New features on Device management

Set parameters for your MQTT devices before installation or power up

This new feature allows you to set the parameters of your MQTT devices right after provisioning on Live Objects. It removes the need to wait for the parameters declaration by the device upon its first connection to Live Objects, and allows for massive device configuration ahead of powering up.

Perform secure firmware or resource updates on your MQTT or SMS devices

Stay secure by setting a default security policy for over-the-air updates to your devices orchestrated by Live Objects, whether for firmware, configuration files or other generic resources.

Route data more efficiently

Route command status events

Routing command status events is even more user-friendly now that you can use the web portal in addition to the existing APIs. Filters can also be set when defining the routing rule.

Connect Live Objects easily to your IoT environment

Live Objects can easily fit into your IoT environment using our open source external connectors, available on Github.

Kerlink connector

The Kerlink connector enables connecting your private Kerlink LoRa network server to Live Objects. It will automatically sync the device fleet and exchange data and commands with your Kerlink NS.

Get the code on Github

Please contact us if you are a customer of the IoT Connect Low Power offer and want to use this feature.

Azure IoT Hub connector

Alike the Kerlink connector, the Azure IoT Hub connector will sync your Live Objects fleet with Azure IoT Hub, forward your IoT data to Azure and process commands to your devices initiated from Azure.

SDK for external connector

You can use our SDK for external connector to develop a bridge between any proprietary device or device cloud and Live Objects. This connector supports device management operations (including device status and commands) and data forwarding to Live Objects.

Connector for Eurotech’s IoT Edge solution

Live Objects supports your Edge use-cases with the Eurotech solution. We provide a Node-RED connector that makes the link between Live Objects and Eurotech Everyware Cloud that orchestrates your Edge nodes and devices.

SDK reloaded

We have new revisions of the Arduino and the Linux Raspberry SDKs!

The Arduino MKR family boards

The new Arduino SDK is far more accessible and simple to use. It supports (almost) the whole MKR family plus the IoT Nano 33 board. Cellular boards can also use the SMS protocol to communicate with Live Objects.

The Linux/Raspberry had a refresh, and simpler installation tutorial on Raspberry.
