even devices that have no knowledge of ARTIK can now work together
a video shows Amazon's Echo, and the Gear S2, and a SmartSense door panel ... all working together
ARTIK can sync together things that haven't been designed to work together
you create a manifest of all the devices and their actions
it's "if-then on steroids"
you set up a rules engine with all of the different parameters you can work with
and then follow everything in a visualization tool
developers can leverage a rich set of APIs
supporting java, android, ios, ruby, php, tizen ...
and ATRIK Cloud is available today
one of the new partners, legrand, is on stage to talk about it
a massive company for creating switches, plugs and lighting
Obviously a company that already makes these devices that are in millions of buildings sees potential in IOT
leveraging ARTIK Cloud, legrand saved tons of time and money
you can expect to see these legrand innovations in IOT throughout the world.
plenty of other partners will be doing the same
going further, ARTIK now has its own IDE built on Eclipse
obviously a professional development environment
the IDE discovers devices and then gives you a platform to bring them together
(if you didn't think this was a developer conference before, the screenshots of an IDE should tell you that now)
so, how can ARTIK help you manage millions of devices?
when it comes to industrial applications, you can't afford to push traditional software updates
to show us how updates and management work, we're going to see resin.io working with ARTIK
we can go beyond OTA updates to proper real-time updates
you can monitor devices in real-time, and if there's an issue you can push out updates right away
you don't lose a connection to the device when it's updated
so an update can't drop devices off the grid
on stage we're seeing 9 devices receiving updates right away
now that the devices are live, the ATRIK cloud is keeping a database of how they run
it's really cool stuff for those who are deep into this world.
the general theme here is giving developers an amazing number of devices and applications, all running on a centralized cloud
Samsung is now showing a reference design of what's possible with this technology
a personal assistant bot called "OTTO"
it's like an Amazon Echo ... but with a full personality
(it's also kind of creepy, tbh)
