Plug&Play Sensing Systems to Power and Secure the Industrial Internet

MicroPnP Peripherals

MicroPnP Peripherals are self-identifying sensors and actuators that connect to MicroPnP Wireless Devices to provide plug-and-play sensing and control. The MicroPnP software automatically installs and configures all drivers, eliminating the cost and complexity of deploying an IoT network. Sensor data can be accessed over high-level APIs without any embedded programming.

A complete list of available sensors and actuators can be found here. If your application requires a sensor not currently on list, please contact us as new options are being added monthly and custom sensor integration can be achieved with lead times measured in weeks.

MicroPnP Wireless Device

The MicroPnP Wireless Device acts as a wireless hub for up to three plug-and-play sensors (e.g. humidity or temperature) and actuators (e.g. relays or buzzers). The device comes in both SmartMesh IP™ and LoRaWAN versions for shorter respectively longer range applications.

MicroPnP Wireless Gateway

The MicroPnP Wireless Gateway using SmartMesh IP™ controls a self-healing mesh network of up to 100 MicroPnP Wireless Devices. The gateway provides coordination and connectivity, and also an intuitive web interface that supports network and device health monitoring, secure device commissioning and secure software updates.

VersaSense IoT Cloud

The VersaSense IoT Cloud can be set-up as both a Public or a Private Cloud, and is also available as a secured Service. The VersaSense IoT Cloud provides for high-performance processing and storage of all collected sensor data in time-series databases. Customizable dashboards provide flexible access to data analytics and visualization, a variety of connectors provide out of the box links to major IoT platforms and high-level APIs allow for tailored development. The VersaSense IoT Cloud also provides management services including network and device availability and fault monitoring, proactive health management and reporting.

VersaSense Technology

Our technology is based on a decade of world-leading academic research and experience in the IoT field.


VersaSense devices automatically identify all sensing and actuation peripherals, install their drivers, and brings them online in seconds.

Ultra Low-Power

VersaSense devices are highly optimized in terms of power consumption and may operate up to 10 years on a single battery, dramatically lowering total cost of ownership

Extremely reliable

VersaSense builds upon industry-proven wireless networking technology, with both a SmartMesh IP™ product line guaranteeing 99.999% data reliability even in the most challenging conditions, and LoRa products delivering multi kilometer range.

Instant Cloud Integration

The VersaSense solution grants immediate access to your data and allows for further analysis and visualization. It provides connectors to cloud based platforms such as Microsoft Azure IoT Suite, Amazon AWS IoT, GE Predix Industrial Internet and Siemens MindSphere IoT OS, as well as high-level APIs.

End-to-End Security

VersaSense applies NIST certified security technologies that guarantee data confidentiality, integrity, and authenticity between individual devices and the cloud.


The entire VersaSense software stack builds upon open IEEE, IETF, and IPSO protocols and standards and therefore ensures smooth and future-proof integration for everyone.
