You can browse the Sahha Android SDK on Github.

Android SDK [Github]


Step 1) Add Jitpack

Add the Jitpack repository to your project’s Settings.gradle.


repositories {
    maven { url "" }

Step 2) Add Implementation

Add the Sahha SDK implementation to your project’s dependencies in Build.gradle.


dependencies {


    implementation 'com.github.sahha-ai:sahha-android:+'



Step 3) Add Permissions

Add the required permissions to your project’s AndroidManifest.xml.


<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.FOREGROUND_SERVICE" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.PACKAGE_USAGE_STATS" tools:ignore="ProtectedPermissions" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACTIVITY_RECOGNITION" />
<uses-permission android:name="" />

Step 4) Import Module

Import the Sahha module into any files inside your project that use the SDK.




Configure Sahha inside onCreate of your app’s MainActivity.



class MainActivity : ComponentActivity() {

    override fun onCreate(savedInstanceState: Bundle?) {

        val config = SahhaSettings(
            environment = SahhaEnvironment.development
        Sahha.configure(application, config)


You may pass an optional list of settings to the configure method.

The SahhaEnvironment determines if the SDK connects to the development or production server of the API. Setting this incorrectly will send data to the wrong server.

SahhaEnvironment Description
development For development and testing
production For submission to the App store
enum class SahhaEnvironment {

Which sensors do you want to enable? Passing an empty array will enable all sensors by default.

SahhaSensor Description Android iOS
device For tracking device usage patterns X
sleep For tracking sleep patterns
pedometer For tracking walking patterns
enum class SahhaSensor {

If you would like to handle posting of sensor data to the Sahha API manually, set postSensorDataManually to true. You will then need to post sensor data to the Sahha API manually by calling postSensorData.

If you would like the Sahha SDK to handle posting of sensor data to the Sahha API automatically, set postSensorDataManually to false.

postSensorDataManually defaults to false.

postSensorDataManually Description
true You will post sensor data to the Sahha API manually by calling postSensorData
false The Sahha SDK will post sensor data to the Sahha API automatically


Each user of your app will be assigned a Sahha Profile for analyzation. This is not handled by the Sahha SDK. Please refer to the separate Sahha API documentation for steps to generate profiles and profile tokens.


The Sahha SDK must be authenticated in order to connect to the Sahha API. Do this once per user profile. Once the user is successfully authenticated, the SDK will take care of automatically refreshing expired tokens.

Sahha.authenticate(profileToken: "PROFILE_TOKEN", refreshToken:  "REFRESH_TOKEN") { error, success ->
    if (success) greeting = "Successful"
    else greeting = error ?: "Failed"


Each authenticated profile includes an optional demographic which can be used to increase the accuracy of analyzation. This data is not collected automatically. Your app can choose to GET or POST this demographic to the Sahha API.

class SahhaDemographic {
    public var age: Int?
    public var gender: String? // "Male", "Female", "Gender Diverse"
    public var country: String? // ISO 2 digit code, i.e. "US", "UK", "AU", etc.
    public var birthCountry: String?  // ISO 2 digit code, i.e. "US", "UK", "AU", etc.

var demographic = SahhaDemographic(age, gender, country, birthCountry)

Sahha.postDemographic(demographic) { error, success ->
    if (error != null) {
    } else {

Sahha.getDemographic() { error, demographic ->
    if (error != null) {
    } else if (demographic != null) {


The Sahha SDK acts as a bridge between your app and the device sensors. You must enable each sensor that you want to start collecting data from. To optimize your analysis result, we suggest enabling all available sensors.

enum class SahhaSensor {

Sensor Status

Each sensor has multiple possible statuses.

enum class SahhaSensorStatus {
    pending, /// Sensor is pending User permission
    unavailable, /// Sensor is not supported by the User's device
    disabled, /// Sensor has been disabled by the User
    enabled /// Sensor has been enabled by the User

You can check the current status of each sensor by calling getSensorStatus. This method is asynchronous and will return the updated SahhaSensorStatus in its callback.

Sahha.getSensorStatus(this@MainActivity, SahhaSensor.pedometer) { error, sensorStatus ->
    if (error != null) {
    } else {

Enable Sensor

You will need to manually enable each sensor by calling enableSensor. This method is asynchronous and will return the updated SahhaSensorStatus in its callback.

Sahha.enableSensor(this@MainActivity, SahhaSensor.pedometer) { error, sensorStatus ->
    if (error != null) {
    } else {

Open App Settings

It’s possible for your app user to disable a sensor. In this case, you must send the user to the app settings to manually enable the sensor.


Post Sensor Data

By default, the Sahha SDK will post sensor data automatically. However, if you set postSensorDataManually to true, you will need to post sensor data manutally to the Sahha API by calling postSensorData at a regular interval of your choosing.

You have two options:

  • A) Include a list of specific sensor data you want to post
  • B) Post all sensor data

Option A) Post specific sensor data

// Include a list of sensors
Sahha.postSensorData(setOf(SahhaSensor.device, SahhaSensor.sleep)) { error, success ->
    if (success) manualPost = "Successful"
    else manualPost = error ?: "Failed"

Option B) Post all sensor data

// Leave sensor list empty
Sahha.postSensorData { error, success ->
    if (success) manualPost = "Successful"
    else manualPost = error ?: "Failed"


You can analyze a user’s activities over a period of time and receive a mental health personalized report which you can display or action within your app.

Sahha.analyze { response ->

The response will be in JSON format. An example response includes these fields:
