Swedens largest newspaper Dagens Nyheter just revealed severe security breaches on buildings in Sweden not only apartment buildings but also police offices and other important builings have their systems open to internet.
The problem is that the building automation equipment is more and more sophisticated and unskilled personnel in combination with por design makes it hard to enforce any security.
End users need access to the washing booking systems o you open a web port on the firewall.
Operators need access to a ventilation unit.
Installers don’t know where to put the passwords so they leave the default ones.
In an average building today it is only a poorly configured internet modem/firewall that keeps the systems from being accessed from internet. And when several holes are drilled in it to gain access it is easy to gain access and control many of the systems.
I was invited to the EU project PLEEC to talk in Copenhagen on the Building green fair The program from the PLEEC projekt I spoke on the subject ”Technology driven energy efficiency are innovations the solution” There were some 40 persons present at the conference and the exhibition
The energy landscape is changing rapidly and we are demanding instant access to energy everywhere. IoT is needed in endpoints not only to measure for payment but also to interact with the grid managing peak loads.
I was thrilled to see the first formula E electric racing. This is reallay a fantastic trend! The evolution of electrical motors killing the old oil based ones. With clean renewables we will get everything over to electric.
We also see changes in motorcross and motorcycles my son is longing for this
Internet of Things is today huge, but as always it is hyped and includes almost every-Thing. Today we are back in the 1990’s creating business models based on a connected thing, letting the mainframe investigate and use our data. And for me as a customer I again, as it was in the 1990’s, end up with a bunch of incompatible systems, today called apps.
assistenza iq option When data is removed from siloed warehouses and is able to be identified and shared between products and services like it is within the current Internet architecture a true Internet of Things can emerge.
The explosion on apps on the phone is a result of innovation, based on the easy accessible sensors on the phone such as, camera, temperature, gps, gyro etc. Imagine the services that could be created if all IoT things was as easy to use as if they all were in the same phone? And in that case which phone?
We will always need integration and a way to interconnect system, IoT also needs that and no company based solution should win expecially if they own a phone. Please go for open solutions when you create your things, from my heart I think that XMPP-IoT is one of the more beautiful solutions.
