    We used in mostly all cases in our company. It is best for beginner users and for getting started for IoT Developers. You can give it to any beginner and they can easily learn in just a few minutes. I can say the best product for the starter projects. Everything is just fab!

    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

    Particle

    • Particle is simple to use and accessible to any user.
    • The servers housed in the data center allow us to respond to any problem
    • Through the interface the data is analyzed in a very simple way.
    • Ideal interface for the exploitation of our devices, computers and mobile phones.
    • The interface for iOTs allows us to interact with the system in a few steps.
    • It allows, among other things, the display of information calculated from the data collected from different iOTs, in an understandable way.

    • Accelerates remote management for iot devices
    • Allows for remote upgrades and fleet management
    • Alerts us when devices go offline allowing us to be more proactive with our customers

    I have used other IoT Development Modules like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and others. Most of all starter kit doesn't come with WiFi or Cellular built-in. Arduino is a basic module where you have to add WiFi or Cellular manually in it. Raspberry Pi has WiFi but it cannot be used for small or medium use cases, it can be used in advanced and complex systems building and it is costlier.

    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
