NAPERVILLE, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 04/29/14 -- Grid Connect (gridconnect.com), a manufacturer and distributor of embedded networking products, entered the rapidly-growing Internet of Things (IoT) industry with the launch of ConnectSense (connectsense.com), a line of wireless sensors to automate home and business. ConnectSense sensors will be showcased at Sensors Expo, Booth 517, June 24-26, in Rosemont, Ill.
ConnectSense is a platform of low-cost, cloud-based Wi-Fi 802.11b/g wireless sensors that monitor changes in the user's environment and then sends notifications via phone call, email, text or Tweet. Sensors are available to monitor temperature, humidity, water, motion, security and light.
ConnectSense devices transmit alerts using Wi-Fi, the ubiquitous wireless technology found in business offices and homes. ConnectSense allows users to leverage their existing Wi-Fi network without the need to purchase any additional hardware or gateways. Users set alert scenarios using ConnectSense.com, a cloud-based interface that can be accessed via a PC, Mac, tablet, phone, or any other device with a web browser.
Unlike other monitoring systems that require expensive installations and recurring monthly monitoring fees, ConnectSense is a Do It Yourself (DIY) system that does not require monitoring fees.
Sensors are portable and can be battery or wall powered, allowing them to be used in places without traditional electrical outlets, such as boats and greenhouses.
ConnectSense is a new member of IPSO Alliance, a global collaborative forum of leading IoT companies, and the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC), a new organization to further development, adoption and wide-spread use of interconnected machines, intelligent analytics and people.
Grid Connect, an ISO 9001:2008 company, is a leading manufacturer and distributor of products that enable the Internet of Things. The company's custom engineering services and attentive customer support ensure that all networking technology products sold by Grid Connect work to customer specifications. In-stock items usually ship the same day, and all products come with a no-risk, 30-day money back guarantee. Grid Connect also can be found on Twitter @GridConnect and on LinkedIn at www.linkedin.com/company/grid-connect.
For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Weiner, Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., discussed the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conducte...
