Cayenne Introduces iOS App for IoT LoRaWAN Solution Builders

By

Prototyping and deploying IoT edge solutions? There’s now an app for that, and it’s on the Apple App Store. 

Developers can now design with “drag and drop” provisioning of over 90 LoRa-ready sensors according to myDevices, the company behind Cayenne IoT solution builder application and now mobile platform, tapping into a vast library of devices from leading hardware manufacturers. In addition to offering the catalog of end-points, the new iOS mobile app is the first design tool that also includes native integration to nearly a dozen LoRaWAN networks. 

It is no wonder, then, that the Cayenne developer community has topped more than 210,000 registered members: one of the largest in the IoT and IIoT world. 

The hyper-connected world of things is a fragmented and increasingly non-heterogenous place, as the market continues to mature and grow in value. myDevices has focused in on the LoRaWAN connectivity opportunity and has made it their mission to demystify the “fog” at the edge of the network by working with sensor and device manufacturers to add their software to their solution builder and growing unified developer library, while at the same time working with many of the leading LoRaWAN network providers to include pre-integrated network configuration and management tools. 

Whether dragging and dropping, or plugging and playing, developers have flocked to Cayenne as a web-based platform, and the mobile app version of the platform now addresses the LoRa ecosystem. In addition to easy provisioning, users can also monitor and control LoRa-enabled sensors a dozen-plus different LoRaWAN networks from their iPhones. 

“This is a natural evolution and an exciting time given the response we’ve already received in creating the mobile version,” Kevin Bromber, CEO, myDevices, said. “As an IoT solutions company whose mission has always been simplifying the complex, developers can leverage the Cayenne iOS app to connect LoRa-enabled hardware to LoRaWAN networks in minutes. We are giving enterprises a much easier and less risky way to prototype and commercialize connected solutions for their customers.” 

When asked why myDevices chose to focus on LoRa Technology, Bromber said, “We wanted to support this growing ecosystem so worked closely with the LoRa Alliance and many of its members. The benefits of LoRa Technology in dramatically extending battery life are naturally attractive to solutions developers. Because the LoRaWAN community is so vibrant and growing so quickly, we wanted to provide them with the necessary tools to easily design, prototype and deploy IoT solutions.”

Long range wide area networks (LoRaWAN) are designed to connect low-cost, battery-operated sensors over long distances in harsh environments that were previously too challenging or cost prohibitive to connect. The Cayenne iOS app and dashboard includes native integration with Actility, Everynet, Kerlink, Loriot, OribiWise, PixelNetworks, Sagemcom, Senet, Stream Technologies, The Things Network, and X-Telia.

“We’ve been working steadily with myDevices for well over a year,” said John Nye, head of business development for Senet, the largest LoRaWAN service provider in North America. “They’ve done an incredible job growing their community of developers, in partnership with edge and network companies. The collaboration has been very effective for us in that Cayenne is a tool we can bring to our customers and their developers, opening up the world of options as far as sensors being easily provisioned to the network goes. The new mobile app will make it even more convenient to not only prototype but manage connected solutions in real time.”

The Cayenne iOS app allows users to build an IoT project with a mix-and-match of different LoRa-enabled sensors (from different manufacturers), then set triggers, SMS alerts, schedule actions, visualize real-time and historical data, incorporate custom widgets, and instantly operate on any supported LoRaWAN networks. Cayenne’s growing “drag and drop” library of LoRa-enabled devices from companies include: Abeeway, Adeunis, Alsenz, ATIM, Butano24, Comtac AG, Elsys, éolane, Gemtek, GlobalSat, Herames, Insigma, IMST, Kotahi, Microchip, MultiTech, NKE Watteco, NXP, RAK Wireless, Rising HF, Sagemcom, Semtech, Sensoro, STMicroelectronics, TE Sensor Solutions, Tektelic, YoSmart, and Zenseio.
