I’m totally obsessed with IoT, connectivity and automation. I’ve always envisioned a dream home that is awakened or shut down by my physical or digital presence. I want music to play as I enter a room, lights to change hues based on time of day and to be able to control every aspect with the push of an app. This vision used to be a farfetched science fiction fantasy — but, not anymore. Today’s applications paired with smart devices has made th
Soon, customers will expect connectivity in everything. Businesses will to equip their products and their offices, stores, and warehouses to keep up.
BMW’s Vice President of Digital Life Services and Engineering Thom Brenner took the stage today at Microsoft Build to detail the first stage of its ambitious IoT project that aims to deliver “ultimate smart device connectivity that’s perfectly integrated into your digital lifestyle.”
The stats are impressive: Smart-home tech has already invaded 21 percent of all U.S. homes, and another 36 percent are considered viable customers.So says a recent Strategy Analytics study, demonstrating what many retailers already know — a growing number of consumers are curious and eager to give home connectivity a go. What is perhaps most encouraging is that this readiness crosses both the age and gender divides, according to the study. Green Nesters (married families with multiple smartphones and tablets) represent 16 percent of that 36 percent most likely to purchase smart-home tech. Impressers — mostly younger women in higher-income homes — encompass 13 percent, while millennial males without children represent 7 percent.
LG recently took to the stage during MWC 2016, where they introduced their LG G5 flagship smartphone along with many accessories. The G5 features a modular design itself, so many accessories can be attached to its bottom. Yet, other accessories like the 360 Cam or the Rolling Bot are controlled wirelessly with the smartphone, so it is clear that LG is focusing on the interoperability between all of these devices. Now, LG Uplus, a South Korean cellular carrier owned by LG, has announced a few smart-home products to further increase connectivity around their new devices.
The buzz of the Internet of Things has been getting louder, but what is this IoT? The Internet of Things or IoT is the network of physical objects such as devices, vehicles, buildings and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and network connectivity enabling these objects to collect and exchange data.So now that all these objects can talk to each other, so what’s the big deal? Well, as an example, would it be pleasant if our rooms were at the right temperature when we walk into our house? It can with the IoT.

It will be difficult to recognize our most advanced cities — after all, there will be neither wrecking balls nor cement mixers crowding the urban streets. However, AT&T (NYSE:T) and other companies behind the Internet of Things are making American cities a lot smarter. Recently, AT&T launched an initiative to further facilitate the transition — a transition worth $1.7 trillion according to research from McKinsey.Testing, testing, 1, 2, 3Already working to increase connectivity within cities, AT&T has created a new framework that provides IoT solutions for city managers. The company will be piloting it in three locations: Atlanta, Chicago, and Dallas. Partnering with Cisco Systems, Qualcomm, IBM, Intel, and General Electric, AT&T is offering the cities the ability to address infrastructure needs, such as remote monitoring of roads, bridges, and buildings; citizen needs, such as real-time notifications of street lights and parking meters; transportation needs, such as real-time updates of train and bus arrival times; and public safety needs, such as gunfire detection technology for police officers.
