The Device Hub is your single interface to integrate any connected device into your workflows. In combination with our IoT gateways and the open API, the Device Hub is a modular and scalable solution to capture data from connected sensors and remotely manage devices all along their lifecycle.
You maintain complete sovereignty over your data with on-premise solutions and end-to-end encryption of data streams - all the way from the device to the database.
The Device Hub is available as SaaS solution to get started quickly and scale with your growing business. Validate your use case without the need to invest into a major IT project.
Our plug-and-play gateways are a robust solution to capture data from Bluetooth devices, in locations with bad mobile reception, or to minimize required user interaction.
Our main focus are medical wearable devices and their application for clinical research and health care. The Device Hub is GCP compliant and in use for device and treatment validations.
Open REST API
We are integrators. Knowing the challenges of getting different systems to work with each other first hand, we make sure that our solutions provide open and robust interfaces.

How it Works.
Not every device can communicate directly over the internet based on a Wifi or mobile network connection. Bluetooth devices and devices used in locations with insufficient mobile network coverage require a gateway as intermediary.
Leitwert provides software to turn any connected device into a gateway – be it a smart phone or standalone hardware like a Raspberry Pi. This way, you can connect any device anywhere. Gateways are managed remotely with the Device Hub to monitor their status and coordinate roaming within a gateway network.
Devices communicate with the Device Hub via its REST API to request updates and their current settings. The Device Hub maintains a digital twin of each device, which reflects its current state – like its firmware version or settings configuration. Every exchange between the devices and the Device Hub is logged for auditability and efficient customer support.
Each device can be assigned to a specific distribution channel to manage access to new firmware releases. Administrators can set up separate channels as desired, e.g. for testing, factory programming, different regions or licensing models. Channel subscriptions are defined as device setting.
The server-side update delivery procedures are adaptable to your needs. The Device Hub can for example check update compatibility based on the digital twin of a device before providing the download link. Another use case is to implement a separate procedure for factory programming.
For device-server-authentication and communication security, the Device Hub can manage device specific encryption keys and access tokens. User rights to change settings or release updates can be managed per device group and workflows like a 4-eye-principle are enforceable.
You can integrate the Device Hub with your current IT infrastructure via its REST API, allowing you to deploy firmware directly from your repository of choice or to synchronize existing device lists.
The Device Hub is your device-agnostic logistics center to direct the data streams of all integrated devices in a single place. It makes sure that data streams are stored in the right database and can only be accessed and shared by its rightful owners.
Data streams are automatically enriched with metadata. This can include information taken from the digital twin of a device (e.g. settings at time of measurement) or application specific attributes like who is wearing the device or which factory is being inspected by a robot.
Stream processing pipelines allow you to deploy your own analytics algorithms, transform data and to analyze data streams in real time. Alarms can be defined and triggered based on incoming data. In the notification center you define who receives a push message for certain alarms or other data events.
All functions and data can be accessed via the open REST API, giving you a single interface to utilize data from any device in your business processes, export data for analysis with your software of choice or to feed your customized dashboards. You can adapt a white-label version of the standard front-end to your needs or develop a complete customized front-end based on the API.
The Device Hub is available as Software As A Service. If you want complete data sovereignty, you can direct all data to your own databases with end-to-end encryption or even host the Device Hub on-premise.
The Device Hub maintains an immutable audit trail and provides configurable approval workflows to comply with your quality requirements and application specific regulations like GCP, HIPAA or ISO 13485.

The Device Hub offers granular permission management to define roles for user- and device groups. Rights can be given for specific objects like data streams or device models. It allows for example to give a distributor administrator rights for a subset of devices to provide 1st level support and onboard customers.
A saferpay.com integration is available for online payments, e.g. to sell upgrades and additional features to device users. Such features can then automatically be enabled based on a firmware upgrade or by changing a device setting.
For on-premise installations, the Device Hub provides endpoints to monitor system performance e.g. with Prometheus.
