TronicsZone has many ready or near-ready to use solutions in this domain. Our goal is to actively build the IP & product base pertaining to the Internet of Things which include (but not limited to):
We have ready or near-ready solutions based on technologies such as GSM/3G/4G, WIFI, Bluetooth, Ethernet. We also work with partners who can provide the IoT cloud software & app platforms that can be customized to particular needs.
The growth of IoT products is expected to be exponential. There are many readily available hardware platforms that are IoT enabled such as Raspberry Pi, Arduino, Intel Edison & so on. It appears to be deceptively easy for an engineer to put together an IoT based device after spending some time getting accustomed to them. While such a solution can solve the purpose of one-off prototyping or as a proof of concept, one would quickly realize that it is still far from a successful commercial deployment nor production ready. It may be too expensive to manufacture in numbers & may not be scalable in terms of cost as well as manufacturing readiness, power consumption, size etc. It may be lacking the security features to protect the firmware from being copied & used by others.
This is where we come in. We know our stuff & understand the caveats involved with IoT products. We focus on building scalable & cost efficient hardware that can be taken to mass production easily.
Taking the most popular IoT use case as example – a temperature & humidity monitor built using IoT “ready” device such as a Raspberry Pi 2 or 3 may easily cost in excess or $50 in large quantities with all the accessories needed for this application. Whereas a solution designed by TronicsZone may cost well below $10 is volumes, and at the same time having the huge advantage of scalability in terms of being mass manufacture-able, cost efficient, tiny in size as compared to the ready solution.
Please get in touch with us to learn how we can collaborate together to bring the next successful product into the market.
PS: We are not against the ready solutions & may even use them in our own proof of concept prototypes. They are the reason why IoT has gained so much traction in so little time.
