Mozilla WebThings is an open platform for monitoring and controlling devices over the web. It is an open-source implementation of emerging Web of Things standards at the W3C.
The new distribution of WebThings Gateway is based on OpenWrt, a Linux operating system targeting embedded devices. Itâ€™s aimed at off-the-shelf consumer routers and can act as a Wi-Fi access point, an improvement over previous WebThings Gateway releases that could only connect to existing wireless networks as clients. At the most basic level, it seeks to reuse programmable (e.g., HTTP and JSON), semantic, real-time (WebSockets), and social (OAuth) web standards for an app layer that simplifies internet of things deployment and management.
