Once again about the Internet of things.

It's no secret that the Internet of Things is quite an interesting market segment. It is still in its infancy, and the first less workable solutions are just beginning to appear. For example, REDMOND smart devices that we have already written about. In the modern world, Internet of Things devices are quite interesting solutions designed primarily to automate the routine and do it simply conveniently and stylishly.

The main problem with the Internet of Things is its fragmentation. That is, each company that produces a certain device writes its own interface for it with its own application, and the user eventually accumulates a whole huge folder on the smartphone, which you will agree is not very convenient.

Specialists see 3 possible ways out

  1. Creating a single standard for the Internet of things, so that in addition to its program there is some kind of common shell, operating system, etc. to control all devices.
  2. A large software giant will release its shell under which everyone will have to write their programs and create products with compatible hardware (and along the way, most likely, all those devices that are sold now will no longer be needed by anyone.)
  3. Automate your devices so that they work for years without requiring intervention.

Do not forget that today many such devices are created by enthusiasts on the basis of various Kickstarter sites Indiegogo and the like. Therefore, it is too early to talk about cooperation at the device level.

Intel and others

Intel is doing a lot of work with the Internet of things trying to develop its software product, but it seems to some that it is taking an enterprise-oriented rather than a user-centric approach. Take a look at the Internet today, anyone with no knowledge of programming can create and promote their site. As well as writing programs for mobile devices has become much easier. If a similar shell is created for the world of IoT solutions, then of course most users will use it. Just imagine a single standard, for example, wi-fi a single programming environment. You can order any of the thousands of devices. From thermostats to coffee makers. And connect them to your system how can you buy an "android smartphone" any company without worrying that you will not be able to use it just like any other.

And then and only then will we be able to talk about the Internet of things market.
