ENMATRIX – Mobile App for Smart Buildings and Yachts Management

Enmatrix is a native IoT mobile app for automated management of connected devices in a building or on a yacht. It is an intuitive, highly customizable user interface allowing to control lighting, climate, video surveillance, energy consumption and more.

Blockchain Development Company

The Challenges

  • The customer needed a native mobile app that would extend their core offering – an integrated, highly customizable system for managing various connected devices in a smart building or on a smart yacht.

  • SoluLab’s IoT experts pulled together to take up this challenge, which also included working with the customer’s proprietary protocol in remoteness from the real devices, bringing uncertainty to the development process.

Solutions

  • Surveillance cameras, with the possibility to change camera angles and zoom in/out

  • Heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC)

  • Energy consumption

  • Media systems, including set-top boxes and satellite tuners

  • Sensors and motion detectors

  • Video intercoms

  • Smart curtains, doors, locks and more

  • Lighting brightness and colour for separate lamps or in the entire building

  • Preset or fully customized scenes for lighting, climate and smart curtains

Technical Background

  • SoluLab ensured smooth communication between the user interface and the backend via the proprietary text protocol, supporting plain text and MessagePack, and sockets over a LAN or the Internet.

  • The protocol allows configuring the visualization of infrastructure – that is, picturing the location of all connected devices – at the server level when deploying the devices in a setting. That said, the customer can save on customizing this part of the UI for each client.

  • Over the IP protocol, the server communicates with gateways, which, in turn, communicate with devices, be it light bulbs, curtains or an air conditioner, over corresponding protocols like KNX, ZigBee and others.

  • In addition, it directly communicates with IR gateways for remote control of IR-based devices and with video surveillance cameras.

Outcome

  • In the course of the project, SoluLab stuck to regular communication with the customer to make sure that using the unfamiliar proprietary protocol along with testing the app on simulated devices by no means would impede the time-to-market.

  • Content with the project results, the customer commissioned SoluLab to create a customized mobile app for one of their premium clients.

  • The team also improved this product and contributed to the server-side development with more smart devices to be integrated into the system.
