What are your devices saying about you?

 

In our recent blog, Ryan Ng wrote about new Smart Home connected devices being developed and sold in 2018. There are many new and innovative ways to improve our lives using technology appearing in stores and on crowd funding platforms such as Kickstarter every day. The majority of these devices interact with mobile apps, whether they are sending notifications or allow the user to control functionality, these devices often require a hub to connect the devices to the wider internet. Smart speakers and thermostats are now being used as hubs to connect other smart home appliances. Many of… Continue reading

Copper Horse’s Ryan Ng takes a look at some of the smart home technology that has taken in his interest in the first part of the year.

 

A few months into 2018 and we are already seeing a lot of new smart home technology, some of which are great ideas and useful devices, but others which are questionable.

The Internet of $1600 Mousetraps…

 

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

How do you standardise the Internet of Tigers?

 

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
