Intelligent MeshBots that can run in the Cloud or the Edge. MiOS – the operating system that runs from cloud to edge, and edge to cloud.

Global meshbots run in the cloud are and designed to optimize load-balancing and redundancy, especially in larger-scale deployments. They can do everything a local meshbot can do, but will also intelligently deploy rules across all your devices and controllers using our proprietary Meshene AI. This architecture accelerates overall rule execution speeds, eliminates bottle-necks and offers snappier, tighter integration with services and online apps.

Local meshbots let you interact with devices which have been imported to a specific controller. 

You can choose the controller associated with the meshbot at the top-left of the meshbot creation interface:

Virtual Device/Service Capability

Just like you can connect to an existing app or device, you can also mix-and-match the capabilities of multiple services and devices to create a brand new virtual device/service. This allows you to connect, automate and visualize your new virtual item just like you would with any other device or service.

There are two main types of devices you can add to a Local or Global meshbot – physical and virtual:

Physical Devices

These are what most people think of when they hear the term ‘smart device’. Example smart devices often found in homes and buildings include thermostats, light bulbs, door locks, refrigerators, thermostats, motion detectors, cameras, alarms, doorbells and stereos.

Virtual Devices

Virtual devices work exactly the same way as physical smart devices. They can save you time by consolidating multiple actions to a single command and can act as a ‘universal translator’ for unsupported devices.

Why use a virtual device?

MiOS lets you create a virtual device and set up its states and commands. These commands can be mapped to real device/service commands or cloud device/service commands. A virtual switch, for example, lets you control physical devices that are monitoring the on/off state of the switch.

Simplicity. You can activate multiple automations, routines and scenes via a single command to a virtual switch. This saves you the time and effort of remembering multiple commands to operate different devices.

Compatibility. Virtual switches let you control devices that are not supported and/or directly controlled by your voice assistant. You first set the virtual switch to control one of your physical devices then import the virtual switch to Alexa (for example). You can then issue voice commands to the virtual switch rather than the device itself. The switch activates a meshbot in EZlogic which in-turn sends a command to the physical device. 

To act as a switch for devices that don’t have switch support.

To act as an ‘IF’ for your routines. For example, you may have a routine that turns on your light bulbs in the morning. You can make this routine conditional to the ‘ON’ state of a virtual switch. If your family wants to sleep late, or intends to sleep late the next day, you can easily disable the morning routine with an ‘OFF’ command to your voice assistant (Alexa etc).

Connect, automate and visualize easily now.
