Remote access and connectivity specialist TeamViewer is looking to help companies and individuals kickstart their IoT journey – with a free solution.
TeamViewer is making all functions of its Internet of Things (IoT) solution available free of charge for up to two IoT endpoints.
Alfredo Patron, executive vice president for business development at TeamViewer, said the vendor is keen to play its part in democratising the IoT, granting access to as many users as possible, whether private or corporate.
“No matter where it’s implemented, be it for an individual home project or a proof-of-concept design at a global company, we are convinced that users learn about possible application scenarios and the advantages of IoT best by experimenting,” Patron said.
Step-by-step instructions and onboarding wizards should help people get started quickly, he added.
The IoT endpoints could include industrial computers and machinery, digital signage devices, POS devices and vehicles. But they are not limited to these., according to the company.
TeamViewer IoT is also ready for direct connection to Dell gateways, Raspberry Pis and BeagleBone Blacks. Full FAQs here via the TeamViewer community.
“In general, a connection can be established to any endpoint running a Debian or Red Head Linux distribution, a partition of Linux Raspberry Pi, Windows and soon Android operating system,” according to a press statement.
