The internet of things continues to grow and grow with more and more “things” connected in our world.
An article on Forbes.com says in 2008, there were already more objects connected than people – and that was 8 years ago. Gartner says 6.4 billion connected “things” will have been used in 2016, which is up 30 percent from 2015.
With the internet of things growing, we need to make sure our homes, hospitals, hotels, offices, schools, etc. are keeping up.
DRiY was created by Ark Labs as one of the “things” in the internet of things because the water monitoring device is connected to the internet so it can alert users when something isn’t quite right with water usage.
Forbes says the IoT will connect many of the devices we have in our homes, from smart thermostats to smart fridges, so smart water monitoring devices are the next step.
Billions of people have smart phones that connect them to their homes and offices, and since water plays a very large role in our daily lives, it only makes sense for the growing internet of things to connect us to our water.
You have to know your water to save your water and prevent water damage. By connecting the dots with the way we do water, we are saving water and money, one drop at a time – there’s no better way to do that than through the internet of things with a device like DRiY.
Forbes says that some people predict that by 2020, the number of Internet-connected things will reach or even exceed 50 billion. DRiY is one of those 50 billion things connected to the internet that we will need in our major hospitals, hotels, schools, and even homes.
