How to make use of API?

by noasmith » Wed Jun 13, 2018 7:53 am


Being new to the API phenomenon but fiercely interested in learning how to use them, especially the sighthounds api. Can anyone point me in the direction where to learn to make use of the API?

The documentation states that the API utilizes an HTTP POST request with a JSON body do make a recognition or detection.

What do I need to use the API? Are there any available examples for video streams?

Kind regards

Hello Noa,

You are correct, the Sighthound Cloud API is invoked by making HTTP request based solely off of images. It cannot work with video streams. You can find all of our Cloud API documentation at the link below:

You can find example code at the bottom of the following link:

Please take a look at that and don't hesitate to let us know if you have any other questions or concerns, thank you!
