Ubidots and VERSE Technology are excited to announce a new device-information relationship designed to provide IoT enablement for industrial and individual uses. The Internet of Things (IoT) is a complex ecosystem to navigate and Ubidots and VERSE Technology look to make this easier for all IoT innovators with this start to finish sensor and information partnership. All IoT solutions require 1) Hardware, 2) Connectivity, 3) Time-series backend or Cloud, and 4) Application Enablement platform. This partnership combines VERSE’s GOBLIN 2 device with Ubidots’ cloud and application enablement platform for complete plug and play Industrial IoT rollouts.
Ubidots is an Internet of Things (IoT) data analytics and visualization company. We turn sensor and event data into information that matters for educational research, business-decisions, machine-to-machine interactions, and increased economization of global resources. Hiring a full-stack engineer to develop a platform that both functions and looks great is costly in both time and money so we did it for you. Ubidots exists as an easy and affordable means to integrate the power of the IoT into your business or research. Founded in 2013, Ubidots is an investor-backed startup providing an IoT Application Enablement Platform for tinkerers, educators, and professionals.
VERSE Technology is responsible for the GOBLIN 2 device; think Arduino on steroids! Functional for nearly any IoT deployment, the GOBLIN 2 was designed for industrial and individual use and is powered by a small rechargeable battery. This battery features an automatic lithium-ion battery management system to economize battery usage and support device deployment (nearly) anywhere. Its battery can be recharged simply via mini-usb, wall adaptor, or even small solar panels! The GOBLIN 2 provides an excellent amount of versatility for remote Industrial applications with its dual-band HSDPA/WCDMA and quad band GSM/GPRS/EDGE. With its RS485 capabilities, the GOBLIN 2 meets the increasing needs for Industrial IoT applications, which demand both reliability and easy-of-deployment at the same time.
Ubidots welcomes the GOBLIN 2 to its IoT device library and believes that the RS-485 protocol and rechargeable battery allow for enhanced autonomy for users to tinker and deploy IoT solutions. Using the GOBLIN 2, a maximum of 6 sensors can be reading an environment at any time providing valuable insight into the specifics of a situation or ecosystem. With the added bonus of solar panel charging, the GOBLIN 2 designed by VERSE Technology is an excellent option for deployment (almost) anywhere and we look forward to seeing the expansive results of this awesome new integration!
