Develop your own app


Developers have access to API documentation, downloads, and device registration features to support application development.

Empatica Customers with an E4 connect account can sign up for developer access. Developer enrollment also allows you to authenticate device purchases with an API key so their Empatica device may be used with 3rd party software.

This article explains you how to sign up for a Developer access and register and share your devices with an Empatica purchase code.

Device registration

Developer applications are restricted for use among verified devices that have been associated with a developer’s account though purchase verification or sharing.

After each device ships, Empatica will send a shipping confirmation email that includes an Empatica "Purchase Code". This code will be necessary to register your device.

  1. Login into your E4 connect Account and go to the Developer Area


  2. Enter the purchase code in the space provided and click "Verify" to authenticate the devices associated with that purchase. Repeat this step for any additional purchases.


  3. You may now use the API key listed in this page to connect to your registered device from your custom/3rd party application.


    TIP If you can not find the purchase code for your device check with the shipping contact at your organization. In the event that a purchase code is lost, please contact Empatica’s support team with your device’s serial number for assistance.

Device sharing

A device owner can use the “share” button above each purchase to add developer access to existing E4 connect account holders. Once shared, the device will be listed under the “Your Shared Devices” list.
