Control your IoT Device remotely with SMS commands

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:

Changes to our IoT Developer Kit Offer

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.

Your regional mobile coverage questions answered

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
