Gateways

The Cortet IoT Control Platform is based on a scalable, distributed architecture for Internet of Things smart building control and is made up of two classes of IoT Gateways:

Group Controller Gateways:

Group Controller Gateways can be used as standalone IP-connected IoT gateways and to rapidly control native devices. They can also be used to coordinate many Local Controller Gateways for large-­scale, distributed networks.

Local Controller Gateways:

Local Controller Gateways are used to rapidly control native devices. Some Local Controller Gateway can be used as standalone IP-­connected IoT gateways for small or medium scale networks. All Local Controller Gateways can be connected to a Group Controller Gateway to join a large-­scale, distributed network.

Cortet Smart Control App

The Cortert Smart Control App provides fast and powerful direct control of all of the wireless devices in your system.

Basic Features:

  • Control many types of devices: lights, shades, plugs, thermostats, and more
  • Monitor many types of sensors: PIR/motion, contact, water leak, and more
  • Dynamically configure automations/rules: if this, then that behavior
  • Benefit from automated smart groups of devices based on location/room/zone
  • Create custom groups of devices
  • Fast, local-based control for on-premises access
  • Remote control & monitoring for off-premises access
  • Secure user registration and log-in

Cortet Cloud

The Cortet Cloud is a thin, yet powerful cloud solution. With the ability to provide system access 24/7 from anywhere in the world, we make sure your system is always and securely connected.

Basic Features:

  • Secure user authorization and management
  • Secure remote relay service: allowing off-premises applications to control & monitor on-premises networks
  • Secure protocol & RESTful API for cloud-to-cloud communication
  • Scalable to adjust to changing business needs
  • Portable to other hosting services
  • Locally deployable

The Coret API

The Cortet API (Application Program Interface) was designed with simplicity in mind. Based on JSON (JavaScript Object Notation), the API is lightweight and easy for developers to understand and use; all without sacrificing capability. The Cortet platform uses the same API for cloud communication and mobile app communication with the gateway, making it even easier for developers with work with the Cortet system and provide customers with a seamless app-to-cloud experience.

Using the Cortet API, a software developer with no wireless networking expertise can create great applications on top of a rock-solid wireless network framework.

The Cortet API is:

  • Simple
    • Based on the RESTful API that developers already know and use
    • Easy to read and understand JSON payload
    • Developers do not need to know any wireless protocols to use the API
  • Extensible - New features and attributes can be easily added thanks to JSON key/value pairs
  • Secure - All API calls are secured with HTTPS using TLS/SSL
