The Thingsquare platform consists of three parts:

  • Backend stack: the database and control system that connects the wireless devices, the users, and their smartphones.
  • User frontends: this is what the users sees on a smartphone or a computer screen

The backend stack is also accessible through an API (Application Programming Interface) that allows other software systems to be connected to the platform. The API is a REST API, accessed via HTTPS. The backend stack software runs either on a server in the cloud, or on a locally hosted server.

In the Thingsquare system, each device connects to the backend stack over a secure Internet connection. The devices use wireless communication to form a self-healing mesh network, allowing large numbers of devices to be connected. Each mesh is connected to the Internet via a transparent gateway.
