Rule Engine

Trigger actions based on your sensor data

With the akenza Rule Engine, you can analyze and process data of multiple devices simultaneously and trigger actions when needed. Actions include sending notifications, sending downlinks or forwarding your data to third-party applications and cloud environments. All that with no coding skills required!

  • No-Code Logic Blocks

    Implement your business logic based on no-code logic blocks.

  • Event based

    Act immediately after a certain event has happened.

  • Timed rules

    Trigger rule logic based on a fixed schedule and allow time-based evaluation of rules.

  • Custom Logic

    If you are an expert and prefer to implement your logic in JavaScript, you can develop your custom rule.

Rule Input

Execute rules based on all your data input sources

Create rules based on the data inputs of one or multiple devices. Alternatively, use custom tags to organize your assets into groups and trigger rule logic on these devices. Act immediately after a particular event or execute rule logic in a time-based fashion.

Rule logic

Create your business logic in minutes

Implement your business logic based on no-code logic blocks. A growing list of standard logic components allows you to process your data effortlessly. Do you require some more advanced logic blocks? No worries, you can also write your own custom logic blocks with just a few lines of JavaScript code.

Rule action

Powerful actions and automation possibilities at your fingertips

Numerous rule actions let you automate your processes and trigger notifications on your favorite messaging tools.
