FAQ

Before you ask a question, check our FAQ


Can I extend the ecosystem by adding in additional devices from other manufacturers?

Yes, you can. The key idea of the ecosystem is that it will always remain open. Oort is interoperable with every device that uses Bluetooth low energy.

Can I monitor and control devices in my home from anywhere?

Yes. We wanted to give you peace of mind and the feeling of control, no matter where you are. When you are not at home, you can connect to the hub via the Internet to monitor and control all of your connected devices.

Do you plan on supporting Windows Phone?

Our main focus during the Kickstarter campaign is iOS and its ecosystem and we’re also actively exploring the capabilities of Android. We plan to support other devices in the future.

Does it work wirelessly?

Due to the implementation of BLE and WiFi technologies, oort requires no wired connections.

Does oort consume a lot of energy?

We care for our planet and are very eco-conscious ourselves. That’s why we designed oort to be extremely power-efficient, though the use of BLE technology.

Does oort work only in houses?

We don’t believe in setting limits because the only limit is your own creativity. That’s why we encourage you to use oort wherever you think it may be suitable.

How do I pair devices?

Ease of use is important for users and we have a short pairing process with the hub that can be completed within just a few minutes. All you have to do is find a device in range using your smartphone and go through a brief pairing menu.

How does oort work?

The hub has a standard power supply.

Is buying oort a one-time payment or does it have any hidden costs?

Our goal is to make oort an affordable set of devices for everyone. There will be no hidden costs, at all. Also, we’ve decided to offer the smartphone app for free.

Is it hard to use?

Simplicity is a core belief for us. While inventing and building oort, we managed to tremendously simplify the process of connecting oort to external devices. It is completely automatic and takes just a few seconds, so you can start using it right away.

Is it necessary to have a working Internet connection to use oort?

oort beacons have been thoughtfully designed to work with any Bluetooth low energy device, regardless of Internet connection. The hub, however, does require access to the Internet in order for users to manage devices remotely.

Is the oort ecosystem safe?

As our ecosystem helps to secure all of your most important things, we designed our system with security in mind. At the same time, we believe that users should be free to personalize devices to meet their needs, so we provide options for users to decide how to secure their personal oort networks. A user can decide to allow every device in range access to the ecosystem or make all of the communications password-protected.

I’ve just received the oort set, how do I start it up?

To dive into the oort ecosystem, you have to plug the hub into a power socket and configure it by connecting to a dedicated website via your desktop or laptop web browser.

What operating system do I need to have in order to control oort using my computer?

One of the most significant challenges was presenting a seamless oort experience regardless of the device. This led us to design a web-based interface. You’ll be able to use it on virtually any OS of your choice, from Linux and OS X to Windows and even Chrome OS.

What smartphones are supported?

In order to control oort devices, your smartphone needs to have Bluetooth 4.0. Thus, we support iOS 7 and Android 4.3
