Expedite innovation process with customised IoT modules

Weaved Inc. has come up with a way to get any IoT design started, and fast. It not only supplies the cloud connectivity and turn-key software needed for an IoT device, but also customises hardware modules that do almost anything, from 360 cameras to controlling sprinkler systems, stated the company.

"What we are announcing today at CES is that one of our partners, Jemtek, a billion dollar original design maker (ODM) in Taiwan that has built the vast majority of product branded Linksys, Belkin and many others, is building for us a line of products for the Internet of Things: lighting products, smart plugs, web cameras, routers and more coming in 2015," said Ryo Koyama, CEO at Weaved. "In addition to being pre-certified products that are ready to go, they all have our cloud-based Internet of Things services built right into them."

If you have a great idea for a IoT device, Weaved will work with you to have it manufactured by Jentek Technology Co. Ltd in Taipei, Taiwan, with your logo, your name, your form factor and colour, with Weaved's cloud-connectivity built-in for instant-on operation according to Koyama.

"With us you just need to define the hardware side of your Internet of Things device, and rather than having to build-out your own connectivity, we provide that service in the cloud," Koyama told us.

Say you have a great IoT idea. Rather than have it crowdfunded on Kickstarter and think you're going to have a product out in six months, which would really be a challenge, since you will need to do the custom engineering, find a factory to produce it, get it ready for production, then build out the cloud connectivity it requires.

"These are not the core competencies that every company necessarily has ready to go, and you are definitely not going to be able to build them up in six months," Koyama stated.
