WeMakeIoT’s solutions consist of the hardware, the software and the connectivity. While there are many platforms that enable this, none are as easy to develop as Particle.

Particle is a fully integrated IoT platform that gives you everything you need to build an IoT device. They provide the hardware, which lets us connect our devices to the internet in minutes, development tools to help program the firmware, and Particle Cloud which gives us full control over our devices. Particle devices come with Wi-Fi, cellular and Bluetooth connectivity and allows mesh networks between devices. The standout feature during development was that all their devices support Over-the-Air updates from remote locations.

 

WeMakeIoT has been developing solutions using Particle for a wide range of applications and we invite you to approach us for Particle-based development.

WeMakeIoT's IoT solution development using Particle

Below are a few use-cases from projects we have undertaken for clients using Particle

 

Smart Irrigation Controller System






Client Profile
The Client is an agricultural automation solutions provider

Requirement
Develop a Smart Irrigation Controller System to automate the irrigation process. It is to determine the optimum amount of water to be used for irrigation, after analysing environmental conditions. It needs to be controlled over a web page which can help it control the attached water pumps.

Solution
We developed a solution using Particle Argon to capture sensor values and integrate it with the client’s web application. It has three configuration modes for setting schedules, intervals and conditions. It also has the ability to configure thresholds. The status of the pumps, the history, and the environmental conditions can be monitored on a display. All the reports are logged online and can be compared to boost productivity.

Turnaround time: 2 months

 

 

Bird Tracking




Bird Tracking

Client Profile
The client is an ornithologist (Bird Researcher)

Requirement
Develop a solution to track and collect data from a Particle Electron 2G device and send it to the cloud. The data needs to be sent immediately when cellular connectivity is available, and needs to be stored and sent later in the absence of cellular connectivity.

Solution
We programmed Particle Electron to decode the NMEA data coming from the hornet GPS module and filter the required data. This data is sent to Particle Cloud where we have configured a webhook which will direct the data to our database. In the absence of cellular connectivity, the data gets logged on an SD card and is sent to Particle Cloud upon regaining connectivity.

Turnaround time: 1 month





Water Trough Monitoring






Client Profile
The client owns a vast cattle farm in Australia.

Requirement
Implement a remote water trough monitoring system for a cattle farm. The system needs to facilitate remote monitoring of water levels in these troughs and send appropriate alerts upon the depletion of the water level beyond the required level.

Solution
We developed a solution that allowed the client to visualize the water levels through a mobile application and receive images of the water troughs continuously. We built a custom gateway using Raspberry Pi and LoRa shield and configured it to send the data to a web server. Images of the water trough are continuously captured with the help of a camera module, consisting of a Particle Electron microcontroller and a serial camera.

Turnaround time: 2 months
