Internet of Things

Welcome to the

Internet of Things

Internet of Things refers to a world where physical and virtual objects network and communicate with each other via the internet, enabling them to autonomously complete a wide range of owner-defined tasks.
Gabler’s Dictionary of Economics

Interconnecting smart devices means taking “things” beyond their ordinary range of day-to-day use, thereby unlocking an entire range of new opportunities in the process. These days, many products are internet-enabled, however, with their interconnectivity being mostly limited to their product category.

Conrad Connect is an innovative approach of trying to push system boundaries like these, acting as a platform for making data collected by smart devices from across a variety of product categories freely available. In this context, products continue to be used according to specs (e. g. are still controlled by apps provided by manufacturers), however, the data collected or generated by these devices during their everyday tasks are also accessible to other products. This enables devices to connect and interact across system boundaries, opening up a whole new world of opportunities in the process.

Yes, it’s still early days, and Conrad Connect continues to be a work in progress. However, and since the platform has now entered beta status, why not join us on our journey and play an active role in helping us take our vision to the next level?

Ganz einfach Produkte hinzufügen

Adding products is totally straightforward

Conrad Connect already supports a lot of products, with numbers steadily increasing. Setting up a data link is a piece of cake: all you need is your product account information. What’s more, you don’t need any physical items to use Conrad Connect as the platform works equally well with a range of internet-based service providers.

Erstellen Sie Ihr eigenes Dashboard

Design your own dashboard

Looking for a way to display the details of all your items on one page? Want to choose your very own page layout, formats, colours and product arrangements in the process? No prob. That’s why we came up with customisable dashboards.

Definieren, wie und wann Sie informiert werden

Select the way you get notified

Do you want to receive notifications per email? On Twitter? Via push or text message? Once a day? Twice? On weekends only? Or solely in the case that there happens to be heavy snowfall on March 13 just before sunrise, and that the average temperature reading for the month has been reaching 11 degree Celsius, but only if you’ve already been able to jog a total of 35 miles that month...? The possibilities are endless.

Produkte über System-grenzen hinweg verknüpfen

Interconnecting products across system boundaries

That’s really clever: a GUI tool allows you to define a set of infinitely complex „rules“ that interconnect products and services by different manufacturers and internet-based service providers. Check it out now!
