What is Ursalink Cloud?
Ursalink Cloud is a comprehensive cloud service providing unparalleled levels of vertical integration with Ursalink Remote I/O series and links vertical, back-end applications to connect, monitor, and control hundreds of remote assets.
3 Methods to Connect Things to Ursalink Cloud
- Method 1: Universal end devices which have DI, DO, AI, RS232 or RS485 interface connect to Urslaink Cellular Remote I/O; Remote I/O connects to Ursalink Cloud.
- Method 2: Universal end devices connect to Urslaink Sensor Node or Ursalink LoRa Remote I/O; Urslaink Sensor Node or Ursalink LoRa Remote I/O connects to Ursalink LoRaWAN Gateway; Ursalink LoRaWAN Gateway connects to Ursalink Cloud.
- Method 3: Ursalink LoRaWAN sensors connect to Ursalink LoRaWAN Gateway; Ursalink LoRaWAN Gateway connects to Ursalink Cloud.
Key features of Ursalink Cloud
Monitor and Control Anywhere, Anytime
Monitor and control end devices 24/7 via the internet. Web, Android and iOS apps are available for providing real-time updates so you can take action fast.
Easy to Set up and Use
Ursalink Cloud can be set up in minutes, and intuitive UI makes managing your devices easy.
Based on Amazon AWS, Ursalink Cloud meets the requirements of the most security-sensitive concern.
Flexible API Available
Ursalink Cloud provides HTTPs and RESTful APIs to transform data collected from end devices into visualization in software applications, for example, report tools or other applications.
Offline Reliability — Preventing Unnecessary Damage
When Ursalink Cloud combined with Ursalink remote I/O, it’s easy to set the trigger commands on Ursalink Cloud. Based on the basic ability of edge computing, Ursalink remote I/O could automatically trigger the output command even when the device is offline, such as automatically turn on the cooling system when the temperature is exceeding the warning line.
Solution Study — Smart Tomato Greenhouse Remote Monitoring and Controlling System
Agricultural IoT has become the inevitable trend of agricultural normalization. IoT applications are useful for monitoring conditions like temperature, moisture, pH, etc., controlling agricultural facilities and triggering the rules for complex conditions according to environmental changes.
We distributed air temperature/humidity sensors and soil moisture/pH sensor inside a small greenhouse, which can collect data from air and soil. A pump and a fan are used for irrigation and cooling. All facilities connect to Ursalink cellular remote I/O for monitoring and control. Ursalink cellular remote I/O will establish a connection between sensors and Ursalink Cloud.
The Benefit of Ursalink Cloud — Monitor, Alert and Control.
Users can remotely view the conditions of the tomato greenhouse and control the facilities via web and App. Users also can receive email and App notification when the conditions exceed the pre-set warning value. Based on the basic ability of edge computing, Ursalink remote I/O could automatically trigger the output command even when the Remote I/O is offline.
For example, once the temperature is higher than 25 degrees Celsius, Ursalink remote I/O will automatically turn on the fan to cool down the greenhouse according to the commands-“If the value of Channel Temperature(1) is above 25, the device will send out an alarm email. Output 1 will be high*.”
*Output 1 will be high: relay output will turn on the fan in the case.
