Welcome to the newest edition of the IoTFriday segment at thethings.iO. Today, we are trying to answer some questions we have been receiving asking why one should open their devices on API.
Remember that the Internet of Things is a bottom-up technology wave, much like the Web was some years ago. Most of the innovation and new features are coming from makers, hackers and new startups. Opening your things’ APIs allows you to build new features on the top of your things. That means more functionalities for you, which in turn leads to a smarter device and finally brings you more revenue due to third party people.
What do you think? Feel free to send us your feedback and comments!
