OEMs in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) tend to look at the consumer IoT as less serious or important, seeing consumer IoT products as fancy toys, at best. After all, IIoT connectivity, which grew from machine-to-machine (M2M) technologies, has been around far longer than the consumer IoT. Ironically, the consumer IoT holds a number of important lessons that IIoT OEMs need to learn if they want to reap the full benefits of connectivity. Click here to learn more.
Three steps for embracing HVACaaS
HVAC as a Service is a win-win for both the customer and the manufacturer. So once you’ve decided to embrace it, how do you implement it. It can seem daunting to make fundamental changes to the way you do business. But, as we outline in this blog post, it does not have to be a painful change.
