groov is Opto 22’s simple way to build and view a mobile operator interface to monitor and control devices, systems, and equipment from your smartphone or tablet.

You build your mobile interface—your own mobile app—using any computer with a modern web browser (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, IE10). No programming or coding is required. You can mix devices and equipment from different manufacturers in the same interface if you wish.

The interface you build can be used on an Apple or Android mobile device with the free groov View app. Or you can view the same interface on any brand computer or device with a modern web browser—even a web-enabled HDTV.

GROOV-AR1-BASE is the plug-and-play groov Box appliance that includes all groov software. Plug it into your computer network and begin building your mobile operator interface right away. A self-contained, industrially hardened appliance, the groov Box includes two independent 1-GB Ethernet interfaces and USB expansion for wireless LAN interfaces. The Box has a solid-state fanless design with no moving parts, a wide 0-70 °C (32-158 °F) operating temperature range, and a compact footprint.
