There is a rising need to be connected to 'Things' especially those of value to the owner. Altech Kenya offers Internet of Things (IoT) solutions that enables anyone to literally connect to 'everything' for every industry to foster innovation and productivity.

Internet of Things(IoT) is an ecosystem of connected devices that exchanges data over a wired or wireless network. These devices could be smartphones, computers, smart electric appliances, vehicles, cargo, bikes, smart office equipment or anything tagged with sensors.

Data generated by these devices is uploaded to the servers located in cloud or on-premise, where it is processed and analysed for the end-user to gain insights that help in decision making. The IoT ecosystem can be found in our homes and offices as they become Smart. It can also be seen in larger areas like gated communities, schools and cities.
