Gateway Models

ioBridge offers various Web Gateway models including the IO-204, the IO-201 Wi-Fi, the IO-204, and the Gamma PRO Ethernet or Wi-Fi.  Current Gateway models can be view in our online store.

IO-201, IO-204 and Gamma PRO Series

ioBridge Web Gateways are input-output (I/O) routers that act as the interface between local devices or things and ioBridge’s servers on the internet (ioBridge cloud servers).   The ioBridge web-gateway has an Ethernet connection like a home computer that plugs into a local network and creates a connection to ioBridge’s cloud servers.  The ioBridge Web Gateways have I/O channels that enable the control and monitoring of digital inputs, analog inputs, serial data, servos, relays, and digital outputs using web-interfaces provided by ioBridge. » More Info

ioBridge Interface and Dashboard

ioBridge provides a common interface for its web gateway modules. From the interface, you can create custom dashboards, manage devices, setup alerts, create widgets, and setup data logging web services. » More Info

Function Boards

Function boards are small plug-in boards that connect to a channel on an IO-204 and Gamma Web Gateways. Function board types include sensors, relays, and terminals to provide easy prototyping. » More Info

Smart Boards for the IO-204

ioBridge offers Smart Boards to extend the functionality of the IO-204 Web Gateway. » More Info

Compatible Hardware

In addition to sensors and function boards offered by ioBridge, a wide range of third-party sensors and actuators can be interfaced with the inputs and outputs on the ioBridge Web Gateways. » More Info

Widgets

Widgets are used to control or monitor web gateway outputs on web or mobile user interfaces. » More Info

Expression Builder

Expression Builder makes it possible to apply mathematical expressions to sensor readings.  This feature enables users to scale analog readings to more meaningful values such as pressure or relative humidity. » More Info

Alerts

Alerts are notifications sent to email, Twitter, or your ioBridge account. Alerts can be based of analog input values from sensors, digital input values, pulse counts, and variable values. » More Info

Server-based Actions

Server-based actions are used to connect gateways together or link inputs and outputs across the Internet. » More Info

Onboard Rules and Actions

Onboard Rules and Actions are used to turn ioBridge web gateways into local controllers even when they are not connected to the internet. Examples range from simple temperature controller type functionality to controlling larger systems like a cranberry bog. » More Info

Data Logging

Web Gateway inputs can be measured and stored for charting displays or for future download.  Logging data is stored in the cloud and is available through the free user interface. » More Info

ioBridge API

The open ioBridge APIs are ways for programmers to extend the ioBridge technology and create new applications for desktops, web browsers, and mobile devices. » More Info

RealTime.io for Developers and Manufacturers

RealTime.io enables the Real-Time Internet of Things by providing infrastructure for connecting things, apps, and users. RealTime.io is available for developers and for license to manufacturers. Please sign up at RealTime.io for a new user account or sign in with your existing ioBridge.com user account. » More Info

Iota Internet of Things Modules

ioBridge currently offers an Ethernet and a WiFi module based implementations of the Iota firmware using Microchip technology.  These are called the Iota Ethernet and the Iota WiFi modules. » More Info

Iota Evaluation Board

The Iota Evaluation Board allows you to evaluate RealTime.io Cloud Services and the Iota Ethernet module. The evaluation board exposes the serial UART as a USB connection, so you can easily send and receive serial messages to and from a web service using a terminal application. Each pin on the Iota Ethernet are broken out for easy access to standard female strip terminals on the evaluation board. Common configuration pins are tied to a DIP switch and jumpers to get started quickly. The status indicators of the Iota Ethernet Module are wired to LEDs to visualize network and cloud state of the Iota. » More Info

Iota WiFi Eval Kit

Iota Wi-Fi Evaluation Board

The Iota WiFi Evaluation Board makes it easy for developers to evaluate the functionality of ioBridge’s Iota and RealTime.io technology. This ioBridge technology makes it simple to connect new and existing products to the internet. The Iota module connects via a Wi-Fi to the ioBridge RealTime.io cloud server on the internet. Wi-Fi is simple to setup using a mobile device or by using WPS buttons on the Wi-Fi router or Hot Spot mode. » More Info

RealTime.io with Android App and Iota Module and Eval Board

Web Client API for Iota Devices

Use the Web Client API to interact with Iota-enabled devices connected to RealTime.io cloud servers. This API provides access to HTTP streaming from one device or multiple devices, reading / writing to GPIO registers on devices, and requesting the connection state and IP address of devices. » More Info

App Builder

The RealTime.io App Builder allows you to build web apps directly on the RealTime.io platform. The apps are constructed out of HTML, JavaScript, and CSS. RealTime.io has built-in template apps or custom apps. Template apps are pre-built apps that you can start with and then customize. Custom apps allow you to upload your own files and images without any starter templates. We recommend starting with a template app so you can see how a basic app is formulated, then create a custom app when you are comfortable. » More Info

 

ThingSpeak

You use ThingSpeak to Send and Receive “data” via simple HTTP requests, much like going to a web page and filling out a form. Data can be from anything — Blood Sugar Levels measured by a glucose meter, Server Usage and Uptime reported by servers, or Location Info from a mobile phone. Once the data is in ThingSpeak, you can build applications that retrieve the data, use the data for process decision-making, and reporting. ThingSpeak is open source for open source projects and can be licensed from ioBridge for closed source applications. Documentation for ThingSpeak is available on the ThingSpeak Community website.
