The Helium IoT platform is all about making it easy to bring the physical world online. We’ve gone into a lot of detail about what this means in other blog posts, but one of the ways we do this is by using the Lua scripting language that runs on our Atom Wireless Application Module and makes sensors programmable, allowing users to run business logic such as local data analysis on the sensor as well as easily change sensor sample and transmit rates. While a lot goes into keeping IoT deployments running, such as managing security, upgrades, data storage, and battery life, these are only distractions for users – Lua scripts are about the problems you’re actually solving, and the platform can handle the other details behind the scenes.
