Trigger Events in the AutoPi Cloud

Connect with external subsystems and get notifications when important events occour.

React on any event

Reactors enables powerful features by linking together subsystems

Reactors are based on the If-This-Then-That methodology. They are the glue between the data from your AutoPi dongle and other internal and external subsystems. Reactors listens on events and uses available information to trigger and interact with different subsystems. It is possible to react on events like a speed threshold exceeded or an externally connected rain sensor. A reactor can then trigger subsystems to send text messages, post information on Facebook, close the car's windows and sunroof etc.

Monitor everything with beacons

Any condition in your car can be monitored with beacons

Where reactors trigger other subsystems on specific events, beacons monitors resources and provide events to reactors when a given condition is fulfilled. A beacon can have multiple reactors and an event can therefore trigger a lot of subsystems at the same time. You can have a beacon set up to monitor the speed of the car. When the speed is above a given threshold an event is triggered by the beacon. A reactor can then respond to this event by sending a text message or maybe speak an audio message using the AutoPi dongle's built-in speaker. - Setup beacons to monitor resources
