There's no denying that our world is getting more connected every day. The Internet of Things (IoT) is a growing presence in all our lives — and a potential opportunity for app developers who want to create programs that can affect our comfort, convenience and habits.
Wve Labs has partnered with many organizations to develop smarter IoT apps. We provide end-to-end expertise and comprehensive service every step of the way. We are fast, efficient and skilled in deploying the latest technologies for the greatest benefit to your organization — let us help you make your next great idea a reality.
The "Internet of Things" is a nebulous term referring to "smart" hardware products and the connections between them. In other words, it's everything that's connected to the Internet that isn't a computer or mobile device. This includes smart thermostats and appliances, lighting, healthcare products — even smart cars.
The benefit of smart technology is obvious — the ability to remotely control a wide range of devices from a single platform is highly convenient. Beyond convenience, however, the Internet of Things leverages the countless data points these devices record and uses them to refine performance, track trends over time and ultimately run more efficiently.
IoT devices typically have minimal hardware, low-power processors and simplified operating systems. Any IoT application that interacts directly with the device itself must accommodate those technical limitations. More likely, however, your IoT app will be working with the data that these devices produce. To do so effectively, your app must have advanced analytic capabilities, while translating that analysis into a format that's easy for users to understand. What's more, with any app that accesses potentially sensitive data, it's essential that appropriate security measures are in place to maintain privacy.
There are many platforms for building an IoT app — beginning with one of them can streamline the development process and often make the finished product more effective. It's also possible to build an IoT app from the ground up, but it takes additional expertise.
Either way, it's important to work with a developer that knows what they're doing.
• Wve Labs is a Los Angeles-based mobile and web app developer. As a forward-thinking company, we saw the potential of the IoT early and invested in the team and the technology necessary to design innovative, creative apps that look and work great.
• We help our clients solve the problems that are preventing them from bringing their vision to life. This can include technical challenges, security challenges, UX/UI challenges, design challenges or anything else that affects the functionality and attractiveness of an app.
• Unlike a lot of IoT app developers, we are a true partner to the companies we work with. We help with research, design, development and marketing. More importantly, we'll take the time to get to know you and your needs, and tailor our services accordingly.
