Connect your devices to Cortexo’s Internet of Things (IoT) platform



Internet of Things

Wikipedia describes the Internet of Things (IoT) is the interconnection of uniquely identifiable embedded computing devices within the existing Internet infrastructure. Typically, IoT is expected to offer advanced connectivity of devices, systems, and services that goes beyond machine-to-machine communications (M2M) and covers a variety of protocols, domains, and applications.

In the context of the Cortexo platform the Internet of Things relates to the connection of “everything” that produces or consumes electricity. We are constantly looking for appliances and devices we can connect to allow them to participate in remote control and monitoring to optimise energy use (and cost).

Monitor and Control

The Cortexo platform uses standard open protocols to communicate with devices as well as our own RESTFUL data API. It allows for connections to data sources (devices, machines, appliances) as well as front end UI’s (user interfaces)
