IoT solutions provider myDevices has launched Cayenne, a tool for developers which is claimed to be the first drag and drop IoT project builder.
The platform enables the connection of devices, visualisation of data, application of complicated rules and interaction with their connected customers. The launch of Cayenne makes available the versatile device and connectivity agnostic platform, rolled out in October 2015, to the developer and maker community.
The Cayenne solution comes with automatic device and sensor discovery that allows it to be functional in seven minutes; drag-and-drop widgets that allow the developer to 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 lights, motors, valves and actuators turn on and turn off.
Cayenne can be utilised for cost-effective prototyping, improving business prophecies, and streaming workflow. In the home, Cayenne facilitates fluid control in home automation, security, sensors and lighting, among other things. However, Cayenne is best for simple IoT projects while reducing the burden in terms of time and expense for more complex IoT projects. myDevices is offering Cayenne as a free online service and a mobile app. The solution allows developers to formulate projects in a matter of hours as opposed to months.
