Introducing the new “Views” feature we incorporated into our Gear platform. It is a powerful tool that will allow the data collected from the field, already presented in various sections of the platform, to be viewed in real time applied to a graphical representation of the installation in question. Such representations can range from equipment drawings to actual installation images or isometric representations that allow for rapid interpretation of field variables, to speed up decision-making and shorten event response times.
The applicability to maintenance management is virtually unlimited: from data related to equipment usage hours, to engine vibration levels, oil temperature, power consumption. All this information could be collected remotely, sent to our platform and subsequently integrated with the maintenance tool selected by the end customer. This prevents data collection through costly manual processes (logistics, time, human resources), adds little value, and often brings problems in loading data into the maintenance management system.
Imagine the savings associated with not having to send maintenance personnel to relieve data from remote facilities for which they must travel significant distances in company vehicles and often undergo unfavorable weather conditions in order to do these surveys. This is not to count the risks associated with the facility itself where it is not always easy to access the data as it is at height or there may be risks of electric shock, burns, etc.
Imagine being able to keep the maintenance management tool up to date and be able to schedule maintenance tasks knowing that the information is real and not estimated. With our new functionality of Views in Gear, now it is easier!
Let’s talk about a common mistake of comparing an IoT platform with the use of InfluxDB + Grafana.
InfluxDB is a highly respected time-series database for developers and can be used as a service to visualize telemetry. Developers must implement new queries, and then business people familiar with SQL can use Grafana to query. The cost of “baking” Influx into the platform is very high for developers, such as preprocessing operational data such as uptime into the Kapacitor pipeline. A key limitation is that it must be decided in advance whether each incoming attribute is metadata or telemetry (you cannot “group” telemetry).
This analysis shows why the best solution for managing IoT devices is a SaaS tool specifically designed and optimized for this purpose, rather than trying to build custom applications from common IaaS database technologies. Many companies like yours are already using Cloud Studio to increase customer satisfaction and reduce costs so don’t hesitate to launch your free trial immediately.
The fact is that it will take years to build a customized cloud platform from scratch, and starting from an existing framework may greatly reduce this work – in some cases to days or weeks.

The carbon footprint can be defined as the impact left by human activity on the environment. That is, the environmental brand generated by a person, product or organization on the planet due to its daily actions, totaled according to emission parameters of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases (GHGs) released into the atmosphere.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency of the USA, the largest emitters of CO2 are:
These industries can also look towards IoT devices and applications as a tool to reduce their carbon footprint and their impact on the environment. At first, such initiatives for sustainability and climate change remediation took a minimal part in their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities. Now, these companies and industries are looking at carbon footprint reduction activities as a mainstream initiative that forms a significant part of their operations and their businesses.
IoT can help industries execute their initiatives towards reducing their carbon footprint and greenhouse gas emissions. In a report published by Ericsson, the use of IoT has the potential of reducing emissions by as much as 63.5 gigatons by the year 2030, should all industrial sectors participate. IoT is destined to be an enabler that will help industries reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and increase their energy efficiency.
The most important uses of the Internet of Things (IoT) to reduce the carbon footprint are:

Our current approach is to apply our platform to projects where new technologies, and IoT in particular, provide a path to improving energy efficiency, control and maintainability, such as:
Our platform facilitates the monitoring and control of infrastructure through customizable dashboards, incorporating IoT devices that interact with the client’s ecosystem, which allows the automated sending of notifications to events.
To meet our objectives we take into account two pillars:
Deployment of devices on site such as:
Interconnection with our cloud platform which includes:
At Cloud Studio, we have developed an IoT platform that addresses real life verticals, offering innovative, flexible and field-proven end-to-end solutions
Our competitive advantage
Our focus is on applying our platform to projects where modern technologies, and the IoT in particular, provide a path to improve energy efficiency, control, and maintainability, such as:
In the current times where COVID-19 has forced us to drastically modify our routines, we ask ourselves, In what situation is the infrastructure that we frequent?
We can find different situations:
In short, the most important aspects are energy consumption, safety and maintenance.
In the first place regarding the use of energy, we have no news of the state in which the devices such as lights on or mechanical timers are operating on unnecessary devices or if the heating or cooling continues to work and above all it is very complex to register if the continuous operation of this has caused incidents.
Secondly, with regard to security, a large part of the infrastructure was not in a condition to be empty: we have no knowledge of the movements that are registered and we are not sure that all accesses are closed.
Finally maintenance, how can we detect a failure? Or simply, How do I check the status of the infrastructure after some maintenance activity? How can we plan it and how can we optimize it?
The Internet of Things application allows remote monitoring and management, becoming increasingly essential in these times.
Remote monitoring is divided into two parts: energy saving and maintenance.
First we find energy savings that allow us to achieve several objectives such as: Reducing consumption, Reducing costs (remember that these are not the same because reducing consumption involves consuming less, but reducing costs involves more strategies, for example using infrastructure in a different way, specifically using it at different times, let’s remember that schedules have big impacts on tariffs because they vary throughout the day , therefore it is not the same to consume energy at a peak time, which in a valley schedule, which prices are reduced, in short the objective of this variable focuses on consuming smarter.
On the other hand, we have control over the occupation that is the assembly of strategies that have to do with the infrastructure that is not in use consuming as little as possible or only what is necessary.
The control of the generation, this is something that has grown a lot over time and has to do with understanding that we constantly generate energy to apply it in the best possible way.
Finally, working with a Continuous Strategy means that energy savings depend on having a strategy and running it continuously.
The second aspect of remote monitoring that is Maintenance allows us to remotely monitor the following aspects:
Inventory management which gives us great advantages when it comes to monitoring remotely.
Automate fault detection, this is essential to be able to predict others that may be chained.
Determining exact types of failure allows us to understand the reasons for failure, so we can determine what type of repair is going to be done most accurately.
Finally, schedule or perform preventive maintenance
When we talk about infrastructure it’s really important understand its focus and characteristics to correctly apply IoT solutions, within the types of infrastructure we can find:
Critical infrastructure, it requires high availability. Difficult access infrastructure, these are usually neglected. On the other hand, we can find Difficult maintenance Infrastructure , which requires complex repairs, and lastly, High consumption infrastructure or infrastructure with numerous sites which require a unified view.
The IoT can be applied to a wide variety of devices and infrastructures such as Banks, Hospitals, Schools, Public Lighting, Electric Stations or Retails Etc.
From this we can obtain great benefits in the infrastructure such as greater functionality, we can control the devices remotely and in turn receive all their information in real time, which allows us to prevent future events and achieve even greater functionality.
It’s a concept that encompasses the appearance of devices that are connected to the Internet to have greater functionality. This term is often confusing and leading to the thought, for example, that a Smart Coffee Machine is IoT when it is not. To understand the difference, we must consider that connectivity must play a very important role, where devices interact with the environment to nurture and share information with third parties, generating greater overall efficiency.
