Announcing the Arduino IoT Cloud Public Beta

Arduino TeamFebruary 6th, 2019

In our pursuit to democratize Internet of Things development, today we are excited to announce the Arduino IoT Cloud!

The Arduino IoT Cloud is an easy to use Internet of Things application platform. It makes it very simple for anyone to develop and manage IoT applications – freeing them to focus on solving real problems in their business or in everyday life.

With the launch of the Arduino IoT cloud, Arduino now provides its millions of users a complete end-to-end approach to IoT that includes hardware, firmware, cloud services, and knowledge. I am very pleased to launch the public beta release of the Arduino IoT Cloud with automatic dashboard generation, Webhooks support, and full TLS secure transport.

— Luca Cipriani, Arduino CIO

Convenience and flexibility are key considerations for the Arduino IoT Cloud. Arduino boards usually require you to program them by entering code by way of a sketch — now the Arduino IoT Cloud can do this for you. It will quickly and automatically generate a sketch when setting up a new thing, thus enabling a developer to go from unboxing their board to a working device within five minutes. The Arduino IoT Cloud also provides other methods of interaction, including HTTP REST API, MQTT, Command-Line Tools, Javascript, and Websockets.

Arduino now offers a complete platform with the MKR family providing a streamlined way to create local IoT nodes and edge devices using a range of connectivity options and compatibility with third-party hardware, gateway, and cloud systems. Whilst the Arduino IoT Cloud allows users to manage, configure and connect not only Arduino hardware but the vast majority of Linux-based devices – truly democratizing IoT development.
