Structure offers a simple and powerful IoT cloud platform for developing the next generation of connected experiences. They offer device management with robust data visualization that reacts in real-time.
They have a nice drag & drop workflow interface that allows you to forward data coming in, combine data or just store it.
I will be testing a builder kit with the platform, that includes the Adafruit Feather Huzzah, which offers native Wifi connectivity. My Raspberry Pi’s will also find their way into the system. The platform allows to consume REST Apis as well, that will make it even more fun to build something unique.
If you are interested in IoT, you should really check it out. Its free 🙂
IoT is the current buzz word and I will be doing some more tinkering with current solutions this year. I have done projects with Arduino , Raspberry Pi and looking into relayr / Wunderbar right now.
relayr provides a tech stack with Wunderbar, that easily connects included sensors with the cloud. They provide a wide range of API endpoints to collect data and even integrate hardware solutions like Arduino orRaspberry Pi.
“The WunderBar is built for software developers. It is a powerful rapid prototyping and product development tool that enables developers to immediately start creating products and solutions that utilise the Internet of Things, without any prior hardware knowledge. No soldering or electronic engineering experience is needed. Just choose what sensors you need for your project and start coding.”
“The Pi-hole can block ads for all devices on your network. All you need is a Raspberry Pi connected to your router. It was inspired as a low-cost, open source alternative to the AdTrap. The Pi-hole works on the the B, B+ and Pi 2.”
Will be a nice reuse for one of my older Rasberry Pis …
