Senet’s open, standards-based network will be combined with myDevices connected device solution
myDevices and Senet have announced an Internet of Things (IoT) technology partnership to encourage innovation and enable rapid deployment of LoRa IoT applications.
myDevices is the creator of Cayenne, the world’s first drag-and-drop IoT project builder, and Senet, is a US provider of public, low-power, wide-area networks (LPWANs).
The collaboration between the companies will provide an integration of Senet’s open, standards-based network with myDevices’ connected device solution to simplify the creation and deployment of IoT projects utilising the LoRa ecosystem.
“This partnership will facilitate our mission of enabling seamless deployment of IoT business applications using LoRa LPWAN technology,” said Will Yapp, vice president of business development at Senet. “myDevices’ Cayenne software provides our mutual enterprise customers with the necessary tools to create and rapidly prototype LoRa IoT solutions.”
myDevices won the Best IoT Edge Gateway Solution at the IoT Evolution Expo when Cayenne was introduced in January 2016. Since then more than 30,000 developers and engineers have downloaded the easy IoT project builder, the company claims.
Among the key features of Cayenne, which helps customers to bring IoT projects from prototype to mass production, are: automatic device and sensor discovery; drag-and-drop widgets that let developers easily visualise real-time and historical data online or from a mobile app; triggers that allow one sensor, motor or actuator to invoke an action on another device; threshold alerts that send emails or SMS messages based on customisable criteria; and the ability to schedule specific days and times when motors, valves and actuators turn on and turn off.
Senet said it has achieved a significant milestone with deployment of its network in 100 US cities and plans to double that figure in the next year. According to Senet it already has the largest deployment of LoRaWAN in the US. It was recently selected by Gartner in its Cool Vendor in the Internet of Things 2016 list.
myDevices is headquartered in Los Angeles, California, and is a division of Avanquest.
