I’ve fallen in love with Losant the IOT Dashboard & Database platform based out of Cincinnati Ohio.
Losant allows you to connect and manage millions of devices. Collect, visualize, and monitor IoT data. Build powerful business logic with an intuitive real-time workflow engine.
I’ve looked at quite a few competing platforms but in my opinion, none of them are as well executed as Losant is.
They have just released a new Photon example project that uses their new Particle integration for easily receiving data sent via a simple Particle Publish events which the cleanest way I have seen it done vs all the other platforms methods.
Big thanks to @BrandonCannaday with Losant for constantly updating the platform and great quick technical support. I would for sure give their free service a spin and see for yourself how different their backend workflow is different than anything else and how their dashboards are customizable in ways that other solution do not allow.
