Multiple Technology and One Cloud Platform
For the Internet of Things, or any control system, the dashboard or IoT dashboard is the key interface component that organizes and presents digital information from our physical world into a simply understood display on a computer or mobile device. With the help of IoT Dashboards, users and operators can monitor and control specific assets and processes, and depending on safety requirements, access and control an environment from anywhere in the world.
Attributes and Advantages of IoT Dashboards
Monitor and control physical assets
The IoT can be simply understood as the digitalization of our physical world; while many common data sources are purely digital, the Internet of Things utilizes input/output devices and sensors from our physical world to display insights from an environment or its systems. IoT dashboards populated with graphs, charts, control switches, maps, tables, and countless other widgets are the digital tools we use to visualize and display data coming from the physical world to our computers.
Used by businesses and individuals
While the use of dashboard to view company stats is not new for businesses, making the data readily available to employees, management, and customers at the same time is. Businesses are now adopting the IoT to incorporate cloud data-analytics to improve operating efficiency and worker safety, then relay this data to customers or vendors for increased product transparency. Similarly, individuals are adopting the IoT to improve the efficiency of one’s own mind and body thanks to fitness trackers and home alarm systems. In both scenarios, end-users have access to specific IoT dashboards as interface that presents data relating to the status of a system or events (door open, smoke detected, 4 miles traversed); all the while not requiring programming skills to operate either system.
Cloud-based and global
The Internet of Things (IoT) adoption is picking up, thanks to the expansion of cloud computing and its proficient data collection, processing, and analysis capabilities. With the global accessibility of cloud data-storage platforms like AWS and Google Cloud no longer do businesses or private users need servers rooms to store data nor the on-hand IT engineer to run it. With the global architecture of most cloud or IoT service providers, IoT dashboards can be accessed simply with a URL on any standard browser or mobile application – anywhere in the world.
AADONA Z-Cloud dashboard
Z-cloud is a ubiquitous, all-in-one, customizable IoT platform which provides end to end support including device provisioning, device integration, data collection, application creator for your customized needs using device data, third party integration, comprehensive data analysis and real-time alerts creator. Currently, our platform supports communication technologies like WiFi, LoRaWAN, NBIoT, 4G, 3G, 2G, BLE, UWB and applications like GPS tracking, Sensor data, Indoor navigation, Smart Waste Management etc. Support for more technologies and applications is being updated regularly.
Z-Cloud dashboard tools
Device friendly API and SDKs
Connect hardware to Z-Cloud easily with more than 200 user-proven libraries, SDKs, and tutorials to guide your integration over HTTP, MQTT, TCP, UDP, or by Parsing custom / industrial protocols. Whether onboarding 1 or 1,000 devices, it takes the same amount of effort. Replicate creating the new device automatically configuring variables, device properties, and appearance each time a new piece of hardware is detected.
Data plugins 3rd party data input / output
Create your own API and parse data into a Node.js cloud GET or POST HTTP function extending your connect solution beyond the boundaries of AADONA IoT architecture and capabilities. Parse data and ingest any 3rd party protocols or device clouds like Sigfox, Particle Cloud, mcCloud, NB-IoT, TTN, LoRaWan networks, and more. Extend the monitoring and data analytics of your applications with API integrations like Weather Underground, IBM’s Watson, Google Locations, Zapier, and more.
Transform raw data into insights with Synthetic Variables that compute complex math formulas and statistical expressions.
Code custom cloud functions that analyze existing data using Parsers. Run data filtering, data cleansing, data aggregation, and data optimization cloud functions to extract insights from below the service.
Two year back end and storage
Whether your data is needed every day or every second, Z-Cloud infrastructure is optimized to receive, compute, and return millions of data points each second across the globe. And, with 2 years rolling data retention standard, it gives integrators and innovators a place to store and mine data for added insights and analytic overlays like anomaly detection or predictive maintenance.
Using Z-Cloud point-and-click application development tools, create real-time dashboards to analyze data and control devices. Visualize data with Z-Cloud stock graphs, charts, tables, indicators, maps, metrics, and control widgets. Share your data through public links, or by embedding dashboards or widgets into private web and mobile applications.
Deliver data clearly, concisely, and regularly with Z-Cloud Scheduled Reports. Send PDF or Excel reports and exports to those who need to know or schedule the report for delivery when the data sets are needed.
Add conditional and complex business logic to your hardware with triggered webhooks for M2M communication, and SMS, Email, Telegram, and Slack alerts to keep operators on-the-ball and informed.
Assign permissions and restrictions to any end-user or operator who interacts with dashboards, devices, and/or events.
