Internet of Things
How it Works
The Internet of Things is a network of internet-connected objects able to collect and exchange data. It is commonly abbreviated to IoT. To put it simply, we have "devices" that sense and collect data and send the data to the Internet over a dedicated Internet of Things network.
When ZiggyTec was researching the best way to automate live utility meter readings, we investigated many technologies including GSM (mobile phone) technology. It became clear, very quickly, that IoT is an incredible technology that is ideal for live utility measurement which is more cost-effective and quicker to implement than other technologies.
