With all the talk about the IoT, you may find yourself wondering what this term actually means. IoT is shorthand for Internet of Things, which refers to the collection of devices connected to the internet which allows them to send and receive data. It’s become so prevalent that you maybe utilizing IoT devices without even realizing it. Do you have a home alarm system that you can check from your phone? How about a car that you can start up with a button from your front door? Or do you have a printer that connects wirelessly to your laptop? If you do, then congratulations, you’ve already had your first exposure to the world of IoT.
After understanding what IoT means, you can start to see what RoboMQ and IoT can do for you.
Any businesses operating out of brick and mortar locations will need sensors monitoring alarms and cameras, and many have specialized sensors for temperature, humidity, power usage, and any other quantifiable variables that needs monitoring. The more complex the business, the more IoT devices needed to keep things running, and thus the more complex the issue of managing data from IoT devices becomes. You could hire more workers to help sort through the ever-growing mound of data, or you could let RoboMQ handle the heavy-lifting for you by integrating your data into one easy to follow activity feed.
RoboMQ IoT Analytics will help you efficiently monitor your data while providing crucial information in a simple and manageable manner.
Let’s look at an example. Jack runs a business providing storage and warehouses for commodity retailers. Initially he was fine with physically monitoring the warehouses. But as the business grew, so did the complexity of managing it and the sheer scope of parameters and locations to monitor.
Jack then set up several sensors in his warehouses collecting a plethora of data he would in the past monitor manually with hand-held devices. These new sensors constantly collect data and sends it as messages to the Integration Platform. Now all of his information gets collected by the applications connected to the device for him to check. Instead of an hour, it now takes him just a few minutes to check his different device’s data.
With RoboMQ IoT Analytics Jack can cut this down even further, from a few minutes to a few seconds. Instead of monitoring the output of a dozen different devices, Jack can use our platform to view all of his data in one easy to understand feed. More than that, Jack can now easily identify trends between different data and find new ways to improve his company.
With IoT Analytics, monitoring data is as easy as it gets. Now Jack can act on the slightest irregularity in the data, delegate his employees to the right place at the right time all while relaxing in his office, saving time and money. He can also add other users to the application while limiting their permissions so they can view and act on data without leaving holes in security.
Simple yet powerful, RoboMQ IoT Analytics allows Jack to get total automated control with no programming needed. A simple producer code is all that is needed to send the data from sensors to the RoboMQ and IoT Analytics takes care of the rest. Jack simply drags and drops the widgets that he wants to see, and he’s all set to go. To learn how to set up a producer through RoboMQ IoT Analytics go to our documentation page.
