Semtech announced a technology partnership with myDevices to build an interactive IoT demonstration platform using advanced visualization tools. The interactive platform will allow LoRa hardware manufacturers to showcase their modules and sensors remotely and in real time.
Open to all hardware manufacturers with LoRa-enabled devices, the platform allows anyone in the world to not only view an online catalog of connected devices, but also control these objects to obtain real-time data feedback using a handheld mobile device such as a cell phone or tablet. For example, in a smart building demo, users can set triggers to control the lights, schedule the temperature settings of the thermostat, and set alerts when a door is left open.
The interactive IoT platform is said to equip a library of connected components and observable live data via widgets in an enhanced dashboard. The demo platform will eventually be displayed at Semtech headquarters in Camarillo, Calif. and on Semtech’s website.
“Semtech and myDevices share a similar goal in accelerating time-to-market for developers who invest time, energy, and creativity making IoT projects. Our joint-collaboration provides an innovative solution for LoRa device manufactures to showcase their devices and present real use-cases across a variety of IoT applications in healthcare, connected home, smart buildings, water monitoring, etc.”, said Kevin Bromber, CEO of myDevices.
“Our LoRa wireless RF technology is being implemented in a wide range of unique IoT solutions, and a concise, interactive platform to demonstrate its capability is exactly what we needed. myDevices’ demonstration technology is an outstanding opportunity for us to showcase all of our LoRa Alliance partners’ solutions and give interested parties a simplified look at the vast array of IoT solutions LoRa is enabling”, said Alberto Guerra, Chief Marketing Officer of Semtech.
Semtech and myDevices will be providing a sneak peek of the live IoT platform at CES 2016.
