David Bolton for ConnectedWorld: App developers who are already invested in the Internet of Things are more likely to build apps for the smart home over other usages. A recent report by VisionMobile [PDF] said that out of the 4.5 million people identified as IoT developers in 2015, 1.4 million were focused on smart home apps. According to VisionMobile’s IoT Megatrends 2016 report, there are seven distinct IoT areas that app developers work in—smart home, retail, industrial, wearables, smart city, medical and connected car—with the opportunities offered by connected homes a clear favorite. Retail IoT apps, wearables and industrial versions attract around one million app developers each, while the connected car is of interest to 700,000 people. People have become used to the concept of IoT and recent research by Gartner said that there could be as many as 700 million smart homes by 2020. Cont'd...
The end game is connected solutions that make our lives easier, safer and more efficient. Device makers and service providers need to look at the BIG picture, not just the components and the individual machines and devices.
Smart locks, Baby Monitors, home routers, appliances, printers, etc. have all been hacked with documentation of those hacks.
For companies to reach their destiny, the consumer technology industry needs standards that CTA and other standards groups can "negotiate" for consumers. Companies can then focus on products that help make the digital transition easier and faster.
If your company wants to stake a claim with the Internet of Things, you first need to develop a distinctive "way to play"-a clear value proposition that you can offer customers. This should be consistent with your enterprise's overall capabilities: the things you do best when you go to market, aligned with most or all of the products and services you sell.
Notwithstanding the exciting possibilities of internet connected fridges, there are some cases of fridge that have security vulnerabilities & should be harsh lesson for all Internet of Things (IoT) vendors.
By Stacey Higginbotham for Fortune: The industry has stalled. But while consumers are scratching their heads, property and casualty insurers have been testing connected doorbells, water sensors, smoke detectors and dozens of other devices. On the life insurance side, wearables and other devices are also in the R&D labs, although that’s less of a focus for this story, since consumers have tended to adopt wearables more readily than the connected home concept. On the P&C side, State Farm is launching a program that will give an all-in one connected security device called the Canary to first responders soon. Last month, American Family created an innovative program with connected doorbell provider Ring, that offered customers a discount if they bought the device, but also would reimburse your deductible if someone managed to break in. American Family also subsidizes the cost of a Nest Protect smoke alarm. USAA has backed a connected car startup called Automatic, while Progressive PGR 0.10% has already teamed up with Zubie, another connected car device maker, to deliver discounts on auto insurance for drivers who share data. For insurance firms, the decision to back these startups can range from helping to prevent losses, which can boost profits, and helping make the insurer a more positive and proactive presence in people’s lives. Ryan Ryst, director of innovation at American Family, says that in creating programs around connected devices, an insurance company has a chance to remind people that insurers are acting to protect policy holders.

Joseph Bernstein for BuzzFeed News: Sense is a smart router combined with software that sits on top of and monitors all of the connected devices in your house. It reads all the traffic coming into those devices in real time and analyzes it using F-Secure’s cloud security network, “an analytics engine and information repository for malware and a variety of other digital threats.” When Sense detects unwanted or malicious traffic — say, a botnet trying to connect to your smart television — it simply blocks it. By drawing all of the IoT devices in the home into one protected network, Sense presents a remarkably elegant solution to a problem the cybersecurity world has been worrying about for a long time.
