Best crowdfunded 'Internet of Things' home projects of 2015

Written by Brendan Ihmig

We live in a hyper connected world and the 'Internet of Things' (IoT for short) is the network of physical objects (things) which are embedded with electronics (sensors and connectivity) and software which enables these objects to collect and exchange data - or simple put, 'connected things'. In the home environment, IoT devices/appliances range from simple 'smart' thermostates or lightbulbs to advanced home automation and security elements. Most IoTs are a natural progression of technology of everyday devices that make a lot of sense, some are entirely new devices or innovations, while others are frankly, senseless and outright weird.

Crowdfuding has certainly contributed to the number of IoT devices now available thanks to the creative way people have applied connected technology to solve everyday problems or to simply make life (in a very connected world) a little easier. 2015 saw a considerable amopunt of IoTs launded on varioues crowdfunding platforms and here I have selected those projects which I think are the best.

Please note that projects listed below are in no particular order and for more information on a particular projects you can simply follow the 'Read More' link for each.
