Internet of things
…so awesomely easy a kid could use it…
Devices are getting more and more connected. Everything these days seems to have a SIM card inside or some other mean of communication. Consumer electronics grows extremely fast. A recent survey forecasted that 20 Billion devices until will be available in 2020. This puts pressure on carriers and bandwidth.
So why are we here… BinOcular is a solution to support hardware manufacturers with a aaS solution for gadgets on the internet with fully open source clients. The BinOcular server solution is able to create lookup services and connect hardware devices through a open API. Your gadget will simply make a connection to a known domain name such as device.binocular.se and log in with its specific login details and then via a SQL database or a noSQL database report data. If you have a client of a known type (arduino/raspberry pi or similar) you can simply download code to get you going very easy.
When your user wants to access the device or a bundle of devices they simply got to the same domain and uses the same open API to retrieve data. With this solution ti doesn’t matter what kind of device it is. It can be a web browser, mobile phone or another connected device.
Simply, Internet of things the Open Source way.

The growth of IoT is amazing
In a late survey done by Gartner Group,
The processing, sensing and communications semiconductor device portion of the Internet of Things (IoT) will be a rapidly growing segment of the total semiconductor market, growing 36.2 percent in 2015, compared with the overall semiconductor market growth of 5.7 percent, according to Gartner, Inc. Processing will be the largest revenue contributor to the IoT ”things” semiconductor device forecast, at $7.58 billion in 2015, while sensors will see the strongest growth, with 47.5 percent growth in 2015.
The processing semiconductor device segment consists of microcontrollers and embedded processors, while the sensing semiconductor segment includes optical and nonoptical sensors.

The possibilities are endless
Music playersA simple music player needs some kind of connection in order to play streaming music. Bu what if you need to change song or manage songlists. Wouldn’t it be great if you could connect your home stereo from work or when traveling? You could edit songlists on your local device, change speaker configuration or start music at home when device fail and whoever is home (grandma or grandpa) doesn’t understand how it works.
Wireless communicationThere are a bunch of different ways of communication to/from electronic devices. When we say Internet of things we often assume a carrier connection an a mandatory SIM card. Yes, but don’t forget about local WLAN’s, tethered devices and cable connections.
Energy efficiencyOne very fast growing area for internet of things is energy control. Imagine that you can both get feedback on how cold/warm it is in your home, asset or office building. Imagine that you can connect to those devices very simple and also by using an app or a browser.
GPS locatorsKnowing someones physical location is good and a good way of showing another user scenario for a SaaS solution like BinOcular. Barnkollen in Sweden is one way for kids not old enough to have their own mobile phone. Other areas of usage is theft resolving of bikes, cars and other expensive equipment.
