DEK Technologies Telegea Smart Hub hardware is now available for purchase on the maker market place “Tindie”.
The Telegea Smart Hub is designed to be a gateway between the real world and the communication network targeted mainly at IoT applications. It is a custom hardware built around the RaspberryPi Compute Module and therefore compatible with the software from the RaspberryPi ecosystem. It provides a number of standard interfaces for sensors to acquire the data and actuators to control connected devices. Easy to use connectors and a DIN rail case are provided to ease installation.
The Smart Hub connects to the communication backbone via Ethernet or Wifi (optional) and therefore can provide the data to a cloud service or be controlled remotely.
It is completely user configurable, so different numbers of sensors, actuators or external equipment can be combined with each other. This flexibility allows for many different deployment scenarios which goes from a simple data logging device to a complete smart home solution.
The Telegea Smart Hub and all of its hardware components are well documented. Specifications and data sheets are freely available. Each component is supported by open source drivers and additional software that can be obtained free of charge and modified to fit specific needs. Read more…
