An IoT platform is essentially the heart of your entire IoT solution. Building a scalable and reliable IoT platform is hard, that’s why today the market is flooded with hundreds of IoT PaaS (Platform as a Service) vendors. Choosing the best IoT platform for operating your STREGA devices is much complex today than it has been ever before. Some solution are generic and can match any verticals, some others are dedicated and specific to smart-metering, farming, irrigation, leakage detection, industry, etc.
The STREGA Smart-Valves and Time-Controlled Emitter for irrigation valves are following native LoRaWAN 1.02 standards. Many SCADA and Cloud platforms are compliant with our devices. Not all support the schedulers and other enhanced features we offer but basic Open/Close operations are supported by all.
The non exhaustive list below provides an overview of the different proven solutions, compliant with the STREGA devices.
STREGA Mobile App
More a utility than a platform, this Android or IOS mobile application provides a seamless integration of all facets of the STREGA devices: open/close, change of UL frequency, time synchronization, geolocation, schedulers support and many more.
But its goal is not to replace an full-fledge platform: it runs on smartphone (or tablet) only and its use maybe sufficient for a small to medium number of devices (few dozens). It runs today on several Network Servers like TTN, Orange Live Objects, Kerlink Wanesy, MESHED, The Things Industries, etc.
