  • Helium for Non-Helium Data

    Reid Draper November 29, 2016

    When we first set out to design the Helium IoT platform, we knew we had to make it easy to connect off-the-shelf hardware to a wireless layer and aggregate that data in an easy to access timeseries database. But our aspirations didn’t end there.

  • Sensor Location with Helium, GeoJSON, and Timeseries

    Mark Phillips November 22, 2016

    Over the course of building Helium, we’ve done a lot of investigation around how to structure our APIs and make them useful for developers in the context of the Internet of Things. In thinking through the various use cases of our platform (including hardware) and speaking to customers, it became apparent that tying location data back to sensors comes up often with a certain class of customers. So we made the Helium API extremely flexible such that it can accommodate location data like GPS coordinates. Not only is it built to store data from Helium-powered sensors, but it can ingest and expose virtually any JSON timeseries data. Recently, a customer of ours built an application that made great use of the the Helium API and location data so we wanted to share one aspect of their application design.

    The Helium API offers a comprehensive set of options to fetch time-series data from your sensors.

  • The Helium API

    Marc Nijdam June 24, 2016

    Helium is a sensing platform that makes it simple to gather data and develop insights about your organization’s physical assets and environment. We offer a rich set of HTTP endpoints to make it easy for developers to manage and create solutions based on their installed Helium Smart Sensors.
