The Internet of Things (IoT) is fuelling innovation in nearly every part of our lives. Simply connecting the ‘things’ that were never connected before is leading to new data insights that translate into meaningful change.

With the potential of billions of new connected things bringing a tidal wave of new data, businesses want a better grasp of expected ROI, cost, and scalability, while IT managers struggle with integration, interoperability, and management concerns. Digi-Key’s objective is to provide its engineering community and suppliers a path to their solutions.

IoT is a mega technology trend that will not only be an endurance test for legacy systems but will also shape the fate of companies large and small in many different industries. Estimates are for 50 billion IoT connected devices by 2020 and 100 billion by 2025.

There are a multitude of companies and proposed network solutions. Digi-Key are committed to helping its customers navigate the plethora of choices and find the best solutions for their applications or use cases.

In an effort to accelerate IoT adoption by its customers, Digi-Key offers the latest and greatest IoT-relevant products and services in its Internet of Things (IoT) Resource Center. IoT products span many different categories, including hardware, software and cloud and connectivity services. Digi-Key are working hard to bring together and bundle these products and services in meaningful ways that integrate into more complete solutions.

Integrated solutions for Intelligent Buildings

  • Factory automation
  • Alarm systems
  • Smoke detectors

The term ‘intelligent buildings’ is continually evolving. What makes it all possible is an overlaying network (wired and wireless) that connects all building services which enables creation of a system that can monitor, analyse, and control building resources automatically.

This system can help improve building energy efficiency and space optimisation along with solving any connectivity issues that could arise. This in turn will help in providing improved comfort, higher productivity, dynamic space utilisation, and the all-encompassing connectivity that is expected by today’s workforce.
