If you have an environmental sensor set up in your home, office, farm etc and want to check the temperature, you don’t want to have to physically go out and do a sensor reading every time.
Developing with the Internet of Things is fun. It’s challenging. It’s frustrating at times.
But it’s also an opportunity to change the world with code! And you don’t need 5 years R&D or an engineering degree to do it. In this blog I’ll go through some quick weekend hackathon projects you can put together to bring your IoT idea to life.
Consider that the Internet of Things is made up of 3 key elements:
As developers ourselves, we understand that focus is a key to success. We’ve spoken to IoT developers who have told us that the biggest value Telstra provides is the coverage and depth of the network, so we're focusing on that.
That’s why from 15th July 2021 we’ll be retiring the IoT Marketplace on TelstraDev and ending the Developer Kit trial.
Where we've come from...
When TelstraDev launched the IoT Marketplace in 2019, we wanted to make it as easy as possible to get up and running with Telstra’s IoT network.
I woke up one morning in January 2020 and discovered that the air quality in Melbourne had dropped to hazardous levels from bushfire smoke. This hazardous air quality was extremely concerning to my wife and I with our newborn.
When developing an IoT solution for your business, coverage and access to a reliable network is critical! If you're using Telstra's mobile network to connect your IoT devices in a regional area, these tips from our Commercial Engineering Executive might help optimise your access to Australia's largest IoT network. With mobile phones, you can simply move them to another location to improve signal, but for static IoT devices you need to get that coverage sweet spot from the get go! - Michelle Howie, Developer Advocate
I want to showcase a project I have been working on to reflect the interesting things you can do with Internet of Things (IoT) and Azure services at home that could be commercialised into an industrialised environment.
In this blog series, I’m going to write about how Internet of Things (IoT) enabled my gate, garage door and garden irrigation system using Azure IoT Hub, ESP32, IFTTT, .Net Core and much more.
