Securely access, control and manage IoT edge devices from anywhere with...

Web Browsers

Secure web access to IoT devices from anywhere.

macchina.io Remote Manager provides secure and transparent remote access to the built-in web server of a device. Access the web interface of your device from anywhere using any web browser.

Apps & Voice Assistants

Remote control of IoT devices with apps and voice assistants.

With macchina.io Remote Manager, mobile apps on Android or iOS devices, or voice assistants like Alexa can remotely and securely access the REST API of an IoT or embedded device.

SSH and VNC

Secure remote management via shell and desktop.

macchina.io Remote Manager provides secure remote forwarding of TCP-based protocols, including SSH and VNC, for secure remote management, user assistance, troubleshooting and debugging.

Benefits

Secure Remote Access

The internet has become a dangerous place for devices. With macchina.io Remote Manager, you don't have to expose your device to the internet using a public IP address or port forwarding on a NAT router. Your device can stay behind a firewall or router, and you can exactly control who is allowed to access it remotely. Of course, all communication between your device and Remote Manager is encrypted with TLS.

Easy & Quick Deployment

A remote access solution with macchina.io Remote Manager can be set up in less than one hour. Remote Manager can run on premises or on a virtual machine in the cloud - it's your choice. The Remote Manager device agent can be easily integrated into Linux-based devices or gateways, or can run on a Windows machine in the same network as the device.

Enhance Your Product and Service Offerings

macchina.io Remote Manager provides secure remote access for your in-house support staff, external service partners, or end users. A powerful user management and permissions system controls who has access to which devices. Besides providing remote access for customer assistance, support, servicing and trouble-shooting, Remote Manager simplifies integration of mobile apps or voice assistants with your devices.

Flexible & Cost Effective

The Remote Manager web user interface can be highly customized to fit your device design and branding. Plug-ins and REST APIs allow deep integration with your own applications and systems.
Deploying a remote access solution based on macchina.io Remote Manager is much more cost effective than rolling your own solution.

Features

Secure

The tunnel connections between device and Remote Manager and also the connection between client (web browser) and Remote Manager are secured using TLS.

Works Across NAT Routers and Firewalls

Through a secure tunnel to the macchina.io Remote Manager the edge device becomes just another host on the internet, addressable via its own URL and protected by the Remote Manager server against unauthorized or malicious access.

Cloud-Ready and Scalable

The macchina.io Remote Manager typically runs on a virtual Linux server or in a container. Multiple instances can be run in a load-balancing setup if required to reliably handle a very large number of simultaneously connected devices and user sessions.

Flexible and Customizable

macchina.io Remote Manager can easily be customized via plugins to customize the user interface or add customer-specific features. It optionally supports LDAP for user authentication and provides a REST API for integration with customer-specific or third-party applications.

No VPN Required

macchina.io Remote Manager does not require a VPN. Devices connect to Remote Manager using a TLS-protected WebSocket connection. This connection is then used for tunneling TCP connections to the device. Therefore, macchina.io Remote Manager is the perfect solution in situations where a VPN cannot be used for technical or legal reasons.

Supports All Kinds of Connected Devices

Remote Manager works with home automation devices, monitoring and control systems for green energy facilities, remote automation and data acquisition devices, data loggers, device servers, IoT gateways, POS systems, IP cameras and network video recorders, telecommunication equipment, industrial automation systems, remote edge computing infrastructure, or any other connected device with a built-in web, SSH, or VNC server.

Bandwidth-Saving

The Remote Manager acts as a transparent, caching proxy for devices, typically caching images, stylesheets and JavaScript files. This is quite useful if a device is connected using a low-bandwidth network like GPRS, as it significantly speeds up the loading time of the device's web pages.

API

The REST API provides full access to all device management features of the reflector server. Using the API, devices can be created and deleted, device properties can be retrieved, modified, added and deleted, and available devices can be queried.
