We are excited to announce the availability of a our IoT Sensortag starter kit, in collaboration with Texas Instruments and Weptech!

This is the world’s first IoT system that combines remote connectivity through IPv6 meshing with proximity detection via Bluetooth beacons.

“The Thingsquare system really shows the benefits of the dual-radio approach taken by the Sensortag hardware.

Thingsquare’s combination of a low-power 6lowpan mesh network with Bluetooth beacons is unique in the market.”
Jarle Boe, development kit manager at Texas Instruments and founder of the Sensortag platform

Push notifications is a powerful tool that lets customers stay in touch with your connected product, because they always have their phone in their pockets.

As a product producer, you can use push notifications to improve your customers’ experience from your product. If something happens, your customer will immediately get notified.

With Thingsquare, push notifications reach far: your customers will get notified even if they are far away from their devices.

Your customers, who all literally always have their smartphones in their pockets, will always have your product with them.

Push Notifications are supported both by the Android and iOS apps – and you can test it right away.

The first prototype isn’t pretty – first prototypes seldom are – but it does do the trick

A kick-ass demo is essential for every new product. For connected products, a demo is perhaps even more important because connected products break new ground.

Today we’re going to build a prototype of a connected plant monitor for under 100 dollars. It will take only a few minutes to assemble.

Unlike a typical Arduino-style prototype, our prototype has full data history and smartphone app integration from the start, thanks to the Thingsquare IoT platform.

The prototype won’t be as pretty as its original idea, but it will be an actual demo to show to early customers and investors and get that initial traction before even producing a single unit.

We all love when a new piece of technology just works, with a smooth and streamlined installation process. It feels like magic. We open the box – and it all just works! Everything is effortless and life is good. And this is equally true for professional products as it is for consumer products.

As a customer, we’d like to take this feeling of joy for granted. As the product maker, we must work hard to ensure that our customers can take this for granted.

Today we’re taking a look at how to make your connected product a joy to install and set up!

One great feature of the Thingsquare platform is the ability to connect it to customer-specific software, such as a database system or your own app. This is done by using the Thingsquare API.

The Thingsquare API is a so-called REST API, which is an industry standard type of API with bindings available for every common programming language and platform.

Today we are looking at how to get started working with the API. This assumes a bit of experience with the command line and the curl command.
