October 17, 2018 – Mouser Electronics Inc. and celebrity engineer Grant Imahara today released a new video introducing All Things IoT, the latest series in Mouser’s award-winning Empowering Innovation Together™ program.
In this new video, Imahara and Mouser delve into the Internet of Things (IoT) — the technological revolution that is reshaping our homes, workplaces and cities, while also fundamentally redefining how we think about communication, productivity and safety. The All Things IoT series is sponsored by Mouser’s valued suppliers Digi International, Maxim Integrated, Murata and TE Connectivity.
The video explores the complexity of an “All Things IoT” life, starting with how we could maximize every square inch of our homes and make them smarter. The video begins with an example in a smart tiny house, a trend gaining enormous popularity to combat urbanization’s effects on housing affordability and energy efficiency. Imahara and Mouser discover how home automation can provide more comfort in smaller spaces while lowering energy costs.
“IoT is poised to change how we interact with our environment, from small corners of our homes to massive urban spaces,” said Glenn Smith, President and CEO of Mouser Electronics, the global authorized distributor with the newest components. “These innovative technologies will make our lives easier and more comfortable while helping to significantly improve the environment on multiple levels.”
“IoT and Industrial IoT will be true game changers that save time and significant amounts of money for individuals and companies alike. I anticipate that most every home, office and city will be fully connected in our children’s lifetimes,” adds Imahara.
The All Things IoT video showcases Imahara’s visit with Gerald Kleyn from the Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) IoT Innovation Lab. Together, they look into the lab’s innovative case studies that examine how IoT is impacting our workplaces and cities as a whole. In the first example, a power company installs millions of smart meters in Houston to sense and track service and find potential threats to the system. The second case shows how a petrochemical company runs “The Refinery of the Future,” demonstrating increased efficiency and safety based on IoT enhancements.
