The Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical devices that send and receive data using software analysis, connected using the Internet. Security of this data is paramount. The risks are real. Technology is key, but security also requires actions on your part.

Cisco predicts that by 2021…



The Internet of Things will account for 847 zettabytes of data generated by people, machines and “things” each year.



92% of workloads will be processed in the Cloud.



Data processing in on-premise servers will fall from 51% to 32%.

Questions to Ask Ourselves

Before we can get a handle on comfort and energy usage, we need to ask ourselves a few questions:

How is my building doing?

Is it getting better or worse?

Where are my opportunities to save money?

Have my previous improvements paid off?
