FAQ
How to speed up the IoT application development process?

The proven way to accelerate IoT app development is to entrust the development process to professionals with enough expertise and skills to create projects of different scopes and complexity. They feature technical know-how in creating IoT applications and can deliver the standard project in a few weeks. If you’re creating an app for the Internet of Things with your in-house team, closing the skills gap with employee onboarding is possible. It can significantly optimize the workflow without sacrificing the quality of your product.

How to reduce the cost of building an IoT application?

To optimize the custom IoT application design cost, choose the most relevant SoC and consider optimal battery requirements and BoM cost. Additionally, professional IoT app developers recommend reviewing manufacturing costs and understanding the non-recurring expenses of your end product, which can significantly reduce the final product’s price.

How long does it take to develop an IoT app?

The overall IoT app development time depends on different factors, including the project’s complexity and scope, the functions it includes, the number of developers, and the expertise required. On average, an IoT app idea with a standard set of functionality is delivered within three to six months. However, in some cases, it’s also possible to get a simple MVP product delivered in as fast as one month.

Can frameworks be used to develop IoT apps?

The IoT solutions are getting more complex and functional, transforming IoT app frameworks from optional solutions to must-have tools. Many IoT application frameworks of varying approaches are designed to manage the complexities of IoT app development. While some provide a structure to work inside, others offer enterprise-level data analysis and control.

Can IoT apps be developed for both Android and iOS platforms?

Certainly, IoT apps can be developed for both Android and iOS platforms using different programming languages and development frameworks.

What security aspects are important to consider when developing IoT applications?

Our checklist on how to develop IoT applications that deliver top-level security includes encryption, device authentication, and regular OTA updates.

What examples of successful projects in the field of IoT application development can be mentioned?

2Smart Standalone, 2Smart Cloud, Propuskator, Ezlo, and MyBox are just several successful IoT applications developed by WebbyLab. If you want to create an IoT app that truly stands out, reach out to us for a quick consultation.
