The purpose of thesis is to present the development of a web service which eliminates the problems when using the mFi products of the company Ubiquiti Networks, inc. The problems are mainly the limited functionality offered by the software bundled with these devices. The webservice uses the communication protocol SOAP. Additionally and we encountered a relatively unknown database management system named MongoDB.
Ubiquiti mFi is a family of gadgets to monitor events in buildings. The protocol SOAP is a protocol for indipendent communication between applications. The MongoDB database belongs to the family of NoSQL databases. MongoVUE offers a graphical user interface to manage the MongoDB database.
The main functionality of our solution is unlimited access to the data from the mFi devices over the internet from remote locations. The web service is written in the C# programming language. Finally, we have tested our solution with two client applications.
