Thingsee IoT platform includes battery-powered wireless sensors with mesh and BLE connectivity, gateways for edge and cloud installations with managed SIM subscriptions. The platform comes with a Thingsee Operations Cloud and Edge with native Windows, macOS, Android and iOS applications for device management and field operations for installation, maintenance, diagnostics, and recovery.

The platform is delivered as a stand-alone AWS serverless, self-hostable distribution where security is built in during the manufacturing process. The platform integrates to a client system using any service-to-service method for streaming IoT-data to a client cloud service. Thingsee Services API is available for more in-depth integration with add-on services like asset-tracking.

Thingsee IoT as a Service

Thingsee IoT platform architecture supports different layers of deliverables in the *aaS-World.

  • Thingsee Hardware-as-a-Service includes all standard Thingsee gateways (with fully managed connectivity) and Thingsee wireless sensors. In addition, new sensor products can be tailored per customer needs.
  • Thingsee Software-as-a-Service includes all cloud services, mobile applications and desktop tools that are required for device life-cycle operations, manufacturing and field services.
  • Thingsee (IoT)-Data-as-a-Service is the model where we will take care of everything related to devices and data collection, and all you need to do is to receive the data and build your service.

Thingsee is a data collection platform that makes an Internet of Things (IoT) service development, pilots, and commercial operations fast and straightforward with ready-made tools and services for easy scaling and fast deployments.

Thingsee platform includes sensors, gateways, device-management services, and administrative tools with supporting mobile applications so that everyday operations with the things are seamless and automated; starting from the manufacturing and logistics services. Thingsee minimizes the maintenance effort and the costs of running a pool of IoT sensors devices and their gateways.

Thingsee is not an end-user application cloud as its sole purpose is to focus on the things and their development, manufacturing, management, and operations enabling a customer to focus on the application cloud and the actual service development. In its simplest form, a customer sees the things only as incoming JSON data.

Thingsee is a highly integrated end-to-end solution optimized to work with Thingsee-compatible devices. There are options for 3rd party device and service integration in cases where a hybrid solution is required for combining different products and hardware platforms. The Thingsee hardware portfolio is expanding rapidly with new products to fulfil the ever-growing demand for different use-cases, as enterprises are digitalizing their operations. The platform is designed so that the customization of any layer is possible, making the platform flexible and adaptable to different kinds of technical requirements and business needs.

Thingsee IoT software platform supports both rapid prototype development and large-scale commercial installations. The Thingsee Operations Cloud and applications ensure that cloud services and applications are available for daily administration and field operation tasks. These tools come as a standard in every Thingsee Operations Profile, and they can be used as a basis to further customize the cloud and application for specific field operation processes and needs.

Administration or field operation services are typically tailored to customer needs. Also, device installation and maintenance operations are adjusted according to customer business models, available IT personnel and business focus areas.
