Analyze IoT events with Keen.io

Leveraging IoT Data IoT applications generate loads of data stemming from the devices and the services they involve. Because data is issued in (near) real-time from a wide range of sources (e.g. wearable devices, home, vehicles, urban equipment, services, etc.), it holds the promise of unlocking tremendous opportunities, such as improvements of products and services quality or the creation of new business models, thanks to an increased knowledge of the applications’ environment. However, without the ability to turn it into actionnable information, this huge amount of data is just “noise”. Therefore, IoT applications should first be able to process...

August 2016 Updates

For this month release, we tackled security & resource access management which are a major concern for IoT applications that is often overlooked. We also added support for powerful native NoSQL persistence that works right out of the box! Device Directory and Access Control List We added higher granularity to our Access Control List (ACL) model to offer full control over who/what can access scriptr.io resources. You start by creating a device from the Device Directory by entering a name and a description, which will generate an associated access token. You have to send the access token with each request to identify...

Having problems monitoring your water consumption?

As part of my training program at scriptr.io, I had the pleasure of working on a fun DIY project that the team had assigned to me. They provided me with a general problem that any household might face, which was monitoring their water consumption, and asked me to use scriptr.io to create a solution for it, which brought me to the Water Level Calculator. The idea of the Water Level Calculator was created to monitor the water consumption and to make sure not to run out of water (in some countries where water is not always provided) . This device checks the...
