We provide IoT Development Kits for professional automation solutions.
Kiwi Warmer Rowi is a professional IoT Automation Kit - a developer edition of the Kiwi Warmer Smart Plug, equipped with a powerful Espressif ESP32 MCU, an open REST API, Mobile SDK and integration with the ESPHome ecosystem. Rowi can be used for automation projects to control any electrical device connected to the mains voltage. In addition to the switching capabilities, Rowi also has an integrated temperature sensor SHTC3 that can be accessed through the API via HTTPS, MQTT or ESPHome.

Rowi Smart Plug is fully customisable in its functionality and user interface. Rowi can be operated as a standalone device or connected to a local WiFi network that does not require Internet/cloud connectivity, which maximises security, privacy, response time and service availability. The built-in temperature sensor enables one to monitor environmental conditions and react to them. Even though Rowi is built for professional and industrial purposes, it can also be used by hobbyists for Smart Home and Smart Gardening projects.
Use our Smart Plug API to easily create your own Smart Home, Smart Building and Smart Gardening solutions - for yourself or for your customers!
Integrate Rowi into the existing ecosystem to control a wide range of applications, for instance, lighting, audio, video, camera, cooling or heating.
Use our Mobile App SDK to create own Mobile Applications and distribute them under your own brand!
Switch on and off unused office equipment, cooling, heating and lighting using a scheduler, a central computer, mobile/tablet app or remote functionality to reduce carbon footprint and save energy.
Use Rowi to switch on and off digital kiosks and vending machines at appropriate times using integrated timers or sunset and sunrise settings to save energy.
Rowi can detect failures in the server rooms and react to them by resetting the router, switching on a backup router or turning on a backup air conditioning system.
Rowi can be used to automate the testing and validation processes at the test labs, for instance, EMC/Radio, Electrical Safety and Environmental testing labs.
Video cameras for surveillance and traffic control rely on stable internet connectivity. However, unfortunately, there are situations in which either the camera or the internet gateway “freezes” due to a software error or deadlock. The only remediation often is rebooting the camera and the internet gateway to restart the software and bring it back to its default operation state. Rowi can detect an internet failure and reset both the camera and the internet gateway.
It is a very valid use case for both industrial and residential use. Imagine you are on vacation out of town and want to access your camera to check if everything is ok with the house, but the internet router freezes again - Rowi can detect and fix this!
Depending on the use case and customisation level required for your project, we have four options: REST API, ESPHome integration, Mobile SDK, and White labelling.
Smart Plug with open API. Enables you to control one or multiple Rowi devices within a local WiFi network using an open REST API.
Smart Plug with open Mobile SDK. Develop your own mobile app using the Kiwi Warmer Mobile platform. Program with Angular and IONIC frameworks.
The ultimate development kit that enables you to develop and launch your own products based on the Kiwi Warmer firmware and mobile app platforms and using your own branding. Includes all features of the Firmware SDK and Mobile SDK packages.
