The Internet of Things

Is Your Company ‘Internet of Things’ Ready?

The “Internet of Things” (IoT) refers to the network of physical objects – vehicles, buildings, appliances and so on – that are embedded with electronics, software, sensors and network connectivity so that they can collect and exchange data. If your company is looking to develop an IoT solution, we can help.

Here we look at the development issues that need to be considered.

Introduction to IoT

To most people, IoT means either smart watches that can monitor the wearer’s health, a television with PVR / web functionality, or a smart fridge that keeps an inventory of its contents. Whilst IoT makes it possible for smart devices to create a smart home, the reality is that the Internet of Things is poised to be much more than that, whilst also being largely invisible. Most of the components will probably be housed inside featureless boxes sitting in the utility closet, or systems-on-a chip added to a device’s circuit board, allowing it to talk to other devices.

IoT is different from the internet as most people understand it because it refers specifically to machine-to-machine communication (M2M), rather than computers-to-people,  and is being driven by the dynamic mobile devices market and advances in SOC (System-On-a Chip) solutions, sensors, memory, networking and power.

Where is IoT Being Used?

Real-world examples of IoT include:


Patients with atrial fibrillation have been able to buy individual devices for as little as $75. Subscriptions to cardiac monitoring services leverage this lower-cost collection of data by enabling more timely interventions in case of a cardiac event.


British Gas is expanding its IoT profile with the already established Hive, a smart meter able to control heating and hot water remotely. British Gas are planning on developing a new platform called Honeycomb to work alongside it, enabling integration with smart energy applications so that homeowners can switch to ‘holiday mode’ when the house is empty. This is essentially one platform linking numerous connectable devices via IoT sensors.

Other examples of current IoT development include:


All sorts of goods might benefit from an RFID tag with which the user, salesperson or serviceman could, say, check the warranty expiration, or have it invisibly personalised against loss or theft.

Geolocation Systems

Tracking systems used on vehicles can be fitted to any piece of movable property.


Equipped with a pedometer/heart rate module.

Access Control

Any sort of door, safe, cabinet etc. intended to control access will be equipped with three-factor authentication, with smart token, biometric and password capability.

CCTV Cameras

Private CCTV cameras will be able to analyse vehicle and pedestrian traffic, efficiency of municipal cleaning, road repair operations etc. – and some future version of Street View may allow anyone to take a look at every street, in real time and perhaps 3D virtual/extended reality.

Prescription Drugs

A prescription drug will come in a smart container that indicates when to take a pill or ask the doctor for a refill. The pill itself could itself become a diagnostic device, cheap enough to be disposable and able to take images or analyse body chemistry.

Autonomous Cars

Connected cars will benefit from IoT navigation devices and services as signs, traffic lights and the roads themselves are equipped with sensors and transmit real-time information. Future self-driving technologies will also be dependent on IoT.

IoT Issues


The Internet of Things looks likely to become as ubiquitous as electric power, cellular communication or GPS navigation within the next decade. 
The most likely development path for most aspects of IoT will be from the ground up – that is, companies with experience in their relevant field will decide to add digital presence to their operations, services or products. 
If in-house development is not an option, then hiring a competent software development company with the necessary skillset is vital to ensure project success.
