Turn it ON and OFF, and possibly dim it, what else?
The controller though has the task of deciding what to do.
And as an aside, shouldn't the SOCKET be given an IP address rather than the light-bulb? Why the need to identify WHAT ROOM is the light bulb screwed?
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.
