In short, smart places & things is a concept developed by Collyra that integrates from the Internet of things (IoT) and is based on the development of sensor hardware and software technology to create a ready-to-use platform of devices capable of measuring with any sensor and connecting to others in their environment.
The goal behind this new term smart places & things is to make not only devices, but places as well, communicate with each other over the internet or by any other means and therefore, become more intelligent and independent without the need to define them in a certain communication protocol.
Basically, smart places & things is listening to any kind of object or thing, connecting it and sending that information from the physical to the digital world. Then, all this information is stored, processed and analyzed, allowing decisions, performance or actions to be improved.
This requires the use of numerous technologies that we are currently developing.
