use cases

The resource URL is the same for both forms, while the channel ID determines the form of the record to be generated. Channel IDs can be obtained on the Customer Portal (my.denowatts.com):

Site Info

Monitoring services, customer enterprise applications, and other performance-related uses should use the Site Performance records for “Next Day Processed” and “Deno Clean Data”.

Real-time services such as aerial inspections, commissioning, and monitoring validation may choose to use Raw Deno records for low latency data.
