IoT ECOSYSTEM OVERVIEW



Sensing

The eye of Gooee’s ecosystem is a custom engineered sensing ASIC, designed to capture environmental data and human activity, along with the capability to monitor LED chip performance.

Facing downwards – the sensors detect motion, direction, footfall and ambient light levels and temperature. Upwards – the sensors monitor light output, colour temperature, quality and operating temperatures.

Furthermore, they calculate the luminaire’s life period since its beginning, facilitating extended warranty opportunities.

Gooee has an ability to integrate its own external sensors or those of a 3rd party, enhancing sensing capabilities for multiple applications.

Control

Wireless Interface Module (WIM)

WIM

To control the luminaires, Gooee has developed its Wireless Interface Module, or WIM. The WIM is a multi-dimming protocol device that communicates with the LED power supply and sensing ASICs to provide control over the luminaire, monitor power consumption, provide beacon functionality for consumer engagement and send data back to the cloud via our gateway. For a lower cost, single box solution, lighting OEMs can enable their existing drivers by integrating Gooee smart components into their own designs utilizing the Gooee CORE.

WIMs, which will be available later in 2017, can be manufactured as stand alone external devices, ideal for retrofit solutions with 0-10V, 1-10V or Dali drivers. For a lower cost, single box solution, lighting OEMs can enable their existing drivers by integrating Gooee smart components into their designs.

The WIM is mains powered, in-line with the driver or fitting, meaning the total wattage can be read from the connected endpoints.

Through the WIM, lighting can be controlled with 0-10V but there are adjustable parameters, for example 0-1V or 1-10V. It can also output Dali and Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) signals. I2C sensors provide power & two-way communication with Gooee’s sensors, for which there is a local debug, reset button & visible LED indicator to display functionality.

Data from sensors is encrypted locally and communication between WIMs and Gateways is encrypted using AES128 within the mesh.

Enterprise Gateway

Each multi-protocol Gooee gateway is capable of singularly managing up to 250 nodes. When paired with Gooee’s Bluetooth ‘Pucks’ you extend the gateway capabilities up to 1000 nodes, simultaneously communicating sensing data and actuation functions with no lag or latency. Gateway interaction can be conducted via the web, Android, iOS and even on the gateway itself through the adjustment wheel and display.’

Using Gooee’s scalable, distributed gateway environment, multiple gateways can operate 1000’s of nodes in unison and be managed locally or remotely via a single interface. Gooee’s sensors, WIMs and Gateways allow for over-the-air updates and adjustable calibration parameters for future proofing.

The API provides three types of keys to control access, with all keys generated by a slow salted-BRcrypt algorithm and checked at run-time for unicity. The engine provides a fine-grained, secure Authorization & Access Control mechanism to support the multi-tenant nature of the environment.

 

Data sent to the cloud from the gateway is extremely secure. State-of-the-art encryption mechanisms such as bcrypt and Two Factor Authentication are used to ensure only authorized parties can decode data.

Partnering with a leading Wireless IC company, groundbreaking bluetooth meshing firmware has been co-developed for Gooee’s ecosystem. Using this meshing protocol, the WIM’s talk to Gooee’s distributed gateway environment, enabling enterprise scale installations that deliver optimum performance and reliability.

IoT Platform

Gooee’s cloud platform is built on a scalable data and analytics engine designed to securely handle the high-volume transactional data generated from the lighting and sensory network.
Running on top of this is Gooee’s application platform. It provides a portal for multi-location configuration of automated control, light & energy analytics, predictive maintenance and beacon management.

Security

Security is a key priority, engineered into every component of the Gooee platform. A secure virtual private-cloud ensures all data is encrypted during every transfer between both internal applications and third-party services. Gooee’s infrastructure is continuously monitored for any attempted intrusions into the system. Gooee is the first full stack ecosystem to sign up with TUV Rheinland on their new IoT Security Certification.

Interoperability

Gooee has been engineered to run any type of lighting installation scenario and is capable of managing multiple building schema’s found in commercial, retail, industrial and residential applications. Interoperability with BMS / BPS solutions is provided via Cloud-to-Cloud and Local APIs. Remotely manage schedules, scenes, rules & energy management profiles via Gooee’s management portal offering a powerful cloud-based light, control & sensing design tool.

Managed data access

Built on a robust security model, Gooee offers a scalable real-time API platform that allows any external client (web, mobile, server) to securely access managed access to data and services. Application development, system integration, data analytics and visualizations are all available with powerful REST & Pub/Sub APIs through Gooee’s developer program, and supported by a team of engineers and solution architects.

Enterprise data store

Our highly scalable, dedicated IoT datastore is fully pen tested, security audited and W3C Compliant. A proven infrastructure built on decades years of engineering expertise, the dynamic date model manages device IDs and complex rule management.

Analytics engine

Our Analytics Engine is designed to abstract the complexity of data analysis, and provides access to historical data in a variety of formats and styles. Our engine stores all historical data and through our API we allow this data to be queried in a variety of methods, driving applications, dashboards, data visualisations and third-party BI tools.

 

Gooee’s cloud is continually evolving. A dedicated team is constantly developing new features, algorithms, data visualizations and expanding the capabilities of the Gooee platform. Our goal is to provide the richest suite of tools that brings everyone; energy savings, building efficiencies and intelligence, and a new wave of revenue generation opportunities.
