What is new with IoT in 2016?

We are less than 2 weeks into the New Year and a lot is brewing. At the CES show in Las Vegas, IoT products and tech concepts have been making a big splash.  IoT in 2016 is about smarter devices, more connectivity, and then the need to manage and control and operate all these ‘things’ with the least amount of tools and expense.

Press Release: CytexOne Leverages Control4 Solutions to Bring the Benefits of IoT and Smart Home Technologies to Hotels and Smart Buildings

NEW YORK—Dec 9 2015 — The smart buildings market featuring the Internet of Things (IoT) is predicted to reach $181B in 2020,* driven by installations of automated lighting, fire detection, physical security, and HVAC systems. To make the vision a reality, CytexOne, creators of intelligent, connected environments is partnering with Control4 Corporation (NASDAQ:CTRL), a leading global provider of smart home solutions, to deliver smart hotels and smart buildings of the future in the New York Region.

The Benefits of the Cloud for Smart Buildings

At CytexOne we are always looking for strategic ways to make things better. We use the cloud to help our customers when we build and maintain smart businesses, smart homes and smart hospitality solutions.

We install management and monitoring systems that we can securely and remotely access and adjust. If a device or service fails we can often see it in real-time, and quickly respond. When we get a call from a client, we quickly pull up our discovery and management tools to review the system connection, device operations and overall system health. The best part is that we do the work in the speediest way to get things running again.

We are motivated to stay ahead of the curve. To that end, we constantly test new ideas and technology to  incorporate into our tried and true systems. 

How Best of Breed Works for You

Is your technology partner offering only a narrow range of single vendor and proprietary IoT products for your smart home, hotel or commercial building project?

This is a really big question. The fact is, many of the larger companies advertising robust smart technologies have plenty of financial incentive to do just that, because selling volume products from just one or two of the big vendors can result in much steeper discounts for them, keeping their costs and installation hours lower. Unfortunately, this age old practice of ‘big IT’ is usually at the expense of you, the customer!

Smart Homes. Smart People.

A trusted old saying,“Home is where the hearth is,” these days is taking on new meaning, as the family fireplace could very well be integrated with a remote control and tied to a thermostat using your in-home’s wireless network. Making it both warm and smart.

With the rise of connected technologies and the Internet of Things (IoT), homeowners, be it in apartments or large luxury residential spreads, are now investing in effective, convenient, and forward thinking technologies into their own homes. From automated lighting and controlled temperature, to smart locks, cameras and enhanced security systems, these technologies not only create simplicity and convenience, but also can cut household costs dramatically with energy savings.

But, the advantages go far beyond eye candy. One of biggest benefits of having a smart home pays off in the long run. Having an integrated system within a home adds tremendous value to its market worth.
