feature_ontologyCustom Ontology

Cloud242 can represent anything you need it to by defining your ontology. Each object type can have a custom icon and visual dashboard and can be identified in scripts for complex analysis and reporting tasks.

feature_navtreeTree Navigation

Organise your things hierarchically and display them in the tree navigation structure. Relationship between things can also be processed by scripts and dashboard visualisations.

feature_usersUser Management

Quickly add users to your Cloud242 instance and let them access data and documents. Apply security group permissions to restrict access to any object and its children.

feature_reportingCustom Reporting


Cloud242 provides a powerful script based reporting engine that can be used to selectively navigate object hierarchies, extract data, perform calculations and visualise results in HTML; within the application or in an email.

feature_messagesMessage Processing


When a message is received by an object a custom script can be executed to perform additional actions. This can be used for many purposes, commonly for integrating systems to physical devices via 3rd party REST API services.


Render things visually using the built-in dashboard system. Add charts and tables to show information with the ability for users to create their own views.

feature_apiAPI Access

Submit and Retrieve data through the REST API layer provided by Cloud242. Let users access data streams in CSV and JSON formats to integrate with 3rd party tools such as Excel.

We provide additional services to automate the import of data from FTP or other sources such as message queues and email. The ability to manually import CSV data is included within the VISION application for FREE.

feature_documentsDocument Storage


Documents can be stored in Cloud242 and downloaded or even viewed within the VISION client application. Storage capacity can be purchased to meet your specific requirements.
