Release of Things Gateway 0.6, lock for IoT-devices from the Mozilla company


The Mozilla company presented release of Things Gateway 0.6 which represents a universal layer for the organization of access to various categories consumer and IoT-devices, hiding for herself features of each platform and not demanding uses application, specific to each producer. The code of the project is written in the JavaScript language with use of the server Node.js platform. For interaction of a lock with IoT-platforms it is possible to use the ZigBee and ZWave, WiFi protocols or direct connection through GPIO. Insertions with a lock are prepared for various Raspberry Pi models.

the Lock can be established on a payment of Raspberry Pi and to receive the control system of the clever house uniting all IoT-devices which are available in the house and providing means for monitoring and management of them via the Web interface. The platform also allows to create additional web applications which can interact with devices through Web Thing API. Thus, instead of installation of the mobile application for each type of IoT-devices, it is possible to use the uniform unified web interface. For the Things Gateway installation it is enough to upload the provided insertion on the SD map, to open a host of "gateway.local" in the browser, to adjust connection to WiFi, ZigBee or ZWave, to find the available IoT-devices, to configure settings for access from the outside and to add the most demanded devices on the home screen.

the Lock supports such functions as definition of devices in local network, the choice of the web address for connection with devices from the Internet, creation of accounts for access to the lock web interface, connection to a lock of the devices supporting the proprietary ZigBee and Z-Wave protocols, remote turning on and switching off of devices from a web application. It is separately noted that except the web interface and API in a lock the experimental support of voice-activated control allowing to distinguish and execute voice commands is realized (for example, "turn on the light in kitchen").

Main innovations: The feature for remote monitoring of a condition of the house through Web is added. The system of monitoring is completely under control to the user and is not tied to third-party services that provides confidentiality of the user, allows to do without additional monthly fees creators of external services and gives the chance of use of sensors from any producers; Support of sensors of opening of doors and windows and also motion sensors, including motion sensors and multipurpose sensors from the SmartThings company Is provided. Thanks to the sensors supported by the platform users can trace at any time temperature in the house, unauthorized invasions and level of a charge of accumulators during the autonomous work; Support of sending push-notices for a desktop, the laptop, tablet or smartphone Is realized. Thanks to push-notices of warning of non-staff events will be delivered even if at the moment the web application of Things Gateway is not opened on system Paul
