Fineo Features

Fineo is the easiest, smartest way to build your IoT analytics. With features like:

  • Fully integrated java client API with synchronous and asynchronous endpoints
  • JDBC compliant access to data
  • In-depth security

we are ready to solve all your data problems, no matter what the scale.



When you sign up, you will be given an API Key. Keep this safe - it ties all requests back to your tables/data. If anyone else gets access to this key, they will be able to see you information.


When you sign up through the application, you specified an email and password. These will be user username and password, respectively, and used for signing all requests to the API. This ensures that no one else can masquerade as you.

Devices are also given 'access' and 'secret' keys that are compliant with the AWS IAM style credentials. They will look something like this:

aws_access_key: AKIBJHP57RXU4RO...
aws_secret_access_key: 5kZVWNNhf56h4iRC04DyYN3XI5elYO...

These credentials are used to authenticate/authorize a specific device to when making actions - reading, writing, updating schema, etc.

All these credentials should be kept in a safe place.
