Azure IoT Central

One scenario where it was appropriate was allowing us to communicate through apps with our temperature, moisture, and water quality sensors. It's great to have the recordings done automatically and sent back to a central processing point. It is also highly useful when used to collect this data around the clock. One situation where it was less appropriate was in trying to extend our beginning services to other businesses. This is really more of a logistical problem and not really one for the software.

For us, it has been well suited for monitoring devices that are placed remotely and have no easy access to. Most of our devices are sent to customers which we have little or no contact with. Rather than the customers finding a problem, reporting it to us and then us investigating it. We can just be notified of the problem and deal with it without the customer realising.

Pros

Azure IoT Central

  • Creation and management of user roles, who can access your IoT resources and configure the level of access, very granular and self-explanatory
  • Configuration of apps and devices, integrations, and administrations are done in an intuitive way and it's easy to navigate your way through the available settings.
  • The documentation is really excellent, everything is explained succinctly and there are enough practical examples to get you started.
  • Existing templates can save you a lot of time in getting your desired setup complete with less effort and time invested.

Handles excellently and after trying a few of them I saw that it is most suitable for the current work of the company and all the products that the company works with

I haven't really found any other product or service which does the same as UpSwift, therefore I have not needed to look for alternative products
