One of the advantages of Internet of Things is that you have more information. How you use it in your benefit can make a big difference. Re-organize all the information you have and make a clear vision of all of it, helps you to make better decisions. Today, we offer you atutorialabout how to build a dashboard with Geckoboard.Geckoboard is an online software to create public dashboards with your metrics. To have a dashboard can help you to see the information.
The tutorial has 6 simple steps to build a nice visual dashboard which collects data from Carriots platform. We have used our meteo station to feed the example. The tutorial ends talking about some advises about Geckoboard and some ideas to enhance your project like improving widgets functionalities adding filters for comparison of metrics for example. The tutorial explains this step too. We hope you enjoy it!
Of course, one of the most demanded questions made by makers is how to connect Apple devices to Carriots. The Big Apple company has1 billion active devices in the world and we are sure that you are thinking that your project must be compatible with iOS. In this Tutorialwe show you how easy is to create a Proof of Concept (POC) prototype using an IPhone app, an Apple Watch (using WatchOS), a Raspberry and our IoT Platform Carriots.
In the example, iOS and watchOS are programmed using Swift to send a data stream to Carriots that closes or open a light circuit. All the data streams sent by the iPhone or the Apple WATCH are collected and stored in Carriots. In this tutorial you will also learn how to build a very simple Alert App that sends an email to you in case the Raspberry Pi closes the light circuit thanks to the streams sent by Apple devices.
We hope you can make marvelous POC´s with this feature and tutorial . And if you have any doubts you can use our forum to contact our team or drop us an email to support ( firstname.lastname@example.org )
In Carriots we have an easy platform to use and practice your IoT projects. Most of users start by creating Proof of Concept (POC) prototypes with simple computing boards. Therefore we publish simple Tutorial with most demanded features for POCs. We have just published a new tutorial to connect a Raspberry to our Platform to monitor and control a Relay. In this example you create an alarm app warning us if a light is on by monitoring the state of a Relay.
This is an easy and fast example about how a Raspbery Pi can be programmed to send a data stream to Carriots and build apps very quickly with a few lines of code. In this scenario we are going to build a very simple Alert App that sends a SMS to you in case that Raspberry Pi detects a change in the Relay.
This is a very simple example, but our platform permits more complex integrations and uses. You have more tutorials on our Developers Space and also documentation .And if you have any doubts you can use our forum to contact our team or drop us an email to support ( email@example.com )
This is a new service available for Carriots corporate accounts (subscription charges apply). You can now create very visual dashboards to have a better “picture” of your data. With all sort of widgets you can better decisions in seconds. We have created a new section, on your Carriots control panel, called Dashboard, that looks like this:
Here you will find information about this new service and its monthly cost. Once you subscribe to it you will be able to create dashboards and configure them with data. To show show how it looks like, we have created a tutorial with the example of our weather station ( and old Carriots project you can read about that here). After a few hour collecting data the visual is clear:
These Dashboards are easy to create and you do not need to write any line of code. Plus you can also share your information with a simple URL and make it public if you want! We hope you find this new feature of Carriots IoT Platform useful. And if you have any doubts you can use our forum to contact our team or drop us an email to support (firstname.lastname@example.org )
Do you want to send Push notifications to Android devices using Google Cloud Messaging and Carriots? Learn how with this easy project: how to receive notifications when the light is turned ON or OFF making a listener who send data to Carriots
The tutorial is GREAT and very easy to follow, so you can get the same results as Zambiot. Perhaps the only thing we miss in the tutorial is a little music suggestion like we do in our tutorials . So at Carriots we think you could listen to DJ Shadow – Organ Donor while you complete this DIY Status Board.
