IoT Partnership Economy Grows with myDevices and Actility Team Up

By Ken Briodagh May 11, 2016

Actility, a Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) devleoper, and myDevices, maker of the Cayenne IoT project builder, on May 10 announced a technology partnership, designed to combine Actility’s IoT platform and myDevices’ connected device solution with the end goal of easing the creation and deployment of IoT projects on the LoRa ecosystem.

“This partnership underscores our commitment to simplify and accelerate the deployments of complex IoT projects such as Smart Cities and Smart Buildings” said Olivier Hersent, founder and CTO, Actility. “The myDevices Cayenne solution enables our multivendor marketplace of products and services to rapidly prototype and showcases their LoRa IoT solutions.”

Actility supports national network roll-outs in collaboration with operators and broadcasters in a number of European countries, and a citywide network in Dubai, with projects in Asia in progress and trials in the Americas. myDevices is the inventor of Cayenne, an IoT project building tool to mix-and-match connected devices, collect and visualize data, and apply sophisticated rules and alerts.

The joint effort is designed to enable enterprises with tools for  easy IoT development, such as: IoT Project Builder to easily connect, monitor and control sensors, motors, lights and others devices; Mix and Match to combine different sensors, motors, actuators from any hardware manufacturer into a single project view; Remote Sensor Monitoring for real-time visualization and historical sensor data; Remote Device Control to allow users to turn on and off motors, lights and other controllable devices using the online dashboard or from the iOS and Android apps; Advanced Rules Engine for quickly creating triggers; and Scheduling that helps set single or recurring events to turn on or off devices at pre-determined times.

“We are proud to launch this application partnership with Actility to provide the LoRa community with innovative technologies that simplify the connected world,” said Kevin Bromber, CEO, myDevices. “We are confident our partnership will impact enterprises and provide them with the ability to rapidly prototype IoT projects and facilitate innovation in the manufacturing, healthcare, home, energy, public safety, industrial, transportation and retail markets.”

Actility and myDevices are both members of the LoRa Alliance, a non-profit association of members that collaborate to drive the success of LoRaWAN as the open global standard for secure, carrier-grade IoT LPWA connectivity.
