About us

Aptus is an innovation and realization company for Internet of Things (IoT) solutions. We combine hardware (electronics) and software (embedded software, cloud, mobile and web applications) with several connectivity solutions (Wifi, Bluetooth, Zigbee, Sigfox, LoRa, ..) to help connect devices and people.

We help companies explore exciting opportunities in connected solutions and digital services. Our services cross the border between design and invention; we push the possibilities of technology. Bringing ideas to life by developing smart devices and the software ecosystems that allow them to thrive is what we're good at.

  • Hardware
  • Connectivity
  • Software

We approach innovation differently: we experiment, tinker and make ideas come to life from the earliest moment possible. We believe in making ideas tangible and interactive. Therefore, we select the best components and technologies on the market to help our customers with an end-to-end solution. This makes us your perfect integration partner for all Internet of Things challenges.

What we do

IN 2020, 50 BILLION DEVICES WILL BE CONNECTED. SENSORS ARE GETTING SMALLER, MORE POWERFUL AND CHEAPER. EVERYTHING WILL BECOME CONNECTED OVER TIME: THE INTERNET OF EVERYTHING

What we do

Together with our customers, we explore the opportunities of connecting their business to digital services. We target 3 types of connectivity; devices and machines, environments, and people. At this stage, we give an answer to the following questions:

  • What's the value of a connected solution in your business?
  • What's the earning model?
  • Can we define new business models?
Discovery

The next step is to convert an idea into a system model. We break down the concept into major system blocks designing the functions and effort to implement. We select the hardware, select the best suited connectivity solution (this could be LoRa, Sigfox, GSM, WiFi, ...) and decide which software components are required. While designing, we keep a few things in mind:

  • Design for scalability
  • Security and privacy first approach!
  • Flexible hardware ecosystem
Design

By using innovative, flexible technology stacks and prototyping facilities, we can build proof of concept demo's. Those demo's have several purposes:

  • Deliver business value as quick as possible
  • Validate technological decisions
  • Iterate: build, validate, improve
Prototype

Based on our proven architecture using on the best components of the market, we support the deployment of your connected solution into a production environment. We also have great partnerships with engineering agencies to translate our prototyping hardware into production-ready solutions.

  • Production-ready hardware, even in small volumes
  • We deliver the required web/mobile applications for your solution
  • Premium support, so you will be treated as we would like to be treated ourself

Projects

Followr, a low-power "Things Locator"

Followr is a small and smart GPS tracking solution to help you locate just about anything. Followr determines its location accurately with GPS technology and broadcasts your data using SIGFOX or LoRaWAN network connectivity, which is a very battery-friendly communication solution.

  • Hardware: GPS, Glonass, Temp & Motion
  • Connectivity: SIGFOX or LoRaWAN
  • Software: AngularJS, MongoDB, REST API

On-the-go for health professionals

On-the-go is a platform for health professionals where we use innovations like wearables and mobile health apps. We help them to get insights into the behavior and habits of a client. Based on that information, clients get a more personalised and efficient follow-up.

  • Hardware: Wearable technology
  • Connectivity: BLE, Wifi, ..
  • Software: AngularJS, Azure messaging

Indoor tracking solution

We developed a solution to be used for real-time indoor asset tracking. This allows us to generate a heatmap of asset locations, which is interesting for e.g. shop owners, warehouse supervisors, ..

  • Hardware: Raspberry Pi, Intel Edison
  • Connectivity: Wifi, Beacon, UWB
  • Software: NodeJS, Azure Eventhubs

what people say

I experience Aptus as a dynamic & passionate IoT Team. They fully grasp the extend to the IoT world and quickly understand how to combine business needs into concepts of IOT. On top of that they are able to transform these concepts into a working solution.
Bottom Line: they help us to bring the value out of Internet of Things.
