Why Realin?

Agile development with focus on product

The implementation of a new service or software product can start from an idea or a concept. Thus, the scope of product development varies from the visual branding of an existing core application to completely new functionality and web applications. 

The development is done with the focus on the final product. Before coding, we plan the business cases, product functionality, and visual designs together with our customer. We always invest in usability and user experience.

We operate with agile development that avoids freezing the design too early or unnecessary over specifying. The project progresses iteratively. We provide a test versions as soon as possible for evaluation, feedback, and trials. We take use of our IoT platform and cure software to streamline the product development. The life cycle of the product is managed with changes, extensions and continuous maintenance.

The Realin's cloud platform provides open interfaces, through which a customer company or a third party can utilise sensor data in reporting and applications.

Our IoT platform is a key component in all of our operations, and we take care of it ourselves.


In its simplest form, the sensor data application by Realin is extended with the customer's brand, product name and internet domain name.

The implementation may also need a single sign-on support, deployment of the servers on customer's data center or cloud platform, and extended interfaces between different applications. In this case, IoT reporting and sensor applications can be part of a larger service, while maintaining a consistent user experience.

Web applications

Existing web applications by Realin are available as core software for new products. Their functionality can be extended and modified according to service requirements. The applications are modern web apps, also suited for mobile devices.

Realin's RealEco is a versatile sensor data reporting application. RealEco is best suited for services with professional users and varying types and amounts of sensors.

Realin's Meter is a web application best suited for device manufacturers. It can be connected to one or more IoT devices and sensors. The application is very clear and easy to use, and the deployment can be automated with a one-time code.

Realin's House is an application for monitoring one or more properties and property-related systems. It is connected to real estate systems, such as home automation, cold automation, and other measurements through suitable interfaces.

Realin's Home is suitable for remote monitoring and control of an individual property or apartment for both professional and consumer use. The application is connected to building automation extended with other measurements, e.g. wireless sensors. 


We can customise these product to suit your business and to look your business. Usually, the color scheme, product names, and web domain are changed, and of course the information content required by the new application. Extensive functional changes can be made on a customer-specific basis.

The web applications use Realin’s IoT platform and all platform interfaces and integrations are available. We have connected hundreds of different devices and larger systems in different projects.

In cold monitoring solutions, measurement data is retrieved from the automation or directly from equipment. Measurements can be expanded with, for example, wireless sensors. The connection to cold automation depends on the interface provided by the automation supplier or operator.

Cold monitoring applications typically implement:

  • Monitoring of storage conditions and temperature stability.
  • Detection of deviations and alerting
  • Detecting and preventing of potential problem situations
  • Reports for required by public regulators

LoRa low-power radio technology

We have years of experience in utilising LoRa technology in a variety of applications.

LoRa is a global and important part of IoT technologies, which enables reliable data transfer and years of operation even with battery-powered wireless sensors and actuators. The amount of data transferred is small, which suits sensor applications. Due to an efficient radio technology, the transmission distance of the wireless device can range from several hundred meters to tens of kilometers, while the battery can last for years. Data transmission is always encrypted and bidirectional, thus sending downlink control commands to the device is also possible.

As LoRa utilises a license-free frquency band, anyone can set up a private LoRa network or alternatively use a public service provider. In Finland, Digita Oy offers a public nationwide LoRa service.

The product range of LoRa devices is wide and constantly growing. LoRa measurements can be supplemented with other data sources. In addition to the sensors, the LoRa transmitter may include, for example, a pulse counter or a Modbus interface with which existing system data can be transmitted wirelessly.

The keywords are, LoRaWAN, AES, 868 MHz, Modbus, M-BUS.

Maintenance, support and backup

We maintain the services in the cloud or on a customer's server platform. We operate in accordance with the service level agreement (SLA), which includes 24/7 availability, technical supervision and technical support.

Our automation continuously monitors the services and alerts us automatically in case of possible problems. For critical applications, we provide 24h help desk service.

The service agreement also includes updates of the software components and new functionality developed generated by Realin's internal product development. We take care of data security and data backup.

The keywords are NAGIOS, ELK STACK, SENTRY.


Research and development

Our background is in the research project of Tampere University of Technology. As a result of the project, Realin Oy was founded and experienced researchers moved to the new company. We employ doctors, masters, and graduates in the field of engineering.

We have worked on numerous demanding research and development projects both before and after the founding of Realin. In addition to software technology, we also have background in embedded systems, communication protocols, and mathematics. We have been developing wireless sensor networks and their applications for 20 years.

Due to this, our strength is end-to-end expertise, we are able to help our customers in various areas and technologies of product development.
