Low energy consumption is one of the major triggers of scalable product launch and maintenance. When your product is power-hungry, you are bound to receive negative reviews from your customers or get your app deleted altogether. So every developer wants to achieve long battery life of their products; developers are increasingly looking for ways to address the challenges of power consumption.
The award winning Otii by Qoitech attempts to address this problem by making energy optimization become more accessible. Designed to empower developers to work better and smarter, Otii gives a full grasp into what causes battery drain throughout a product cycle and how likely pitfalls can be avoided. With this tool, you can measure and analyze battery power, that way you can reduce energy consumption by automating common repetitive tasks.
The Otii comes in two variants; the Otii Standard and the Otii Enterprise. Here is a comparison between the two to help you choose the right option for your needs.
However, the Otii Enterprise is best for individuals keen on having an even more efficient product development and testing. Its special set of features make it great for continuous integration, test automation and many more use cases. The Otii enterprise has everything in the Otii standard with some extra enterprising features like built-in scripting which can be used to automate repetitive tasks, TCP-server to help you control your Otii from any system that supports communication over TCP sockets, battery profiling to help find the best fit among various battery options and battery emulation used during device development to test its behavior when it is running out of power.The Otii standard is the tool for designing high energy efficient devices. It comprises of the Otii arc and the Otii software. The arc acts as a current and voltage measurement unit as well as a power supply to the device being tested while the software is a desktop application that is easy to use in Windows, Mac and Ubuntu Operating System.
Meanwhile, the battery toolbox is one important part of this tool that makes it worth considering. With the battery toolbox, users can be guided to pick the right battery for their device and application. The toolbox has features that profile real batteries for IoT and gives practical insight about the battery that is the best fit for your product. During its early stage of development, the toolbox sets the overall energy consumption expectations and later verifies that the initial assumptions about the battery product’s battery life did not change during its iterative process. The battery toolbox comes with a software license which when purchased and activated, is assigned with the Otii app.
