As you all are aware Internet of Things or IoT lets you connect multiple devices within a network. All the connected device are either wireless transmitters or receivers of low-frequency energy. As a subset of internet it lets you connect two or more devices for data transmission and communication.

By operating with one smart device(usually smartphone), you could remotely control any other connected device. Often IoT app solution in smartphones and tablets are used for pairing with other devices.

Why organizations restrict themselves from adopting IoT technology

Despite, IoT led solutions depict a rosy picture, there are several roadblocks that pull away organizations from large scale adoption of IoT technology. Listed below are some of them.

  1. Once installed, mobile applications used for IoT technology are difficult to update. As the IoT led app solutions integrate multiple products, any alteration to the app is akin to change in the IoT device in itself.
  1. Any change to the IoT mobile app will require changes at the design level of the app. This means any change will have a rippling effect on the entire IoT network system.
  1. Developing complex IoT apps call for highly qualified and skilled software developers either in-house or outsourced. It means you need to set up a learning center to train and produce class engineers.
  1. As IoT technology constitutes many interconnected devices, any component upgradation needs to be reflected in multiple components. Often changes are incorporated in the mobile application, in remote cloud storage and in other IoT components plus subsystems.
  1. Some connected IoT products that require multiple operations, should be  programmed to incorporate all the features. Users sometimes may have to scroll through multiple menu layers just to carry out a simple operation or task. When there are IoT objects with 50+ properties, object state change and control for each property must be incorporated in the IoT apps.
  1. As IoT components are connected via cloud, estimating exact storage space  required for separate IoT components is difficult to predict.
  1. Good UI and an exceptional operating experience are the prime necessity of any mobile application. It is imperative for app developers to enable its users in faster navigation and updating of apps. Only apps which enhance user experience to the maximum allure maximum consumers. The mobile apps that support IoT effect on the entire system’s connectivity and therefore must be seldom updated.
  1. Security is one of the prime most concern of the smartphone users that are part of the IoT subsystem. Moreover, It may include securing through access control, authentication, setting up of secure sessions and encryption of user and the device details.
  1. Mobile app development continue to expand year after year. To incorporate new features that enhances your experience with the connected products, you need to update apps on a regular basis. Also whenever app updates are made, care must be taken to ensure that they don’t impact the connected objects of IoT systems.

Building a great IoT mobile app is neither quick nor easy. However through considerable planning, allotment of enough budget and resources; IoT app development could prove out to be immensely beneficial for the organizations.
