Bring Your Own Edge Device

Compact Low Cost Edge Device

The Basic Aretas Edge Software runs on almost any compute device that can run Ubuntu (or certain Debian variants). If you have an extra computer, SBC or other device that meets the minimum requirements, just order a wireless adapter with the appropriate module and you can start using the Edge software on your own device.  View data in real time with live charts, query historical data and export data to your application. The Aretas Edge Devices can also connect your sensors to the Aretas Cloud and will backlog messages when Internet is down or intermittent. Aretas Edge devices can talk to most Aretas sensors including CO2, Temperature, Relative Humidity, Carbon Monoxide, Radiation, Nitrogen Dioxide and many more. 

All you need is a compatible wireless adapter (if using XBee/ZigBee/etc)
