  • If you build it, they will come

    Posted: 27th June 2016

    The greatest challenge facing the Connected Home and consumer IoT markets, we are often told, is 'end consumer take up'. Industry luminaries trot out a message that has become drearily familiar to delegates at the myriad conferences that take place around the world every few weeks - 'it's just a matter of time'; 'the next 12 months will see mass market adoption'; 'it's about finding the killer use case or the right business model'; 'subscription based plans are aligned with consumer demand; or conversely a barrier to take up'; 'consumers need educating'; 'we need to make our solutions/products more intuitive' and so on. If you are anywhere near this corner of the market this will all doubtless be familiar, you may even agree with some or all of these plausible explanations for a market that has been nascent for an uncomfortably long time.  Read more...

  • Smart Connected Home was predicted in Back to the Future - Oct 21st 2015

    Posted: 21st October 2015

    The movie, Back to the Future predicted many things that we would be doing with our lives today, flying cars and hover-boards have not made it to the market just yet but many of the images in the home are close, for example Marty McFly video-calling a colleague looks very similar to Skype or FaceTime.

    However, another thing that the movie did get right is the Smart Connected home. When Jennifer is taken to her future home by the police, they mention that she should have the lights programmed to turn on when she comes home. Today the Smart home is a reality. IoT has made it simple to “automate” your home; you can programme it to do what you need with the Intamac Rules Engine, heating control, lighting control and passive monitoring, to provide safety and comfort for your family.

  • Worried about executing an IoT strategy? Top 10 things manufacturers must consider.

    Posted: 7th November 2016

    While the opportunities for embracing IoT are incredibly exciting, it is essential that manufacturers ask the right questions from the beginning when identifying and executing an IoT strategy says Mark Lee, CCO of Intamac, an IoT enabler and innovator with over a decade of experience in this sector.

    Mark continues:

    “IoT is a relatively new sector where best practices around things like security are constantly evolving and certainly not widely adopted across the industry. This means manufacturers have to be extremely careful when developing their IoT strategy and selecting an IoT technology partner. Asking important questions about security, reliability and customer experience from the beginning is essential in order to avoid potentially disastrous consequences in the future. Read more...

  • Radical change needed for security industry to fulfil IoT potential

    Posted: 4th June 2015

    Mark Lee, CCO of Intamac, an IoT enabler and innovator with over a decade of experience in this sector, believes security companies shouldn’t disregard the IoT trend due to concerns over security and should instead look to the numerous opportunities it offers, not least the exciting new revenue streams this technology presents.

    Service-based business model

    The adoption of any new technology requires a certain amount of agility; however incorporating IoT into any company’s offering requires a step change in the business model if it is to succeed. IoT places control in the hands of the consumer, allowing them to remotely monitor and control devices such as their security system. This is highly disruptive in an industry that has previously relied on a subscription-based business model, where consumers sign up to have their security system monitored.  Read more...

  • Can IoT help the elderly stay safe at home for longer?

    Posted: 1st June 2015

    A major challenge for society in the near future will be meeting the needs of an aging population, set to rise by 23% from 2010 to 2018, with the 65+ population expected to reach 16.9 million by 2035. The combined pressures of this demographic change, reduced health and social care budgets and the desire of individuals to lead independent lives for longer will drive the need for more personalised health programmes based on home-centric care and IoT will have a big part to play in this movement says Mark Lee, Chief Commercial Officer at Intamac, an IoT enabler and innovator, with over a decade of experience in the IoT sector.
