Ayla’s Agile Mobile Application Platform (AMAP) jump-starts the development of iOS and Android apps for controlling IoT devices of any kind. Built upon Ayla’s mobile software libraries, AMAP enables manufacturers, and their application development partners, to quickly and easily provide their end users with a mobile app that is optimized for controlling their particular device(s) within a connected IoT environment.
Designed for IoT solutions using the Ayla Cloud, AMAP provides a rather substantial piece of the coding and development work required of any high-performing, reliable, and secure IoT mobile app by abstracting the complexity of primary features that consumers expect when controlling a connected device — sign-in, user registration, device setup and control, password recovery, WiFi and Zigbee setup, schedule creation and management, setup for Apple HomeKit (iOS), and support for push notification and timer setup.
By providing a framework on top of the application program interfaces (APIs) and the mobile libraries that allow IoT devices to connect to the Ayla Cloud, manufacturers need only specify the “last mile” of functionality required to personalize and differentiate their products—adding their company brand and color scheme.
AMAP’s pre-built code reduces time to market and overall complexity, saving 100’s of thousands of dollars in development costs. By providing pre-made, pre-tested software that supports the primary features consumers expect from any high-performing IoT mobile app, AMAP reduces the time, cost, and risk associated with building IoT mobile apps while allowing manufacturers to focus on where it matters, their differentiation.
Manufacturers can license the AMAP software for an up-front license fee plus an annual maintenance fee, which varies depending on the complexity of the product and of the vertical-specific workflows. The manufacturers can then contract with an Ayla-certified mobile application development partner, or use in-house or other developers of their choosing, to finalize and brand the mobile app, as well as to add new features and functionality over time.
Leverage in-house developers or contract with an Ayla-certified mobile application development partner who is ready to assist you in your application development and support of AMAP. Ayla’s Agile Mobile Application Platform leverages industry standard software development environments in iOS and Android, giving you complete control of your development process.
AMAP provides pre-made, pre-tested software that manufacturers can leverage to build great-connected mobile applications. AMAP is developed and supported by Ayla and will be continually tested against the latest releases of iOS and Android to ensure out-of-the-box features such as LAN Connect™ and support for a secure login and user registration with the Ayla Cloud work every time. Ayla will continue to develop and roll out new features and functionality into AMAP to increase the end user’s experience and allow manufacturers to focus on building additional value into their apps.
Ayla Networks is the number one platform for leading manufacturers, accelerating the development, support, and ongoing enhancements of connected products for the Internet of Things. Ayla’s end-to-end software runs across devices, the cloud, and applications to provide secure connectivity, data analytics, and feature-rich user experiences for our customers as well as the end consumer.

Although Ayla’s Agile Mobile Application Platform is customizable, AMAP does offer a number of pre-built navigation styles and interfaces that manufacturers can choose from when developing their mobile applications. These designs, coupled with AMAP’s support for common workflows, allow manufacturers to quickly develop a great mobile app for their connected products.
The Internet of Things promises to deliver on the vision of giving the average consumer the ability to control all of the devices around them, but no one wants 50 different apps to control 50 different things. By supporting the popular communication protocols such as WiFi, Zigbee, and Zwave, AMAP can be used to create great mobile applications that can control devices using nearly any communication protocol, all from a single app.
AMAP was designed to support any type of connected device, abstracting the complexity of primary features that consumers expect when controlling a connected device and offering them out-of-the-box – sign in, user registration, device setup and control, password recovery, Wi-Fi and Zigbee setup, schedule creation and management, setup for Apple HomeKit, and support for push notification and timer setup.
As an end-to-end IoT platform, Ayla’s goal is to provide the infrastructure needed for manufacturers to build great-connected products, leaving the spotlight to our customers. AMAP encompasses this belief and has been developed to allow manufacturers to personalize their app, extending their brand right to the palms of their customers’ hands.
AMAP supports leading mobile beacon technologies including Apple® iBeacon™, Eddystone™ and other Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE) location and proximity detection solutions. This support allows for a direct communication between mobile apps using AMAP technology and beacon-equipped connected products, even within a cross-manufacturer environment, and is available immediately to new and existing AMAP customers to integrate into their mobile applications.
AMAP’s support of the Apple Watch enables end users to use mobile apps running on an Apple Watch to control their connected products. Mobile apps are the most high-profile aspect of connected products, and we want to let manufacturers begin their development with most of the work already done.
