Azure Stream Analytics is Microsoft’s PaaS (platform-as-a-service) event-processing engine that allows you to analyze and process large volumes of streaming data from multiple incoming sources. You can configure different input sources including IoT devices, sensors or business applications for data ingestion. Delivery outputs can also be configured to send the processed data to those destinations for performing actions or further analytics.Continue reading “Using Azure Stream Analytics with IoT Devices”
The Azure IoT Hub service provides the ability for bi-directional communication with your devices. You can use Azure IoT Hub to send messages from your devices to your IoT cloud solutions, as well as send commands from your IoT cloud solutions to your devices. This article will describe the different types of communications possible with Azure IoT Hub and how you can use them.Continue reading “Azure IoT Hub Messaging”
Azure IoT Central is Microsoft’s SaaS (software-as-a-service) offering that allows you to quickly provision an IoT solution. This service reduces the burden and cost of developing, managing and maintaining enterprise-level IoT solutions, allowing you to focus more on your IoT data and how it can transform your business. I will be going through the steps to create an Azure IoT Central application and how easy it is to create and maintain an IoT solution.Continue reading “Azure IoT Central”
IoT solutions can be complex, especially if you have multiple devices that you need to send to more than one destination in your cloud solution. Azure IoT Hub provides the capability to send your device data to multiple destinations through message routing. This article will describe the available options with message routing and how they are used.

Microsoft provides the Azure IoT Hub service to assist in implementing Internet of Things (IoT) solutions. This fully managed Azure service enables reliable and secure bidirectional communication between your IoT devices and a back-end solution hosted in Azure. I am going to review the steps to create an IoT hub in Azure, along with how to register a device and configure tier and scaling options.Continue reading “Creating and Configuring Azure IoT Hub”
Being born and raised in the great state of Wisconsin, beer has been a part of most of my adult life. Couple that with my love of technology, I always wondered how I could leverage some cool tech with a beer theme. Since the proliferation of inexpensive hardware and the Internet of Things (IoT), it has now become easy (and cheap!) to provide solutions that can be used to monitor (among other things) beer-related activities. This article will describe and detail the steps I took to create a solution for monitoring beer consumption on a beer kegerator.Continue reading “Using IoT on a Beer Kegerator”
