5 Billion Wireless Sensing Internet of Things Devices by 2019
ON World’s recently published report set provides in-depth analysis on the technology and adoption trends for wireless sensor networking (WSN) and the Internet of Things (IoT) markets including Smart Homes & Buildings, Smart Energy, Smart Lighting, Smart Industries and Smart Health & Fitness.
San Diego, CA, December 19, 2013— Wirelessly connected Internet of Things solutions are changing the way people live and interact with their environment, according to global technology research firm ON World. Internet of Things solutions are the result of decades of development of low power wireless radios, energy-efficient power sources as well as MEMS and nanosensors. These developments and the meteoric rise of smart devices and cloud based software and apps are transforming nearly every aspect of our lives.
“The Internet of Things is here,” said Mareca Hatler, ON World’s research director. “There are thousands of applications today using millions of wireless sensing devices that create life enhancing changes in energy usage, security and safety, health and wellness, smart lighting, building management and optimized industrial processes.”
By 2019, ON World predicts that the majority of wireless sensing and control devices will be Internet connected and cumulative shipments between 2010 and 2019 will reach 5 billion worldwide. A few of the key markets for wireless Internet of Things innovations include the following:
Smart Homes & Buildings
As competition intensifies among Smart Home cloud platform providers and home service providers, new entrants and disruptive technologies are emerging. Examples include Arrayent and Ayla Networks with low-cost, scalable Internet connectivity platforms as well as an increasing number of startups targeting the rapidly growing Do-It-Yourself market such as Smart Things, Revolv, ConnectSense and Netatmo. Industry groups are forming to create open standards for Smart Home data exchange such as the UPnP+ Initiative and a consortium by ABB, Bosch, Cisco and LG.
Meanwhile, hundreds of Home Area Network systems have emerged targeting consumers, energy companies and home service providers with advanced energy efficiency and awareness solutions. Some of the latest developments include Comcast’s energy saving service by EcoFactor, Alarm.com’s acquisition of EnergyHub and rebate programs from dozens of utilities to purchase Nest’s popular Learning Thermostat.
Smart Energy milestones and achievements include the completion of ZigBee Smart Energy 2.0, formation of the Bluetooth SIG’s Smart Energy Study Group and the Wi-SUN Alliance’s successful interoperability testing of IEEE 802.15.4g.
Health & Wellness
ON World’s recently published, “Wireless Internet of Things” report set includes seven reports: 802.15 & ZigBee, IP Smart Object Networks, Health & Wellness Wireless Sensor Networks, Smart Building Wireless Sensor Networks, Smart Home Sensor Networks, Smart Wireless Lighting and Industrial Wireless Sensor Networks.
