Wzzard™ Sensor Platform

The Wzzard™ is an easy to use, complete wireless sensor connectivity platform for the rapid deployment of scalable, intelligent, reliable IoT networking in remote and demanding environments.


Using the IoT ready open standard protocol, MQTT, semantic sensor data is delivered to the application layer over a secure, scalable, resilient wireless SmartMesh IP mesh network.


Wzzard™ uses the lightweight, publish/subscribe messaging transport MQTT protocol for sensor communications. MQTT is an extremely simple messaging protocol created for M2M and IoT applications over wireless networks. Because of its efficient distribution of information to single or multiple receivers, low power usage and minimized data packets, it is ideal for mobile or remote locations.

SmartMesh IP is based on 6LoWPAN and wireless IEEE 802.15.4e standards. SmartMesh IP creates full-mesh networks, sometimes referred to as “mesh-to-the-edge” networks. SmartMesh IP networks use a “triple-play” of wireless mesh technologies—time diversity, frequency diversity, and physical diversity—to assure reliability, resiliency, scalability, power source flexibility, and ease-of-use. At the core the technology is an intelligent mesh network with advanced algorithms and power saving technologies that enable powerful features including:

  • Ultra low power consumption
  • Deterministic power management and optimisation
  • Auto-forming mesh technology for a self-healing and self-sustaining network
  • Dynamic bandwidth support, load balancing and optimisation
  • Network management and configuration
  • Zero collision low power packet exchange
  • Scalability to large, dense, deep networks

The Wzzard Intelligent Edge Node collects data from the sensor; then organizes and transforms that data into useful and relevant information easing the processing burden on upstream resources. Configurable by smart phone or tablet, nodes can minimize data traffic by only communicating exceptions to specified threshold or pre-determined alert levels. If the gateway is using the cellular network, this reduces the cost of the data plan. Configuration options can also include geo-location, device name and uptime to format data for easier analytics. With the use of control time synchronization, the Intelligent Edge Node can be programmed to maximize battery life.
