At the request of our clients, we’ve created a micro-application that is able to download data from their specific products and automatically embeds them into live broadcasts. Another example is integration with IoT devices from the Hardwario company. The devices process data from a whole range of environmental sensors, making it possible to implement many IoT projects. Hardwario operates its own cloud, which makes it possible to access the measured values. That’s why it seemed to us like an interesting idea to directly display the data from these great sensors dynamically in the camera image, allowing camera owners to better orient themselves.
Thanks to its temperature range and durability against dust and water, the IoT Hub CHESTER is used in demanding outdoor projects in the field of agriculture, forestry, water management, and industry. The device communicates via LPWAN technologies such as NB-IoT or LoRaWAN even in places where a normal Internet connection is not available and works on batteries for several years.
“In this case, CamStreamer apps provide an overview of values directly in the video, which are important for specific projects, primarily in agriculture, forestry, water management, etc.,” Filip Hanek, Product Manager of CamStreamer explains. Thus, it can help in solutions from the Hardwario company (monitoring air quality in the Liberec Zoo, controlling undesirable temperatures and humidity as stress prevention for the animals; monitoring heat and humidity in cable boxes; in British forests, etc.) This integration will also be handy for situations where the camera covers an extensive area in which Chester IoT HUB devices collect data in various sites (e.g. data on ground soil moisture) and the camera owner wants to have data directly in the image for better orientation.
