Ubidots Announces 3 New IoT App Development Components to Economize IoT Solution Assembly

At Ubidots, we work daily enabling IoT Entrepreneurs, IoT Engineers, and those exploring IoT solutions with Application development components and tools to efficiently assemble IoT Apps that deliver insights and solve problems. Seeing our user base grow in 2018, we kicked it into overdrive this last quarter to better serve all the new and continuing developers of Ubidots. Accordingly, we are very proud to announce 3 new IoT App Development Components and some new tools that you can use to Develop and Deploy your very own IoT Application.

Specifically, we are announcing:

New Components:

  1. Ubidots Data Explorer (beta), an admin data analysis tool to identify trends, anomalies, and correlations
  2. Dynamic Dashboards, data visualization with primary and replica technology (master/slave) to efficiently see different device data effortlessly. **Gradual rollout to users began Oct. 17th**
  3. Device Group Bulk Operations and Global Events, efficient App device management for scaling IoT Solutions

Other Tools released:

  1. Ubidots Developer Hub and Documentation – Are you Software Minded? or Hardware Minded?
  2. “Back to Normal” notificationslearn more
  3. Voice Calling notificationslearn more
  4. Admin in-app notification center
  5. Account Usage Analysis 

These new components and tools were built with your needs in mind and we want to send a special thanks to the 200+ developers who over the last 3 months conducted testings, feedback, and notes to ensure these new tools are applied correctly to make the task of IoT App development simpler than ever before. We are excited to announce these components and see how you use them to assemble real IoT solutions.

Ubidots Data Explorer – It’s time to closely Analyze Data

The Ubdidots Data Explorer is a collection of data analysis tools to help identify and analyze trends, anomalies, and correlations across variables in an App. With the Data Explorer you can:

  • Apply regression algorithms to create trend lines and insights with Regression Analysis.
  • Analyze data across different time periods with Historical Data Navigation
  • Compare two or more variables one-on-one or across several charts with Correlation Analysis
  • Graph variables along with a rolling mean, max, min, and/or sums with Max/Min Analysis
  • Perform moving average analysis for anomaly detection with Anomaly Detection

The Ubidots Data Explorer is now available in beta, and you can learn more here.

Dynamic Dashboards – Visualize Device Insights

With the master/slave logic of Dynamic Dashboards, when a device is selected from the dashboard setting bar, then all variables within each widget will automatically update to reflect the device’s variables. This is achieved because dynamic dashboard widgets are not associated with predetermined variables, but instead, with variable labels (i.e. `label=temperature`).

Bulk App Operations – using Device Groups

Device Groups couple devices to perform batch operations, including but not limited to bulk adding devices to an Organization or create a global event across an entire device network. Using Device Groups admins can:

  • Create Global Events across a network of devices
  • Bulk assign Devices to Groups
  • Bulk assign Devices to an Organization
  • Bulk delete Devices – learn more
  • Create hundreds of Devices with a simple CVS upload – learn more

WHAT’S NEXT?

Stay tuned for what is looking to be our most exciting releases of 2018 with the coming additions and expansion of inter-platform communications with Ubidots Data Plugins and major improvements to the App end-user experience.

For the remainder of 2018 and the first 6 months of 2019, Ubidots will be rolling out new tools to claim devices, single sign-on capabilities, and deploy end-user Android and iOS Apps to put your IoT Solutions directly into your customer’s hands.

Your feedback on Ubidots software, hardware integrations, and ongoing development with Ubidots IoT Application Development and Deployment platform have helped shape our platform and services to see you succeed. We’re on “cloud-9” with these releases and cannot wait to hear your opinions and how you’ll connect the dots to Ubidots and deliver a problem-solving solution.
