We’re excited to announce the imminent launch of the long awaited Pybytes Middleware platform.

Pybytes forms an important part of Pycom’s vision around a fully integrated IoT stack offer. As a free service, on a pay-as-you-grow model, it is another tool for developers who want to get up and running quickly.

Features such as device and data management are included for free for up to 500 devices for a period of 6 months. As Pybytes has a storage feature, you can store up to 100Mb per device for absolutely nothing and this gives you a great history of what your devices have been up to.

Pybytes lets you use all the IoT networks we have available on our development boards and OEM modules and the setup wizard makes this super easy.

Time for a little anecdote: we initially gave the Pybytes development team a challenge around getting people to ‘connect a device within 30 seconds’ with a wizard. As we stared back into blank faces, we wondered if they were going to be able to deliver on this…Well, fast forward a good few months and we’re delighted to say they successfully delivered on the challenge. It’s all super quick and fantastically easy to get on with.

In Pybytes you’ll also be able to see all your device information such as status, MAC address, and location. It’s all displayed in a table and can be accessed as and when you need it.

In addition, we’ve added some really cool widgets in a completely configurable dashboard to give you access to your telemetry data in the way you like it.

You can set your own applications alerts and we’re adding more features on a continuous basis.

This is all the easy stuff covered. Pybytes also has some neat advanced features such as Firmware Over The Air (FOTA) and enhanced security (launching over the summer 2018).

So, you know what you have to do on Thursday 🙂
