IOT & Cloud
Backend Development

LX has proven experience with IOT Cloud Backend, we worked with Agersens to develop the custom electronics, embedded firmware and Cloud integration for the eShepherd™ system, which is now on display in the Stockman’s Hall of Fame, Longreach QLD.

IOT & Cloud backends that are ahead of the pack

LX has developed hundreds of IOT products and has used this hard earned experience to develop a reliable cloud backend that can be used as a foundation for your application.

Key areas of expertise include:

  • A common interface for applications and services to interact with a diverse range of devices over a wide range of network technologies such as LoRaWAN, Sigfox or CAT-M1.
  • Decoding from compact network efficient data formats common in bandwidth constrained IoT network stacks to JSON or XML formats easily consumable in web and mobile applications.
  • Ability to configure webhooks so that data is forwarded immediately upon arrival to consuming services.
  • APIs to read streams of event data submitted from devices or groups of devices in the field.
  • Automated alerts when data is outside of expected parameters. For example if the soils moisture content drops below or exceeds certain levels a webhook, email or SMS can be sent.
  • APIs for managing device configuration.
  • APIs for deploying over-the-air firmware updates to devices.
  • APIs for querying time series data for specific data fields and time ranges.

We also offer a turn key dashboard solution which is built on top of our backend offering.

  • Assign deployment specific information to your devices and sensors such as asset numbers and location information to make them easily identifiable
  • Visualise real world values by specifying the relevant environmental parameters of your application (e.g. convert ultrasonic distance measurements into litres remaining in a water tank).
  • Dashboard pages showing detailed information reported from a range of different device and sensor types.
  • Data visualisations including rich charting capabilities.
  • Visualise the location of the devices in your solution on the map and for tracker devices visualise movements over time.
  • Export historical information as a CSV file.
