Particle emonPi

Hi guys,
I thought it would be of interest to the community to know that Particle is opening its cloud to Raspberry Pi.
What does this mean? It means things like these become possible or easier:

  • Simple Arduino Code: Use the existing Particle Web IDE, and program your Pi with Wiring. No more complicated tooling, setup, or scripting to perform simple tasks like trigger a pin, blink an LED, or read a sensor value.

  • Over-the-Air Updates: Safely reprogram code running on your Pi’s one at a time in the Web IDE or as a fleet of devices in the Console.

  • Batch Script Execution: Remotely execute customized scripts on groups of Raspberry Pi’s using the exec command.

  • Remote Data Collection: Collect and publish data to the Particle Cloud, or store it locally by logging it on your Pi.

  • Integrations: Integrate with IFTTT, Google Cloud, or Microsoft Azure.

I think the software one could potentially write in wiring could co-exist with the emoncms software and NOT replace it.

I’m a Particle fanboy and wrote this article in Hackster.

Particle’s official announcement is here.

Hope you find this information useful,

Also, things like cute GUIs with Blynk become perhaps easier with the Particle integration (or not).
