Arduino has announced the launch of the Arduino IoT Cloud Remote app, now available for iPhone with Android to follow shortly, giving users the ability to monitor and control their Internet of Things projects from a smartphone in-the-field.
"Initially available for free for iPhone on the App Store (Android to follow in the next few weeks), the Arduino IoT Cloud Remote app gives you with the ability to access, monitor or control your IoT projects regardless of the time or place," the Arduino team notes.
"In the field: You can read the data from your soil sensors or start your irrigation system directly from anywhere. In the factory: Constant visibility of the state of your manufacturing process status, with the ability to control your automation remotely. In the home: Monitor your home automation systems, check your previous or actual energy consumption from the convenience of your sofa."
"The addition of the Arduino IoT Cloud Remote app to access, monitor, and control dashboards on the go via your phone is the final piece of the jigsaw."
Designed for use with existing or new Arduino IoT Cloud dashboards, the app allows users to gather and display data from numerous devices as well as offering control functionality — mimicking, effectively, the standard web-based Arduino IoT Cloud interface, but tweaked for the tall-and-narrow screen of a smartphone.
