Everything You Need To Know About IoT in Social Housing

The history of the Internet of Things in social housing is not a particularly long one. Its rise can primarily be attributed to the significant advances that have been made in low power, high-efficiency consumer electronics. The rise of the Alexa’s and Siri’s of the world have ushered in a period of technological innovation usually reserved for the world of Star Trek. Activating lights, opening doors, and changing the temperature of our homes with nothing but a voice command. The consumer market has certainly been exploding with spending on IoT products at $749 billion last year. But the evolution of IoT products in the social housing sector has taken a slightly different direction.

The IoT revolution for social housing has focused on improving the day-to-day lives of residents through the clever use of technology – rather than simply attempting to make everything ‘smart’. Remote sensors detecting issues with properties, motion sensors detecting residents who might be in danger and technology that can help improve the quality of life of those that are the most vulnerable in our society. Whilst the social housing sector might be a little behind the consumer world in terms of the number of devices deployed, it is certainly not ignoring the innovation. With large rollouts starting to happen, the Internet of Things is not going anywhere.
