This year SECTRON has started to cooperate with a company Fastest from Ostrava, to develop a new platform for its Smart Home and Smart City devices.
What is it all about?
Cloud is a thing that appears almost everywhere in today’s world of the Internet and IoT. So, what is exactly this “cloud”? Cloud is any service that is based on shared resources that use internet communication. This means that the data is sent to a safe place on the Internet, where it’s distributed and processed by the connected resources (servers, computers, etc.). The processed data is then sent to the customer.
What does this mean for the customer?
The customer connects their devices to the cloud with simple activation and now, the world of new possibilities opens to them. The first and most important asset is the ability to manage your devices from anywhere. Since the data is now on the Internet, customers can access it from anywhere as long as they have connectivity. Of course, it may not only display data, but the customer can enter new data to configure and operate the device remotely. Thanks to access to the cloud, the device can also update its firmware and thus apply security patches and new features that could only be otherwise updated by sending the device to the manufacturer where the new firmware was uploaded.
