nomos system AG has introduced three products that the company says provide universal automation for a seamless path into the Internet of Things (IoT) market.
According to nomos, its products break down the barrier of incompatible technologies, giving businesses and consumers alike full advantage of automation and IoT.
According to Gartner, more than 4.9 billion connected things will be in use in 2015, up 30 percent from 2014, and will reach 25 billion by 2020. nomos noted that never before has there been such need for universal protocols and devices that speak the same language.
Without common standards by which all gadgets can communicate, the lack of compatible protocols can cause frustration among consumers and rob businesses of their IoT potential.
nomos said it provides a universal automation-software engine capable of controlling any device, regardless of communication protocols, standards, or proprietary software. By elevating software and hardware to a single communication layer, nomos provides a seamless system that can connect, control, and feed data from any platform.
“I found it unacceptable that in such a promising market, devices were still not free to connect to each other because of the complexities of today’s technology,” said Bernhard Huessy, co-founder and CEO, nomos system AG.
“nomos was created to essentially free every product by slicing a shortcut around warring protocols and standards, ultimately taking businesses into the new world of interconnectivity.”
The company’s products include:
• Easy IoT Package (A): An IoT OEM automation package available as a white-label box that includes selected hardware or a software-as-a-service license only. As an out-of-the-box automation solution, the Easy IoT Package provides customers with a fully integrated automation system, allowing companies to personalize the product with their own corporate identity.
With three packages to choose from — comfort, lighting, and security — companies can select the box that best suits their IoT strategy and business model needs. The Easy IoT Package is solution for any company looking to enter the IoT market.
• IoT Development Platform (B): A development platform that gives users the tools to build their own automation product. Companies or OEMs can utilize pieces of the nomos software to improve an existing IoT solution, or use the entire functionality of the nomos engine to develop a unique IoT product without allocating additional time and resources.
The nomos multi-protocol gateway speeds development and helps users gain interoperability among their own devices as well as third-party devices. For those seeking to establish themselves in the automation marketplace or planning to create an IoT product, the nomos development platform provides flexibility.
• System Integrator Tool (C): A single- or bulk-license system integrator tool that provides the full scope of a high-end automation solution and seamless integration of hardware and software.
The System Integrator Tool provides a personalized and customizable user interface to connect one product universally. The nomos software platform offers full flexibility, including but not limited to HVAC, energy management, lighting, security, etc.
