What is rhomb.IoT?
rhomb.IoT is an open source firmware developed by Tecnofingers for the rhomb.io hardware platform. With rhomb.IoT you can program IoT devices for smart homes, smart cities, industry and commercial projects, among others.
rhomb.IoT is a library written in C++ using Arduino as a base and adding an abstraction layer with its own libraries that facilitate its operation with multiples microcontrollers of different architectures and communication modules like WiFi, GPRS, BL, GPS, LORA or environmental sensors and actuators.
rhomb.IoT is modular, through a configuration file we establish the components of our application and configurations such as how often we want to send data to the server or the information included in each message sent.
What is rhomb.io?
Our modular and scalable hardware platform designed to build your products and rapid prototyping. We started its development in 2014. Today we have a large amount of hardware designed and manufactured that we have been able to test continuously in real scenarios.
The firmware rhomb.IoT is an extension for the rhomb.io hardware. Both firmware and hardware, modular and scalable, allow our users a wide range of possibilities to develop their ideas.
Our hardware and software is open source under the GNU/GPL3 license and others. Commercial licenses are also available.
IoT Platform & M2M Management
A rhomb.IoT device needs a remote server where to send information, well, it is not mandatorily, you can also work with data loggers or LORA networks, but this is the general approach. At Tecnofingers we have also developed our own commercial and web based solution for IoT with device management:
It is called M2M System Source and, of course, you can contact us for more info. If you have a really big fleet of devices our developers can adapt our software to your needs and isolate a copy of the source code in a private server under mutual control. M2Mss also has Web Api and Websocket service to integrate reports and real time information in your application.
M2M System Source is optional for rhomb.IoT, you can configure your device to sent information to your own servers. You should know the Communication Protocol.
Integration with other IoT Platforms
Currently rhomb.IoT is only compatible with the IoT platform of M2M System Source, but we are open to add new options in the future, like MQTT, COAP or third party providers like Azure or AWS IoT.
