The Internet of Things is changing everything about devices, machines, and equipment. Across medical, industrial, and consumer industries, adding remote communication and control to the devices that run our world is creating big new opportunities to bring value to products of every kind. It is now possible to know how your devices are functioning, control them remotely, and enable them to to interact intelligently with the world around them.

The technologies that enable this space are not all that new. Gale Force engineers have been working in these areas for many years and are experts at enabling these capabilities in all types of products. Whether it's for an existing project, or just to brainstorm potential new features or capabilties in your products, give us a call to discuss how we can help.

Home Automation Device

Consumer Device, IoT

Gale Force helped a national brand create a cutting-edge interface to enable first-of-its-kind voice control for a common household product through the Amazon Echo home automation framework.  Our engineers designed a system to leverage a cloud-based IoT hub and a Microsoft Azure deployment to securely allow for communication, intelligent control, and monitoring of performance of their product, which is deployed in thousands of customers' homes around the world.  This solution was a cutting edge example of the latest technology in product intelligence and remote voice control.

 

 

 

 

Nurse Call System

Medical Device, IoT

Several years ago a small business on a shoestring budget came to Gale Force Software with a partially implemented emergency nurse call system. The business had no in-house development capabilities and had lost the contractors working on the project. We completed the system which consists of a Silverlight web application and a multi-threaded server application including a WCF layer and multiple interfaces to off-the-shelf alert signaling devices.

We continue to serve as the company's development team and have helped them continually advance their product and technologies over time.

 

 

 

 

Commercial Access Control Device

Industrial Device, IoT

Gale Force Software engineers have successfully integrated a wireless third-party access control panel into an existing commercially available electronic facility access product that previously had no wireless capability. This effort involved proximity cards (26-bit WiegandTM format) and mag-stripe (ANSI X 4.16/ABA format) facility access cards used at secure points of entry. This integrated system now offers the capability of controlling and monitoring facility entry wirelessly. This application represents the first access-level integration of this proprietary protocol with a manufacturer’s existing access-control product.

This integration effort has enabled the following features, among others: wireless changes to access control, including the addition or deletion of required access credentials; the creation of time zones and access groups; and the real-time wireless monitoring of events and alarms.

 

 

 

 

Diagnostic App for Android

Industrial Device, IoT

This nationally-recognized client came to us to help them develop a field support tool that would enable them to better serve their customers with a product which is deployed across the country.  Gale Force ported an existing code base into a native Android application with multi-touch gestural capabilities and a rich user interface that provides real-time graphing of diagnostic data received from an electronic device via Bluetooth.

Today the solution continues to support tens of thousands of customers throughout the US.
