Point & Click LoRaWAN IoT Application Development with TTN and Ubidots

September 26, 2018 – Today, Ubidots and The Things Network (TTN) proudly announce an industry partnership and integration that simplifies IoT data collection, enablement, and delivery for developers deploying IoT applications. Combining the effortless hardware and LoRaWAN connectivity network of TTN with Ubidots’ IoT Application Development and Deployment software, innovative businesses and makers have all the tools needed to solve problems and make a difference.

The Things Network is a global Internet of Things network provider that enables low-power devices to exchange data with application service providers like Ubidots using long-range technology called LoRaWAN. TTN empowers developers to take complete control over IoT deployment, building their own network, managing security and quality of service, and connecting to advanced tools and platforms likes Ubidots.

With dozens of successful deployments already, Ubidots and The Things Network look forward to reinforcing their ease-of-use model and mentality, continuing to eliminate that technical barriers that impede successful IoT applications from going to market.

One example of this commitment to ease-of-use is a testbed of plug-n-play Smart Vineyard Applications providing insights to the Glunz Family Winery & Cellars in Paso Robles, California. The applications deployed at the Glunz Winery monitor both soil and weather conditions outdoors, and wine cellar storage temperature and humidity indoors – 24/7. In a place where vast daily temperature changes are normal, this TTN-enabled and Ubidots-powered solution allows the winery to adjust ventilation in the cellars to ensure a temperate and controlled environment at all times. This reduces the need to top-up barrels throughout the year, ultimately resulting in a more refined and untampered wine.

Johan Stokking, The Things Network’s CTO and co-founder says: “Creating end-to-end Internet of Things solutions is hard, projects are risky and LoRaWAN development is challenging. To make IoT accessible, we need to provide developer-friendly tools. The partnership with Ubidots sets a great example of removing the complexity in the development process, allowing developers to focus on things that matter.”
