Getting Started

*This section covers the steps and methods required to integrate Placer with your application or service. You'll be up and running in a jiffy!*

[block:callout] { "type": "info", "title": "Before you start", "body": "To integrate Placer you will need the SDKs, App Key & App Secret. \nTo get them, please Sign Up at the Placer [Admin Dashboard](https://dashboard.placer.io/#/applications/settings) and create your first app." } [/block] [block:api-header] { "type": "basic", "title": "Integrating Placer" } [/block] ##Intro Placer is a profiling solution of mobile users. The solution contains interfaces for signals collection and for data query. Data collection: * ** [Android](doc:android)** and **[iOS](doc:ios)** SDKs are used for collecting signals in an optimized way. * **[Data Import](doc:data-import)** is used for sending signals that are collected without Placer SDK. Data query / streaming: * **[REST API](doc:overview)** is used for limited data retrieval. * **[Batch Export](doc:data-export)** is used for daily batch export of all user data. * **[Geofencing Triggers](doc:getting-started-1)** is used for generating triggers and data streaming in near real-time.

If the integration was completed successfully you should see your devices in the dashboard and be able to query the REST API endpoints. 3 - Move on to implement the [Server-2-Server](doc:server-2-server-rest-api) integration.
