Hi Mortiz,

Glad you asked this question! We are in the middle of transitioning our platform to our new version which includes mcCloud. With mcCloud, you actually send data to the cloud using webhooks (HTTPS)! The new system has many changes and will be the platform we will be supporting moving forward.
With mcCloud, you have an enhanced security setup and you register devices within the mcCloud portal. You still write your script for the devices in mcStudio but instead of deploying them to device individually, you upload the script/application to your mcCloud portal. From there, you can easily and wirelessly deploy the applications to multiple devices at the same time! You can also direct information from a device to multiple applications that can receive HTTPS.

Important info:
  • The new system requires an mcGateway120. The original mcGateway110's will not function on the new system
  • mcCloud will not work with mcModule110 devices. You will require mcModule120 devices. All other devices can be moved to this new system and new devices ordered from mcThings will now be sent out programmed to use the new system
  • We will be keeping the files and details for the older system on our website but we will not be supporting the older version of the platform
  • mcCloud will eventually be a paid subscription service. However, we will be offering a free tier, up to 25 devices, for everyone to get working with the system! Pricing for mcCloud is very low, in the order of $0.50 - $10 per year, per device (depending on how many devices you have on the system

mcCloud will be released to the public shortly and, although we have not yet officially announced this yet, we will be offering a discounted mcGateway120 and mcModule120 devices to our existing users! This means for anyone that has the older equipment OR has purchased new equipment from mcThings (Either from Kickstarter or from our website store), you will have the option to get more gear at a discounted priced to use on the new system.
To provide some further information on mcCloud, you can check out the below (unpublished link) that has some getting started videos for using mcCloud! Check this out:

Let us know if you have any questions. We will be doing an announcement on mcCloud shortly and will also be contacting our existing users in regards to the discounted gear.
