Why build with Qeo?

Qeo is a universal language for simple, secure communication between devices and applications. It is designed to be open and future-proof. To make those ambitions achievable the framework introduces a number of principles that make it a robust IoT (Internet of Things) standardization. First and foremost Qeo provides a modern, data-centric pub/sub API that is not only easy to learn but is easy to master thanks to its built-in mechanisms to always find the most efficient path between devices, regardless of which physical network they are connected to. This data-centric API makes discovery, security, connectivity, and filtering a cinch. It turns the home network (and its associated remote devices such as the connected car, remote smartphones/tablets and cloud services) into a rich database of structured information. Any application can tap into that database and use it in ways that the data providers wouldn’t even be able to predict. In a nutshell, Qeo enables true intelligent interconnections between devices.

What platforms does Qeo support?

The Qeo SDK supports the following target platforms:

Android

  • ARM
  • x86

With these supported languages:

  • Java
  • JavaScript

Linux

  • x86
  • RaspberryPi

With these supported languages:

  • C
  • JavaScript
    • Node.js

 

What are some example ideas?

  • Receive alerts of low temperatures in your house while you're away, and then be able to remotely turn the heater on to stop pipes from freezing
  • Check who is at the door when the door bell rings from the comfort of your tablet
  • Create an app which switches off the lights and turns on the heater to increase the room temperature when users start a movie with their set-top box

Since we're giving out Raspberry Pi to teams, you can use Node.js with the Raspberry Pi. We'll also have IP TV set-top boxes to use.
