In the 1990's, we started coming on line. In the 2000's, devices like the iPhone put the internet in our pockets, letting us stay connected anywhere and everywhere. The 2010s are the decade when the Internet crossed the barrier from people to things. Internet of Things technology -- usually referred to as the IoT -- allows devices to directly connect themselves to the network.

Whether you're looking to update an existing space or build a new one, this technology should be part of your plan.
