It is recommended to study this manual in parallel with viewing the interface of the of the Rightech IoT Cloud platform.
Rightech IoT Cloud (RIC) platform is a cloud-based Internet of Things platform that solves a set of tasks of IoT projects on interaction with devices, providing convenient and functional web interfaces. RESTful API of the platform allows for integration with external systems. Thus, RIC provides the basis for faster and more efficient development, significantly reducing design time. reducing design time.
Key features of the platform:
  • Connecting devices with different protocols
The choice of hardware for project implementation is not limited to a single The choice of hardware for your project is not limited to a single vendor, protocol or data network. A variety of devices can not only connect to the platform for control and data visualization, but also participate in a single logic.
  • Designing complex automation scenarios
The user-friendly graphical script editor is available to users of any level of experience and does not require writing a single line of code. and does not require writing a single line of code. When developing When developing an automation scenario, you can use both the hardware capabilities hardware capabilities of connected devices, as well as virtual functions, events from external applications, or calculated metrics. or calculated indicators, which allows you to describe any complex scenarios of system behavior. scenarios of system behavior.
  • Data storage and processing
The platform allows you to stream large volumes of data at high speeds to ensure operational control and reliability. The platform allows streaming of large amounts of data at high speeds to provide operational control and reliability data. Data storage depth is customizable for each project.
  • User interfaces and integration with third-party systems
The platform provides a configurable web-based application for real-time monitoring, scenario management and administration. real-time system health monitoring, scenario management, and user administration. users, as well as WebSocket and RESTful APIs for integration with other modules of an IoT project or external systems**. IoT project or external CRM and ERP systems.
  • Scalability
The system includes automatic scaling of services depending on the number of users, devices, and the number of devices they create. number of users, devices and the load they create.
  • Security
Two-factor authentication, flexible system of access rights delineation user access rights and data encryption on all types of connections with the use of advanced algorithms meet the increased security requirements of IoT systems. IoT systems.
The implementation of any solution on the RIC platform involves a number of steps:
  1. Design model
  2. Creating object
  3. Connecting device
  4. Building automation scripts *
  5. Writing handler code *
  6. Using auxiliary entities *
  7. Implementing platform interaction via REST API *
* - optional steps

Platform entities:
  • Model - functional description of the plug-in class;
  • Object - virtual analog of a particular plug-in device, reflects the state of the device and control capabilities;
  • Automation Scenario - a scenario defining the logic of interaction with the device and consisting of the following elements with the device and consists of states and transitions between them;
  • handler - a function applied to the input data stream from the device for filtering and additional calculations;
  • Label - a feature that can be attached to an object;
  • Geofence - selected area on the map.
In the upper right corner of the card of any entity, clicking on the three dots opens additional actions:
 GET dev.rightech.io/api/v1/:store/:id
  • Create copy - copy the selected entity
  • Edit - edit the selected entity
  • Delete - deletes the selected entity


Add an object by clicking on the plus sign.
Select Create MQTT model as the model, the identifier can be you can leave the identifier generated by default, set the name of your object.
Click Save. After that you can already connect your device or any MQTT client.
As an example of connecting to an object on the platform, you can use the MQTT client mosquitto (opens in a new tab). Send temperature data.
You will see the data appear on the platform.
To further secure access to the object, set a login and password on the Edit tab and click Save.
Now you can only connect to an object with a username and password.
To further protect the data transfer process, issue an X.509 certificate.
You can now connect to the object using the secure MQTTS protocol (MQTT + TLS) on port 8883.
If you activate Disallow connection without certificate and Save, the you will be able to connect to the object only via MQTTS.
