The Internet of Things—both business-focused and consumer-focused—continues to grow. Simply put, the IoT is a network of devices embedded with sensors and software that allow them to collect and exchange data. These devices can include everything from home appliances to automobiles to entire buildings.
Many of us already enjoy the benefits of the IoT in our home and work lives through such everyday tools as our smartphones and fitness trackers. But the IoT is poised to broadly expand into applications that could revolutionize the ways we live and work.
Here, 16 members of Forbes Technology Council discuss their choices for the most exciting new and potential IoT devices and why they may make such a big impact.Read the rest of the article.

Keep Data Center Facilities Running Strong 24/7 with the IoT
To say the role of a data center or server room manager is multifaceted may be an understatement. Overall, they oversee IT issues—computer and server operations, vast amounts of data, services, applications, and data security. Environmental and facility security concerns are high on their to-do lists.
Every part of the job is about high uptime.
The Internet of Things (IoT) can streamline the management of most of these responsibilities. Power consumption, facility and equipment temperatures, humidity, HVAC system performance, plumbing, cooling systems, physical access, and much more can all be monitored on an IoT platform or network of IoT devices.
See how an enterprise significantly lowered the risk of outages, mitigated environmental hazards, and saved thousands of dollars by avoiding temperature, humidity, and water damage to its IT infrastructure housed in server rooms and a data center.Get our data center management use case.

Take the One-Minute Absolute Pressure (Vacuum) Meter Survey
As you know, Monnit offers various atmospheric gauge meters—our ALTA® 50, 300, 750, and 3,000 pounds per square in gauge (PSIG) Pressure Meters—so you can monitor gas, liquid, or vapor supply lines.
But do you need to measure absolute, negative, or vacuum pressure?
We’re exploring adding a 0–30 pounds per square inch absolute (PSIA) to our line of ALTA® Pressure Meters.
Absolute pressure sensors measure vacuum pressures. At sea level, an absolute pressure meter measures 14.7 PSIA. From the gauge perspective and at sea level, this sensor can measure -14.7 to 15.3 PSIG. Here are some features of the proposed ALTA 0–30 PSIA Meter:
- Standard Resolution: 0.1 PSI
- Uncalibrated: ± 2% of reading + 1.05% full scale (FS)
- Calibrated: ± 0.5% of reading + 0.5% FS
We’d like to hear your thoughts about possibly adding this sensor to our lineup. Please tell us in this brief one-minute Monnit Survey.

Enhance Lab Monitoring with AI Pattern Recognition
Everyone seems to be discussing how artificial intelligence (AI) can be integrated into everything. In the IoT realm, many innovators combine the abilities of AI with real-time and trend data analysis from IoT monitoring.
Jean Fallacara, an engineer in biotechnology specializing in virtual and augmented reality from MIT, is an expert in cold storage with integrated monitoring systems. His article on LabManager.com shares how AI pattern recognition can assist lab equipment monitoring and optimization.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is gaining a stronger foothold in biomedical and research applications. Hospitals use AI to predict patient readmission and assist in diagnostic procedures. Research labs use it in analyzing image data and finding connections between published papers.
The underlying mechanism that makes modern AI so useful in these contexts is its ability to learn patterns from data. Because of its ability to pick up on patterns faster than humans—and even detect patterns imperceptible to humans—AI is ideal for synthesizing, calculating, and extrapolating data, making it the optimal tool for predicting future events. AI can accurately determine the probability of certain events occurring given specific patterns in a dataset.
Labs can reap huge benefits from this capability, especially in the realm of asset management, with intelligent equipment monitoring and usage optimization. Machines in the lab inevitably break down, either due to wear or misuse. In most cases, telltale signs can appear before a major malfunction occurs. But some of these signs are not so obvious, and this is where AI can help out.Continue reading this article.
