Vitro is an IoT innovator

Vitro Technology delivers solutions to customers requiring secure monitor, control of remote assets, products and equipment.

Vitro has a unique open-source software philosophy for loT: we leverage mainline Linux, U-Boot and OpenSSL with top service providers Amazon AWS and DigiCert to deliver an unprecedented loT chain of trust from sensor to cloud.

Security is our #1 concern

We worked with Amazon, DigiCert and Microchip to build our hardware-crypto secure gateway: Vitro Crystal. Crystal gateways come completely provisioned for secure AWS loT communications and development.

We call it AWS loT in a box. Our Customers call it the shortest path from a concept to live solution.

Services

AWS IoT

  • Secure Vitro API leverage AWS IoT to manage MQTT messaging to Gateway and Edge devices
  • Over the Air (OTA) updating of Gateway and Edge devices
  • “No touch” secure provisioning and authentication of new devices
  • IoT Registry and Device Shadow support in AWS IoT
  • Rules engine and optional Lambda support using GreenGrass
  • DynamoDB, MongoDB and SQL support for data storage
  • InfluxDB for optimized handling of time series data

Dashboards

  • IoT data stored in structured databases can be hosted on AWS-Vitro, AWS-Private and offline databases.
  • Data can be made into visuals using a variety of tools, including AWS QuickSight and Grafana
  • Data can also be formatted into visual forms using third party software, e.g. Grafana.
  • Data can be segmented into almost any time sample (Day, Month, Year).
  • Dashboard can be shared using QuickSight, Grafana, other mobile, hosted, social sites and apps.

Analytics

  • IoT data can be queried and interpreted on a variety of platforms, including the AWS Analytics.
  • Data can be normalized and analyzed using run-time analytics to identify normal and abnormal states over a large operating sample.
  • Predicitive manintenance and machine learning can be based on IoT data sets, leading to cost reductions and improved performance.
  • IoT data can be cross referenced with data sets from weather, maps and demographic services to enrich business modeling.

Industries

Water

Vitro Crystal Gateway and Shard Edge boards interface directly with equipment from our partners KSBApator and other industry leaders to architect end-to-end water and fluid management systems. Monitoring includes secure, integral IoT reporting and control of power consumption, duty cycles and flow metering. The Vitro Crystal and Shard hardware permit remote updates and bug fixes to keep devices reporting online and operating at peak efficiency.

Tank

Vitro Crystal Gateway and Shard Edge boards interface directly with equipment from Morrison Brothers and other API-approved meters to build and operate tank and fluid management systems. Monitoring includes secure, integral IoT reporting and control of solar harvesting, wireless communication, metered storage. The Vitro Crystal and Shard hardware permit remote updates and bug fixes to keep devices reporting online and operating at peak efficiency.

Energy

Vitro Crystal Gateway and Shard Edge boards interface directly with equipment from VicorDelta and Vertiv to build and AC-DC and DC-DC power systems. Monitoring includes secure, integral IoT reporting and control of solar harvesting, wireless communication, metered storage. The Vitro Crystal and Shard hardware permit inversion efficiency and power consumption in Edge devices like Vitro DC-DC LED power systems. Data can be analyzed for monitor of nominal ranges, anomaly reporting, machine learning and predictive maintenance. The Vitro Crystal and Shard hardware permit remote updates and bug fixes to keep devices reporting online and operating at peak efficiency.

Media

Vitro Crystal Gateway and Shard Edge boards interface directly with LED equipment providing integral services ranging from power solutions with Vicor,  Delta and Vertiv  and secure CMS services via the Vitro API. The API permits secure software control of displays connected with Crystal gateways. Media can be controlled on an event basis to deliver timely content, including: countdowns, day/date placements, weather events, social media, traffic and more. Unlike traditional “playlists”, the Vitro API delivers secure, centralized programmatic control over a single screen or an entire network.

Gas/Retail

Vitro Crystal Gateway and Shard Edge boards interface directly with LED monolith pricers and embedded video screens. Monitoring includes secure, integral IoT reporting and control of displays to protect from errors and tampering by local operators in changing prices using manual TV remote-style controls. Vitro technology builds real-time feedback from locations, delivering prices and content to monoliths and screens. In addition, Vitro displays serve Syndicated Advertising content directly to LEDs in the Monolith, bundling security, control, monitor and OPEX profit all in one system.

Legacy & Custom

Vitro Crystal Gateway and Shard Edge boards interface into legacy systems like SCADA and analog equipment (meters, sensors, motors and switches). Monitoring includes secure, integral IoT reporting and control of virtually any type of equipment, from pumps to power supplies – from locks to lights. The Shard also has multiple AD inputs capable of driving analog equipment, delivering secure digital feedback on states, rates and readings for local hardware, whether it is analog or digital.
