Welcome to the Starter Guide. This guide aims to provide you with all the basic knowledge to start creating your own applications using Vitro Crystal, Vitro Shard, Vitro Shard Edge, and the Vitro API.

Our APIs and hardware are designed having in mind security for your entire IoT solution.
You will be able to read every sort of sensor, create a message to the Vitro Cloud Infrastructure, encrypt, send, and decrypt it without any deep knowledge of cryptography. All your data is protected by encryption and from malicious attacks.

The API brings the ability to update the firmware remotely (OTA update), protect the system against unauthorized access or malicious code, and more.

Whatever you need to know about Vitro will be available in this guide.
For more details about our secure hardware, check our Hardware Guide section, while refer to the Developer Guide section to acquire all the necessary knowledge to create an application from scratch.

It is highly recommended that you read this whole guide. These are steps we suggest to follow to build your first application smoothly as soon as possible:

  1. Installation Guide.
  2. Our Hardware.
  3. Operating System.
  4. Vitro Shard Programming.
  5. Verifying Signed Binary.
