From here few windows service on Azure pull the data and store it into an Azure SQL Database.</P><P>Here is my observation with respect to this architecture:</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Problems: 1 TB limit in Azure SQL. With higher tier it can go to 4 TB but that's the max. So it does not appear to be infinitely scalable plus with size, the query issues could be a problem. Columnstore index and partitioning seem to be options but size limitation and DTUs is a deal breaker.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Problem-2- IOT data and SQL Database(downstream storage) seem to be tightly coupled. If some customer wants to extract few months of data or even more with millions of rows, DB will get busy and possibly throttle other customers due to DTU exhaustion.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>I would like to have some ideas on possibly scaling this further. SQL DB is great and with JSON support it is awesome but a it is not horizontally scalable solution.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Here is what I am thinking:</P><P>1) All the messages should be consumed from FTP by Azure IOT hub by some means.</P><P>2) From the central hub, I want to push all messages to Azure Blob Storage in 128 MB files for later analysis at cheap cost.</P><P>3) At the same time,&nbsp; I would like all messages to go to IOT hub and from there to Azure CosmosDB(for long term storage)\Azure SQL DB(Long term but not sure due to size restriction).</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>I am keeping data in blob storage because if client wants or hires a Machine learning team to create some models, I would prefer them to pull data from Blob storage rather than hitting my DB.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Kindly suggest few ideas on this.

One of the sectors that it is helping the most is the hotel sector. It is helping the hotel owners and the operators by increasing guest satisfaction, and at the same time meeting their business needs and sustainability goals.&nbsp;</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>In the article below, we will discuss in-depth how the <A href="#" target="_self"><STRONG>Internet of Things</STRONG></A> (IoT) is empowering hotel brands to curate stronger relationships with their guests when the guests arrive at a pre-personalized experience.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><H2>1. When all of it comes together</H2><P>&nbsp;</P><P>For a lot of hotel brands, they focus majorly on millennials, where Gen-Z is increasing in importance. A report mentioned how 54% of parents agreed that their children have some influence over their travel planning and for gen-z, travel is all about the experience. A crucial part of the experience is convenience, connectivity, and control. It is fairly obvious that Gen-Z and millennials are expecting to take full advantage of IoT-enables amenities.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Iot-based connectivity has begun to pervade almost every industry and infrastructure. Not just industries but they have also enhanced various aspects of our lifestyle with the help of mobile devices and apps. The more connection it enables, the more power will be unleashed in terms of visibility, convenience, and control.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>This is why hotels are a perfect example, their entire infrastructure, starting from electrical <A href="#" target="_self"><STRONG>power distribution</STRONG></A> to HVAC, to security, all of it is progressively becoming more and more connected. The smart devices that are present across each building system share data with centralized applications, which enables advanced capabilities for hotel management, staff, and guests.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>With the help of the newest room controllers, you can easily manage HVAC in each guest room on the basis of room occupancy. Not just that, they also connect to all other controllable features of the room, which includes lighting and curtains, and guest-facing features such as bedside panels and tablets.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Moreover, hotel software applications are now converging, and with the help of it the newest guest room management systems can be smoothly integrated with <A href="#" target="_self"><STRONG>power management</STRONG></A>, building management, property management, and door lock systems.&nbsp;</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>All of these apps are now hosted in the cloud, enabling access by personnel across teams, wherever they are. Now with the help of these advances, you can enjoy new and improved levels of functionality and control that are enhancing the guest experience in various ways.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><H2>2. A Personalized Stay, Right from Check-In</H2><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Connectivity plays a crucial role in personalizations, and it begins at check-in. The hotel staff can remotely prepare room settings while your guests are still at the front desk. If you have a loyal base of customers, then you already know their preferences and automatically activate them upon check-in, even if that's done with the help of a mobile device.&nbsp;</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>All thanks to integration with door lock systems, your guests can use their own device for room access with the help of the hotel's loyalty app. You can even personalize things by sending your customers a welcome message that can be sent to be displayed in the room, in the guest's own language.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><H2><STRONG>Welcome to Your Connectivity Hub</STRONG></H2><P>&nbsp;</P><P>The next step in this whole process is, the guests are greeted with their preferred room temperature, and their native language on in-room devices, so that they feel at home, no matter where they are from.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>You can adapt an array of engaging options to improve your interactions with your guests. Some things being IoT-enabled bedside panels, tablet, the room's Tv, or their own smart device can be used to provide convenient control over almost every aspect of their comfort and entertainment. Your customers can personalize their rooms by adjusting temperature, controlling the curtains, dimming lights, or even by selecting "room scenes" to create the perfect setting according to their mood.</P><H2>4. Need something? Just Say It</H2><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Some solutions are just a command away, as some solutions may offer integration with voice control options. For instance, Marriott international started taking the help of Amazon Alexa in the field of hospitality to select hotels (their franchise). This is giving guests a choice to use voice commands to control the room according to their needs. Another option that hoteliers can explore is chatbots, it will give the guests the ability to make a request to the front desk using their mobile devices, no matter where they are.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><H2><STRONG>5. A Closer Connection with Needs … and Values</STRONG></H2><P>&nbsp;</P><P>With the help of this evolution in the realm of hotel connectivity, it will also keep the staff aware of a guest's needs. The people working in the guest room management system will immediately inform the hotel personnel when any request comes in, from do-not-disturb to maid service, or when a maintenance issue arises—such as a low battery status on the door lock.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>However, with the help of deep integration between power management, <A href="#" target="_self"><STRONG>building management</STRONG></A>, and guest room management systems, the hotel's maintenance team, will always be on their feet and aware of the issue and how to solve them.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P><STRONG>Conclusion</STRONG></P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>For the customers who are worried about sustainability, with the help of <A href="#" target="_self"><STRONG>IoT</STRONG></A> connectivity offers the opportunity to collaborate with the hotel on energy efficiency goals and be awarded for the same. The integration of power, building, and guest room management systems will allow your customer's room energy usage to be automatically tracked and be reported during their stay, with positive results converted to loyalty program points.</P> Thu, 16 Apr 2020 06:59:00 GMT erricravi 2020-04-16T06:59:00Z Vision AI Dev KIt back on the IoT Show with Mahesh showing how to deploy models <P><SPAN>In this new episode, Mahesh is back to show us how you can train and deploy new AI models on the device in a matter of minutes.</SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><IFRAME src="" width="960" height="540" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" title="Deploying Models with Vision AI DevKit - Microsoft Channel 9 Video"></IFRAME></P> Mon, 13 Apr 2020 22:01:50 GMT jkubicka 2020-04-13T22:01:50Z Training an AI model with the MXChip IoT devkit …in less than 10 minutes! <P>Last week I posted the first blog post of a new series around TinyML and AIoT (Artificial Intelligence of Things).

However, with today’s hardware technology trends and increased software capabilities, the scope and functionality of newer innovations are enhancing, making them a much more value-adding contributor to a machine or process throughout its lifecycle, right from design to maintenance and upgrade.</SPAN></P><P>&nbsp;</P><P><SPAN>A prominent example of one of these technologies which is revolutionising building automation and <A href="#" target="_self">building management systems</A> is </SPAN><A href="#" target="_self"><STRONG>HMI </STRONG></A><SPAN>(Human Machine Interface). A Human-Machine Interface (HMI) can be described as a user interface or dashboard that efficiently links a person to a machine, system, or device. While the term can technically be referred to for any screen that allows a user to communicate with a device, </SPAN>HMI software<SPAN> is most ordinarily used in the context of an</SPAN><A href="#" target="_self"><STRONG> industrial automation</STRONG></A><SPAN> process or when referring to building management. Here are the benefits of exploring an HMI today -&nbsp;</SPAN></P><P>&nbsp;</P><P><STRONG>Increases Productivity&nbsp;</STRONG></P><P>&nbsp;</P><P><SPAN>It goes without saying that HMIs will also increase the productivity &amp; efficiency of human resources. Using a Human Machine Interface can automate tasks and intricate functions that were previously carried out manually by a dedicated workforce. Rather than putting workers under a physical burden by making them lift or handle objects by hand, employers can use HMI software to automate these exhaustive functions. Subsequently, this also helps free up labour resources, enabling these workers/staff who regulate building management systems to focus their energy on other responsibilities.</SPAN></P><P>&nbsp;</P><P><STRONG>Connectivity</STRONG></P><P>&nbsp;</P><P><SPAN>In this age of smart buildings and smart automation, phenomena like the Internet of Things and Industrial Internet of Things are playing meaningful roles in launching innovation-driven technologies. HMI’s can be linked to the internet to promote new forms of automation and modernisation in relation to building management. HMI’s can also connect to Programmable Logic Controllers </SPAN><STRONG>(<A href="#" target="_self">PLC</A>)</STRONG><SPAN>- heavy-duty appliances that are uniquely designed for manufacturing and industrial purposes. They offer effective control and interactions between humans and machines. Human Machine Interfaces can connect a vast array of devices and machines together, intensifying their ability to communicate while adding additional functionality to their functionality and processes.</SPAN></P><P>&nbsp;</P><P><STRONG>Data Analytics</STRONG></P><P>&nbsp;</P><P><SPAN>Not only does an HMI perform the task of actively presenting critical and information data, but it can also store &amp; record it which enables future analysis and interpretation. This is particularly valuable in the case of analysing energy usage, appliance maintenance, and unforeseen defaults. Critical data on energy helps save critical resources and encourages an eco-friendly environment in the building.&nbsp;</SPAN></P><P>&nbsp;</P><P><STRONG>Ease of Use</STRONG></P><P>&nbsp;</P><P><SPAN>HMI Displays promote convenience since these machines can be accessed with relative ease. It doesn’t need weeks or months of training and can be easily operated with some guidelines and procedures. Also, it can also be concluded that there definitely a comforting feeling associated with the use of HMIs. Workers experience more joy and job satisfaction when using HMIs - it creates a positive environment for staff.&nbsp;</SPAN></P><P>&nbsp;</P><P><SPAN>HMI is fundamentally a part of the broader scope of </SPAN><A href="#" target="_self"><STRONG>SCADA</STRONG></A><SPAN>. To sum up, the main goal of an HMI is to display a graphical interface of any functioning machinery that is in operation and sees to it that the machine language is shown in such a manner that can help the workforce to understand the functions being carried out by the machinery.&nbsp; HMI’s help drive the applicability of </SPAN><A href="#" target="_self"><STRONG>SCADA systems</STRONG></A><SPAN> across various industrial sectors. #SchneiderElectric is a big player in this field- having established itself as a leading provider in the realms of energy distribution and power management - ensuring that #LifeIsOn.</SPAN></P> Mon, 16 Mar 2020 06:19:34 GMT erricravi 2020-03-16T06:19:34Z dotnet/io Sampler app on Github <P>Just published a .Net Core app on GitHub that implements several of the dotnet/io functions in a menu driven manner.

Azure IoT Hub, with Azure device twin settings, provides a great way of doing this.&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>At //Build 2019, Jim Bennett, Cloud Advocate at Microsoft, presented the session, <STRONG>Prototyping an internet connected smart home device with Azure IoT Hub</STRONG>.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><SPAN>In this session he looked at how to create a prototype interconnected fan unit using an IoT prototyping board. This board will connect to Azure to upload sensor data, and connect to a fan turning it on if the temperature is above a threshold. The threshold will then be made configurable using Azure device twin, allowing it to be easily controlled from a cloud-connected mobile app via Azure Functions. The principles shown can be applied to a production system running on appropriate custom hardware. </SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Watch the full video here - <A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Build Session THR2020</A></P> Tue, 14 May 2019 00:20:27 GMT John Spear 2019-05-14T00:20:27Z Build 2019: IoT Plug and Play <P>Among the many announcements occurring at //Build 2019 this month, one stands out for IoT device makers: <STRONG>IoT Plug and Play</STRONG>.&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><SPAN>IoT Plug and Play offers a new, open modeling language for connecting IoT devices seamlessly to the cloud, without having to write a single line of embedded code.&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>At the center of IoT Plug and Play is a schema describing device capabilities, the “Device Capability Model” JSON-LD document.
