Successful products built on Xively
Xively’s users, partners and customers are some of the most innovative Internet of Things creators in the world, launching initiatives and products that can transform people’s lives.
Industrial, Real-Time Water Quality Monitoring
Turbid Stormwater Solutions
By using Xively to connect, control and monitor these solutions, Turbid is increasing the efficiency and accuracy of its solutions, making it easy for clients to remotely manage and track water quality in sediment basins. The result is the increased protection of the earth’s waterways.
Building Light Industrial Connected Products
Elektron designs, manufactures and markets innovative technology products for a connected world. Solutions can be found in all arenas, from the scientific and medical to the industrial and commercial. Elektron has chosen Xively as its IoT cloud and is also engaging Xively Consulting Services for help in conceptualizing and designing its new offerings.
Empowering the Next Generation
Internet of School Things
The next generation of students will face a world where technology plays a key role in not only getting the job done, but taking advantages of opportunities. Xively is working with the DISTANCE consortium, including Intel, to help UK students learn curriculum based lessons through the IoT while teaching them the technologies needed to take advantage of the next great paradigm shift in the digital economy.
Remotely connecting people
Good Night Lamp
A family of connected lamps that switch on no matter where they are in the world, Good Night Lamp is a 'social' IoT product that helps people stay in touch. Building on Xively, enables the GNL team to iterate and upgrade production code more rapidly, giving them more time to focus on building compelling interactive products.
Beet Sensor Network
Anders Hedberg, owner of Videocent, a company devoted to apps and hardware for the Internet of things, collaborated with Nordic Sugar and Nordic Beet Research to deploy temperature sensors that monitor crops and wirelessly transmit the data to Xively, using a GSM module. With this infrastructure in place, farmers can access and assess temperature conditions for beets anywhere in the world.
Visualight is a fully customizable RGB lightbulb that creates real-world notifications for events that interest you, for example bus arrivals, weather conditions or Facebook updates. Any data feed on Xively can be connected to the Visualight system and, with thousands of publicly available data streams and the ability to add your own feeds, partnering with Xively greatly expands the capability of Visualight.
Raising Air Quality Awareness
Air Quality Egg
The Air Quality Egg is an open collaborative community working on enabling citizens to participate in conversations around air quality, using a sensor box that measures nitrogen dioxide and carbon monoxide and an Egg that wirelessly collects and uploads to Xively. Xively makes it possible to prototype and deploy both firmware and applications quickly and easily, and for end users to share their data automatically with the rest of the community.
Monitoring Domestic Plants
Using wireless technology and Xively for infrastructure, GrowGuard is a complete plant monitoring system with which gardeners can track light, moisture, and temperature data. In the future, the company plans to expand the system with additional functionality and Xively’s robust flexibility and scalability enables them to focus on such innovations.
Aggregating Radiation Data
Fukushima Radiation Monitoring
In the days following the Japanese earthquake and nuclear crisis of 2011, when citizens were acutely concerned about radiation levels, local communities promptly used Xively (then known as Pachube) to manage, store and rapidly distribute real-time data from a wide range of professional and amateur radiation monitoring devices and geiger counters. The global community pitched in too, building mobile apps, analytical tools and visualizations to help people make sense of the data in real time, much faster, more comprehensively and more usefully than official reports were able to.
Open platform for bluetooth devices
Sensordrone is an open platform for all kinds of sensor and bluetooth peripheral devices that connect to your phone via a small keyring sensor. By sending data to Xively, Sensordrone users can better manage their historical data and build their own apps.
Saving Energy and Carbon
Current Cost produces a range of energy monitoring devices for consumers. Using Xively enables them to deliver powerful out-of-the-box web-based functionality on top of their devices, by focusing on building rich front-end experiences for their customers rather than having to build a team just to create and manage backend infrastructure.
