Helium and Ubidots Announce a next level plug-n-play partnership

Today Ubidots and Helium proudly announce a partnership to rapidly connect LoRaWAN with IoT applications, helping "The People's Network" turn data into insights.

With over 18,000 hotspots deployed throughout the world, Helium has enabled developers to pull IoT data in from the field, and  this partnership with Ubidots will help leverage that data into real-time dashboards and forward-facing applications that businesses can rely on for advanced operational insights.

“Helium sits at a unique intersection of long range technologies, crypto, and collaborative networks. We're thrilled to be a part of The People's Network and can't wait to see what our fellow IoT enthusiasts and entrepreneurs build using both products in tandem” - said Agustin, Ubidots CEO and Co-founder

To kick off this partnership, we have worked jointly in creating a pre-built Integration allowing users to easily forward sensor data from Helium Console to Ubidots using Plugins, Ubidots latest feature which aims to help IoT integrators and entrepreneurs easily connect 3rd-party sources to their IoT applications.

Ubidots plugin:

This Integration is optimized to automatically decode Helium’s JSON schema (pulling items such as downlink URLs so you don’t have to!) while still allowing for full customization using the power of Python.

All of this may be added to your devices in minutes with the same ease-of-use you are accustomed to in Helium's Console:

“Helium is extremely excited to be working with Ubidots on this Integration. We believe Ubidots' prebuilt applications and advanced data analytics capabilities will help our community bridge the gap between capturing data at the edge and generating actionable insights they can rely on for critical business decisions.” - Travis L. Teague, Developer Growth Lead, Helium

As Labels are so crucial to the Helium Console workflow, we haven’t dropped them at the Integration seam, they are automatically converted into Tags on the Ubidots side!

New devices created in Helium Console are automatically mirrored in Ubidots every time a payload from a new device is received. This saves you the need to manually create hundreds or thousands of devices, or copy-and-paste DevEUIs from one platform to the other.
