Is all Particle software open source?

We want to scale up the asset tracker.
Are all its software components, including the Particle cloud and all Electron firmware available open source?

Most software is. There are parts they use from other companies that are under a NDA which are included in a compiled form (parts of WICED). The cloud itself is proprietary, but there’s an open-source slimmed down version available. Cloud access is included for life, so if that was a concern, don’t worry :wink:

Hi @douglaskbell,

Something we strive for at Particle is to be a company you can rely on to help you scale a product out to production! We open source basic technology, and some critical components, and we license advanced technology (like our high-performance / high-availability cloud). Please feel free to ping us at if you have questions about scaling. :slight_smile:
