2019 IoT Integration Awards
The IoT Integration Awards bring to light the connected products that make our lives better and our jobs easier.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical devices, vehicles, home appliances, and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and connectivity which enables these things to connect and exchange data. This creates opportunities for more direct integration of the physical world into computer-based systems, resulting in efficiency improvements, economic benefits, and reduced human intervention.
According to market researcher Gartner, 8.4 billion networked devices were in use last year; 31 percent more than last year. By 2020, estimates say it will already be 20.4 billion devices. The global market value of IoT is projected to reach $7.1 trillion by 2020.
Unlike any other media company, Emerald Expositions is uniquely positioned to offer the broadest exposure possible for the IoT Integration Award entries with our three targeted websites for professionals who sell, install and connect IoT devices in homes and businesses worldwide (CEPro.com, CommercialIntegrator.com and SecuritySales.com).
Here's what our editors have to say about IoT.
"From thermostats to surveillance cameras to appliances to whole-house control systems... and everything in between... the Internet of Things (IoT) is becoming ubiquitous in the home. Full connectivity and communication among all devices is the new norm that integrators must handle for their demanding consumer customer base. The IoT Integration Awards will help residential integration companies identify the IoT devices they need to recommend and install," says Jason Knott, editor-in-chief of CE Pro.
Security Sales & Integration
"Internet-enabled electronic devices and systems are flooding the marketplace, and security is no exception. In fact, often security -- both physical in the form of networked centralized hubs and satellite components and logical in the form of cybersecurity -- is at the very heart of the IoT revolution. This awards program is unique and exciting in that it salutes those products that are taking the convergence of connected physical and logical security to the next level," says Scott Goldfine, editor-in-chief of Security Sales & Integration.
"Internet of Things has already become important in commercial spaces as customers increasingly have an expectation of intuitive design. Meanwhile, as customers get used to walking into a meeting room or hotel room and having the lights, shades, and multimedia react to their presence, it's easy to see that it will become increasingly important. The products recognized in this space will help commercial integrators elevate their IoT offerings," says Tom LeBlanc, editor-in-chief of Commercial Integrator.
