myDevices and Senet announce IoT tech partnership



myDevices, creators of Cayenne, the drag-and-drop IoT project builder, and Senet, a North American provider of public, low-power, wide-area networks (LPWANs) for long range-based (LoRa-based) Internet of Things (IoT) applications, announced their IoT technology partnership. The collaboration between the two 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 utilizing 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 a Senet. “myDevices’ Cayenne software provides our mutual enterprise customers with the necessary tools to create and rapidly prototype LoRa IoT solutions.”

myDevices was awarded the Best IoT Edge Gateway Solution at the IoT Evolution Expo when it was launched in January 2016. Since then more than 30,000 developers and engineers have downloaded the easy IoT project builder.

The Cayenne solution has capabilities including:

-Automatic device and sensor discovery
-Drag-and-drop widgets that let developers easily visualize 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 customizable criteria
-The ability to schedule specific days and times when motors, valves and actuators turn on and turn off

Senet recently achieved a significant milestone with deployment of their network in 100 U.S. cities and announced plans to double that figure in the next year. Their proven ability to launch and manage networks, while also deploying both Macrocell and Microcell technology at scale, provides support for a multitude of LPWAN use cases. The LoRa Alliance is a non-profit association of members dedicated to standardize LPWANs, and provide seamless interoperability between smart devices. Senet currently has the largest deployment of LoRaWAN in the United States.
