Smart hearing aids ⎮ Widex
The hearing aid manufacturer Widex uses the Nabto technology to create a direct connection between the client and a Hearing Care Professional to enable remote fitting of the hearing aids.
Widex has integrated the low-level Nabto streaming API directly in their smart hearing aids and uses the uNabto SDK inside iOS and Android mobile devices.
Widex’s way of using Nabto’s technology is unique, as it is often used to connect a specific IoT device to a smartphone. In this case, Widex wanted IoT in hearing aids where Nabto should create the connection from the HCP’s computer to the client’s smartphone, and not indirectly through the tunnel API as often seen.
Widex uses the uNabto SDK inside Nabto clients, i.e., iOS and Android mobile devices. The Nabto client then runs inside a Windows .NET application implemented using the Nabto .NET SDK.
AI surveillance camera ⎮ EyeCloud.ai
EyeCloud.ai uses the Nabto P2P technology in its AI surveillance cameras. It is integrated to allow the end-users to manage their cameras directly from their smartphones with a direct and secure tunnel implementation.
The AI surveillance cameras use the Nabto P2P streaming with a special tunnel implementation to support power-efficient dual MCU-embedded architecture and use a P2P RPC for remote control and configuration.
The integration has a paired public key authentication for strong security and uses Nabto push for sending events from the embedded device to central services.
Gateway ⎮ LS Control
The LS SmartConnect Gateway from LS Control uses Nabto to enable real-time access to stored data and current status updates.
This enables the customer to observe product performance figures and to receive push notifications predicting product maintenance visits, which eventually helps them to remotely monitor devices and carry out timely servicing.
The Nabto features that are implemented on the LS SmartConnect Gateway are:
- PIC32 based architecture using uNabto SDK for both RPC and streaming.
- iOS and Android apps based on Ionic/Cordova using Nabto RPC for remote control.
- .NET-based server application using the Nabto Client SDK .NET wrapper to access devices using Nabto RPC and Nabto Streaming.
- Nabto CA-based authentication with integration to custom identity management system.
Gateway ⎮ Develco Products
The Squid.link Gateway from Develco Products is an open Linux hub and modular platform. It has a Nabto SDK integrated, which allows users to communicate directly with the Squid.link Gateway through a tunnel that offers remote access to the REST API available on the gateway from client apps.
The Squid.link solution consists of three components:
- The end-user client, which can be a smartphone, a browser, or a server application.
- A cloud service to establish a direct connection.
- The Squid.link Gateway with the Nabto SDK.
Bluetooth Communication Enabler ⎮ PR Electronics
PR Electronics has integrated Nabto in the Bluetooth communication enabler PR 4512. The Nabto technology is used to make a transmission hybrid solution with both Internet and Bluetooth in the same system.
The PR 4512 offers live monitoring and diagnostics of smart devices, advanced data and event logging in real-time for Bluetooth-enabled client devices that are in proximity of the involved PR electronics hosts (measuring devices).
As Nabto enables remote access to installed PR devices, the need for technicians on-site for installations such as wind power utilities, pumping stations, petrochemical monitoring, waste site remediation etc., is not required as often.
Solar Controller ⎮ SOREL
The TDC Solar Controller from SOREL gives remote access to various types of solar systems – from simple to more complex systems. With the Nabto software integrated a direct P2P connection between the controller and the end-user client could be established, from which the user can remotely access the controller and monitor or log data from their heating system.
Nabto technology that has been implemented in SOREL Solar Controller includes:
- iOS and Android apps based on Nabto P2P IoT Remote Procedure Calls
- Nabto device-embedded software in controllers
- HTTP-to-Nabto bridge to support web browsers users
Home security systems ⎮ Cosesy
Cosesy has been using Nabtos software in several home security systems and solutions, for example, IP cameras. Having the Nabto P2P technology implemented on the Cosesy solution, the end-user can connect directly to their security solutions from anywhere with high privacy.
Software from Nabto integrated into Cosesy’s security solution is:
- Nabto P2P streaming for live video
- Push for notifying central services and users
- RPC for remote control and configuration of devices
Hub for smart alarms ⎮ Cavius
Cavius produces smart alarms and has integrated the Nabto technology into a hub. The hub works as a monitor for the alarms and the Nabto software enables the end-user to manage and remote control the alarms from any location through an app.
The Nabto technology implemented in the hub is:
- Central control and configuration through Nabto RPC from server applications
- Notifications on initiative of target devices through Nabto Push
IP Camera ⎮ Y-cam
Y-cam has integrated Nabto P2P live video streaming into their IP camera solutions which have reduced costs generated by sending data to a server, added a better user experience, and lowered the latency for live streaming.
One of the main reasons for Y-cam to use the P2P technology from Nabto was to work with a company that had a deep understanding of their high requirements of privacy – for example, the EU’s GDPR. Because Nabto is a European company, it was also easier for Y-cam to locate where the servers are running.
Industrial Controllers ⎮ Nexo
Nexo develops industrial controllers and has integrated the Nabto framework into these to enable the possibility to connect remotely to the controller (for example, the nXmicro+) via a TCP tunnel. This creates a direct P2P (peer-to-peer) connection between the CODESYS Engineering and the remote controller that allows the user to program and debug the remote controller as it is physically on their desk, connected with an ethernet cable.
The controllers from Nexo that have been integrated with the Nabto software are used for simple PLC logic but can also be used for more complex automation systems, softmotions, robotics, HMI design, etc.
Solar Cell Columns ⎮ Alfred Priess
The intelligent solar cell columns from Alfred Priess have a built-in Nabto micro web server, making it possible to perform a number of actions. The column can be controlled on-site from browsers and smartphones, and the Nabto P2P connection ensures that the latency is close to zero.
The Nabto software integrated into the solar cell columns makes the following actions possible:
- Monitoring the light, and status of the battery, to ensure a high level of uptime
- Optimization of the charging which increases battery life from 1-2 years to 10 years
- Updating the light scheme
- Updating the firmware
- Logging power consumption
Wind Turbine Systems & Controllers ⎮ SCADA MINDS
SCADA MINDS develops and implements SCADA systems for centralized monitoring and control of wind turbines. By integrating the Nabto technology into the solution, it is now possible for the end-user to gain secure and stable remote access to the wind turbine systems. It also enabled the operators to configure and control errors directly on a browser or a smartphone instead of physically going to the wind turbine, which previously has been the solution.
By implementing the Nabto IoT technology, SCADA MINDS found a way of modernizing SCADA solutions. It was essential with high security, low implementation costs, and a short time-to-market solution, which were all demands the Nabto solution could meet.
