level numbers
Use it only for update Tank level
temperature numbers
(optional) Use it only for update Tank temperature

Example: if you need to update Tank level and temperature and send "on" Command to Switch integrated with device by URL link "GET method":
http://api.iotbind.com/v1/tank.php?method=get&key={DeviceKay}&uid={UniqueID}&cmd=on&level={numbers}&temperature={numbers}

replace:
{DeviceKay} = API Device Kay
{UniqueID} = Device UniqueID
{numbers} = any Data you need

Output json Data :
{"MESSAGE":"UPDATED"}

* temperature and switch Command (cmd= on or off) is an optional if you need to update temperature or switch status if the switch integrated with the device

Example: if you need to get tank data by "GET method":
http://api.iotbind.com/v1/tank.php?method=get&key={DeviceKay}&uid={UniqueID}&cmd=get

replace:
{DeviceKay} = API Device Kay
{UniqueID} = Device UniqueID

Output json Data :
{
    "uid": "UniqueID",
    "name": "DeviceName",
    "type": "Water Level",
    "cmd": "on",
    "level": "67",
    "level_unit": "%",
    "temperature": "21",
    "temperature_unit": "C"
}

Example: if you need to update Tank level and temperature and send "off" Command to Switch integrated with device by URL link "POST method":
http://api.iotbind.com/v1/tank.php

Send POST data with request:
method=post
uid=UniqueID
key=DeviceKay
cmd=off
level=numbers
temperature=numbers

Output json Data :
{"MESSAGE":"UPDATED"}

* temperature and switch Command (cmd= on or off) is an optional if you need to update temperature or switch status if the switch integrated with the device

Example: if you need to get Tank level data by "POST method:
http://api.iotbind.com/v1/tank.php

Send POST data with request:
method=post
uid=UniqueID
key=DeviceKay
cmd=get

Output json Data :
{
   "uid": "UniqueID",
   "name": "DeviceName",
   "type": "Water Level",
   "cmd": "on",
   "level": "67",
   "level_unit": "%",
   "temperature": "21",
   "temperature_unit": "C"
}

If you want send "ping" Command to iotBind platform to learn that the device is connected by URL link "POST method":
http://api.iotbind.com/v1/tank.php

Send POST data with request:
method=post
uid=UniqueID
key=DeviceKay
cmd=ping

Output json Data :
{"MESSAGE":"PING OK"}

If you want send "ping" Command to iotBind platform to learn that the device is connected by URL link "GET method":
http://api.iotbind.com/v1/tank.php?method=get&key={DeviceKay}&uid={UniqueID}&cmd=ping

replace:
{DeviceKay} = API Device Kay
{UniqueID} = Device UniqueID

Output json Data :
{"MESSAGE":"PING OK"}
