08 Feb Windows App Development – “Energy HQ”
8 FEB 2018
The client is a Global Marketing Communications Organization in the USA: Deployed for hospitals and Apartments.
The Client required a systematic solution to computerize their customer data reporting facility for the various medium with sensing and scheduling features and talking to their wireless ZigBee hardware via TCPIP protocols, the application, in turn, helps the user to optimize the energy consumption lowering the recurring cost and contributing to a green environment.
The client approached Star Knowledge with their unique business requirement and our team of custom software developers, proposed for a Windows Service & Windows App Development post-consultation and requirement analysis.
The wireless ZigBee modules were responsible for power on or power off the unit there was no intelligence or processing capability in it, the Controller wireless ZigBee was responsible to send instructions to each wireless ZigBee unit. Hence the entire intelligence needed to be on a service which monitors all the unit via Controller. This also required a unit registration module with the controller.
- Wireless ZigBee Controller: The Service needs to send instructions to Controllers to perform an action.
- Wireless ZigBee: The Service needs wireless ZigBee status to take necessary action.
The Star Knowledge Technical Team developed a windows service and a windows application with .NET, MS SQL servers as underlying components. With our approach to Windows app development, we built an application that took all its input from the users, and the data was processed based on the business intelligence set by the user in it. Also, the Windows web application was capable of registering the new wireless ZigBee units by enabling the discovery mode using the application. Testing included the development environment and testing in a staging environment to ensure production capabilities and user acceptance. Solution work effort included:
- Windows Service: this was responsible to query the current state and take necessary actions.
- Windows Application Development: UI to select parameters and constraints and generate reports reflecting the optimization.
Results & benefits obtained
The key benefits realized as a result of the successful custom Widows app development project include:
- Provided User in quicker access to log information resulting in more timely
- An easy to use 3 click Simple interface
- A better performance intelligent service due to its independent architecture
