Pachube is an open source platform enabling developers to connect sensor data to the Web and to build their own applications on it.
Pachube is a data brokerage platform for the internet of things, managing millions of datapoints per day from thousands of individuals, organisations & companies around the world. It enables you to store, share & discover realtime sensor, energy and environment data from objects, devices & buildings around the world.
Capabilities[edit | edit source]
- Manage realtime sensor & environment data:
Pachube is a data brokerage platform for the internet of things, managing millions of datapoints per day from thousands of individuals, organisations & companies around the world. Convenient, secure & economical, Pachube stores, converts & serves data in multiple data formats, which makes it interoperable with both established web protocols & existing construction industry standards. All feeds include contextual metadata (timestamps, geolocation, units, tags) that actually make datastreams valuable.
- Graph, monitor & control remote environments:
Embed realtime graphs & widgets in your own website. Analyse & process historical data pulled from any public Pachube feed. Send realtime alerts from any datastream to control your own scripts, devices & environments. Out-of-the-box configurable tools include a zoomable graph, a mapping/tracking widget, an augmented reality viewer, SMS alerts & apps for various smartphones. As soon as something is plugged into Pachube, you're ready to monitor & control it.
- Build mobile & web apps that create value:
With a rapid development cycle & dozens of code examples & libraries, Pachube's simple yet sophisticated 'physical-to-virtual' API makes it quick & easy to build applications that add value to networked objects & environments. That's because real value-creation comes from the applications that are built on top of sensor systems. Pachube handles the scalability & high-availability required for complex data management, so that you are empowered to develop applications that make decision-making more sophisticated.
- Share data & create communities:
Pachube is built to encourage open ecosystems. Connect electricity meters, weather stations, building management systems, air quality monitors, biosensors, geiger counters — build communities around devices & data collection. While privacy options will soon be available, Pachube's unique openness promotes growth: most hardware & software libraries & real world applications are being created by its community!
