2. DEVELOPMENTSeluxit was able to help Gardena into the market in a very short timeframe because Seluxit already had a range of finished technology that could solve Gardena’s problems. In close cooperation with Gardena, Seluxit developed embedded hardware in the Gardena products which sends to and receives wireless signals from Seluxit’s IoT Platform via a home gateway. The Seluxit IoT Platform enables the app as well as forwarding product-usage data to Gardena’s ERP.
3. PRODUCTIONEach of the Gardena products needed to be produced, including sourcing the bill of materials as well as managing the generation of unique keys in each product to ensure security. Moreover, the products’ radio technology needed to be certified and tested during the manufacturing process. All of these topics were handled by Seluxit.
4. OPERATIONSeluxit manages the operation and maintenance of the Gardena Smart system. Over-the-air updates ensure that any bug fixes are deployed to every device in the field automatically. At peak operation in July 2018, tens of thousands of products generated 1,3 billion events or 9TB of data, all handled by Seluxit.
