The Internet of Things – Product Connectivity
The Internet of Things
Today’s consumers are looking for ways to make their life simpler. Having connected devices affords consumers the convenience of managing interactions with inanimate devices and systems in ways that were unheard of only a decade ago. However, there are some challenges when it comes to connectivity for devices that are a part of the Internet of Things (IoT). Creating a seamless connection that simply works means also ensuring that there are the proper security measures in place to protect your network and devices. Stitching together secure connections for a variety of different platforms has been difficult, especially as business systems grow in complexity.
Benefits of IoT Connectivity
Internet of Things product design has been transformational for many businesses, allowing businesses from logistics and retail to more easily interact with the digital world and devices. Previously called machine-to-machine communication, IoT has moved from being a buzzword to a truly useful solution for complex business and personal problems. Disruption is the name of the game, with businesses actively looking for ways to outclass their competition by leveraging smart technology to simplify their work or improve speed to market. These virtual connections between devices allow for advanced levels of automation, leading to more timely output and better information upon which to base decisions.
Applications of IoT for Business
Do you want to spend payroll having an employee constantly monitor a process to ensure that it stays within parameters? With IoT and other interconnected platforms, monitoring and reporting become much more automatic. You can set a device to trigger a notification anytime a process steps outside certain parameters, allowing you to remotely monitor processes and even allow programs to self-correct based on pre-set business logic. Consumers applications are also becoming widely popular, as people see the value of having their home temperatures monitored by connected systems and their floors cleaned by self-driven vacuum cleaners.
