The ski is the limit
The smart thermostat is booming business and aims high both at home and abroad. Time for the next step, is what Quby thought. That’s why two WSO2 Gurus of Yenlo have been brought in to the IT department, instructed to open up the Quby thermostat to developers by using the WSO2 open source platform. "We like working with enthusiastic software developers with good ideas," Michiel says. "If we’re able to connect these developers to our smart thermostat, the sky is the limit." Customers will be able to do exact calculations of the consumption per household appliance, washing machines will start to talk and boilers will be self-diagnosing, to name a few future plans. In other words: opening up the Quby thermostat will introduce home Automation 2.0, ensuring both comfort and monthly savings.
All out with WSO2
All of these new features will soon become reality. When using the WSO2 platform software, developers gain access to the portal of the Quby thermostat. The authentication works according to the All-Out method, which means that every developer gets his own key, which is connected to a database containing information about the authorizations per system. This saves the Quby team a lot of time, as malfunctioning or even threatening apps can be easily disconnected.
By monitoring the API of the Quby thermostat through the WSO2 platform, Quby also gains insight into the number of visitors using the applications. This is important information to Eneco, who’s hereby able to adapt his services to the needs of the end user.
