Pybytes is our free middleware platform available for all Pycom modules. We’re currently running the closed beta with a view to releasing the first full version late 2017. Here’s what we can say about it at this point.
Pybytes will work very easily and straight out of the box. You simply hook up your Pycom module and the pre-configured settings will enable you to immediately see your device and data appear on the portal. With a few clicks of the mouse, a few strokes of the keyboard, you will rename your device, see which firmware is loaded, the type of network connection used and so on.
Graphical and Text Interface
Quickly manage all your data flows and see real-time results from your connected things through a wide array of graphical and text mediums such as bar and line charts.
Users can build their own dashboard in minutes pulling and visualising data onto the platform via simple widgets. Widgets can be moved around to make sure the dashboard is completely customised to your preferences.
You’ll be able to configure the dashboard widgets to add sensor based metrics: Temperature, movement, machine status, you name it, you connect it and you manage it! All in a very intuitive way.
Access specific information about your modules that helps your organise your army. Edit properties and know which modules might need some special attention.
Pybytes will offer Geolocation to enable you to locate your devices enabled by a simple WiFi scan to your device. The Pybytes system uses Google Geolocation Services and provides an accuracy of approx 20 meters. There are costs associated with this particular feature and we’ll therefore charge a small contribution for this feature.
Here you will be able to check the firmware version of your device, when it last sent data, how much data was sent, what network it connected to etc, in essence, everything you need to manage your device and the health of your device.
It’s going to come with some free storage too. No hidden costs with us. We’ll include some data storage for the 1st year of each device you hook up (subject to fair use policy).
