What we do

BridgIoT is currently focussing on systems integration and solutions development for Internet-of-Things (IoT) applications. BridgIoT's expertise is in interfacing with non-intelligent sensors (edge devices), reporting this data to the cloud, and presenting or giving access to this data to clients.

BridgIoT originated from the research conducted at Stellenbosch University by Prof MJ Booysen. The research concept was transformed into a product in the form of a smart water heater (geyser) controller. From this initial product, several other products were developed.

One of these earlier products, a smart water meter solution named "Dropula"​, gained traction through a corporate social investment project named the #SmartWaterMeterChallenge. The project was spearheaded by Shoprite who, through collaboration with CapeTalk radio, challenged other corporates to sponsor BridgIoT's smart-water-meter solution to schools in the Western Cape. The Western Cape education department also got involved and the project was kicked off in November 2017.

Since the onset of the project, BridgIoT has grown in size and capability. Several solutions in the IoT space have been developed by its team of employees stretching from the initial water monitoring applications to location tracking solutions and beyond.
