The EdgeBox is an outdated term used to describe the Zatar Gateway, which is an enterprise-class micro-computer that helps your devices communicate directly with Zatar. For all devices that are not capable of connecting to the cloud directly, or are installed behind firewalls, the Zatar Gateway provides a robust, secure, controllable means to connect devices to the cloud with a reliable, secure, optimized link. The Zatar Gateway runs a Zatar software stack developed by Zebra that decodes device data and translates it into a language Zatar can understand. For more information visit our Developer Zone or contact email@example.com for additional information.
A private world is your personal world in Zatar, which is automatically created for you upon signup. You control access to your private world. A public world is a world that is made accessible by all members of Zatar. A public world contains device avatars that can be viewed by anyone using Zatar. Log in to view your worlds now.
Inviting members gives you control over collaborators and with whom you share your avatars. You can invite members to join your world, giving them access to interact with your avatars.
The application is called ZatarRDM for iPhone, and you can download it from the Apple AppStore. The app was written using the Zatar API and showcases how you can write an app using Zatar. It displays the status of the main sensors on your iPhone and enables you to post the latest sensor data to your Zatar account. You can keep your iPhone data Private to you or make it Public for the whole Zatar community to see. The app allows you to browse the Zatar Public World of devices and view data others have chosen to make public. You can also connect the Texas Instuments SensorTag and publish the SensorTag's sensor data in Zatar. Click the icon below to go to the store to see more info on the Zatar RDM for iPhone app.

Zatar is designed to be simple enough for anyone to use and robust enough to scale to even the most demanding industrial applications.
