The Bleskomat Platform makes it easy to setup and operate your Bleskomat hardware devices.
Automatic Hardware Configuration
The browser-based hardware configuration tool is available from within your Platform account and it will help you to:
- Update the firmware on your device to the latest version
- Customize configuration options
- Prepare the device to work with your Platform account
The hardware configuration process takes less than a minute to complete and doesn’t require any scripting or command-line magic!
A more advanced version of the hardware configuration tool is available which allows you to monitor the serial communication in real-time, view logs, run serial commands, and modify all possible configurations of the device. For most users, we recommend the simpler version of the tool.
The Platform is strictly non-custodial and does not have custody over any user funds. While setting up your account, you will choose from and configure one of several supported Lightning Network (LN) service providers or node software (see below for full list).
The Platform facilitates payments on behalf of your hardware devices by seamlessly handling requests from the mobile wallet app of your customers. Depending upon the device type (ATM or POS), the Platform will: send the customer’s Lightning invoice to your LN service provider or node which will then pay it; or request a new invoice from your LN service provider or node, then send that invoice to be paid by your customer.
