To web and mobile developers, Google Analytics is probably the most popular and important usage analysis tool. It is free to use and powerful enough for most use cases. We use it for all of MODE’s websites and love it. In fact, we like it so much that we want to bring the awesomeness of GA to IoT development.

Although GA was originally designed for web and mobile, some of its features can be adapted to provide insights to device and user activities in a MODE project. So we have created the Google Analytics Smart Module to make the integration as seamless and simple as possible. It is now in BETA release and is available to all projects on MODE.

Check out this how-to guide for a full walk-through of this new Smart Module. Add it to your MODE project and try it out. And as always, if you have any questions, feel free to post them to our Q&A forum.
