Infrastructure

IoT devices and solutions are increasingly used in homes and commercial spaces to automate tasks, drive efficiency, and reduce costs. Introducing building automation, home network and energy management solutions to homes and buildings through sensors, connected devices and connectivity.

Wiring

Wiring for home automation of lighting, heating, ventilation, air conditioning, electrical and access control of a building through a central system to improve the comfort, efficiency, security, and cost of maintaining and managing a home or commercial building.

Company operating in this Application type:

Network Access

Network access control is used to ensure the security of the network and the IoT devices connected to the network such as computers, smartphones, and smart home devices. Network access control identifies, monitors, and detects devices that are connecting to the network.

Company operating in this Application type:

Energy Management

IoT-enabled energy management systems and devices help households and businesses reduce spending with smart metering and usage monitoring. Commercial buildings and homes can transition to green energy solutions using IoT-enabled devices that are connected to the smart grid. Energy management solutions help predict power consumption and spending.

Awareness & Safety

IoT technology is used in homes and commercial spaces to increase security and awareness of people and assets. IoT-enabled devices and sensors can detect fires, gas, and smoke, monitor and control entry into properties and alert medics or caregivers in case of accidents or to monitor infants.

Security/Alerts

Smart home security devices and systems which can be controlled via smartphones and apps. Motion detectors that trigger lighting and smart locks, alarm systems that send notifications when they detect an intrusion, smart surveillance that begins recording when a sensor is triggered.

Company operating in this Application type:

Fire Safety

IoT can be very effective in detecting and fighting fires. IoT-enabled heatproof sensors can monitor electrical systems by identifying heat sources and alert technicians and authorities in the case of fire or potential hazards. IoT can also track and monitor fire fighting equipment.

Company operating in this Application type:

Environment Safety

IoT applications in environment safety include monitoring safe working environments, monitoring workplace equipment, using environmental sensors to identify potential threats and prevent accidents.

Company operating in this Application type:

Elderly

IoT applications for the elderly have the potential to improve and increase quality of life. Some examples include smart home devices that help senior’s complete everyday activities and automate tasks, smart lighting to help elderly people navigate their homes at night, wearable devices to track location and health metrics.

Company operating in this Application type:

Children

IoT technology can be helpful for monitoring the safety and care of children. IoT devices used for GPS tracking, smart watches for communication, sensors to monitor their health, temperature, and oxygen levels through smartphone applications.

More about this company

When the home became the new office and classroom in 2020, household connectivity became very important very fast. But the shift put huge strains on network providers, which led to the UK losing £5bn to outages that year.

And the internet isn’t all good. 56% of children have seen explicit content online, and 1 in 100 websites contain some form of malware.

It’s impossible to eliminate web-based threats and outages. But with IoT and mobile connectivity, it’s possible to defend against them.

We help organisations of all kinds keep their operations running from home through custom-built IoT and mobile connectivity solutions, available across 185 countries and 960 networks.

Founded in 2015, we’re a team of creators and tech lovers who believe things work better connected. So like our namesake—the supercontinent that connected the world before separating into the continents of today—we’re connecting everything.

Convenience & Entertainment

An exciting area of consumer IoT is convenience and entertainment. Homes and commercial spaces are becoming smarter and more efficient as IoT-enabled sensors are installed in appliances and everyday devices such as remote lighting control, dishwashers, washing machines and speakers.

HVAC/Climate

Some applications for IoT in HVAC equipment and climate control are remote temperature monitoring, predictive maintenance to ensure good working order, IoT sensors send alerts to technicians about faults of filter replacements and to ensure regulatory compliance.

Company operating in this Application type:

Lighting

IoT-enabled lighting applications such as detecting when a building is occupied through IoT enabled devices to improve energy conservation, smart Wi-Fi bulbs that are controlled via voice or smartphones to change lighting colour and dimness, controlled smart lighting as a security measure while a home is unoccupied.

Company operating in this Application type:

Appliance

IoT applications for smart home appliances such as smart refrigerators that keep an inventory of your items, smart ovens that sync with smartphones to manage oven temperature, connected coffee machines and microwaves that respond to voice commands.
