What is openAlerts?

openAlerts is free, open source software to remotely monitor and control sensors over IP networks. With openAlerts you can configure, control and monitor sensors from a web browser, receive e-mail and text message alerts, and trigger control commands based on sensor conditions.

Who can benefit from openAlerts?

Just about any operation that monitors and controls something can benefit from openAlerts. Telematics, health-care, utilities, security, automation, industrial control, transportation, agriculture - these are only a few examples where openAlerts can be used.

Why openAlerts?

openAlerts is about connecting systems, devices and people. Unfortunately, smart sensing and control technologies are complex, and proprietary solutions are expensive. openAlerts is designed to reduce the complexities and lower the cost. Simplification is the key.

How does openAlerts work?

openAlerts is based on the simple client/server model. A node, or smart object, is any device that supports IP communications (wired or wireless). The node connects directly to sensors and communicates with the server. The server collects the sensor information, makes it available to your web browser, sends out alerts, and executes control commands.

Where does openAlerts run?

openAlerts is a scalable Linux application. Multiple nodes and server can run together on a single board computer. openAlerts can also scale up to thousands of nodes spread across the Internet connected to a central server.

When can I start using openAlerts?

Check the system requirements then scan the documentation . When you are ready, download and install the software. Evaluate, test, and explore the code. Should you need professional help, contact the BoatAlert Corporation.
