Developing IoT devices? Four costly security mistakes and how to avoid them
IoT brings with it so much opportunity, but it also increases risk and widens the attack surface of your product and even your organisation.
A manufacturer of home safety products wanted a bridge to connect a range of wireless home sensors to a common gateway that provided a back connection to an IP network. The devices utilised proprietary wireless connectivity to communicate with each other and the requirement was to bridge this communication to an IP connection that communicated back to a cloud platform.
To specify and develop the hardware and software solution that integrated with an existing cloud platform. This included production of prototypes including the enclosure design and compliance testing.
Utilising our knowledge of set-top box and router solutions in the home we developed an appropriate product definition and implemented both the hardware and software to achieve the required functionality. Bridging the proprietary wireless protocols to an IP connected solution in the cloud provided the required data connectivity.
Designed for manufacture and scale, we delivered an end-to-end connected platform communicated through a low-cost gateway to the cloud
By working closely with the customer and bringing our knowledge of hardware, software and radio communication development we integrated the specified components into a system. We ensured that the resultant system complied with the customer’s proprietary wireless standard and that the data communication met their requirements.
We delivered for the client an end-to-end connected communications platform consisting of wireless home devices that communicated through a low-cost gateway to the cloud. The product was designed for manufacture and scalable.
We’re a technology consulting company helping clients deliver connected devices and systems.
