Internet of Things


What is the Internet of Things?

The Internet of Things (IoT) is all about connecting everyday objects with the internet, which become smart because of this.

Objects can be defined as smart, if they consist of sensors, software systems or data memories, which enable a data exchange with one or multiple other smart devices. This structure enables data to be available at the right time in the right place.



The home of the future

tado° makes your home environment smart. The focus is on proceedings and systems, which enables a smart connection and control of devices in someone’s own home - the result is an intelligent IoT-networked building.
