[prMac.com] Halifax, Canada - Codenize Software Services today is pleased to announce IoT Monitor 1.9 for iOS, an update to its app that lets users search and monitor readings worldwide from sensors that are networked via Cosm feeds. The Cosm platform has enabled The Internet of Things, which "refers to uniquely identifiable objects and their virtual representations in an Internet-like structure," according to Wikipedia. IoT Monitor accesses sensors such as Air Quality, Water Level, Humidity, Weather, or any custom Cosm feed. The platform is especially popular with users who enjoy DIY projects, and many feeds have been created using the general purpose, Arduino single-board microcontroller kit. Local government agencies, schools, colleges, and industry also establish public and private feeds.
* Search for sensors such as Air Quality, Water Level, Humidity, Beer Temp, Weather, or add your own Cosm feed
* Build unlimited dashboards across multiple feeds and data streams
* Organize your data streams with separate dashboards for each location, or combine multiple locations into a single dashboard
* Bookmark your favorites for easy access
* Get the latest sensor reading
* Plot live data streams
* Plot historical sensor data
* Print a PDF report of plot and sensor data
* Export a data stream to CSV file
* Gauge view
* Add alias names for data streams
* Quick access to sensor website
* Adjustable search radius
* Overview screen at application start option
* Add images for each data stream
* Works with public and private Cosm feeds
IoT Monitor features a full-page, map-based search function, where users can touch any area, city, or town and see a list of all available feeds. Search radius and maximum results are user definable, and a text search is also available. Touching any item on the list brings up a full-page of information about the feed including the following specifics: Created Date, Creator, Data Streams, Description, Email, Feed, ID#, Location, Private/Public, Status, Tags, Title, Last Updated, and Version. Tags, Location, Email, Creator, and Data Streams are expandable to full-page sub-listings.
* Get live sensor information for weather, air quality, etc.
* Use for hardware development for your IoT devices
* Organize and monitor your sensor feeds for multiple sites
* Monitor your DIY home automation projects
The number of Cosm feeds grows daily. Wikipedia states, "Cosm is an on-line database service allowing developers to connect sensor-derived data (e.g., energy and environment data from objects, devices and buildings) to the Web and to build their own applications based on that data. Cosm manages millions of data points per day from thousands of individuals, organizations and companies around the world. Data can be pushed from the sensor end, or pulled by the Cosm servers every 15 minutes, with the data feeds then made available in multiple formats at no charge."
"The service allows people to embed real-time graphs & widgets in websites; analyze and process historical data pulled from any public Cosm feed; send real-time alerts from any datastream to control scripts, devices & environments. Cosm is built to encourage open digital ecosystems, for example electricity meters, weather stations, building management systems, air quality stations, biosensors and Geiger counters."
"IoT Monitor is a client application for devices that are connected to Cosm.com," stated Aaron Davidson of Codenize Software Services Inc. "Users can search for public sensor feeds and build their own dashboards. Or, IoT device developers can use it to monitor and troubleshoot their devices during development. Users can print or display historical and live sensor data."
