The Internet of Things is everywhere. Whether it is a refrigerator, thermostat, video camera or another device, these technologies are now linked to the cloud to provide a level of capabilities that streamline and simplify daily life for both consumer and corporations. Estimates are that more than 26 billion devices will be connected by the year 2020. Companies developing products will need partners that can understand and deliver products that are IoT-enabled.
IoT is more than an App
Companies developing and IoT device may think it’s as simple as creating the device, then hiring a company to design the app that connects to it. IoT is far more complicated than just an app. The Internet of Things combines devices into a smart ecosystem where one device’s action impacts or triggers another. This occurs through the combination of the device with connected data through the cloud and secure access to that data via a website, app or some other interface. That data joins the ecosystem of other IoT devices to create intelligent, automated actions, like a thermostat activating because the smart car is heading home. IoT also offers machine learning, which is how an IoT thermostat “learns” and adjusts when the heat or a/c comes on.
How Can Resolution Help?
App development companies can range from a few people working in a garage writing code to an offshore development site creating programs for hundreds of different clients and applications. Because Resolution is an expert in product development, we have full development processes for software and hardware development. Much different than a small-app development house that is often off-shore or minimally staffed. Resolution has fully-staffed development laboratories with state of the art hardware and software equipment and tools to perform stateside product development.
Our expertise is facilitating the movement of data to an ecosystem so that these devices can communicate and act together as an entity. We have, for the last decade, have been developing IoT-like solutions for the life science, medical and military markets. Our capabilities include hardware, software, embedded and app development as well as connectivity to cellular, wireless, Bluetooth and other networks.
Quality and Security are Critical
An IoT-enabled device needs to meet high standards of quality in development and security in data management. An app developer simply can’t deliver, but this is a key focus for Resolution.
With proven successes combining hardware, software, and data, Resolution Development is ready to help you navigate the complexities of IoT and to implement robust, IoT enabled technologies that create a competitive advantage for your products.
If you have a device that needs to be IoT-enabled or have begun developing a product that will be part of the IoT ecosystem, call Resolution.
