Notehub

The Blues Wireless Notehub is a service for securely managing Notecard fleets and routing data to third-party cloud applications.

A Secure Conduit For Device-To-Cloud Connectivity

Start prototyping for free and connect your Notecards to any cloud application. Upgrade when you're ready to take your solution to pilot, production, and beyond.

Route to Any Cloud Application

Notehub events are pure JSON and can be filtered, transformed and routed to any third-party cloud application. Using one of our Route templates, or create fully customizable requests with common protocols.

Device Auto-Provisioning

Notecard has a mostly-offline data sync for low power and an always-online mode for low latency. The battery typically draws less than 8μA when idle.

Fleet and Firmware Management

Manage and monitor your fleets in real-time, configure shared settings at the device, project, and fleet levels, and flash Notecard and host firmware with over-the-air device firmware updates.

Secure Communication

Once a Notecard is associated to a Notehub project, provisioning is automatic—no certificate management, user-association, or manual claiming required.

Frequently asked questions

What are Events?

Data sent by your host into the Notecard flow through a Notehub on its way to your own cloud service. These data Events and other device activity & security Events are first logged in a cloud database so that you may assess the operational health of your devices and fleets. Events are then routed to any number of cloud services that you may configure. Finally, logged Events may also be accessed through a Notehub API. Charges are assessed as Events are routed out or accessed through the API.

What is an Event retention?

The Notehub keeps its rolling log of Events in a cloud database referred to as an Event Log. The Event Retention Period – usually denominated as 24-hour UTC-aligned days, 7-day weeks, or 30-day months – defines the timeframe during which you’ll have access to the event log using the Notehub Web UI and APIs. The Notehub may permanently purge events from its event log storage once they fall outside the Retention Period.

What is a Triangulation event?

Whenever the Notecard connects to the Notehub and establishes a new session, the Notehub opportunistically gathers information that may be useful to the project administrator, such as the current time and information about the cell tower and wireless signal strength. At the same time, the Notecard is capable of optionally gathering and uploading additional information about its surroundings, such as the list of all cell towers and WiFi access points whose antennas are “in view”. Each Notehub project is configurable such that it can anonymously use third party triangulation and multilateration services to determine an approximate geolocation, which is used to annotate the applicable session events. These specific session events, which are annotated with geolocation metadata, are referred to as Triangulation Events. The additional cost of these events is due to the inherent expense in gathering and keeping up-to-date a global database of cell towers and WiFi access points.

What is a Connectivity Assurance?

When the Notecard runs low on data, Connectivity Assurance will automatically add data to the Notecard SIM's data plan. The mobile data plan will be adjusted when there is either 100MB left on the plan or 90 days before the plan's expiration.
