With so much focus on smart home and business technologies these days, it’s clear Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology will continue to drive smart device development. Every year we see new ways to make life more efficient and save money.
Automated retail, and especially, frictionless checkout, is the future of retail shopping. No one wants long checkout lines and retailers are looking for ways to cut costs and compete with Amazon.
Without closing process gaps that inhibit customer journeys, it’s becoming increasingly difficult for brick and mortar stores to compete with their eCommerce counterparts effectively. The long-term
The ongoing expansion of PoE-driven IoT networks worldwide comes with the addition of more and more power-hungry devices. Unfortunately, a PoE standard like IEEE 802.3at is only good enough for low-power equipment. It supplies up to 30W at the source over Ethernet, limiting the amount of power available for smart networks
In TechTarget’s IT Priorities Survey (2019), about 70% of respondents (IT experts) said they are adopting digital transformation. Nearly 50% of them said they were already undertaking formal projects toward digitization.
Also, the respondents answered questions about their intended budgetary allocations to achieve technological transformation. According to the survey, digitization budgets,
The internet connected everyone and now we’re connecting everything to the internet. Our ability to power low-voltage smart devices wirelessly is enabling Big Data to get even bigger — from smart homes to smart buildings to smart cities — But the big question is: What’s next? Does the target get bigger or is the next target ourselves?
Smart Cities: How PoE and IoT Intersect to Form IoP
Our future cities will be super-smart, powered by
Smart Power over Ethernet (PoE) lighting control systems are value-adding parts of most intelligent building systems today. That said, setting them up to industry standards while satisfying unique customer requirements is no walk in the park. Installers are grappling with a shrunk labor force, tight schedules, and building codes that vary from place to place. Here are seven ways to streamline your
If you want to know how to install a PoE camera, it’s not as simple as picking a place and bolting your PoE camera to the wall.
Lighting, weather, location, decoys and the purpose of the camera all play a part in the installation. Where you decide to install your PoE camera will either greatly increase your home security, or leave gaps where there shouldn’t be.

Office design has never been more fundamental to the success of a business. The constant change that new technologies bring to the workplace has opened unparalleled opportunities for design innovation and experimentation. This current trend toward office optimization is forecast to increase in 2019 and beyond.
The needs and expectations for a work environment are quite different from those in the
As of the spring of 2019, there were 2 virtually identical bills making their way through the Texas legislature: Senate Bill (SB) 1004 and House of Representative Bill (HB) 1141.
Backed by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IEBW), the goal of these bills was to classify any cabling circuit that supplies
What is the IEEE?
The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (known as the IEEE) is the largest technical professional organization in the world. With its corporate office located in New York City and its operations center in Piscataway, New Jersey, this enterprise has more than 423,000 members in over 160 countries.
The IEEE’s “objectives are the educational and technical advancement of electrical
