The Easy Button for IoT

I am sure that I don’t have to tell you how the Internet of Things (IoT) is revolutionizing our world.  Stop by any electronics retailer and you will find smart TVs, smart lights, smart refrigerators, and smart thermostats.  Open up the brochure for a new car and you will find more space dedicated to intelligent sensors than horsepower.   Tour a modern manufacturing plant and you will quickly discover that nearly every machine used in production has been equipped with an IP address.  From the consumer to the enterprise, IoT is the driving force of innovation.

Of course, there is a dark side to this revolutionary technology.  It’s not all that easy.  As a consumer, it’s not a big deal to have one smart dryer that sends a text message when your clothes are dry.  It’s also pretty simple to have your refrigerator email you a photo of its contents.  In these cases, it’s just you and your machine.
