Internet of Things (IoT) – Unlocking Its Power.

Exponential growth of smart devices like mobile phones, low-cost technologies (sensors, wireless networks, big data and cloud computing), mobile connectivity, and volumes of data are the driving force of Internet of Things (IoT).

As the IoT evolves, there will be billions of connected devices. Cisco, estimates this number to be around 50 billion in 2020. EMC and IDC are somewhat more conservative, putting the 2020 IoT population at 30 billion, while Gartner comes in with 26 billion. However, even with these various numbers the sheer number of devices will continue to grow opening up a larger market for IoT.

Deriving meaningful information from the huge volumes of data that connected devices produce can improve decision–making and enable proactive insights.

The IoT is emerging as the third wave in the development. Smart products like smart watches are already gaining grip as stated in Goldman Sachs Global Investment Research’s report.

Organizations can use IoT to achieve cost savings by improving asset utilization, enhancing process efficiency, and boosting productivity. More importantly, Internet of Things opens the door for various enterprises to offer a wide range of new business models and services that can completely change the way we are living today.

 

With such a tremendous growth, IoT-driven innovations are expected to increase research and development investment going into it. Organizations must watch the IoT space closely to see what’s in it for them! 

 

How the Internet of Things Can Improve Quality of Air for a Healthy Life

Air Quality is something that has been talked about for decades by international organizations such as the EAP. Today the air we breathe contains harmful and even carcinogenic pollutants that are dangerous to the health of people. In 2016, according to the Global Burden of Disease Project, pollution caused about 5.5 million deaths per year.

Air is polluted by plenty of different pollutants whether it is inside or outside a building. The major pollutants include Ozone, Carbon Monoxide, Nitrogen Dioxide, Particulate Matter, Sulfur Dioxide, and Lead. These pollutants are extremely dangerous to the health of humans and animals alike and have been affecting 95 million people as reported by The 2015 World’s Worst Pollution Problems report. Now that we know a problem exists what can we do to create a solution? 

The answer is the Internet of things. Advancement in the Internet of things improved the technology to collect, store, and share information. With this technology we have the potential to improve air quality. Sensors and other collection devices, mobile technologies, analytics and cloud computing make it easier to monitor and analyze air quality, and with the information at hand we can easily understand variations and trends of air quality. 

The data provided by this technology will revolutionize decision-making capability that impacts both, our environment and us. For example; the Air Quality monitoring system which we can provide at your home, work, factory, office, or school uses sensors to collect real-time data such as humidity, temperature, carbon monoxide, ammonia, and particulate matter. Current as well as historical data can be easily accessed over the smart mobile devices from anywhere influencing your future decisions. 

Based on analysis and trends, you can set your preferences, like schedule a time to automatically open vents, start de-humidification or air-conditioning units, and switch on the heating.

With the help of IoT technology driven Smart Air Quality monitoring systems, you can help yourself and everyone for generations to come.

 

Are Your Field Services Executives Mobile?

The service industry is expanding quickly and it is time to free businesses from the tedious job of reviewing reports collected by them from the field.

Challenge

A majority of field service executives are on the field without real-time access to the organization’s network, field executives have to resort to collecting and capturing the information manually and later reentering it into an application. This may lead to errors, and reduce the speed at which information moves through the organization, causing delays in the creation information. This kind of delay may be critical for problem-solving, repair, and redeployment of your field executives.

The right remote-scheduler and quick easy-to-submit reports from the field is a high priority, because having efficiently managed field executives is essential to improve business productivity. 

Solution

One of the primary goals of any solution is to increase the efficiency and productivity of field executives.

Using an app field executives should be able to: 

  • View dynamic services assigned. 
  • View direction to customer venue. 
  • Create reports at customer site
  • Submit service status report, feedback report, survey form
  • Take customer signatures to close the service tickets
  • Submit expense report. 

Instead of seeing mobile devices as a tool for personnel tracking and performance monitoring, field executives can use mobility to generate substantial value by improving service cycle times. This make business processes more efficient, paperless and user-friendly

Benefits

Improved Operational Speed – Travel time to jobs are reduced because assignments can be made no matter where the field executive is located. No more coming to the office or calling to check on day activity. The field resource can access visit schedules via any smart phone or tablet.

Improved Customer Satisfaction – With instantaneous access to schedules and resource availability, visits can be managed to meet customer expectations. Satisfied customers become loyal customers.

Real-time Reporting - Monitor reports to get quick insight as to how your business is doing. Quickly view completed work orders, individual staff statistics, revenue-driving services, expense reports, and more. No need to wait for the field executive to come and update the reports next day.

Improve Field Executive Productivity - Proper scheduling greatly improves a field executive’s productivity by ensuring the work is distributed on time. Businesses can monitor the productivity of each executive, thus maintaining a productive workforce. 

Are you paying too much for your electric power usage?

Fears of global climate change and limited resources have increased energy awareness and conservation by both consumers and utilities. Electricity is one of the easiest resources to waste because energy consumed by consumers is largely invisible. Energy meters are usually hidden away, bills are paid by direct debit, and only a few users have any idea how much they are using, let alone wasting. 

Inside of a house, there are many devices, systems, and appliances, including lighting, laptops, dishwasher, HVAC systems, security cameras, and other consumer electronics. The problem is that none of them are able to communicate – they are not smart.

Applying the Internet of Things (IoT) technology to an existing installation, such as smart energy monitoring system, can supply better information and lead to better decisions.

The IoT addresses the urgent energy conservation needs of society by making energy consumption visible to both homeowners and businesses. The IoT will help businesses and homeowners understand and reduce their electricity consumption.

A smart IoT based wireless energy monitoring solution allows you to know which appliances are currently on and the current and past energy consumption. The system provides detailed information about the energy usage of different appliances individually or as a whole and notifies you of your extra energy consumption.

Easy to use iOS and Android apps makes it easy to keep an eye on your home while you are away. Get an instant overview of how much you're spending on your energy with the graphics and statistics function within the app, and know what to expect before your bill even arrives, making unexpected surprises a thing of the past.

Smart system solution can help you conserve energy and monitor the real cost of your habits — such as leaving the TV on when no one’s watching. Using the IoT in energy saving saves electricity and money, lowers carbon pollution, and reduces environmental footprint.
