WideSky Hub

Seamlessly connect and control your sensors from the cloud

Reliable and scalable data infrastructure

WideSky Hub gives you easy and economical access to your data by forming a highly resilient wireless mesh network that removes the need for hardwired cables.

With on-board data logging, banking-class public-key cryptography, and a seamless interface with WideSky Cloud, the WideSky Hub ensures data continuity.

Economical

Quickly build a vast network of sensors with minimal installation time while unlocking access to new streams of data that were previously not feasible.

Reliable

Retain control of your network while reducing telco costs with your private IP based mesh network. Support up to 250 nodes in a single mesh that can self-heal and reconfigure with no single point of failure.

Simple

Our commissioning tools and long-range mesh networking make it easy to integrate a range of different sensors while simplifying previously complicated wired solutions.

Key Features

Long-range

The WideSky Hub easily supports node-to-node distance of up to 200m line of sight or link through 2 office building floors.

Flexible IO

Built-in IO for connecting your sensors:

  • 2 x RS-485 ports
    • Modbus RTU Logging, or
    • Serial to Ethernet gateway
  • 2 x Digital inputs (with pulse mode option)
  • 2 x Latching relay control
  • 2 x Solenoid valve control

Interoperable

Design with open standards to maximise interoperability:

  • Data Transmission and WideSky Cloud interface - CoAP
  • Networking and Security - Thread Protocol (pre-certified) and IPv6
  • Time synchronisation - NTP

Real-time control

Securely perform low latency control of sensors directly from WideSky Cloud.

Precision

A supercapacitor backed real-time clock ensures all locally logged data is precisely time-stamped.

Centrally Managed

Maintain all WideSky Hubs centrally from WideSky Cloud with configuration downloads and OTA firmware updates.
