This is yet another step in Kontakt.io's commitment to reduce the complexity associated with IoT technologies while improving business outcomes. This will enable customers to quickly and easily onboard third-party Bluetooth devices to the Kontakt.io Cloud Platform facilitating countless new business cases to be realized.
"We believe that in order for the IoT to scale successfully in the following years, companies need to spend less time worrying about the technological feasibility and more time focusing on the business outcomes," said Philipp von Gilsa, CEO of Kontakt.io. "Opening our platform to third-party devices will give customers the ability to choose which hardware is best-suited for which use case without worrying about how to onboard, secure, configure and manage the location and telemetry data of a growing fleet of diverse devices. A proven framework for transforming data into business decisions and the ability to manage applications from the firmware to the API gives Kontakt.io significant leverage in this regard. It is a win-win for customers and solution providers alike."
The Kontakt.io Cloud Platform interface will display the integrated third-party Bluetooth devices together with Kontakt.io Beacons and Tags. Useful data on temperature, humidity, location and more will be gathered, analyzed and ready to be acted upon. This includes non-traditional beacons such as panic-buttons, thermostats, environmental sensors or door locks.
