Stevens-Connect recently received a huge makeover, and in the process received a new, refined interface and became more powerful and flexible.
Part of the new power we’ve introduced is the ability to utilize data from various 3rd-party sources, such as USGS, NCRS, Advanced Hydrological Prediction Service, mesonets and more. Data from these feeds can be used in any of the ways that data from your own sensors in your network can. For example, you can plot the data in a graph or view it in a table, and place those graphs or charts on your dashboard. You can also use this data in calculations or alerts.
It’s this data source-agnostic approach of reaching beyond your own private data is what makes Stevens-Connect one of the most flexible data management applications available. We like to refer to it as a “Data Integration Hub”. Our vision is to make Stevens-Connect connectible to any data source, no matter how or where it’s measured and collected.
We’ve just extended this flexibility further by adding integrated support for two-way communication with Campbell Scientific data loggers via cell modem or ethernet using a dynamic IP address. This allows you to configure your Campbell data logger to transmit data to Stevens-Connect for reporting and data analysis, as well as update the data logger’s reporting and sensors’ logging intervals directly from Stevens-Connect. Stevens-Connect can also provide confirmation to the Campbell data logger of a successful data delivery to the server. LoggerNet may still be required for low-level operations.
We’re excited about extending Stevens-Connect’s ability to acquire data from some of the most popular data loggers in the world for environmental monitoring, and about more developments that are coming in the future, which we can’t wait to share. For now, you can read about Stevens-Connect’s new features in our latest newsletter.
