Pozetron

Surprised there's no discussion of Pozetron on the forum.

It seems to be a Micropython-oriented cloud-based IoT deployment infrastructure, compatible with ESP8266 and other platforms. Looks pretty interesting if it can do what it says...

I'm really excited to see discussion about Pozetron here on the forum!

As the founder of Pozetron Inc I set out to address the pain points that I was experiencing developing IoT devices for my own use. I had to ask myself, how can I keep improving the code, debugging the issues and managing the devices once I had put the micro-controller into some larger device where it was no longer accessible. The solution to my problems became Pozetron.

The answer to your question is YES, it does do what it says.

We've got a stable and well tested ESP8266 port as well as a more experimental ESP32 port available today. All the code that gets deployed to a device is freely available on our Github (https://github.com/pozetroninc/micropython) and is deliberately written to be cross-platform with minimal changes required to support different hardware. We've also got a tutorial on remixing the device code to better suit your needs (https://www.pozetron.com/tutorial/esp82 ... -remixing/).

Pozetron is designed to solve problems, so if anyone has any feedback at all on how it can better solve your IoT pain points please get in touch so that our team can make it better for us all!

tl;dr; I think Pozetron is awesome at solving real problems and you should register for an account! https://registration.apps.pozetron.com/registration

The Pozetron cloud is simply the fastest way to get started with the Internet of Things (IoT). Create an account, connect your device and with one command be building an Internet connected device in under 5 minutes.

From their privacy document:
Pozetron Inc uses remarketing services to advertise on third party web sites to you after you visited our Service. We, and our third party vendors, use cookies to inform, optimize and serve ads based on your past visits to our Service.
All bar their most limited account - a single-device demo - is a chargeable service. My view is that if you pay for something it is reasonable to expect that you won't be subject to this behaviour. As in all things, caveat emptor applies.

Hi Peter,

Thanks for the feedback!

Prior to GDPR that was a standard clause in most privacy policies for sites that use Google Analytics since it is a feature of that service. I've made sure that we are not using the remarketing feature and therefore after double checking with our lawyers I should be able remove that particular clause.

Given that we're a such a small company we can change things such as our privacy policy based upon feedback.

Also, a slight clarification on our current pricing model. While we do intend to charge for accounts with multiple devices in the future, but we are not currently charging for any accounts. Feedback is much more valuable to us at this stage than any potentially foregone revenue so please keep it coming!
