The market and the possibilities of digitally networked devices are growing at an enormous speed.
When we talk about the Internet of Things today it’s no longer about linked terminal devices, but a networked ecosystem.
A lot of our customers realized this early on and we helped them build products no one in that industry would have imagined being possible one day.
The transition of this billion-dollar market is unstoppable, and we a here to help our customers create innovative services, products, and business models that no one has seen before.
That's why, more than ten years ago, the Deutsche Telekom joined forces with us to make a great vision tangible for the first time: controlling your own home via the Internet using a smartphone. The idea of the first smart home app was not only to significantly increase comfort, energy efficiency, and security, but it also marked the beginning of a completely new era.
Long before saving energy was on the agenda, we had already developed business models for exactly this purpose. This resulted in groundbreaking business models such as KOFLER ENERGIES - the first registered trademark for energy saving. Since Georg Kofler presented this vision about ten years ago, IoT and engineering know-how have not only saved enormous amounts of CO2 and energy costs, but they have also become profitable. In the following years, we accompanied large companies such as Busch-Jäger, Jung, ELV, EQ3, Reichelt, as well as numerous energy suppliers in developing and successfully launching IoT and smart home products on the market.
However, connecting the Internet with homes was only the first step for us, which automatically led to further questions like: „What will happen if we connect all devices via the Internet and support them with unlimited computing power?
“The idea for the IoT cloud was born. IBM asked us to turn this vision into reality. Only a short time later, at IFA, MWC, and CES in Las Vegas, we proudly presented the first „cloud-based smart home systems.
“All this happened immediately after IBM had parted with its laptop division and thus abandoned its hardware strategy. In this way we actively shaped the future together.
However, that was no reason for us to rest on our laurels. We thought that in the future every device, every machine and every sensor would communicate with each other - and that this would grow far beyond the application area of the Smart home. That’s why Europe’s leading smart home provider Conrad cooperated with us and thus became one of the leading dealers to becoming the leading IOT provider. Together we paved the way for one of the new core products: Conrad Maker Factory.
And our story does not end here. We are currently working on our accumulated knowledge and experience to develop a concept that will (hopefully) continue the future of IoT.
LET'S SHAPE THE FUTURE OF IOT, TOGETHER
