What is OORT?
OORT is a unique, patent-pending technology that allows people to make their world smarter. With OORT, users can control their working or living environment with a single app and create smart systems tailored to their needs. OORT is simple, universal and designed to create comfort and peace of mind. OORT’s vision is to enhance people’s lives through a rich ecosystem of smart devices that bring new usability and security to homes and offices alike. We design sophisticated hardware and software that transforms ordinary devices into smart ones and enable our customers to control them from anywhere, including their home, office or anywhere in between. Built around OORT SmartHub, the OORT ecosystem consists of a wide range of sensors (temperature, smoke, humidity, air quality, motion, light) and smart devices (lamps, lights, sockets, etc.). Due to its open architecture, OORT easily interacts with existing 3rd-party wearable devices and our modular beacons are designed for easy integration with 3rd-party hardware such as garage doors, motorized windows curtains, coffee machines, etc. OORT’s software enables our customers to control and interact with all devices via a mobile interface or web browser, both from close proximity or remotely.
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 SMART. Thus, we support iOS 7.0 or higher and Android 4.3 or higher.
