AllThingsTalk Glance, the new mobile app from AllThingsTalk, lets you see your most valuable IoT data at a glance. You can select assets from any ground and view them on a single screen. The app also supports push notifications, which can be triggered from AllThingsTalk Rule Engine.
AllThingsTalk Glance works both on Maker, and on private business spaces. To authenticate, follow these simple steps:
After logging in, you will be presented with a blank screen, to which you will be able to add assets from any ground you own, or are a member off.
Add asset button to get to the asset selection screen.
From here, you will be able to select any ground you own, or have access to.
You will get a chance to edit the title of the asset displayed on the screen.
Note: Currently, only boolean, number, integer and string asset types are supported.
Once you repeat the process with all the assets you need, you will get a personal overview of your IoT world. Asset states will update in real time, or using a standard downward refresh gesture.
If there are more than a screenful of assets, the list can be scrolled.
For each asset on the main screen, users can choose to edit the onscreen title, change asset’s position in the list, and remove the asset from the list.
Not all data needs to be visible at all times. While you might want to check the CO2 level in your town repeatedly, one time events shouldn’t take screen space until they happen. For this reason, AllThingsTalk Glance integrates push notifications.
If you set up a rule to notify you with a push notification, that push notification will automatically arrive to all devices where AllThingsTalk Glance is installed when the rule is triggered.
Once a push notification arrives, it will remain visible on top of all assets until it’s dismissed.
