CloudGate now certified to run with Microsoft Azure IoT.

Option has joined Microsoft Azure Certified for Internet of Things (IoT), ensuring customers get IoT solutions up and running quickly with hardware and software that has been pre-tested and verified to work with Microsoft Azure IoT services. IoT projects are complex and take a long time to implement. Choosing and connecting the right set of devices, assets or sensors to the cloud can be time-consuming. To jumpstart IoT projects with confidence, customers are looking for certified devices and platforms that are tested for readiness, compatibility and usability with the Microsoft Azure IoT Suite. Option knows how.



Option’s LoRa solution enables the customer to have an end to end LoRa network using one or more CloudGate gateways without the need to connect to an external LoRaWAN server.

Sensor data can be analyzed and reacted to on the CloudGate, forwarded to remote servers and/or exposed using any protocol supported by LuvitRED, for example MODBUS or BACnet.
