Internet of Things

Hi all,Has anyone done any consultation around the 'Internet of Things' with tenants living in sheltered schemes, scheme managers that they are willing to share?I am looking at getting some questions together to find out what issues scheme managers face in their day to day support which IoT can support and also tenant engagement / participation with IoT technology and how it can support them. Any help to provide me with a baseline, something to work from would be much appreciated.ScottSee More
