IoT Connectivity for Solar Conversion Devices

Project Details

A leading solar services provider required an IoT solution that could support in excess of 100,000 distributed devices. We leveraged Microsoft’s IoT suite and Azure cloud services to ensure scalability, simplify infrastructure requirements, and manage costs.

The system includes a large number of domestic installations, each including peripheral devices and embedded IoT nodes. IoT data packages are processed by the IoT hub and then committed to cloud table storage. Web and mobile applications were developed with UX design principles to enable users to get the most out of their investment.

The project provides users much more powerful and elegant ways to interact with their solar installations. Connecting distributed devices to the cloud enables better end-user engagement as well as access to “big data” and visualisations that can improve the customer experience and drive better business decisions.


Added Value and Benefits

Improved ability to remotely manage deployment, configuration, and update of devices.

Better end-user engagement – real-time access to their devices from anywhere via mobile apps.

The capture of sensor data from thousands of nodes enables the application of cloud-based analytics and evidence-based business decision making.
