Update: These MK808 and MK908 devices may work well for you. However, note that in our monitoring experiences with Tools.Valarm.net, we’ve had much better reliability, energy-efficiency, and stability using dedicated Industrial IoT sensor hubs.
Here’s a video tutorial on connecting those YoctoHubs and Raspberry Pis to Valarm Tools Cloud. Valarm software is used with these for long-term field deployments in various industries, for businesses, government agencies and other organizations for monitoring things like:
Have you seen how small mini PCs are? Incredible, they are about the size of a stick of gum. That is all that’s needed for a dual (MK808) or even quad-core (MK908) processor, RAM (1GB or more), & input/output (I/O) ports: powerful enough for Tools.Valarm.net. Below is a video from our YouTube channel about these Android devices.
We’ve been running a series of tests with a variety of sensors like thermocouples, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), electrical resistance, and water.
These micro-Androids make for great dedicated devices for deployment in the field for applications like Smart Water Monitoring Systems and other Industrial IoT sensors.
The MK808B has WiFi built in and you can plug in a USB ethernet or 3G/4G device if needed in your scenario. Valarm uploads your Industrial IoT sensor device measurements to the Valarm Tools Cloud servers where you can map, graph, analyze, and download all of your sensor data.
