Zang Cloud is a robust, cloud-based development platform that enables developers to seamlessly integrate communications actions, such as voice and messaging, into any application via an API.

For more info on Zang Cloud, visit zang.io/products/cloud and follow us on twitter @zang_io, to stay up to date on Zang leading up to the DeveloperWeek Hackathon.

Our Challenge:

Build a notification services app that leverages IoT (Internet of Things).

Leveraging the data from IoT sensors as the trigger, drive proactive communications and workflows leveraging the Zang Cloud API. Use typical IoT triggers to drive workflows and/or communications based on thresholds met. Define your use case and trigger (e.g., healthcare blood pressure cuff embedded with a sensor to monitor and check for dangerously high blood pressure rates). OR an ice cream machine at a retail store embedded with sensors for temperature and humidity to monitor the machine for risk of bacteria growth. These are only suggestions – use your imagination to come up with your own IoT application. Your app should leverage Zang Cloud for its communications-enablement. You will be able to simulate the passing of data from an IoT sensor (vs. using the actual sensors).

Bonus points:

  • Incorporating voice as well as SMS in to the escalation or communications workflow
  • Integration with 3rd party systems (e.g., ServiceNow to initiate a ticket and drive escalations)
  • Integrating this app with another 3rd party DevWeek sponsor
  • Leveraging additional Zang Cloud services (e.g., when your flow escalates to a phone call, spoof the number displayed)
