Although not new, the Internet of Things has been gaining momentum over the last 5 years. Put simply, the IoT is about connecting devices over the internet (or other frequencies such as Wi-Fi) and letting them “talk” to applications, each other and to us. It’s a similar concept to software and hardware integration. It’s enabling individuals and even cities to become smarter and more efficient – and potentially it could do the same for your business. If you’re still wondering whether the IoT has breakthrough potential in your industry, Deloitte suggests that the power of IoT lies in uncovering the additional, and potentially disruptive, value that is enabled by having real-time, context-aware data feeds from multiple sources over time.
If you know what you need from IoT – and even if you don’t – we can help you. As well as knowing the ins and outs of technology and the best ways to use it to help power your business, we pride ourselves on our ability to converse in plain language, our creativity and the ideas we bring to the table even if you think you’ve already got the ideal solution. We can create mobile, tablet, web or desktop-based software applications with either a cloud based or local database that “talk” via either short-range frequencies such as NFC, Wi-fi, Bluetooth or infrared, or long-range frequencies like the internet and radio-frequency identification (RFID). Because you’ll have a lot of data from your IoT device, it’s important that the front-end is completely user-friendly. We’ll create a front-end that includes elements such as:
A completely customisable user interface (UI) dashboard that makes it easy for you and other users to visualise and understand your data
Quick and simple reporting that can be emailed or printed
The ability to securely store large amounts of data indefinitely
The IoT is everywhere and it’s connecting everything! From individual devices to smart city infrastructures.
Smart Home clearly stands out, ranking as highest Internet of Things application on all measured channels.
Wearable technology is a hallmark of IoT applications and probably is one of the earliest industries to have deployed the IoT at its service. We happen to see Fit Bits, heart rate monitors and smartwatches everywhere these days.
