Sensors Expo – Booth 1616: Observables Inc., has created a connected service platform that connects, manages, monitors and controls new and legacy infrastructure devices on the network, including alarm systems, computer networks, access control, smart home, phone and video surveillance into a singular cloud and mobile dashboard for dealers, OEMs, makers, and end-users alike. With the launch of their new patent-pending IOBOT™ with the AlwaysON™ Platform, Observables provides a complete hardware and software solution that serves as a bridge between legacy systems and modern technology and can help developers break into the market faster.
IOBOT is a Software Defined Security Device (SDSD) that has the baseline functionality of a network router but with configurable internal modules for customization by market application including phone and intercom, access control, security, network, automation, persistent communications and more. The IOBOT uniquely features the patent-pending AlwaysON Platform that tightly couples the onboard AlwaysON Operating System (OS), AlwaysON Cloud, and AlwaysON Mobile app to provide a singular dashboard for installation, support, service, and end user control. AlwaysON enables dealers to add a Software as a Service (SaaS) business model through revenue based subscriptions determined by end-user service and functionality.
Each IOBOT comes with USB, Ethernet and WiFi connectivity. There are two additional modular slots inside each IOBOT that allow for custom configuration - one communication module (to add Cellular and soon Z-Wave and LoRa) and one personality module that handles physical connections (Analog Phone, Alarm panel, Controllable GPIOs, Relays, Wiegand interface, Z-Wave, RF and other application sensors / standards). The USB interconnect Bus provides the ability to quickly add third party devices, expansion modules, and the optional satellite Unit for global connectivity both on and off grid. There are numerous configurations that customize the IOBOT; developers can easily add multiple applications to each IOBOT through a wizard-based interface on the AlwaysON Cloud.
The AlwaysON Cloud proactively manages all IP devices on a network, and continuously checks system health to alert users if the system is down or a network is breached. If any devices on the network report an error, the AlwaysON Cloud diagnoses and troubleshoots the issue.
Observables has engineered a Cloud-based connected services platform and hardware to deliver their patent-pending solution that:
- Connect with persistent communications via broadband, cellular, or the industry's first ever satellite communicator for on or off grid global service. .
- Manage IP devices, security panels, sensors, lights, thermostats, video cameras, door locks, gates, garage doors, and more to create actionable homeowner and Central Station alerts.
- Monitor system health proactively through remote diagnostics and troubleshooting plus self-healing procedures for profitable recurring monthly revenue (RMR), minimized inventory and reduced truck rolls.
Observables is a first-time exhibitor at Sensors Expo & Conference. To learn more about Observables, IOBOT, and AlwaysON at the show, please visit their booth (1616) or visit: http://www.observables.com
