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

Basic instrumentation

Basic instrumentation

The cloud service 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.

Box versioning

Box versioning

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

Defense in-depth

Defense in-depth

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

Event-driven data layer

Event-driven data layer

The stream of events/notifications produced by the Boxes is typically not suitable to be consumed as such. The cloud service 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.).

Reliable networking

Reliable networking

Reaching the Boxes is abstracted away. The service 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.
