As intelligent devices become ubiquitous the challenge is to connect sensors and actuators through smart systems. A major issue is the growing number of communication protocols, with no single standard.
The challenge is to intelligently connect smart instrumentation so that devices can communicate across multiple protocols. At the same time, increases in the volume and importance of data means that privacy, security and robustness of systems is paramount. Shaspa is built on the need for robust smart instrumentation – for a ‘universal translator’ that can communicate with devices intelligently across a broad number of protocols. The Shaspa Bridge is designed as a universal protocol translator – a digital Babel fish to make smart instrumentation possible.
By connecting devices across communication protocols consumer choice is no longer limited by proprietary systems. Consumers are free to select appliances from a range of vendors, mixing and matching to suit their needs, knowing that the Shaspa Bridge can translate between them.
Smart instrumentation creates the foundation for smart inter-connectivity.
Smart inter-connectivity takes data from smart sensors, actuators and other data streams to create smarter systems for households and businesses, putting people in control of their technology.
For example, the Shaspa Smart Thermostat for residential and commercial users is built on smart inter-connectivity. Traditional thermostats only use room temperature to regulate heating or cooling relative to a set point. Our Smart Thermostat regulates heating using a range of relevant data including temperature, humidity, occupation levels and the weather. Through Shaspa’s smart algorithms the Thermostat is more efficient, saving money and improving comfort in the home or workplace.
Shaspa’s Service Delivery Framework takes smart instrumentation data from the Shaspa Bridge, stores, analyses and takes action through a robust, scalable, cloud-based system.
Smart shared spaces bring together smart instrumentation and smart inter-connectivity to deliver services where the sum of the whole really is greater than the sum of the parts.
A combination of the building blocks of smart instrumentation and smart inter-connectivity allows households and businesses to create smart shared spaces. Shaspa users create their own smart shared spaces, to make appliances and other smart technology work effectively.
A secure communications link between the Bridge and the Service Delivery Framework further extends the functionality, allowing clients, developers and 3rd parties to create applications and value added services to run on the Bridge.
Shaspa’s intuitive, simple to use interfaces and dashboards support creation and management of smart shared spaces in residential or commercial settings. Our modular approach and user-centered design means the benefits of smart shared spaces are simply delivered to all users.
