    For less than the 1% of the cost of the average American home, Americans can build the smart home infrastructure into their home that will prevent a pipe from ever freezing or bursting again. The infrastructure can built so that you will never be locked out again, so you never have to worry about leaving the garage door open, it will allow you to turn off the lights while you're on vacation, or turn down the heat while you are at work or send your loved ones a text message that your smoke alarm has gone off. This will make life more efficient, safer and reduce damage caused by preventable equipment failures. Any home can be transformed for less than 1% the average american home price, with no monthly subscription to a security system or telecom provider required. We explore the paradigm shift of how the critical mass of manufacturing of home automation devices has created a 20 fold reduction in the cost of automation devices and how building the infrastructure into new or remodeled homes will shape the next utility within 5 years.
    Function Is Taking a Whole New Form In the World of the Connected Home
    There was a time when most devices for the home looked homogenous. Product manufacturers, quite literally, did not think outside the box: a square or rectangular box. But times are changing, particularly in the world of connected devices and the "smart home." Design is increasingly becoming a major consideration in the connected device market, as manufacturers realize that their customers want products that reflect or complement a homeowner's individual taste and a home's design aesthetics. End-users want products that either look really sleek and cool, or are small enough to not stand out like a sore thumb (or box). They also want a lot of functionality to fit into that unobtrusive footprint. How has the increased emphasis on unobstrusive and aesthetically pleasing design changed the way connected devices and conceived - and manufactured?
    Making of Tesla SmartWatch apps
    When first Apple Watch SDK got released in November 2014, there was no clear understanding of its capabilities. To see how far it can go, our team decided to integrate the watch with Tesla car. After a big success of Tesla Apple Watch app(e.g. Mashable coverage ), we were asked by multiple community members including Google to perform similar research on Android Wear. This presentation is the story if making these 2 apps. The talk sheds the light on limitations of each platform, differences in philosophy, opportunities for designers and developers and the value watches can bring to the brand or business. Finally the talk will lead to a search for a perfect killer use case and thoughts on the future of wearable computing. Here's a presentation ( ) and original article ( ) , which will lay the ground for the talk. Obviously information will be updated as the platforms are getting new features.
    Benefits and Costs of Embedded SIMs in M2M Applications - John Nix, CEO, Vobal Technologies
    John Nix, CEO, Vobal Technologies
    To date, almost all commercially deployed M2M applications over mobile phone networks use the standard SIM card. However, installing and/or swapping out SIM cards is not economical for many potential M2M use cases. The Mobile industry has proposed standards for an embedded SIM. The M2M market is rapidly gaining momentum across a wide range of application secotrs. The use of machine to machine technologies is transforming the way organizations operate and creating new revenue opportunities
    Machine Data: Smart Network Analytics using Big Data Tools

    Ankur Gupta, General Manager, MetaScale
    Every device generates data. Any large company has multiple network devices generating data, such as Wi-Fi access points, network controllers, firewall controllers, network management systems, mobile devices and applications (collectively the Internet of Things).

    Hadoop can be used to store, extract and transform this network data for use by various business users to generate value for organizations, including:

    • Monitor and predict network infrastructure failures
    • Analyze performance of mobile applications
    • Gain insight into customers’ mobile device usage within guest network

    The ability to perform analytics and continuous reporting on this network data in-house is a big cost saver, and delivers added business intelligence capabilities for organizations. Learn the architecture, implementation and reporting approach that enables behavioral analysis, predictive analysis and performance analysis on large data sets from multiple network sources.
