Here are the high level steps you need to take to start using Exosite:
Accounts on Exosite Portals are free to set up and start using, look for the Sign Up button in the upper right hand corner of the the Exosite website. Once an account has been created, users can begin to send data to Exosite’s One Platform and interact with this data and the device via their Portal. Each new account has some public data already enabled for those that don’t have the ability to currently send data. More information on Exosite Portals can be found here.
Any device that has an internet connection can technically send data to the Exosite One Platform. This could be a PC, a mobile phone with a data plan, a machine, a server application, and even a sensor network that has a gateway to convert the local communication data to the internet.
Check out the connecting devices page for more information.
Example code and applications are provided for adding support to devices that are not already capable of communicating with Exosite’s platform. The Developer area is the best place to get started, it has documentation to the Exosite API and sample code tutorials.
Devices decide what data it wants to send, creating a data source and sending the data to Exosite as often as required for the given application needs. Devices can also read data from the Exosite One Platform, allowing bi-directional communication. As Exosite receives new data on a data source, it puts a time stamp on it and the data is available to act on or view in each user’s Portal.
An Exosite Portal allows a user to interact with devices and data sources. Portals include dashboard views and management of devices, data sources, event/alerts, and user access. Portals User Manual
