More and more companies are beginning to deploy Raspberry Pi IoT projects in industrial environments. They can be used in smart building projects and many other sensor data collection applications, which all use Raspberry Pis as the main gateway device.
However, continuous monitoring of clusters of IoT devices is a life-saving task that will ultimately prevent expensive recalls that cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. Even if the product is not running 24/7, knowing whether the power of a device is turned on or off in real time can save a lot of debugging time. The RemoteIoT device management platform enables users to remotely access, monitor and manage Raspberry Pi and IoT devices over Internet.
First, the company can remotely SSH to the Raspberry Pi from anywhere in the world through a web browser without the need for DynDNS, VPN, static IP or port forwarding. They do not need open ports on routers and firewalls and reduce the risk of data leakage in their organization.
Second, the RemoteIoT device platform can provide insights about CPU, memory, and disk utilization and determine when there is a peak activity on these IoT devices. This is a huge advantage when debugging problems with remotely deployed products. When an event triggers a condition, for example, when the usage rate of disk approaches 100%, developers can receive alert notifications. The issue is probably the most popular recall situations when new software is deployed with a bug that results in never deleted log files which grow until the system disk is fully used.
Third, for anyone using Raspberry Pi, the most common problem is the consequence of SD card damage. RemoteIoT provides insights on SD card manufacturing date, total data write and error count, and provides remaining life to determine when the SD card needs to be replaced.
Finally, the RemoteIoT device platform allows companies to upload their application to all devices in the web-based management console. Even if companies have millions of devices, they can easily update the application across all devices with a single click.
The RemoteIoT device management platform has built-in many monitoring tools that can be used immediately, which enables users to seamlessly expand their IoT network and solutions with minimal cost and complexity.
