Why Bodhi Uses IoT Technology

Bodhi takes full advantage of the Internet of Things, allowing us to pursue an inclusionary business model that encourages you to pick and chose those devices and systems that work best for your needs.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is made up of all of the devices, sensors, and systems that connect to and exchange data over the Internet and other networks. The last few years has seen an explosion of the technology, with something like 10 billion active IoT devices as of 2021.

In building management, the IoT includes a wide variety of devices that Bodhi can connect to, including:

  • Thermostats
  • Lighting and shading controls
  • Door locks
  • Occupancy sensors
  • Door/window position sensors
  • Water flow, flood, and leak sensors
  • Water shutoff valves
  • Humidity sensors and exhaust fans
  • Air quality sensors
  • Carbon monoxide detectors
  • Water and electric meters
  • Alarms


And through the Bodhi platform we can include control systems from:

  • Crestron
  • Lutron
  • QSC
  • Rako
  • and many other companies


We have carefully designed the Bodhi API to be able to connect to all of these devices and systems, bringing their management under a small number of Bodhi applications including the Dashboard, the Scheduler, and the Bodhi Guest and Resident Apps.

An inclusionary business model

Most manufacturers pursue an exclusionary strategy, attempting to lock clients into their own, proprietary hardware and software.

Our strategy is inclusionary, encouraging you to pick and choose those devices and systems that work best for your specific needs, but bringing them together under a single, simple-to-use umbrella.

It’s the Internet of Things that makes that unique and powerful strategy possible.
