Microshare brings data of your environment to your fingertips, but how? Underneath Microshare’s plug-n-play module lies a system of collecting data and communicating the results through our API. As you can see, the technical side of the documentation site is separated into Microshare platform, API and LoRaWAN categories. These three sections represent the cornerstones of Microshare’s technical structure.


LoRaWAN Technology

Firstly, Microshare uses hardware set around the client’s environment to communicate with our API. This is done via three type of devices: sensors, gateways and our networks. The sensor is a LoRaWAN device which collects data and sends that information via Lora signal to the LoRaWAN gateway, which is also installed in the environment. That gateway then sends the information to the Microshare network via cellular or WiFi signal. The Microshare API takes the information, and represents it within your dashboard, which you can access on the Microshare Platform. You can learn how these devices are installed here. The devices arrive at your doorstep all ready set up and ready to go by our fulfillment team and our Deploy- M app will make your installation very easy.

Microshare’s API

The API, or Application Programming Interface, has Microshare’s specific protocols and tools to communicate the devices’ data. Microshare’s API takes many security precautions to ensure the protection of client data and understanding Authentication will be crucial for learning the interface. Learning share API will allow you to create and manage your data within Microshare’s data lake. You can get started with the Microshare API with the Quick Start page.

The Microshare Platform

The Microshare platform grants you control over the visualization of the data collected by the devices. Creating a device cluster, you can group data from multiple devices to be represented together. Creating an App allows you to customize how that data is represented. Implementing rules and views allow you to control who has access to certain data, and robots allow you to automate certain tasks within the platform. Identities give certain clearance to view data, further regulating who has access to certain tools and information. All tools are key components to the platform, and allow you to have complete control over your data.

Where do I start?

As a developer, you will explore the features and applications of these components in greater detail. The Basic Developer Roadmap walks you through, step- by- step, how you can best become familiar with what Microshare has to offer behind the scenes. Furthermore, the Advanced Developer Roadmap guides you through the more difficult concepts of the Microshare platform and API.
