Platform

Everything you need to deploy smart building applications

Cloud Platform

API-fication of building management systems. Abstracts away the chaotic BMS network technologies.

Web infrastructure service to deploy smart building apps

  • Connect and manage your fleet of Boxes.

  • Configure field networks remotely. No need to call for an automation engineer.

  • Collect data and control building equipment.

  • 2G/4G GSM communication included in our cloud platform subscription.

  • Get manual access to the API functionalities.

Management console

Wattsense cloud platform is an abstraction layer which relieves smart building developers from a series of contingencies, boosting their productivity and streamlining the design of their apps.

Reliable networking

Reaching the Boxes is abstracted away. The platform is always on to receive the notifications from the Boxes, even if the app itself is not. It relieves the apps from timeouts and retries policies which are required when trying to establish a direct connection to a Box.

Basic instrumentation

The platform monitors the health of the network of Boxes, and provides programmatic options to notify relevant parties. Those statistics are compiled and made available to a sysadmin audience on the side of the apps.

Defense in-depth

Proactive maintenance of the IoT fleet driven by the platform to safeguard the Boxes from being turned into a botnet.

Box versioning

The Boxes will evolve (they have to), which will lead to multi-version support challenge. The platform abstracts away the diversity to present a unified vision of the Boxes, irrespective of their original version.

Event-driven data layer

The stream of events/notifications produced by the Boxes is typically not suitable to be consumed as such. The platform provides a consolidation of those data into an event store, which ensures reliable access to historical data, as well as querying capabilities (per Box, building, time interval, etc.).


Box

Connected device designed for building equipment networks

Box
  • Collect data and send commands.

  • Universalize the various BMS field communication protocols into one embedded API.

  • Connect automatically to Wattsense cloud platform through 2G/4G or ethernet.

  • A white-label product so you can promote your own brand.

  • Host plug-ins, edge computing capability for low-latency and fail-safe features.

The building has a BMS?

The Box connects to the primary bus of the BMS as a third party.

There is no BMS?

A BMS network can be created from the Box.

Supported communication protocols

  • Modbus

  • BACnet (under development)

  • We are at the very beginning... many more to come

SCADA Applications

SCADA Applications

Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition systems are software applications commonly found in the building sector, in particular, to support Facility Management services.

SCADAs are architectured to interface with a number of communication protocols, and Wattsense API is designed to be plug and play. Connecting a SCADA to Wattsense is easy, just like connecting any software app. Less than two weeks of development can be expected to build the driver that will connect your SCADA to our cloud platform.
