In the rapidly changing digital landscape, devices that can adapt to different situations are king. Yet many low-power, battery-operated devices on the market are highly inflexible, especially when it comes to real-time customisation. Enter Ellenex—our devices offer unparalleled ease of modification without the hassle of frequent firmware upgrades. In this article, we'll walk you through various use cases where Ellenex devices shine and demonstrate the efficiency of connecting them to the Ellenex Platform.
The Challenge with IoT Device Behaviour Management
Traditionally, low-power, battery-operated devices have been engineered with a "deploy-and-forget" mindset. Once deployed, these devices seldom require physical intervention until their batteries run out, which could take years. However, needs change, and what worked yesterday may not be sufficient today.
For instance, imagine needing to alter the sampling interval of a device. Many brands require a cumbersome firmware upgrade to do this, which just makes your iot device management more complicated. But with Ellenex, there’s a better way.
The Ellenex Edge: Adapt as You Go
Adjusting your device settings shouldn’t be a monumental task. With Ellenex devices, you can easily change the sampling interval, ADC gain, or the number of samples per reading, all from the Ellenex Platform.
Have a more advanced requirement like altering the method of reading from averaging the collected samples to calculating the median? No problem. Tick the "Advanced" box on the platform and adapt your device to your current needs. We've engineered our devices to be as adaptable as your ever-changing requirements.
Take It a Step Further: Conditional Sampling
Let's delve into a feature that is often overlooked but extremely useful—Conditional Sampling. Suppose you want your device to sample more frequently when a certain condition is met, like when a tank is nearly full. Ellenex devices can do just that; you can even introduce more complicated logic if necessary.
And guess what? You can make these changes without needing a firmware upgrade. All it takes is sending a simple downlink command to update your device’s behaviour in near real-time.
With Ellenex, gone are the days of fixed, unadaptable solutions. Whether it’s modifying basic settings or implementing more advanced features like conditional sampling, Ellenex devices combined with our robust platform offer the adaptability you’ve been seeking. Because when it comes to your operational needs, one size doesn't fit all.
