While the thermostat gets a lot of attention, the reality is home automation has an incredible amount of gadgets to manage, from refrigerators to doorbells. The question then is not what can be managed, but how can we manage everything? It’s not about the IoT device it’s about getting control over entire house no matter where you are. Your proximity and your ability to remotely manage blend together to create the home of the future. Are these capabilities transcending into the office building of the future and the way we work today?

How Smart Cities’ IoT Capabilities Are Transforming the Workplace
CB-02

IoT’s seemingly endless capabilities are uniting city planners and technology experts in a mission to transform metropolises around the world into smart, connected cities. One of the most prominent areas of daily life that will reap the benefits of connected cities technologies is the workplace. The building’s architecture will be able to ingest streaming data and sync up with employee’s calendars, adjusting their meeting schedules according to availability of workspaces. Heat maps will be able to analyze real time space utilization. The office will act as a data platform, collecting all necessary pieces of information from the building to create more secured and organized facilities, establishing an environment conducive to productivity. Smart offices will foster environments that are conducive to creative, innovative thinking by ridding employees of the need to spend time maintaining the functionality of the physical work space. Smaller companies that take advantage of smart building technologies faster than larger companies will present a competitive advantage to prospective employees, and will attract the next generation of the workforce, who will seek modern workplaces that employ innovative technologies to keep day-to-day business operations running smoothly.

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) needs to connect several devices to a common network enabling efficient, reliable data transfer. For most industrial settings, connecting sensors and equipment to the facility network is difficult and tedious; particularly in retrofit applications, where installing new wiring is troublesome, if not impossible. On the other hand, data shows that building owners who have upgraded their lighting infrastructure to wireless lighting controls are easily able to take advantage of additional IIoT opportunities and use the wireless lighting system as the backbone for enabling other IIoT technology applications.

Air quality, traffic congestion, water pollution or waste management are some problems that cities face everyday. More people live in cities than in rural areas and forecasts estimate this trend will not stop, expecting 75% of world population living in cities by 2050. Real-time data transformed into valuable information can help City Managers to make better decisions and give immediate response to city problems. Moreover, this information will help public authorities make cities more efficient. In this era of austerity, this is an obligation, even more if we are managing public money.

The latest version of Bluetooth provides an interesting blend of positioning and application that guides and tracks smart phone users to and within the storefront. How is this capability encouraging consumers to make purchases? Does knowing how a customer moves through a store add value to the transaction and analytics for the retailer? What lessons do we have from actual implementations?
