Internet of Things: How it Works
The Internet of Things is an ever-growing network of individual devices that connect to the internet with a unique IP address. These devices include mobile phones, wearables, geo-trackers, smart thermostats and home appliances, and more. Each device transfers data over the internet without the need for human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction. In other words, these devices are independent and automatic.
IoT devices make it possible to automate business processes, reach people in more ways and in more places, and generate valuable data to inform business decisions.
IoT Empowers Business
As time goes on, it’s clear that the IoT will disrupt countless businesses in industries like manufacturing, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, retail and more. To solidify this point, a survey conducted by HP revealed there will be more than one trillion devices in the IoT ecosystem in 2025, creating a 80 billion-dollar market.
These devices bridge the gap between the physical and digital worlds, helping humans experience more efficiency, quality and productivity in their daily lives. Businesses that offer IoT-connected solutions set themselves up for long-term success.
Use Case: Sous Vide Supreme
For amateur chefs, the term ‘sous vide’ probably fits into their daily lexicon. For everyone else, sous vide is a cooking method in which food is vacuum-sealed in a cooking bag and then heated to very precise temperatures, yielding perfect results every time.
Many regard the sous vide cooker as the crock pot for the culinary elite.
Sous Vide Supreme Implementation
Eades, the creators of the Sous Vide Supreme, came to SevenTablets hoping to create a mobile app that would allow their customers to control their cookers remotely.
SevenTablets produced a Sous Vide Supreme app that:
- Allows users to start and power off their cookers from remote locations
- Adjust temperature settings while the machine is in use
- Share recipes with the Sous Vide Supreme community
