What is SmartConnector?
When developing solutions there is frequently a need for software that can bridge the gap between Schneider Electric Building Management Systems (BMS) and third party systems and data sources. This software goes by varying names: protocol shims, glue logic or more generally, middleware. As different projects are analyzed, patterns begin to emerge where this middleware performs similar actions with only minor variations from solution to solution. SmartConnector was conceived to be this middleware framework.
How SmartConnector Works
SmartConnector is an extensible and configurable application framework. At its simplest, SmartConnector is a multi-threaded Windows service. Threads are configured to execute custom Processor code written by solution providers and integrators.
SmartConnector also provides the infrastructure to provision HTTP endpoints. These endpoints can either serve data to Schneider Electric BMSs and third party clients via Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure Web Services (EWS) SOAP protocol or generic RESTful services.
