ATEN’s New Open API Facilitates Integration with Third-Party Controllers

ATEN Control System and Room Booking System enable integration with third-party systems through ATEN’s new open API, enhancing its versatility.


Taipei, Taiwan (July 13, 2023) –ATEN International, the leading provider of KVM and AV/IT connectivity and management solutions, today announces that its Control System and Room Booking System support open APIs that enable third-party controllers from providers such as Crestron®, Extron®, and AMX® to integrate with the system without the need for the ATEN Configurator Software (VK6000). This improves interoperability between different systems and devices, offers greater flexibility for customizing and extending the Pro AV system’s functionality, and spurs greater collaboration through the development of new applications and integrations. 

ATEN is committed to developing interoperable software that integrates third-party systems, including controllers and room scheduling systems. This allows users to easily create new applications and integrations that leverage the capabilities of the ATEN Control System and ensure seamless collaboration. For instance, third-party controllers, such as those from Crestron®, can harness the benefits of the ATEN Control System, which includes the expansion of control interfaces and the extension of reach over longer distances.


For the ATEN Control System, third-party controllers, booking systems, and software can refer to the Telnet CLI document and use the ATEN open API to enter the required commands, thus enabling integration without the ATEN VK6000. This ensures communication with different systems without compatibility issues, paving the way for the creation of custom workflows. This capability is applicable to both the controller and expansion box series of the ATEN Control System.


Moreover, third-party controllers can leverage the TCP CLI document to retrieve and manipulate room status (available, reserved, occupied) within the ATEN Room Booking System, effectively performing a range of actions, including check-in, check-out, release, auto-release, reserve, and extend. By tapping into the strengths of the ATEN Room Booking System, these controllers can offer a comprehensive solution for room scheduling with advanced control capabilities. This not only enables a straightforward procedure for complete space utilization projects, but also allows users to query room status and monitor user actions via CLI commands.
