Smart Home

When a smart home company first launched, they noticed that their customers were having numerous unexpected problems with their device, leading to negative reviews. Realizing that they needed better insight into how their devices were performing, they turned to iobeam. Now, with iobeam’s time-series database, they are able to store much more device telemetry than before, and ask complex questions in real-time: e.g., how many errors were generated in the last 24 hours by firmware version; how has the latest software update affected battery life; how many of our devices are experiencing low resource capacity at the moment? With this live monitoring data, the company can now better spot problems, is proactively resolving problems before customers complain, and have improved customer retention.
