Imont has re-designed the IoT platform from first principles.
We use a decentralized architecture, with software embedded in the hub or device — removing the need for a central cloud platform. Adding support for new devices is a breeze with our device driver framework.
Watch the video for more details from our CTO, Romanas Sonkinas.
Most smart home service providers start with the cloud and as customer numbers grow, the cloud costs soon spiral out of control.
Imont’s software has a tiny footprint and can sit in most smart home hubs. It operates without cloud support — saving the costs of running a cloud platform and the hardware cost of over-specified hubs.
Everything runs locally giving instant response times, strong privacy and security, and high reliability.
Why ship a smart home hub with your device when the hub software can be inside the device itself? Save the cost of a dedicated hub and simplify your users' experience.
Imont's highly efficient use of resources means it fits in unused space on the device, and adds hardly any load to the onboard processor. Embed our hub software in any wifi or networked device: camera, set-top-box, TV, speaker, wifi router, light switch, wall socket... whatever you want to connect.
