Change the game with the BACnet IoT Gateway

IoT Gateways are a dime-a-dozen on the internet – with a range of vendors providing a range of solutions.  But most still require some DIY – to actually put together a solution, and connect your own cloud, maybe even install your own software. 

The new BACnet IoT Gateway from Sierra Monitor is a complete, turnkey, end-to-end system for companies building solutions on BACnet.  (See the case study on Cortex – a BACnet solution developer using the IoT Gateway)

Plug the IoT Gateway into any BACnet network with the dual RS-485 ports for MS/TP, and/or the Ethernet port, and begin discovering all the BACnet objects on the network.  Use the GUI to select the devices, objects and profiles to monitor. 

Send those data elements to the SMC Cloud and use the REST API to pull the data into your App, Cloud or Service. 

Total elapsed time –

  • From IoT Gateway to Cloud – about an hour. 
  • From SMC Cloud to your App – the REST is up to you!

So if you’re building a service using BACnet and you need an easy way to get BACnet data out of the facility and into your App.  The BACnet IoT Gateway is the tool for you.
