What Is The Internet of Things?
IoT or Internet of Things is the new buzz phrase in the electrical industry. Simply put, IoT is the interconnection via the internet of computing devices embedded in everyday objects, enabling them to send and receive data. According to The Electrical Distributor magazine, “The convergence of broadband internet availability, decreasing internet costs, growth of WiFi devices, decreasing technology costs and skyrocketing smartphone penetration has created a “perfect storm” for the IoT. By 2021, global IoT spending is expected to reach $1.4 trillion as organizations continue to invest in hardware, software, services, and connectivity.”
What IoT Means For You and Your Business
IoT systems are laying the groundwork for smart, connected buildings, communities and homes. Many major electrical product manufacturers are investing heavily into this market. These product introductions provide electrical contractors with opportunities to work with their customers providing value added products and services. As trained electrical professionals, your customers look to you to provide them with the latest in electrical options. For homeowners, the purchase of a home is often the biggest investment they will ever make. That home and investment should grow and change with the homeowners as their lives and circumstances change. For business owners and industrial facility managers, day to day operations leave very little extra time for research and inquiry regarding up-fits with the latest advancements in electrical technology products. Having a trained electrical professional to consult with regarding areas of concern is a great benefit to homeowners, business owners, and industrial facility managers.
