New gateway unlocks smart sensor data
Pressac Communications, a leading manufacturer of smart building technology, has unveiled a new gateway which makes it easier than ever to get sensor data into the cloud.
The new device means that information on everything from room occupancy to temperature can be easily fed into software or IoT platforms. The gateway works by changing the data gathered by the sensors into JSON, sends it via MQTT and makes it available locally or via the cloud.
The system comes with ready-made connections to leading platforms, such as Microsoft Azure, IBM Watson and AWS platforms, while Google Cloud connections are available if required.
It uses EnOcean’s internationally approved wireless protocol for transmission, enabling the sensors to communicate data via secure AES 128 bit encryption.
