Has it really got this bad? We were a bit surprised as many were to see the “connected mouse trap” retailing at $1600 the other day. It seems that internet of things solutions are just going a bit crazy. I can’t see many companies being duped into purchasing such a system when the value proposition is so low.

The system requires a hub which needs to be connected to somebody’s network – I guess either the company or mobile network and at the end of the day somebody will physically have to go… Continue reading
Copper Horse CEO, David Rogers discusses some of the challenges for development of the Internet of Things and how to enable participation in standardisation from all across the world.
A couple of months ago, I was present at a meeting in Geneva where the “Internet of Tigers” was discussed. The topic was raised by an African country – tigers are of course resident in Asia, although some do live on reserves in Africa, such as at Tiger Canyons in the Karoo, South Africa. Tracking of endangered species is a critical need for the world and a number… Continue reading

We’re extremely pleased that Copper Horse was given the “Most Innovative Startup” Award at Smart IoT London event for the Motion Project (now called Extrasensory). The project is aimed at increasing situational awareness by detecting and alerting to motion where that data would normally be lost. This could be doors, drawers – pretty much anything that can move. We’re still in the early phases but we have functioning prototypes and are dealing with a huge amount of interest from potential investors.
We also plan to change the way that people think about IoT and… Continue reading
Copper Horse wrote the original IoT security strategy for the GSMA and this is now starting to come to fruition with the publication of a great set of IoT Security Guidelines which will help implementers and solutions providers make global IoT more secure. Watch our CEO and other IoT security experts have to say about the work.
We are excited to announce that Copper Horse will be exhibiting at Mobile World Congress 2016 at the Grand FIRA in Barcelona 22-25 February 2016. Come and visit us in Hall 7 at Stand 7C70e.

Copper Horse’s Mobile Security Intern, April Baracho looks at some data privacy issues for the Internet of Things in homes:
Smart homes are changing the way we live. More efficient power consumption and connected appliances that communicate with one another are increasingly becoming a reality in many homes. From door locks to thermostats to remote controlled lighting, every aspect of the way in which we interact with home appliances is changing. The key question: Is it for the better?
In many ways, our lives could be much easier. Waking up in a smart home might very likely… Continue reading
Copper Horse’s Mobile Security Intern, April Baracho discusses challenges and methods of setting up secure and usable associations for IoT devices that have no visible user interface.
We are living in a world that is getting to be increasingly interconnected, an environment best described as the ‘Internet of Things’. Central to the existence and proliferation of the IoT is the automation of mundane tasks. This in turn depends on the ability of devices to communicate with each other with minimal human interaction. In order to achieve this, any device joining the network needs to be enrolled onto it.… Continue reading
