    • The smart cities
      planned by the government will use nearly 1.6 billion of connected things or
      Internet of Things (IoT) by 2016, an increase of 39 per cent from 2015, top
      research agency Gartner said in a report.

    • “Smart
      commercial buildings will be the highest user of IoT until 2017, after which
      smart homes will take the lead with just over 1 billion connected things in
      2018,” said Gartner’s Research Vice-President Bettina Tratz-Ryan.
    •  
    • Commercial real
      estate benefits greatly from IoT implementation as it creates a unified view of
      facilities management, as well as advanced service operations through the
      collection of data and insights from a multitude of sensors, the
      Press Trust of India said in a report.
    •  
    • “Especially in
      large sites, such as industrial zones, office parks, shopping malls, airports
      or seaports, IoT can help reduce the cost of energy, spatial management and
      building maintenance by up to 30 per cent,” Tratz-Ryan said.
    •  
    • The business
      applications that are fuelling the growth of IoT in commercial buildings are
      handled through building information management systems that drive operations
      management, especially around energy efficiency and user-centric service
      environments, Gartner said.
    •  
    • “In 2016,
      commercial security cameras and webcams as well as indoor LEDs will drive total
      growth, representing 24 per cent of the IoT market for smart cities,” she
      said.
    •  
    • Tratz-Ryan further
      said IoT deployment in commercial buildings will continue to grow at a rapid
      pace over the next few years, and is on pace to reach just over 1 billion in
      2018.
    •  
    • “Incentives into
      the deployment of IoT in commercial real estate will fuel its
      development,” she said.
    •  
    • In smart homes, the
      consumer IoT applications that are fuelling growth are smart TVs, smart set-top
      boxes, smart bulbs and various home automation tools such as smart thermostats,
      home security systems and kitchen appliances, the
      PTI report said.
    •  
    • “The growing
      maturity of smart home platforms through an ecosystem of home appliances,
      infotainment and home sensors will mean that smart home investments overtake
      those of commercial buildings in 2018,” Tratz-Ryan added.
    •  
    • Gartner further noted
      that smart homes will represent 21 per cent of total IoT use in smart cities in
      2016, and will record the highest increase over the next five years.
