Halio understands that delivering an unmatched user experience requires intelligent interaction with other smart building systems and devices. Halio’s flexible cloud-based architecture was designed with partner integrations in mind. The Works with Halio program provides multiple options for secure integrations between Halio and today’s leading Building Management/Automation Systems (BMS/BAS), smart home platforms, room controllers, or even individual Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

The Works with Halio program provides three options for integrations:

  1. Niagara Framework®-based BMS/BAS Integration: This option provides a Halio software driver which allows Halio features to be exposed to BMS/BAS controllers running Niagara Framework.
  2. Halio BMS/BAS Gateway Integration: This option includes a Halio gateway running Niagara Framework with Halio driver software; this solution bridges communication from Halio to the proprietary BMS/BAS system.
  3. Halio Cloud API Integrations: This option provides direct interactions with the Halio Cloud; this is useful for Halio cloud-to-3rd party device cloud or Halio cloud-to 3rd party device applications.

The Halio API is the most common method and offers subscription-based access to data shared by Halio devices. Halio also provides a developer program that enables qualified partners to jointly create integrations for compelling new user experiences. For easy and secure interaction, we use OAuth2.0 to receive permission from the end-user to gather information from Halio devices.

The Halio Developer program is simple. First, submit your request for access to the Works with Halio Developer Program.

  • Halio will send you a “Works with Halio” Developers Agreement.
