Sensahub adds intelligence to your Internet of Things by easily integrating and controlling sensors and transforming their data



Responsive image

Dashboard


Define highly customised and personalised web and mobile screens to actuate sensors, display current and historical status of sensors and web services.


Responsive image

Data Transformation


Take raw sensor data and transform real time into meaningful information by applying historical values, machine learning, alarm triggers and math functions.


Responsive image

No Code


Drag and drop widgets onto a design surface, think Microsoft Powerpoint for sensors. Reduce effort and skills required to integrate sensors into applications using a library of plugins.



We imagine a world where solutions built on Sensahub can be delivered to market quickly to improve business productivity, benefit people’s lives, and remove barriers of entry for innovative IoT and IIoT solutions.

Sensahub has evolved from several years of development as a software platform to manage and process sensor data, applies experiences from enterprise software development and includes popular open source software components to create a world leading sensor management and integration platform.



Why Consider Sensahub?


The expanding ecosystem of the Internet of Things (IoT) can be confusing when deciding the best approach for your IoT solution.

Solutions that just view status and actuate sensors are interesting but the real power of IoT happens when you apply rich processing of sensor data streams with machine learning and cloud based services.

Sensahub has been developed to address a number of the issues with building, deploying and managing IoT solutions and can be applied to multi-industry scenarios as either the main application or behind the scenes integrated into your application.

We believe that the feature set of Sensahub can't be matched, making Sensahub the most powerful, flexible and easiest approach for deploying solutions leveraging IoT.

Difficulties with IoT

  • Solutions incorporating IoT are complex, requiring network, hardware and software specialist skills.

  • Disparate standards for protocols and APIs make integration difficult.

  • Modern hardware devices activate functionality via their own inflexible and isolated apps.

  • Handling raw sensor data is cumbersome and usually meaningless unless processed.

  • Device management (security, provisioning, inventory) adds complexities.

  • Limited options for a rich multi-channel user interface for display and actuation.


Sensahub Solution

  • Sensahub functions manages IoT complexity (eg. protocol integration).

  • Plugin library for no code sensor integration. Minimal code required for new plugins.

  • Hardware functionality abstracted as virtual devices enables integration and ease of use.

  • Aggregation and transformation of sensor data flow from raw data to meaningful information.

  • Sensahub provides the security and device services for sensors and web services.

  • Mobile, web, API, watch and voice channels configurable by end users via drag / drop widgets.





Architecture

Application Platform

Sensahub uses Microsoft's .NET Core application platform to deploy to Windows or Linux hosts.

Scalability and flexibility is achieved using an asynchronous messaging event model. Microservices and Docker enables easy extensibility to add or adjust functionality.

A reusable plugin model is used to integrate sensors or web services and new plugins can easily be coded in a variety of languages.

Cloud or Local

There are many cases where hosting Sensahub local to the sensors offers advantages over a cloud based system.

Sensahub is a perfect IoT gateway for edge or fog computing models and can run on tiny CPU class devices.

With Sensahub you can have the best of both worlds by deploying and processing locally before sending results to an ERP or the cloud, or deploy Sensahub fully in the cloud for single and multi-tenant solutions.

Focus


Sensahub is a universal IoT platform having grown from sophisticated home automation systems and now being redeveloped to be industry sector agnostic. Cross industry applicability is achieved with a proven architecture and powerful functions for a high degree of configuration / customisation to suit most industry IoT scenarios.

We intend Sensahub to be mostly used as the IoT engine for vertical market solutions, providing rich IoT services to a host application. This enables the vertical solution provider to focus on building the best vertical solution without the worry of specific skills and significant effort needed to properly integrate, control, process and manage access to external systems and data (sensors, web services and ERP/LoB systems).

Example Industry Applications


  • Manufacturing - Equipment monitoring, control and reporting.
  • Smart Buildings - Energy management for commercial buildings.
  • Smart homes - Integrate smart home devices into a unified dashboard portal.
  • Healthcare - Platform for managing sensors used in aged care homes.
  • Enterprise - Integration and processing of external data sources for business systems.
