Potado is a top IoT Development Company In Singapore that develops applications for smart devices and connected hardware. By connecting electronic devices to the internet, adding sensors, or hardware we can control them through the web. Our team believes in bringing the physical and digital worlds together by making everyday devices smarter. This includes everything from smart kitchen appliances, home electronics, medical devices, agricultural technology, and much more.
The IoT is a network of physical objects that are embedded with sensors, software and other technologies for the purpose connecting data from these devices over the internet. Experts estimate there will be 10 billion connected things by 2020 and 22 billions by 2025! This growth shows just how important the industry is. A Typical IoT system has 3 components:
This is a device. It can be anything from a camera, medical equipment, speakers, appliance, and more. This device has been programmed to perform specific tasks (Press a button and do that). The device then collects data from how it is used, as well as the environment through any sensors it might have and passed the data through the internet to the IoT application.
An IoT application is a program that collects commands and data from the actual device. The data is then stored in a database in the cloud where functions can be run. AI and machine learning models are also integrated here to provide useful insights which are then returned to the device allowing it to perform smarter actions from learning about its function, user, and environment.
This is a mobile or web application that allows you to control the device through commands. This includes activation, function, resetting, and settings. It can be used to control a single device or multiple devices at once if they are linked to your account.
When we develop IoT apps, we believe in following a process that allows us to efficiently develop applications. These are the steps we follow.
During the first stage we will work with you to understand exactly how the hardware works and what problem it solves. We need to understand if the connectivity will be Wifi, Ethernet, Bluetooth, or others. We need to understand if hardware and sensors will be built with Arduino, iBeacons, Raspberry Pi, Miniature Boards, or others. And we also need to know which protocols and standards the app will use. Will it be HTTP/HTTPS, TCP, TCP, or others. By understanding this we can best understand how we will approach the development of the application. We will plot down all the features needed, decide on the platforms, and the technologies best suited for the project.
We will then draw up wireframes of the application that will allow us to present the initial scope and design with you. Once we have both agreed on the drawings, we will start working on the actual UI/UX designs. Here we will implement designs that are best suited for each device and allows the best user experience. But with IoT applications backend design is just as important as the frontend and out software architects will design the cloud architecture for the project to ensure a strong foundation is built.
Once we have the planning and designs done, our developers will start building the IoT application for mobile, web, desktop, or wearable devices. They will work with out backend developers who will develop the cloud functions that will connect the device to the application and then integrate the two.
We will the begin beta testing internally and with your team to ensure that everything runs smoothly. During this stage we will iterate and improve the application as needed until we are satisfied.
Once the application is ready for launch, we will help you deploy the application as needed. The backend is usually hosted on Google Cloud, Amazon AWS, or Microsoft Azure. The frontend application will the be uploaded to the web or push to the iOS and Android app stores.
Building an IoT app requires experience and expertise, which is why you need a team that has built applications for the biggest companies in Singapore. Our IoT developers can build anything from simple home automation to more complex industrial applications so your company will be able get on board with its new strategy right away! This is what a few of your clients have had to say about us:
"We built a smart device for testing health indicators of elderly people and wanted to connect it to a mobile application for our users convenience. We worked with Potado because of how well they are able to combine great design and user experience with strong engineering. The app included user profiles, health reports and data, as well as information on how they can improve their health at home and rewards for seeing improvements in their data readings."
"We worked with Potado to develop an IoT application for our agritech startup. We grow vegetables indoors using vertical farming and wanted to make our hardware more intelligent by recording data and then using AI to apply the best solution. The application was cloud based and linked to the devices over HTTPS and we also has web dashboard and mobile application to observe the results and happenings."
