IoT Smoke Detector

For most people, the home smoke detector is the first Internet of Things IoT sensor/device they’ve ever come in contact with.

It may or may not CONNECT to a remote monitoring service over the Internet.

It COLLECTS air.

It ANALYZES the air looking for smoke using either an ionization chamber or photo-detector.

It ACTS on the insights derived from this analysis and sounds an alarm if smoke is detected. The battery on this device typically lasts a year before the annoying beeping sound begins.

Amazingly, this self-contained IoT device and analytics platform doesn’t require mythical AI powers to deliver value to the customer.

Don’t overthink it.
