Realogy is an easy and ready to install Internet of Things (IoT) technology to enable cyber-physical systems for personal use and for commercial and other business uses. By eliminating the need to develop any IoT function, Realogy allows rapid prototyping, engineering and delivering of IoT systems for many application domains.
In other words, Realogy allows everyone to experience the power of creating, not just using, Internet-connected smart things in homes, cities and other cutting-edge spaces. With the Realogy IoT enabling tools you can smoothly and promptly connect things by doing it yourself or hiring a professional enabler to do it for you.
Once connected, you can control your things wherever you are.
Everything you can connect with Realogy.
Realogy leads IoT system and application Enablers to enable new cyber-physical systems for the IoT in a simple, fast and safe way. Professional Enablers can focus on value-added capabilities for IoT systems and applications rather than to the most basic IoT requirements, and obtain profit from retrofitting and delivering successfully.
In this way, IoT innovation can be mutually beneficial for both the professional IoT Enablers and their clients that are end users. In fact, Enablers benefit from rapid implementation of cyber-physical systems on the basis of their knowledge, and final consumers benefit from performance, security and/or comfort improvement deriving from the daily use of such systems.
It's a boiler, an air conditioner, a washing machine, an oven or any electromechanical product connected to the Internet of Things, including installations such as the public irrigation and lighting systems, and much more connected.
Realer® is a cloud-based and mobile-accessible platform that enables people to remote control their Realino devices and manage interoperable IoT systems and applications, and also enables developers to make B2C business on top of semi-automated e-services.
Realer provides horizontal services for all the IoT systems, applications and their creation, covering device management and ownership, security and privacy, data collection and analytics, and visualisation and external interfaces.
Together with the Realino control devices, Realer and Realino constitute the foundation of the Realogy IoT technology.
Realino® is an end-to-end control device that enables other devices and electromechanic-based systems to be controlled via the Internet through a device-agnostic hardware-software interface of connected actuator-sensor and expansion modules.
Realino is made up of a wide variety of easy and ready to use electronics modules that can be assembled and connected in many ways to construct custom control devices specifically suited to given IoT systems integration.
Of course! You can connect things for your clients as a professional Enabler. For security reasons, you must follow precise instructions provided with Realogy in order to connect specific things.
The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to the extension of the Internet to the world of objects and concrete places.
Basically, the IoT are electromechanical Things connected to the Internet that become recognisable and acquire intelligence thanks to the fact that they can communicate data about themselves and access aggregate information from others.
For "thing" or "object" it can be more precisely understood categories such as: devices, systems, tangible materials and products, goods, machines and equipment. These connected objects that underlie the IoT are more properly defined as smart objects and are characterised by some properties or functionalities.
There are many fields of applicability: from industrial applications to logistics and infomobility, to energy efficiency, remote assistance and environmental protection.
The "Do It Yourself" ("DIY") method of building, modifying and repairing things with Realogy is the way you enable cyber-physical systems without the direct aid of experts or professionals. The Realogy IoT-enabling tools lets you DIY connect things so to be able to control them.
There is a dedicated mobile app where you can connect and view the data of your IoT devices, manage your profile, etc.
There is a second mobile app dedicated to the IoT Enablers with which you can connect your devices to the service platform and manage other technical issues.
Yes, you can use Realogy to connect things around you provided your project is personal. That is, you can prototype your connected air conditioners, boilers, irrigation sprinklers and many more things by retrofitting them or creating new ones for your personal use only.
If you believe that your project using Realogy results in a product, service or solution that can be exploited commercially, contact us to certify your project for professional and industrial applications.
Realogy offers the possibility to develop a large variety of horizontal and cross-cutting IoT applications through integration of Realino and Realer, in particular for IoT smart homes and cities.
People who enable cyber-physical systems for personal use and for commercial and other business uses such as system installers, repairers, craftsmen, electricians, plumbers, designers and do-it-yourselfers.
Generally, any individual or organization that is registered or authorized to do business in his country with experience in area such as installation, repair and assembly of items and equipment in buildings for their functioning, or planning of small- and large-scale renovation projects. Electricians, plumbers, systems integrators, engineers and architects are just a few of the professional categories eligible for becoming IoT Enablers.
Also non business persons such as makers and hobbyists who are 18 years or older can become IoT Enablers to the extent that they use Realogy for personal purposes only.
Because you can make business quickly and easily by connecting a wide range of electromechanical products to the IoT for your customer base.
Although you may already have technical experience and specific knowledge of the interiors of e.g. air conditioners, you still have to solve several technical problems and spent a lot of time to make your air conditioner a cyber-physical system, probably performing operations that are not skilfully made or do not afford complete safety.
With Realogy you will follow a guide that solves all these problems a priori and rationalises times.
The price for your IoT enablement service depends on the type of device you connect and the level of customization requested by your client, and generally is 50 euros per hour. You can add a call or transfer fee in your pricing settings on the Realer platform included in Realogy.
The client will communicate to you his/her preferences through Realer.
When you get an IoT enablement service request, you will be notified by the Realer platform. You have 24 hours to accept or decline a service request before it expires. IoT Enablers who accept their service requests are able to provide more IoT enablement services per day and earn more per day.
Once you have completed the IoT enablement job for your client, you get paid via the Realer platform. Realer has a dedicated payment system that facilitates all payments from clients to IoT Enablers. Payment is made by direct deposit and takes some time for the money to get to you, usually up to 3 business days.
