CloudPlugs supports all major embedded hardware and all major programming languages to manage the entire lifecycle of a connected product, from prototyping to deployment and maintenance. The tutorials are designed to get you started quickly.
Connecting Things requires that devices or gateways have the capability of establishing connectivity through the Internet. To connect your device of choice to CloudPlugs requires a few simple steps:
- Create a Prototype in your CloudPlugs account and obtain a Plug-ID.
- Select the device hardware platform and a recommended library from the list below.
- Download the library and install it.
- Open an example included with the library to set the data parameters that your board will be controlling.
- Enter the Plug-ID and the controller board port that will communicate with your Thing.
- Enter the message that will publish the data read from the Thing.
- Save and close the library and your control board will automatically connect your Thing(s) to your CloudPlugs central management console.
All of our libraries are Open Source and hosted on Github so that you can use, contribute, and request features on them easily and at no cost.
