The "InteliSocket" or "InteliSensor" are end-nodes which measure electrical consumption, or provide a sensor such as temperature data. These are also nodes in a Zigbee mesh network, reporting to a single gateway.
The InteliGateway is a network router. Each InteliGateway connects to a corporate network via ethernet only, and routes data reports from sockets and sensors to our cloud service. Gateways receive NO incoming network traffic and do not listen on any port, making only outbound HTTP SSL/TLS connections. Each gateway manages a mesh of sockets and sensors with a unique channel and network ID assignment, with all traffic on the mesh encrypted via AES-128.
The cloud service is a database and application engine resident on AWS.
