How to deliver Push notification to IoT devices with Android Things

IoT devices are expected to dominate a large chunk of connected devices as early as early as 2018. But don’t simply judge them by the numbers or volumes. There are a lot to them than just their volumes and features.

IoT devices are standalone for their flexibility and potentiality to connect and collaborate with users with useful personalized experiences. Android’s new operating system for IoT — Android Things — which was previously Known as Brillo makes the integration with IoT devices simple and uncluttered by giving a high level of cross comparability with the existing flagship and migrated work system.

Android of things allows businesses to develop high-class system and applications for integrating with IoT devices using the same platform. As android of things continue to develop, more and more brands will continue to develop android things -powered IoT devices to develop smart and meaningful customer communication technologies and systems Using The Help Of Push Notifications.

This article briefly covers how to develop simple IoT device on android things and then integrate Urban Airship in a way that it can Receive And Send Push Notifications.

The key components of your IoT device will include:

  • Raspberry Pi model 3 B.
  • 10kΩ potentiometer
  • Breadboard
  • HD44780 16x2 LCD
  • Pre-cut jumper wires
  • Simple and brief steps -
  • Connect the LCD to the Raspberry Pi

When your Raspberry Pi is connected to your LCD, flash it and connect it using adb tool. It helps building the Raspberry tool from Android studio.

After connecting LCD to Raspberry, you need to make your Android project compatible by using Android Things and for that you need to add the requisite dependencies and intent filters.

After working with the LCD, you should integrate with a third party launcher to Start Sending And Receiving Push Notifications. And then integrate it in such a way that it an evenly receive and send notifications

The entire stage of the installation and making the device compatible with IoT devices with Android Things might require a comprehensive details analysis. This article briefly summarizes the key points.
