Best IoT-driven Home Automation Protocols | #TpromoCom #HomeAutomation #SmartHome #IoT | If you own a talking virtual assistant like Alexa, a wearable device like FitBit or a smart television, you are already experiencing IoT at fundamental levels (iotbusinessnews).

Though these standalone devices don’t make up for an IoT based home automation solution, they still communicate with each other for data and insights.

Generally, brand manufacturers have their own distinct operating protocols for their range of products and services, where the language of one device wouldn’t be understood by another device, or data interoperability would simply be restricted and more.

How Leading Companies Are Using AI Sensors for Safety

How Leading Companies Are Using AI Sensors for Safety
| #TpromoCom #AI #Safety #IoT | Predictive technology personalizing the safety of individual workers for proactive injury management (ehstoday

New advances in ergonomic training using sensors and biofeedback are forging a step change in manual handling injury reduction. Leveraging the power of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), coaching workers to self-correct their movements in real-time and avoid ergonomic injuries, is stimulating an engaging personalized pathway to behavioural change.

Soter Analytics is leading the way when it comes to developing miniaturized technology using AI and ML to measure the capability of humans and calculating how much we can endure. (read more)

Environmental Data & IoT: The Perfect Union

Environmental Data & IoT: The Perfect Union
| #TpromoCom #IoT #Integrators #Verdafero | The actual monitoring of water flow, utility data, HVAC processes, and more are performed through IoT sub-meters and data loggers (iotforall).
Given the reality that so many people worldwide are affected by some environmental hazard regularly, with the right product strategy, nearly every IoT solution could be leveraging environmental data to boost product engagement and build memorable experiences, regardless of industry.

To succeed, product makers and experience designers need to find a way to combine demonstrated value, engagement prompts, and user-targeted information to help consumers adopt new behavior patterns and make healthier and safer everyday decisions. Let’s explore this more: click here.

According to Alastair Hood, CEO of Verdafero, Inc. of San Francisco, “IoT is not just a fad, it’s the operational underpinnings of a wireless support platform upon which mechanized and electronic systems operate.”

The fact is, IoT devices are already installed and running many systems found in society, from nuclear power plants to automation and control systems found not only in commercial and institutional buildings, but also  homes. Through the use of wireless IoT data, it’s possible to run a more efficient operation, especially in the area of energy consumption.

“Whether you’re a Security Integrator, an Electrical Contractor, or anyone else involved in construction and customer service in commercial structures, IoT is where it’s at. With Verdafero, you can charge a monthly fee through Iot monitoring and data analysis via our cloud-based SaaS (Software as a Service),” says Hood.

The future outlook of IoT technologies and applications | #TpromoCom #IoT #Integrators #Security | For over a decade we have witnessed a proliferation of internet-connected devices (bdtechtalks).

Nowadays, the number of internet-connected devices is estimated to be around 25 billion. Most of these are mainstream consumer devices that enable human communications and facilitate human-machine interactions. 

There is also a growing number of devices that are deployed in industrial environments to enable the collection of digital data about operational performance such as efficiency and quality. (read more)

Shadow IoT

Shadow IoT | #TpromoCom #IoT #ShadowIoT #CyberSecurity | A big security problem can become a bigger opportunity for channel pros who can detect, secure, and manage rogue smart devices connected to business networks. (James E. Gaskin

BUSINESSES HAVE STRUGGLED for decades with “shadow IT”—printers, laptops, smartphones, cloud services, and more being installed or subscribed to by users without permission or knowledge of an IT admin. In that same vein, users are now connecting smart devices of various kinds to the corporate network, giving rise to the term “shadow IoT.”

It’s a much bigger problem too, according to Zeus Kerravala, principal analyst at ZK Research, "because the scope has broadened. Things you never would have connected before are now connecting." As an example, he cites the Target breach from a few years ago. "The AC system was compromised, and it was on the same network as the point-of-sale system." When the hackers went through the AC system to the POS server, red flags theoretically should have gone up and the AC system should have been immediately quarantined.

IoT Makes Fire Detection Systems Smarter

IoT Makes Fire Detection Systems Smarter | #TpromoCom #IoT #FireAlarm | A combination of cloud computing, sensors, and an IoT gateway provide valuable intelligence for firefighters before they get to an emergency.

For years, first responders relied on paper maps to reach a fire in an apartment building or office. Incomplete information would delay firefighters from arriving at an emergency, and false alarms would set them on the wrong path altogether. Dispatchers in 911 centers would receive erroneous information on a problem with a smoke detector rather than a sprinkler switch.

“It gets to the point where you don't even trust the data,” said Dick Bauer, fire chief for the Killingworth Volunteer Fire Company in Killingworth, Connecticut.

Verdafero Simplifies Environmental Monitoring

Verdafero Simplifies Environmental Monitoring | #Verdafero #Utilities #IoT #Integrators | The need for real-time monitoring of environmental elements--such as water  level, temperature, relative humidity, air pressure, and others--is fundamental in a variety of applications. This includes industrial manufacturing, water control, energy conservation, museums involving delicate objects of antiquity, and many more.

Verdafero offers the means whereby System Integrators can easily monitor any number of conditions through IoT (Internet of Things) devices that collectively connect to one or more Dataloggers. The Datalogger, in turn, sends detailed time-sensitive data from each device to Verdafero's  Cloud-based analytical SaaS for careful monitoring. 

In short, what happens is Verdafero's processing center, using machine-learning, establishes what is "normal" so when something goes awry, the high-level, high-speed processing computers know about it. An alert is then sent to a security integrator's Central Monitoring Station (CMS) who in turn will act according to a predetermined menu of priorities, much as they already do for commercial clients with respect to video verification and general burglar and access control functions. 

Utility Monitoring

Another benefit of Verdafero's IoT Cloud-based SaaS is the ability to track energy usage on a Client's monthly basis, even real-time if needed. 

For example, using Verdafero, management of the Hilton Concord, a hotel located in the suburban community of Concord in the East Bay of San Francisco,  now has the ability to track, analyze and report on all of the hotel’s overhead utility expenses at the touch of a button. 

"Analyzing large amounts of electric, gas, water, waste data and Carbon Footprint for a large hospitality property on a monthly basis can be very challenging. Individual utilities have inconsistent billing periods and operate on varying billing cycles further complicating the reporting process. Add into the equation different utility providers supplying the same resource, it becomes an even greater challenge" ( 

Another example is the need to monitor the quality and quantity of electrical energy that feeds a  high-priced machine in manufacturing. By using Verdafero's SaaS, it's possible to detect problems well ahead of an actual breakdown, thus saving the client money in additional costly repairs. This allows the client to determine when it's the best time to disrupt production for routine maintenance.
