Android As A Gateway

Any Android phone or an Android tablet can be converted to a gateway thanks to the IoT-Ignite Agent which is developed for a wide user network of IoT-Ignite Platform.

For this, it is sufficient to download the IoT-Ignite Agent application via Google Play Store or from the link below and install to an Android device. After the installation, the device can be connected to IoT-Ignite Cloud using “Seamless Registration” or “Snap QR Code” methods.

With a device (gateway) that communicates with IoT-Ignite Cloud;

  • More than 2000 APIs of Ignite Cloud can be used,
  • Rules can be created on the device or Ignite Cloud and these rules can be executed (CEP),
  • An external node can be connected to the device for developing IoT services.
