So what is the Krika One?

The One is a “all in one” PC + Krika solution embedded in a powerful Intel nuc platform. Krika One allows professionals to work remotely on the local network exactly as if they were onsite.

The Krika One offers a remote access (via TeamViewer) to a robust Windows server environment ready to host all professional software suite like AMX, Crestron, RTI, C4, Sonos, Lutron…

The Krika One offers a much more robust solution compared to a Krika mini and a regular PC,  thanks to Virtualization of the Window session. Snapshots are regularly backup in the One itself and allows the Windows session to be always remotely recoverable.

- Krika One comes with 5 supervision tokens, unlimited email notification and 100 SMS notifications
- (Additional tokens and SMS can be purchased in the online store)
- USB ports will be soon used to connect a 3G/4G, Zigbee, Z-Wave or Wi-Fi dongle.
- HDMI port is only used to debug if needed
- TeamViewer is installed by default with a free license but you can install and use any other solution you feel comfortable with.
- The Krika One is equipped with a Intel i3 processor, 8Gb of Ram and 250Gb of SSD Storage

How exactly does Krika work?

Every Krika has to be connected permanently in the end-user’s local network to execute the local routine scheduled every 5 minutes. Krika can determine the exact model names, status, firmware, serial number or settings of your Krikakompliant connected devices.

Krika implements various protocols for detection such as TCP, HTTP, UPNP (powered by Plugis), SNMP, etc…

Krika mini and Krika One execute the local routine and send a report to Krika cloud-based servers in order to execute the server routine. The server routine processes and analyzes the reports. It is instantly operated by Krika cloud-based servers which will generate a dashboard the installer can consult on Krika’s website from any web browser without having to log onto the customer’s local network

The dashboard contains a detailed list of all devices connected to the local network. List is refreshed about every 5 minutes. The installer will define the email and/or sms alerts required for most important devices. When a report sent by Krika contains some information requiring to trigger an alert, the hosted services reading and processing the report will send an email and/or an sms to the persons mentioned in the dashboard.

With an in-house server installation these operations are processed locally. With a Krika One solution the installer can eventually access the device but cannot access the main part of Krika

Wanna know more?

Krika handles connected devices using their MAC address, even if the IP changes.

Krika mini and Krika One has no embedded intelligence and neither contains nor stores any information.

Krika mini or Krika One handles only the LAN addressed by the DHCP. A multi-LAN/multi-VLAN configuration requires multiple Krika units. The local-only server (LOS) can handle multiple LANs/VLANs itself.

Krika communicate with cloud-based servers through the Port 80. The installation of a Krika mini or Krika One does not require to open specific ports on the router/modem. Krika does not use NTP for clock synchro, avoiding security flaws and network configuration issues on port 123. Updates of Krika mini or Krika One are operated automatically with no intervention required from the installer.

Krika keeps traces of virtually unlimited devices found on the local network, and shows up to 254 devices online.

Krika can warn you on possible ISP or power failures.

What Krika does not

Krika is a management tool for devices that are connected to a local network.

Krika can not perform a statistical analysis, and can not supervise the actual network.

Krika can neither detect bandwidth nor bad wiring problems between two local devices.

Krika can highlight connection or instability problems but can not resolve them by itself.

Krika does not replace a network engineer and is supposed to be connected to a qualified/certified operational network.
