Supported systems

TeamViewer provides free access to up to two IoT endpoints, which are for example industrial computers and machinery, digital signage devices, POS devices and vehicles. But they are not limited to these. TeamViewer IoT is ready for direct connection to Dell gateways, Raspberry Pis and BeagleBone Blacks. 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.

If production stands still

In the corporate world, TeamViewer IoT can be used for a wide range of application scenarios across all industries, for example in manufacturing, heavy industry, process industry and agriculture. Production machine manufacturers can thus access their customers’ devices from anywhere in the world in case of problems. This enables fast and efficient troubleshooting and saves costs for both parties. TeamViewer IoT can also be used to monitor device parameters, such as temperature, fill levels or any custom sensor data, and send alerts in case of deviations. TeamViewer IoT can then automatically trigger pre-defined actions, enable remote access and remote management of those devices to keep them running.
