A Look at IoT Automation
The total Internet of Things (IoT) connected devices is projected to amount to 30.9 billion units worldwide by 2025. With so many devices connecting to the internet every single day, the drive for IoT automation is prevalent.
The primary drive for IoT automation is to significantly reduce operating expenditures when machines, sensors, and actuators become internet-enabled. It’s the next huge leap in productivity because there are major advantages to be derived from the acquisition and organization of previously unthinkable amounts of data. (Automation World).
IoT automation offers many benefits for a business, including:
- Increased uptime
