Thingsee best practices

This page collects guidelines and best practices on how to use Thingsee IoT devices and services for commercial use.

Thingsee Operations Cloud forwards sensor data as Thingsee Messages to your cloud. It is recommended that your cloud handles the Thingsee Message JSON and extracts the data to a database/storage in such format that fits best to your specific use-case and queries.

All Thingsee devices are anonymous by default. The only identifier visible within the firmware, Thingsee Operations Cloud and Thingsee ToolBox applications, is the product serial number. Thingsee design highly recommends that you build the identity within your application cloud by mapping the serial number (tsmTuid) to your application-specific identifier or location.

Thingsee Field Operations services provides a full-set of functionality so that the identity of the usecases, devices, locations and assets can be build and fully managed within Thingsee Operations Cloud. This is a perfect option for customers who don’t have existing customer identity pool or APIs, or want to move to use full Thingsee Field Operations solution to manage their device/asset fleet.

Do not use tsmGw information within Thingsee messages to identify your installation, location or a customer. If your customers A and B are in close proximity, then it is fully possible that some customer B sensors are routing through customer A gateway and vice versa. Therefore you must build your customer identity and inventory based on the sensor's tsmTuid information only.
