Smartphones, tablets, and other connected devices are changing how we interact with our surroundings. No longer are we bound by the physical limitations of our space, but we can now use apps to create a connected space that enhances our lifestyle and helps us be more productive.
The connected space and the various internet-enabled gadgets that contribute to it have recently received much attention and discussion. Luckily, having a detailed list of the apps that may be used inside each linked location would be of great use to you. It will be helpful once you understand the applications that will power and allow such environments to become more innovative.

We have investigated sensor systems, data trackers, digital screen applications, and other technologies that will make our workplaces, healthcare facilities and retail outlets far more intelligent than ever.
