iBeacon as a Simple IoT Devices

Introduced by Apple on the 2013, Apple iBeacon is working with Bluetooth LE (Low Energy) or Bluetooth version 4. On the day it was launched, iBeacon was supposed to be one of huge leap in Internet of Things. Even there are many IoT Platform is adding feature with beacon in order to ease the management service.

iBeacon can also be used with an application as an indoor positioning system, which helps smartphones determine their approximate location or context. With the help of an iBeacon, a smartphone’s software can approximately find its relative location to an iBeacon in a store. Brick and mortar retail stores use the beacons for mobile commerce, offering customers special deals through mobile marketing, and can enable mobile payments through point of sale systems.

With growing technology, Internet of Things has became one of daily needs. We can find many IoT devices we can use and feel the impact in daily basis such as fitness tracker, thermostat, or smartwatch. Those things were just the beginning. We can see more tech and IoT stuff even in shoes that can tied up themselves.

High demand of Internet of Things Market causes startup and enterprise add Internet of Things solution to their solution. As for example is using beacon as an asset management and visitor tracking. While some companies are using name tag and ID card, beacon can be a simple way to track visitors and it doesn’t even spend lot of cost. The battery last up to 2 years and if it doesn’t need specific reader which is mostly expensive as in RFID.

Pendakian Gunung Butak

Pendakian Gunung Butak
Bagi penggemar pendaki gunung, tiada salahnya mencoba menikmati pemandangan pendakian Gunung Butak. Sebuah Gunung yang merupakan sambungan dari gugusan Pegunungan Putri Tidur di bagian kepala yang punya ketinggian 2868 meter di atas permukaan laut.

Ada empat jalur pendakian untuk menuju ke kepala Gunung Putri Tidur ini. Yaitu jalur pendakian Gunung Butak via Panderman di Batu, jalur Sirah Kencong (Blitar), jalur Princi (Dau), dan jalur Gunung Kawi (Kepanjen). Masing-masing jalur punya pemandangan yang berbeda-beda dan secara subyektif jalur Sirah Kencong dianggap yang paling indah pemandangannya. Tetapi jalur Princi adalah yang paling cepat meski lumayan penuh tanjakan.

Jalur pendakian melalui Princi bisa dilalui dengan cara menuju Gading Kulon, Princi, Dau. Jalur ini sedikit berbeda dengan Panderman atau Sirah Kencong yang menyediakan perizinan untuk berangkat. Tetapi jika Anda kesana menggunakan sepeda motor, anda bisa menitipkannya ke sebuah rumah yang bercat biru yang sehari-hari berjualan tahu campur. Dari sana nantinya perjalanan dilanjutkan dengan jalan kaki di jalanan yang lumayan landai dengan topologi beraspal tipis.

Basic Service in IoT Platform Providers

Basic Service in IoT Platform Providers

Many people developing IoT for living. It is getting popular and people want to use IoT Platform to ease their process in building IoT system. The Internet of Things has been hype for couple of years since it began to be recommended by Kevin Ashton on 1999 and started popular through Auto-ID centre in MIT. At this moment, we can see many people is using Internet of Things. Not only in daily life but it begins a university project for their student.

Basically, Internet of Things platform has similar features and basic needs as any other platform to build IoT devices. Some IoT platform providers basic service of a platform. But the main use of IoT Platform is to ease developer/maker to build solution faster by using a platform (IaaS, PaaS, or BaaS) to get lower cost infrastructure.

IoT Platform has became one of regular tools. Most developers will use IoT Platform to develop their product and solution also help them scale up globally. IoT Platform is simply helping engineers to build their Internet of Things project faster and also manage them regularly. This includes building engagement with their user.

Cloud Hosting for Startup

Cloud Hosting for Startup

Mobile App Hosting or Mobile Cloud Computing is exist because these days there are many developers building Mobile Application. With various implementation and high market, cloud hosting becomes solution for developers to build their mobile apps.

One of the benefits of mobile app hosting is that you can utilize the service according to your requirement and pay only for what you use. It is considered as an extension of clustered hosting which is a system in which websites are hosted on multiple servers. It is important for developers to choose cloud hosting providers.

Public cloud model is another example of cloud hosting that is quite relevant for business owners. This refers to the process of hosting websites on virtual servers that draw resources from a common source. This source is also used for other virtual servers that are publicly available. There are certain security measures in public clouds. This ensures the data is absolutely secure and kept private. It also ensures that the data will be sufficient for most of the website installations.

It is important for Mobile Developers to build their apps in easy and fast way to follow the demand. Choosing the right cloud hosting can be the best way to start building the mobile application.

Innovate with Tizen Backend as a Service

Innovate with Tizen Backend as a Service

Tizen is an OS (operating system) based on the Linux kernel and the GNU C Library implementing the Linux API. Tizen OS works on a wide range of devices such as smartphones, smartwatches, Blu-ray players, printers, tablets, in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) devices, smart cameras, smart TVs, PCs, and smart home appliances.

The devices that are able to work with Tizen mostly are devices that we can see daily. This makes Tizen is competitive enough following their competitors such as Android and iOS and becomes “eye catch” for developers to build in Tizen Mobile Backend as a Service.

Apparently, Tizen itself has provided access for developers to build application and launch it as soon as possible. Seeing how Tizen grows, there are big chances for developers to build their own apps. Tizen application developers have two options, to develop native applications or web applications. Native applications can be created using programming languages C / C ++ while Tizen web applications is using HTML5 and JavaScript.

Important Features of IoT Platform

Important Features of IoT Platform

With various implementation of Internet of Things, IoT developers are competing to build their own IoT Devices. With a huge market, there are more and more devices launched each year. How developers compete with other developers are by using IoT Platform to make their development process faster.


It is because IoT Platform provides various features such as:

Real Time Storage Data – Internet of Things technology needs integration with data storage (Cloud Storage), where data storage from sensor or data from other devices need a real time data storage. It is because IoT’s main focus is data streaming.

IoT Protocol Connection – Protocol Internet of Things from every device might be different. This makes developer must do many changes and data conversions.

Data Processing – Internet of Things is focused on faster data processing to make a real time data insight.

Analytic’s – Statistic processing and data management by various data connections and hardwares have to make a result about accurate data analytic.

These basic features in IoT Platform can be useful for developers to connect and manage the device. With the features, developers also able to manage their user and checking the device performance.
