If you were at the SAMI Developer Meet-up, you’re sure to remember the impressive live demo that Luc and Yujing gave. In a handful of minutes, they connected an IoT device to SAMI on the fly, the IoT device detected a lighter flame, and this triggered a siren that was also connected to SAMI. We’ve been getting a lot of questions about the demo, so here’s a video we made to show you the whole process in detail.
What to take away from this video?
- It’s incredibly easy to connect any IoT device to SAMI, since SAMI is platform-agnostic.
- SAMI can trigger meaningful events using data from various types of devices, since it is a data exchange platform.
The IoT device in the demo consists of an off-the-shelf flame sensor, Arduino UNO and Raspberry Pi. Our tutorial Your first IoT device explains how we built that IoT device, and this blog post extends the IoT device with a combination of flame and temperature sensors.
The event triggering is achieved via SAMI Rules to define the cause (the flame sensor detects a flame) and result (the siren makes a sound). This is a glimpse at how data can come together intuitively and instantly for a device user. We will release Rules before the end of September – stay tuned for that by subscribing to our mailing list below.
In the meantime, we hope you find this demo as inspiring as we do!
