SAN JOSE, CA - Ciqada™, an Internet of Things ("IoT") solutions provider, and Cigar Oasis, the supplier of Smart Humidor™ humidifiers, announce that ciqada will equip the Smart Humidor with its full suite of hardware and software, providing the underlying foundation for the Wi-Fi-enabled humidors. The Smart Humidor represents the second generation system for Cigar Oasis and ciqada after a remarkably successful release of the Wi-Fi module, website, and mobile apps for their Next Generation line of humidifiers in 2014.
Ciqada provides an integrated solution composed of hardware modules, cloud server, notification system, web interface and mobile apps to support the remote monitoring, humidity control, and alert notifications for the Smart Humidor. The Smart Humidor website and the mobile apps are customized via ciqada's powerful API to bring a complete facelift, swifter response, and more user-friendly functionality to the smartphone user. "The Smart Humidor is just one example of how far-reaching the Internet of Things has advanced and we’re pleased to deliver a solution that offers quick access to internet-enabled devices", said Geoff Engelstein, President of ciqada.
According to Albert Foundos, president and founder of Cigar Oasis, "Thanks to the two-way communication provided by ciqada, our Smart Humidor does not merely monitor and alert you of changes, but is unique in the cigar accessories market because you can actually control the humidity".
Ciqada™ and GainSpan, an innovator in wireless connectivity solutions, also announce that the GainSpan GS2011MIZ module has been chosen for Wi-Fi communication within the ciqada module. According to Bob Kane, Director of Engineering at ciqada, "GainSpan's GS1011M module was chosen for our first generation system for its integrated networking stack allowing us to focus on our core applications and develop solutions quickly. The GS2000-based module was the natural choice to upgrade our ciqada IoT platform for better performance, lower power, and better cost."
