MainHive

MainHive is a next-generation cloud IoT platform mainly focusing on bringing extensive monitoring, analytics, automated billing, and customised alerts for the clients’ devices fleet.

Product

Background story

The project was dedicated to Lithuanian environment. The team decided to scale it to a global product, and that's how Mainhive was born.

The platform provides a B2B service for managing a large number of devices (called a "device farm"), which is used by big businesses. The platform offers different packages for device management based on the device model, including billing, alerts, groupings, and user policy management.

The main markets for the platform are Denmark and the USA. The platform includes business intelligence dashboards and supports various types of devices, such as water heaters, CO2 sensors, and electricity meters.

The platform is designed to support smart cities in the future. The platform was built from scratch over a period of 2 years and is fully serverless, using cloud functions on AWS.

The platform is based on domain-driven design principles. CCT has been a part of this product development from the first code lines. The development team started with 2 people and grew through team augmentation.

Problem
There is no one-stop solution to monitor and unify data provided by multiple IoT meters.(water heat electricity temperature co2)
Solution
Aggregating data from smart meters and displaying to the users using PowerBI dashboards with the help of AWS microservices.

Key features

Manufacturer agnostic. The system is capable of adapting to most meters created by different manufacturers. Data is parsed to the same format, which can be worked on by our data scientists and displayed in our interactive dashboards.

AI-powered business intelligence by Microsoft. The system is capable of learning from past data to provide predictions for the future. The system supports the client's native language.

The system is flexible and can be configured depending on client needs and the organization/user using it. The system is elastic and capable of scaling on demand and needs at hand.
