“Internet of Things” (IoT), or in some cases also referred to as “Machine to Machine” (M2M) communication, is well underway - after all, microprocessors are to be found in all manner of “things”, domestic appliances, credit cards, cars, passports, CCTV cameras in your city, the elevator in your building, and many more. Add the powerful ingredient of Internet connectivity - or the efficient and affordable ability to be read by an Internet connected device- mixed with applications and services that make use of the data gathered by this vastly expanded network, and the next technology revolution becomes visible on the horizon.

Finding and Fixing Blind Spots in Enterprise IoT Security

Article | April 9, 2020

The Internet of Things has been a breakthrough, and adoption rates keep exploding. There are possibly over 20 billion IoT devices in the world, and by 2025, there may have been 75 billion. Even though there has been a rise in smart home devices, most IoT devices are found in businesses, industries, and healthcare. The benefits are overwhelming: from enabling automation of repetitive tasks (both simple and complex), to real-time data insights and analytics, IoT devices make workers more productive, improve customer experience, and reduce operating costs. However, with the many benefits of IoT devices come serious disadvantages, chief of which is security. Here are some reasons why IoT devices have such serious security risks:

How AI and IoT Provide Value in Construction

Article | April 9, 2020

Internet of Things (IoT) sensors predominantly provide visibility to an operating stack – enabling access to real-time and accurate operational data. Laying analysis on top of that data produces dashboards and other visual representations but artificial intelligence (AI) extends this further by harnessing the data streams to train models and identify patterns. Observations can then be made by a computer much like a human analyst could but at tremendous speed and scale. AI makes it possible to anticipate and predict events in a robust and scalable way. This can create huge business advantages. In this article, we’ll look at applications of AI and IoT in construction.

Smart Home Technologies: Zigbee, Z-Wave, Thread, and Dotdot

Article | April 9, 2020

If you own smart home products like SmartThings or Nest, you may be familiar with some of the technologies behind them. Network protocols like Zigbee and Z-Wave dominate the industry, while Thread, a younger network standard, is gaining headway as a strong contender in the battle for market share. Although this may seem like your typical rivalry between industry leaders, the competitive landscape is more complicated than selecting one over another.
