IoT Platform can establish stable connections with a large number of devices. IoT Platform also provides API operations for cloud servers to send remote commands to devices with low latency. The following sections describe typical scenarios of IoT Platform.
Shared power bank
After a shared power bank is connected to IoT Platform, the power information and borrowing status of the power bank is submitted to IoT Platform. If a user scans the code to use the power bank, IoT Platform sends a command to eject the power bank from the base. An enterprise operator can obtain the status of the power bank in real time.
After a broadcast speaker is connected to IoT Platform and a consumer scans the code of the speaker to complete the payment, the payment amount is broadcast to the consumer and merchant in real time.
IoT Platform is widely used in smart home appliances. Take a smart socket as an example. Users can remotely check the usage of the socket and control its switch to prevent overheating of high-power appliances.
You can use the unique-certificate-per-device authentication method to prevent mass attacks when you connect a large number of devices to IoT Platform.
Various sensor devices and communication networks are used to monitor and collect data in agricultural greenhouses in real time. You can connect sensor devices to a gateway by using the RS485 bus, and then connect the devices to IoT Platform by using the gateway. You can view and manage data in IoT Platform.
Smart media screen
After a media screen is connected to IoT Platform, you can monitor the device status and refresh the screen content in real time. This allows you to achieve the smart and fine-grained operations of the media screen. This also helps you reduce costs and improve efficiency.
- You can manage all media screens in IoT Platform and achieve smart operations of new media content.
- You can use ECS instances to remotely deliver media content. This significantly reduces the manual maintenance costs of traditional media screens.
- You can flexibly scale ECS instances based on your business requirements.
