How ZConnect helps you

Remote Diagnosis & Predictive Maintenance

ZConnect allows remote monitoring and easy diagnosis of faults on remote systems, getting data from any sensors which may be on the product.

ZConnect is also able to alert users when devices do not appear to be operating normally in order to allow proactive servicing.


Compliance and Audit Trail

Connected products open up new possibilities for collecting and storing data about the operation of equipment and movement of goods.

Create maps, graphs and reports of everything from panic button activations to application of weed killer!


Open source, easy choice

ZConnect has been released as an open source project, meaning you can be safe in the knowledge that you’re organisation will never be dependent on a third party vendor for licencing of your connected product platform.

ZConnect has considered security from the ground up and role-based permissions come as standard. Create groups and organisations to only give access to the data which is required for a particular party.



Zoetrope consults on and creates connected products for our customers - helping right from high level concept planning and business cases, designing and implementing the ZConnect system, understanding product lifecycles and helping you setup manufacturing processes for smart products.
