Create innovative connected objects using any software/hardware combination

We provide free, open and supported libraries along with tutorials and documentation to allow you to connect to Xively using the hardware you want and the languages you know. To make it even easier, we are partnering with new hardware platforms every day from a variety of vendors. The libraries leverage our standards-based API over MQTT, WebSockets and HTTP to make connecting to the Internet of Things simple, intuitive and fast.

Hardware, Actuator, Sensor, Gateway


Integrate your application with your connected object

Design, build and debug your connected product with full control

Using Xively Management Studio, you can get prototypes up and running quickly and easily. You have full permissioning, lifecycle management and account management control for service instances, domains, device batches, queues, applications, and users.

Get Started

Integrate your application with your connected object

Get real-time insight into your connected object’s data

Publishing sensor data from a connected object or subscribing to data from other objects and applications is fast and simple with Xively’s API. Now you can be quickly and accurately informed about any device at any time.

App in action

Integrate your application with your connected object

Build connected apps for anything and everything

Creating interactive apps for connected products has never been easier. Our client libraries including iOS, Android, JavaScript, and more, make it easy to leverage our API so that you can focus on your IoT innovation rather than infrastructure.


Integrate with third-party systems

What if you could use Xively’s IoT platform to connect existing systems with real-time data from customers using your products? Integrating Xively into line of business applications can bring far greater visibility into your organization from top to bottom. This includes everything from manufacturing and inventory ERPs (SAP) to marketing and sales CRMs (Salesforce) to support (Salesforce Service Cloud) and logistics (Fleetmatics).

Xively also makes it easy to update devices, perform remote diagnostics, reduce break-fix cycles, or provide better user support and maintenance. With LogMeIn BoldChat, for example, you can integrate real-time chat support into your connected solution, providing a quick lifeline to direct support. Also, LogMeIn Rescue is a powerful remote support tool that allows a support technician to remotely access, control and repair a Xively-connected device or application, exponentially increasing the reach of your support team.

Pilot your system end-to-end

The code is tested, your prototypes refined. You have integrated objects, apps and services into a connected product. Your vision is now a reality. With everything working, it’s time to get your product manufactured and test the production version. The deployment tools in Xively Management Studio allow you to simply create batches of products small or large so that you can fully test your production-ready system.

Deploy at will; scale as needed

Now it’s time to scale. Create batches of products dynamically to match production, and then create startup scripts to automate domain-specific product batches within your Xively service instances. Xively will wait to hear each and every device come online for the first time and when they do, our provisioning engine will recognize them, secure the connection, and give you full control. Our scalable infrastructure ensures that your connected products deliver reliable, secure and compelling experience. Before you know it, your products are deployed and connected around the world. 

Deplay and Scale

Never has it been so easy to take an idea to production.

Create actionable intelligence

  • Reporting

    A simple plot of incoming activity can go a long way to helping visualize trends in your data. Reporting on what is happening with how customers use your products as well as machine performance within your organization is a foundation for business intelligence. Xively’s structured storage and retrieval API methods make it easy to build or integrate with the many reporting software tools out there.

  • Filtering

    No matter how good your data looks, there are always outliers that need to be weeded out and smoothed. Leaving your data unfiltered can sometimes render bad results, which is why Xively offers methods for adding triggers or more complex code into your system to handle varying conditions in your data.

  • Exploring

    The more data points you collect from your devices, the harder it is to see the forest for the trees. Data deluge is a huge issue for IoT data, but there are simple things you can do to find clusters of content or trends in your data. Xively can help you build the right algorithms for data discovery and previously unidentified insight into your connected objects.

  • Predicting

    Machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms are commonplace now in many database-drive or other types of cloud-based systems. Predictive analytics and actions can be an integral part of anything from staying ahead of break-fix cycles in a manufacturing plant to sending predictive events to products used by your customers. Xively has the expertise to help you build the right tools for your business.

  • Acting

    Collecting device information in the cloud is just one piece of the puzzle. What if you want to take a certain action based on a particular data point, or time series trend, coming from your device? The ability to not just view but respond to variable conditions can set you apart from the competition and open up new possibilities for how customers interact with your product. The Xively API allows you to set up device queues with varying permissions to effectively and efficiently take action with any Xively-connected object.

Manage at Scale

Problems happen and when they do, we have you covered. You can monitor every device you have live in real time through our scalable Xively Management Studio or integrate that management capability into your support systems API. In either case, you can perform functions such as deactivation, reset, configuration, retirement, archival, and more.
