Upstream Internet of Things

Last week we installed our very own tropical aquarium in the office and this week we chose our first group of fish!

To begin with we've picked two groups of platies, orange and black with silver spots, but in the near future we intend to add to the aquarium.

As big proponents of the Internet of Things, and because our Product Director, Ken Miller, loves his gadgets, we're going to be monitoring the health of the fish.

Using an in-tank sensor system, we'll be monitoring the temperature, pH of the water, and the lighting, to make sure the fish have the perfect environment. We will then input this data into the dashboard and create a series of charts to monitor all aspects of the aquarium over time.

The sensor can also send real-time alerts via email or SMS, making it a proactive device.
