At the Amazon Summit the other week they annouced their Internet of Things Services that look at the capturing of data from devices, processing of that data against rules, capture and storage, and the triggering of actions back to devices.

It would be interesting to see if customers could take a larger responsibility for thier own footprint using SEGMeter technologies that integration with these services.

SEG has been doing stuff like this for ages, and is the whole Control application - which has been in alpha for some time now.

It's a great feature that allows inputs from devices and other things to run through decision trees and issue commands back to the device to do things like turn stuff on or off, adjust set points and a host of other things.

It's been tricky to make work robustly, but it's there and has been baked in from the start.

This is something on the roadmap after the paid service transition has completed.

An interesting point on the Amazong IoT platform...

$5 per month per million messages.

Consider a 100 stream SEG setup, sending data every 10 seconds.  Assiming that each data point is a "message" in Amazon speak that is:

10 seconds, gives 6 messages per minute, 360 per hour, 8640 per day. 

At 100 streams, 864,000 messages per day.

26,784,000 messages per month, ~$115 per month - with no visualisation, analytics or any of the other magic in SEG to make sense of it, and who knows what work is required to set it all up?

Just some random thoughts,
