Open-source IoT Platform

Open-source IoT Platform

Provides ability to register and managedevices. Allows to monitor client-side and provision server-sidedevice attributes. Provides API for server-side applications to sendRPC commandsto devices and vice-versa.

Thingsboard platform allows to track vehicles state and alerts via various sensors, plot vehicle routes in real-time and browse their sensors reading history at the same time using customizable high quality widgets and dashboards.

Process incoming device data with flexible rules and plugins based on device attributes or message content. Forward data to external systems or trigger alarms using rules. Enrich server-side functionality or send commands to devices using plugins.

In my company, we are currently merging our current LoRaWAN and Big Data Analytics solutions with Thingsboard, to have both of best worlds, and so far we are very happy with the results. We look forward to see Thingsboard being established as a weapon of choice for various IoT use cases and from our end we will try to contribute as much possible to its success.

Thingsboard allows you to create rich IoT Dashboards for data visualization and remote device control in real-time. More than 30 customizable widgets allows you to build end-user custom dashboards for most IoT use-cases.

Provides 30+ configurable widgets out-of-the-box and ability to create your own widgets using built-in editor. Built-in line-charts, digital and analog gauges, maps and much more.

Device management, data collection, processing and visualization

Thingsboard is the new kid on the (IoT PaaS) block. Its designed by developers for developers with emphasis to end-customers, with promising features that do not existing on other open source IoT platforms yet. Its build on proven, no-bullshit enterprise open source technologies and has progressed very fast since its public launch thanks to its committed kick-ass senior dev team.

Extend default platform functionality using customizablerulespluginswidgetsandtransport implementations. In addition to MQTT, CoAP and HTTP support, Thingsboard users can use their own transport implementations or customize behaviour of existing protocols.

We were struggling trying to implement our own IOT infrastructure when Thingsboard suddenly appeared. Immediately we started testing and were amazed with the feature completeness, stability and ease of use of this great platform, although it was only in version 1.0 and had been released just days prior.

It enables device connectivity via industry standard IoT protocols – MQTT, CoAP and HTTP and supports both cloud and on-premises deployments. Thingsboard combines scalability, fault-tolerance and performance so you will never lose your data.

Define data processing rules and trigger reactions using plugins.

Thingsboard is licensed under Apache License 2.0, so you can use any it in your commercial products for free. You can even host it as a SaaS or PaaS solution.

Deliver and store data from smart meters in reliable and fault-tolerant way, visualize real-time and historical energy consumption data on customizable end-user dashboards, integrate with third-party analytics frameworks and solutions.

Thingsboard offers a secure, scalable IoT solution that, being Open Source, we can control. Having created our own Thingsboard instance, we have found it to be very customisable via widgets, the rule engine and the plugin system allowing it to be used in a variety of specialist situations.

Collect and store telemetry data in reliable way, surviving network and hardware failures. Access collected data using customizable web dashboards or server-side APIs.

Collect important indicators for your agricultural production such as weather conditions or facilities state via IoT sensors and visualize them using end-user customizable dashboards provided by Thingsboard platform.

Provision, monitor and control your devices in secure way using rich server-side APIs.

Another thing we love Thingsboard is its user interface/dashboard and its widget library. We can build beautiful and professional IoT dashboard with drag and drop of the widgets. If you see the official demo, you must agree with me.

Amount of supported server-side requests and devices increase linearly as new thingsboard servers are added in clustering mode. No downtime, server restarts or application errors.

Our business needed some special features on the frontend and some major modifications on the backend but after exchanging a few emails it was clear that Thingsboard was the way to go. The necessary changes were implemented in a matter of a few weeks and the quality and thoroughness of the implementation far exceed our expectations. Ive been working with OSS since the mid 1990s and know of its many benefits but the quality of Thingsboard as well as the speed of development continues to impress me.

Thingsboardis an open-source IoT platform for data collection, processing, visualization, and device management.

Supports transport encryption for both MQTT and HTTP(s) protocols. Supports device authentication and device credentials management.

All thingsboard servers are identical. No master-workers or hot standby. Node failure is automatically detected. Failed nodes can be replaced without downtime. Persisted data is replicated using reliable NoSQL database.

Collect and store telemetry data in scalable and fault-tolerant way. Visualize your data with built-in or custom widgets and flexible dashboards. Share dashboards with your customers.

Support multi-tenant installations out-of-the-box. Single tenant may have multiple tenant administrators and millions of devices and customers.

Integrate devices connected to legacy and third-party systems using existing protocols. Connect to your OPC-UA server or MQTT broker in minutes by followingthis guide.

After a month of research, we found and selected Thingsboard. Thingsboard stood out as it is fully integrated and built from industrial strength components like Netty, Cassandra and Akka, which gave us the confidence that it can scale out and up. That is important as we dont want a system upgrade and migration if the system fails to scale out or gives a poor performance after production.
