Internet of Things (IoT) is a growing technology that transforms business processes into an enormous network of connected sensors, devices, smartphones and wearable devices. Apart from the corporate world, our daily activities also have a major influence on IoT.
Although IoT has an impact on every aspect of our life, let us take a closer look at IoT as it pertains to the upcoming joyful holiday season. As we are approaching Christmas, let us know how IoT solutions can help industries promote their IoT products and improve their consumer services!
Reduction of Energy and Cost
Most markets are very busy in the festive season. Sometimes, these markets can run for 13 to 15 hours a day. This results in large increases to energy costs for the employees. However, IoT-based devices remain easy-to-manage. Such devices can help companies and consumers in controlling the use of electrical equipment such as heater, lighting, chandeliers and refrigerators.
Energy consumption and costs can also be monitored with the use of IoT. For example, IoT-integrated fridges can inform users of drops in temperatures which can inform the user that it is not running as efficiently as it could be. If the drop in temperature is due to any technical issue, the prevention aspect to IoT technology can be easily utilized.
It’s clear to see how IoT helps with the running of Christmas markets. These types of systems don’t have to be expensive either: even an app that can lead to cost savings and reduced energy costs can still be more than beneficial for any businesses. In fact, even IoT can help you in sending and selecting gifts for loved ones and co-workers on Christmas.
