An introduction to the Realer platform

The Realer platform allows users to control and automate their devices, empowering developers to craft Internet of Things (IoT) solutions to manage connected things, inspire action, and synergize services.

This guide focuses on Realino-compliant control devices, providing developers with an overview of their integration with Realer.

Realino-Realer interaction

At its core, the operation of a Realino-compliant control device follows a structured loop:

  1. Authentication with Realer: The control device initiates authentication with the Realer platform to establish a secure connection and authorize subsequent requests.
  2. Command and sensor data acquisition: Upon authentication, the device retrieves command data from Realer for local processing and execution of actions through connected actuators, while concurrently gathering environmental data through connected sensors.
  3. Feed data transmission: Subsequently, the control device transmits the command confirmation and sensor acquired data back to the Realer platform for analysis.
  4. Loop iteration and session management: The control device re-enters the loop at step 2, perpetuating its functionality. In the event of session expiration, the device seamlessly reinitiates the authentication process from step 1, ensuring uninterrupted operation and data integrity.

The Realino-Realer Interaction diagram below outlines device authentication (oAuth) and the handling of device commands and feeds.
