Modular LED lamps with IoT

The lighting industry is undergoing a revolution driven by LED technology. LED is is now the dominant lighting technology for all new buildings and retrofits. Yet today, only a small percentage of LED fixtures are supplied with IoT sensors installed. It was estimated 140 million LED fixtures were expected to be distributed in the United

IoT and embedded systems products 2018

This post is here to comments links and news on intetesting IoT products I see. I plan to post mainly information on new products, but sometimes I can post also information on older but what I see still relevat IoT products. I might also post here some embedded systems products that are not directly related

In 2017, 26.5% of U.S. households already had some type of smart home technology in use; within five years that percentage is expected to double.  While connected devices often contain proprietary components, a

Getting Started with IoT Security with Threat Modeling

https://www.denimgroup.com/resources/blog/2017/11/getting-started-with-iot-security-with-threat-modeling/?lipi=urn%3Ali%3Apage%3Ad_flagship3_pulse_read%3BtGhVz%2BNYQRiSgJC%2Bt%2FEWQQ%3D%3D The security of IoT systems can be exceptionally complex because of the large number of components, potentially extensive attack surface, and the interactions between different parts of the system. Threat modeling is a great starting point to understand the risks associated with IoT systems. The challenge with this trend is that IoT devices are just computers

Arduino Blog » Linux support comes to Arduino Create

https://blog.arduino.cc/2017/11/03/linux-support-comes-to-arduino-create/ This looks interesting:  update to the Arduino Create web platform will enable development and deployment of IoT applications with integrated cloud services on Linux-based devices.  Users will be able to program their Linux boards as if they were regular Arduinos. Multiple Arduino programs can run simultaneously on a Linux board and programs can communicate
