IoT (Internet Of Things) has already started being seen at our homes and will soon enter our workplaces too. The Internet of Things will provide many benefits when implemented at offices, however, there are some key points which you should need to know when doing so.
**Note: The image is free to use but do give us a mention
1. Privacy is of utmost importance
People are not at all comfortable discussing their personal traits at their workplaces, it was a lot more comfortable for them at their homes. Hence, IoT users need to keep control over the specific information they share in a connected space.
2. Use authorized identities to secure things
Managing identities within a connection space helps in tailoring experiences based on whether the employee is authorized for that process or not. Different levels of permissions can be granted to users for maintaining security and confidentiality at your workplace. For instance, if large part of your business becomes automated, you would like to be sure that only authorized users make changes to the system.
3. Power Backup plan
Consider a scenario, that you your workplace Wi-Fi goes down. You would still be interested in performing a certain task after this process, like opening up the supply closets. It is more complicated to manage backend systems on connected devices, but this is what the challenge is all about. IoT could be designed to offer these capabilities to you.
4. Common dashboard to add new devices
Data at offices increases multifold compared to data you get from individual homes. This data comes from thousands of different employees, multiple devices, and huge offices. A common dashboard is the must to add new devices and new identity tracking. This should happen on a regular basis.
Internet of Things at workplaces is soon going to become a reality. As was seen lately in the IoT at the CES this year which was a clear indication that IT executives are going to have IoT on top of their priority list. Utilizing the limitless potential that IoT can offer, one must keep in mind the above mentioned points and IoT has a lot to offer to the society.
