Securely send from Edge…

Helium’s radio technology allows for long-range, low-power communication with hardware-based security, meaning zero-configuration and authenticated data transport. Helium provides 4–250kbit/sec data rates for thousands of devices, in noisy environments, by switching between its two frequency bands on the fly. Helium can be easily set up to send data in just a few lines of code.

…To any Cloud Service

Using Helium’s Data Channels, your device data can be routed directy to any compatible cloud platform, such as AWS or Azure, or via MQTT and HTTP. Helium Dashboard allows you to monitor and control data usage as well as manage device settings and tags.

1

Security & Authentication

Helium security keys live in a vault and are based on a hardware root of trust. Each device has its own security key securely burned into the hardware at manufacturing time. Keys are managed and updated periodically, ensuring device authentication.

2

Stack Compatibility

Regardless of how you plan to build your connected device, Helium has got you covered. With support for all popular microcontrollers as well as major cloud platform services, Helium makes it easy to add secure, cost-effective wireless communication to your stack.

3

Cost-Effective Deployments

Helium’s network is an extremely easy and cost-efficient way to provide device coverage. Thousands of devices can associate with a Helium Element Access Point over miles of distance. What’s more, there is no data cost for data backhauling.

4

Long-Range, Low Power

The Helium Atom Module is extremely power efficient, meaning short wake and association times and years of battery life. The module’s dual band radio is logic-controlled and so actively switches channels and bands to maintain a good connection without wasting your device’s power reserves.

5

Device Dashboard

Helium Dashboard is a devce management, billing and configuration tool wrapped up in one. Device packets can be securely routed via Data Channels to any popular Cloud Service with data usage and signal strength constantly monitored.

6

Zero Configuration

Every Atom module is preflashed with its own set of physical security keys at manufacturing, meaning Helium’s router is able to authenticate with certainty that the device is legitimate and can be activated without any software pairing.

This is just the beginning.
