The term "Internet of Things" (IoT) has been bandied about for years, but, rather than living in the homes of the future, most of us are still living in homes of the past. But recent advances in technology have put the connected home within reach-a home where the technology we depend on daily is integrated seamlessly throughout the house. The smartphone rang in a new era of technology, enabling consumers to essentially carry a personal computer in their pockets. With the latest advances in power management and sensing, we move to the next level as we eye a broad new set of applications that can benefit from today's advanced technologies. IDT's webinar, "The Connected Home-Is it Closer Than You Think?" will focus on these two technologies-sensors and wireless power-that are key to making the seamlessly connected home a reality. Attendees will learn about where the technology stands today, where it's headed tomorrow, and the numerous applications that will benefit from their integration.
