WebThings Gateway for Wireless Routers
The Mozilla IoT team has been working on evolving WebThings Gateway into a full software distribution for consumer wireless routers. Today, with the 0.9 release, we’re happy to announce the availability of the first experimental builds for our first target router hardware, the Turris Omnia. These builds are based on the open source OpenWrt operating system and feature a new first-time setup experience, which enables you to configure the gateway as a router and Wi-Fi access point itself.
Introducing Mozilla WebThings
Project Things is graduating from its early experimental phase and from now on will be known as Mozilla WebThings. This platform for monitoring and controlling devices over the web consists of the WebThings Gateway, a software distribution for smart home gateways focused on privacy, security and interoperability, and the WebThings Framework, a collection of reusable software components that help developers build their own web-connected things.
Home Monitoring with Things Gateway 0.6
The latest version of the Things Gateway rolling out today comes with new home monitoring features that let you directly monitor your home over the web, without a middleman. That means no monthly fees, your private data stays in your home by default, and you can choose from a variety of sensors made by different manufacturers.
Build your own web things with the Things Framework
Last year Mozilla started Project Things to help developers connect physical “things” to the web in a safe, secure and interoperable way. Now, with the 0.4 release of the Things Gateway, you can add native web things to your gateway, to control them alongside all your other smart home devices. The advantage of native web things is that they don’t need a custom gateway adapter because they follow a common standard using existing web technologies.
