Painless sensor-to-cloud with MQTT

You've probably encountered the pain of trying to set up something that you thought was going to be easy and only take a few minutes. It stated it was 'easy' to set up, and of course you're pretty bright so how hard could it really be? And then you open the box... You see more wires, parts, and pieces stuffed in there than SpaceX probably uses to build rockets.

Your heart sinks a bit, your blood pressure instantly rises and you can feel your eyes trying to make sense of the clutter and not knowing what to focus on. Your brain tells you to quickly close that box, and RUN screaming from the room!

Then again, you know you want the end result - it's why you bought it to begin with; but you're already annoyed with the experience and you're already dreading the mind-juggling, trial and error and even mental meltdowns this 'simple' set up is going to take to get to the end result.

Thankfully, you can get your remotely located asset data all set up and reporting trends, giving you alarms and delivering the data you need in just a few minutes without all the pain, tears and meltdowns - I promise!




Connecting devices to an IIoT platform should give you many things; it should be flexible to suit your needs as your organization grows, it should give you anywhere, anytime access to data to know what's going on in the field, it should offer free support and training of course to make sure you and your people know how to get the most from it.

It should have alarms that you can easily customize by either a group of users, or a single user. You'll want to be able to easily export your data, and always have the most up to date version without hiring anyone new or eating up your current people's time.

Oh, and here's the icing on the cake; it should offer constant, robust development to keep up with our crazy world these days and all this should be from a trustworthy and reputable company that you know will not just up and close there doors in the next year and leave you hanging without your historic data, or anyone to help you.

All that said, connecting to an IIoT platform should not give you migraines, or an anxiety attack.

We've made it fast and easy to get up and running - simple set up enables you with the fastest and easier way to gain data from your remotely located assets to promote return for your operations quickly. With MQTT functions it's a self-powered, C1D2 device with a built in cellular connection for light bandwidth for two-way data messaging communications.

The best part is that you can either easily set it up yourself (watch this video to see just how easy it is), or work with one of our trusted partners that can get it done quickly and correctly. Either way, you'll be up and running and gaining your valuable data in no time while enabling your people to focus on your core business.
