smart. simple. secure.


what we do

Coris’ patented technology represents an early, real-world implementation of the Internet of Things.  Wireless sensors and controls automatically establish local mesh networks to simplify installation, and automatically start “talking” to Coris servers in the cloud.  All sensor readings and control information is stored in the cloud and is available via web browser anywhere in the world. Operational control decisions are made on “big iron” servers and are based on multiple inputs and conditions for more intelligent operations.  Network security for widely deployed sensors and controls is fundamental to our IoT architecture, and is covered by two patents. Centralized analytics and alerting functions based on our Big Data approach are designed to protect the heart of your business or research.


The company was founded in 2006 to broadly use the Internet as the primary network for smart sensors and controls, based on lessons learned implementing secure networks for Federal agencies. Product development continues to be directed by customer needs, with custom development available for large opportunities.


All Coris products are designed and manufactured in the USA.
