The IoT allows objects to be sensed and controlled remotely across network infrastructure, creating opportunities for improved efficiency, accuracy and economic benefit.

Each thing is uniquely identifiable through its embedded computing system but can interoperate within the existing Internet infrastructure. The IoT is directly related to applications such as smart grids, intelligent transportation and smart cities. Schreder Owlet IoT City Management System, which is based on Open Standards, can interact with larger smart city platforms.

Owlet IoT is not only a high performing remote lighting management system, it can also exchange data or interoperate with neighboring systems such as traffic management sensors, environmental monitoring systems or security devices. One of the fundamentals of IoT (Internet of Things) is that the devices intended to be connected to a larger network communication platform have to be addressable’ in a similar way.

The structure of the address which is attributed to this latest generation of luminaire controllers managed by Owlet IoT is called IPv6. This method of addressing devices can generate an almost unlimited number of unique combinations to connect non-traditional components to the Internet or computer network. Owlet IoT is not a standalone `silo type’ system, but future oriented and open to 3rd party integration.
