Goppingen/Nuremberg, February 25th, 2019 – TeamViewer®, a global leader in secure remote connectivity solutions, is exhibiting at Embedded World Expo 2019 in Nuremberg from February 26 to 28, where it will showcase the newest features of its dedicated Internet of Things solution, TeamViewer IoT.

TeamViewer IoT: Secure Hyperconnectivity for IoT environments
TeamViewer IoT features live remote control and incident management for virtually any IoT device such as gateways, Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), and specialized industrial machinery. It can instantly be deployed through the cloud, is managed through a cloud interface and enables users to securely connect, manage, and monitor edge devices from anywhere. Thanks to TeamViewer’s Global Access Network with more than 1000 secure routers worldwide TeamViewer IoT provides scale, security, high performance, and low latency for customers demanding geographical reach. TeamViewer IoT can as well easily be integrated with existing IoT platforms and legacy IT landscapes.

“The latest version of our dedicated IoT solution provides enhanced configuration, screen grabbing, and additional remote troubleshooting possibilities. Together with real-time edge visualization, we continuously strive to leverage our leading connectivity expertise for a horizontal, non-proprietary IoT solution that is instantly productive and just works”, says Dr. Mike Eissele, Chief Technology Officer at TeamViewer.

New features presented in Nuremberg include:

Remote Screen Grabbing
With Remote Screen Grabbing TeamViewer completes the access possibilities to devices. While it was already possible to access user interfaces of non-screen devices, users can now instantly establish a
remote connection to a device anywhere in the world and connect to screens and displays to access user interfaces (GUIs). This way, users can remotely operate machines and devices as if they were standing right in front of them.

Extension of the cloud rule engine
With TeamViewer IoT, users can automate their environment, set alerts and triggers, monitor performance issues and immediately react to any errors that occur on the monitored device. Users can create custom rules and smart triggers, visualize sensor data, and monitor their devices all from one IoT console. With the latest update, users can now also create conditional rules that apply to multiple devices and metrics and get rule-based alarms, set different severity levels as well as notifications with web hooks to trigger further actions (e.g. creation of a ticket in a third-party ticketing system).

Remote edge monitoring and control in real time
Users have now the option and flexibility to command and control devices, machines, and sensors directly on the Edge in addition to passing data through the cloud. Just a few clicks, and the machine responds in real time. Additional benefits include:

  • The TeamViewer IoT Edge Device Management Application provides users with real-time visualization of data on the user’s IoT device.
  • Customers can feed their own data and sensors into the IoT network thanks to the TeamViewer IoT agent, which includes an MQTT API and an SDK.
  • A rule engine that runs on the edge device, which enables real-time actions to be triggered on the IoT device or data aggregation to minimize data upload to the cloud.

To learn more about these features, visit TeamViewer in Hall 4, Booth 159 at Embedded World Expo 2019 in Nuremberg and see how well TeamViewer IoT’s monitoring and control capabilities work together in live demonstrations:

  • Connect to devices thousands of miles away and monitor a coffee machine retrofitted with sensors or steer a remote-controlled car through an racetrack in real-time
  • Take a look at a prototype, co-developed by National Instruments and TeamViewer, showcasing the integrated TeamViewer IoT solution through a smart, connected and secure water pump unit
  • Take a sneak peek at the “TeamViewer IoT Starter Kit”, a ready-to-go, professional plug-and-play kit which enables users to get started with their very own end-to-end industrial IoT solution out-of-the-box in a matter of moments

Cross-platform compatibility, security, and ease of use make TeamViewer IoT one of the best-in-breed solutions on the market. Users can connect their device from anywhere by clicking “connect to device” and can get started within minutes – without having to setup complicated VPNs. The functionality of TeamViewer IoT and its cost-effective implementation has already won over renowned partners such as PTC ThingWorx, Vodafone, and Dell.
