The IoT may have as great an impact on society as the industrial revolution, computers and the Internet have had. Maybe even more.
Qorvo®, a provider of RF solutions that connect the world, and ubisys, a smart home and Internet of Things (IoT) company, have developed a new ultra-compatible gateway solution.
Sure, it’s good for the planet. But smart home energy management can save you money in some unexpected ways, says Cees Links of Qorvo Wireless Connectivity.
A recent Comcast report, compiled from almost 1,300 US consumers, explained that what consumers really want in the IoT connected smart home is services – Smart Home as a Service (AKA SHaaS) – not a bunch of connected devices that remotely control various widgets and devices in the home.
Worldwide, thousands of technology companies are viewing the Internet of Things and the Smart Home as the Holy Grail for their products and profits. Most industry analysts and leaders are predicting that hundreds of millions of homes will want these new technologies.
Management of thousands or millions of internet connected devices is posing a major obstacle to the success of the Internet of Things (IoT), claims IoT pioneer DevicePilot (previously called 1248).
Sell services – Not connected things
Imagine the concept of a butler. The reason rich people hire someone like a butler is that service professionals are trained to recognise what is happening in the home and to provide the appropriate services. They don’t need to be programmed to open the door or turn on the lights.
Almost every technology media outlet – consumer, trade and engineering – has been writing about the ongoing avalanche of technology for the home. It is the next big thing. Incredible predictions are being tossed out by the analyst community and industry players, says Cees Links – founder & CEO GreenPeak Technologies.
