A Brief Introduction to DeviceBit Platform
The DeviceBit platform (http://www.devicebit.com/home/publicsensors) is a real-time data brokerage platform for the Internet of Things (IoT), providing most of its functionality via its Application Programming Interface (API). It is quick and easy to add Devices and Applications to the DeviceBit platform. It provides real-time data storage and remote control at scale. The DeviceBit platform is not just an easy way to prototype new Internet-enabled sensors; it's also a service that helps companies bring products to market at scale.
The DeviceBit platform provides basic data analysis tools for rapid data evaluation, as well as real-time alerts and notifications if sensors report “abnormal” conditions.
You can realize your own ideas and develop your own devices relying on this platform. You can focus on hardware instead of software infrastructure.
The DeviceBit platform also communicates with existing social network, such as Twitter and Facebook, allowing you to share what you do with your friend, which might be very helpful to their research on similar field.
