What is the difference between consumer IoT and industrial IoT?

Very different approaches to implementation. For consumer applications, the most important factors are often affordability and functionality, whereas for industrial applications, reliability and resistance to failures are more crucial. Consumer devices need to be easy to install and operate, while for industrial devices, installation and maintenance are distinct tasks that require dedicated resources and specialists. Consumer electronics often come as ready-made black box devices that solve a specific task, while industrial solutions more frequently involve large mechanisms that can be reconfigured to perform various tasks, or even expanded modularly to scale functionalities.

How to choose the right Consumer IoT devices?

Choose Consumer IoT devices that meet your specific needs, have strong security features, and are compatible with your existing technology, while considering factors like user-friendliness and long-term costs.

What are the best use cases for IoT in consumer electronics?

Voice assistants like Google Home and Alexa-powered speakers are very popular. The Google Nest smart thermostat is highly sought after. Various Wi-Fi plugs and Wi-Fi relays like Sonoff are also widely used. Wireless environmental sensors like the Aqara Zigbee sensors for temperature, humidity, light, water leakage, and more are quite popular. LED fixtures and LED bulbs are in high demand, as well as built-in smart light bulbs in different socket types.
