Description: “If I knew four years ago what I know now, I would probably have saved myself a million dollars”. Robin Mysell and his team at ATF Services are at the cutting edge of IoT product development, marketing a range of consumer devices that are taking full advantage of the full range of IoT technologies.
Four years ago the business provided temporary fencing and height safety services but made a strategic decision to move into high tech video surveillance solutions. The company recently launched a high-profile activity sensor called AbiBird in the competitive “aging in place” market, but the product Mysell is most proud of is a multi-function security device that he says is “truly intelligent”.
In this presentation, Mysell will relate the IoT journey his company has been on, delivering some of the first IoT products based on a national LPWAN network. He will discuss what technology and business model choices that had to be considered and the development methodologies employed. Building on his “if I knew four years ago what I know now”, he will pass on lessons learned for others looking to develop IoT based products or bespoke solutions for industrial settings.
