What does Dragstone stand for?
What are the recommended hardware specifications?
For a typical home automation scenario you will be fine with a device as small as a Windows stick. For large and complex industrial solutions you might need to step up to a server.
The plugins will make use of multi-threaded processor(s)/multi cores, so if you are using plugins that will do long running tasks or heavy calculations, your solution will run smoother on a computer with a newer/better processor.
Do I need to be online for the platform to work?
Take note that some plugins might require internet access in order to work properly. This information is available in the right column on the plugins page.
Is the platform secure?
Make sure you read the manual and properly understand all the hardware you are using in your IoT solution.
Why is Dragstone not a cloud platform?
Sometimes a company goes bankrupt. If that company is the cloud based IoT solution you invested time and money in, it is all gone! With a local solution like Dragstone, you would still own the platform and can continue to run it without worries.
Does it cost anything?
If you are running a business and want to install Dragstone there is affordable plans for you depenging on how many installations you need (installation refers to Core-installations. The number of Dash och PUI-users can be as many as you like).
