Note: In July of 2008, Stanley Convergent Security Solutions, Inc. [a subsidiary of Stanley Black & Decker, Inc. (NYSE: SWK) (f/k/a The Stanley Works)] headquartered in Naperville, Illinois, purchased all shares and equity of Sonitrol Corporation, Inc. along with the rights of the Sonitrol brand as the Sonitrol franchisor. The acquisition included a Sonitrol corporate customer base of approximately 55,000 accounts. The acquisition of Sonitrol Corporation by Stanley CSS did not include the independent Sonitrol franchise businesses. These businesses act independently, being solely owned and operated as Sonitrol franchises across North America. The independent franchises provide Sonitrol security products and solutions, including Sonitrol access control and Sonitrol audio verification intrusion protection in their designated territories. Although Stanley CSS and its franchise partners are separate entities, we all share the common goal of promoting and providing Sonitrol products and services across North America. In some markets Stanley CSS operates its own corporately owned branch offices; but in locations where an authorized Sonitrol franchise also operates – you can only purchase Sonitrol products and services through the franchise.
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
