Thanks to Internet Technology . Internet has made this world somehow a better place . There are billions of people connected through internet . We can find all information about the things inside this vast computer web . Internet of things is basically connecting your electronics project with the internet and everything is automated without human resource . Let’s say using arduino or Raspberry Pi you want to record the data of wild animal (their numbers , colours , names etc ) and after a month of research you want to send that data to your friend with email or you may want to record the data to the server frequently .Even though you are trekking in iceland or are climbing Mount Everest you can do everything automatic with the help of internet of things . So internet of things is about connecting billions of computer with your device basically computer,sensors,etc etc .
There is a little bit of confusion inside it . People usually as me how to get inside internet of things ?Where to store my data and how ? Building a complete system for IoT solutions can be a challenging task even for the large companies . It requires a lot of skilled engineers ,scientists , time, and capital . And in the end, you will successfully develop a project but very low return compared to investment .So what’s the secret ? The secret is there are already established companies and there are already developed IOT platforms .You just have to enter these platform to learn internet of things and to make your IoT applications .
What is IoT Platform
To jump inside the IoT or to make your smart and connected solution you need to developed infrastructure so that you will able
- To monitor, manage, and control connected devices with your application
- To collect Remote data from connected devices
- To ensure Independent and secure connectivity between devices
- To manage your computer , sensors etc
- And To Integrate with 3rd party systems
Developing everything by yourself is not possible, not for 7.5 billions people around the world . So what you basically need is well established a company that can provide complete service for your IoT application .And one of the well established IoT platform is Cayenne .
How to Get Started Internet of Things with Cayenne ?
Getting started with Cayenne super easy you ever imagined .It is the world’s first drag and drop IoT project building platform . IoT developers can create and host their connected devices with cayenne . You do not need any special skill , everything is drag and drop in their web or android application . With the help of Cayenne IoT platform hardware can be controlled remotely, it can display and analyze sensor data, it can store data,and take necessary adjustment if necessary as shown in video below.
And basically you need Arduino or respberry pi to get started with Internet of things . Just connect your arduino with your computer and start learning .For your reference ,the link is provided above to connect your Arduino board or Raspberry Pi board . Everything is drag and drop and everything is free .
