The client approached us with the ambitious goal of developing an advanced IoT platform that would consolidate various smart devices into a unified and user-friendly ecosystem. The platform must satisfy these requirements

  • Seamlessly integrating an array of smart devices such as cameras, floodlights, sirens, and thermostats, each with distinct protocols and communication methods.
  • Supporting complex scene control and rule-based automation that would allow users to create customized scenarios for their smart devices.
  • Ensuring real-time communication between devices and the mobile app, while managing data synchronization and minimizing latency, was a considerable challenge.
  • As the number of connected devices would vary greatly among users, the platform needed to scale dynamically and maintain high availability.

Our Approach

To address these challenges and provide the client with a cutting-edge IoT platform, our team devised the following solutions:

  • Creating a device abstraction layer using React Native, allowing seamless integration of various devices by standardizing communication protocols and data formats. This approach enabled us to rapidly onboard new devices.
  • Leveraging the power of Kubernetes and Knative to design a microservices architecture that ensured each device’s interaction with the platform was modular and independent. This facilitated easier maintenance and scalability.
  • Implementing Kafka as the event streaming backbone, enabling real-time communication between devices and the mobile app. Kafka’s fault tolerance and scalability ensured reliable data transmission.
  • Seamlessly integrated the mobile app through custom RestAPIs with various digital health devices, enabling real-time health data tracking and integration, thus empowering patients and healthcare providers with accurate insights.
  • Developing an intelligent rule engine to handle complex automation scenarios that utilized MongoDB for storing user-defined rules and Pulsar Client for real-time rule processing. This allowed users to create sophisticated automation scenarios with ease.
  • Leveraging AWS cloud services to implement serverless components for specific functionalities, ensuring efficient resource utilization and cost-effectiveness.

Technologies Used


  • Achieved an impressive 99.99% uptime, demonstrating its robust architecture and reliability.
  • Real-time communication was achieved with an average latency of 100ms, enhancing user experience and responsiveness.
  • The intelligent rule engine processed automation scenarios 50% faster, thanks to the optimized use of Pulsar Client for real-time event processing.
  • The platform is dynamically scaled to accommodate 100,000 concurrent device connections without compromising performance.
  • Post-launch surveys indicated a 90% user satisfaction rate, reflecting the platform’s intuitive design and advanced functionalities.
