Kontakt.io Opens IoT Platform to Third-Party Devices

Kontakt.io has announced that its Cloud Platform, including its Cloud Backend and Location and Telemetry application programming interface (API), will be open to third-party devices. Additionally, the firm has released three new Bluetooth products. The Cloud Platform will provide a modular, end-to-end Internet of Things (IoT) platform, allowing customers to onboard third-party Bluetooth devices for real-time location tracking, condition monitoring, and safety and security solutions.

"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, Kontakt.io's CEO in a prepared statement. "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."

The Cloud Platform interface will display the integrated third-party Bluetooth devices, together with Kontakt.io's beacons and tags. Data regarding temperature, humidity, location and other factors is gathered and analyzed. This includes non-traditional beacons, such as panic buttons, thermostats, environmental sensors and door locks.

"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," von Gilsa added in the prepared statement. "It is a win-win for customers and solution providers alike."
