Cometa powers your IoT back-end with a middleware designed for real-time communication and security. Focus on creating extraordinary IoT user experience. We'll take care of the back-end.
Out of the box IoT middleware for developers, manufacturers, and startups. Applications include network gateways, energy management devices, home automation, robots, smart buildings, lab and industrial equipment.
Use the WebSocket protocol to Cometa IoT endpoints or the HTTP REST API to access one million devices with one server with milliseconds response.
Accessing a device behind a firewall, home router or a corporate VPN requires communication mediated by an edge server in the cloud. Available options include HTTP polling, XMPP and SSH tunneling. While they are all viable alternatives, their limitations become apparent when trying to securely connect a large number of devices, and for devices that require full-duplex, bounded latency and realtime communication. More importantly, they all require specific expertise, resources and time.
Cometa is a message bus that has been designed from the ground up for realtime device connectivity, with low protocol overhead and milliseconds latency, regardless of the number of devices connected at a given time. It fits devices with WiFi and IP connectivity, and it requires a small footprint software adapter in the device. Cometa provides both a REST HTTPS API and WebSocket protocol used in a mobile or Web application for direct 2-way communication with remote devices.
We helps developers and companies to Internet enable their products
Visible Energy, Inc. is a boutique consulting and IoT cloud software firm based in Palo Alto.
We help companies to Internet connect their products using WiFi. We have a combination of inexpensive hardware reference designs, software libraries and the cloud software that are needed to connect smartphone or Web apps to products. Cometa is derived from the software we have designed originally for our own products and for real needs.
We have created and helped other companies in bringing connected products into the market. Since our inception we have pioneered WiFi products to save save electricity by using simple automation and by providing visual feedback in real-time about use and cost of electricity.
Founded in 2008 and based in Palo Alto, California, Visible Energy distinguishes itself from other companies with its many years of technology development and connected products development experience.
