Do you think an app could provide the entrence to Internet of Things success? IoT solutions based on an app save on hardware costs and offer some very interesting additional opportunities that a solution with only wireless sensors cannot match, as e.g. optional interaction with a smartphone user.
Telecom providers and IoT sensor vendors promote the "traditional" idea of wireless sensors directly connected to the Telecom network. The extra plans and special LoRA or NB-IoT sensors are their bread and butter.
Phasefour develops apps, or IoT apps, that do their work in the backgroundusing the rich set of sensors on board of the smertphone, or eventually connecting, via Bluetooth with sensors in the neighborhoud, en that send data using the data connection of the smartphone itself.
The role of the smartphone user can be passive, - the user might not notice anything - , or active, - in certain situations the user might add data , or acts based on local and backend intelligence. Too much possible scenarios to describe in short and possibly interesting for many new business opportinities or ways to reduce operating costs. We do small and big projects.
