Who wants to reboot their thermostat? Garage door opener?  That’s where we’re heading because most Internet of Things (IoT)  vendors have taken a “Honey, I shrunk the computer” design approach.  That’s wrong. The danger is that the commonly used Internet architecture, that was designed in the minicomputer era, doesn’t translate well to IoT. The reason is cost.
Fortunately cloud computing enables us to reduce overall system cost and complexity.  First, endpoints can remain simple which means more reliable products, and more be secure.  Second, and more importantly, the Cloud enables  low cost and easy to install products.  Both of which are necessary for the internet of things mass market to grow rapidly.  We’ll explore real world applications enabled a cloud based IoT architecture.
