This article does do a good job in explaining how it is possible to send quality video through a wi-Fi linkup. The process is quite demanding of resources, it appears. Also, it costs a bit.
One thing that was never mentioned is the degree of signal security, which evidently there is no privacy here on WIFI. So the big question is why give up any thought of privacy, and possibly some signal quality, and spend more money, just to avoid needing to route some coaxial cable? Are that many folks really that lazy, or incompetent, that they are not able to run a bit of cable?
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
