Something that has become more obvious to be while writing material in the Internet of Things space is that there's an invisible barrier stopping a lot of people from executing on their awesome IoT project Ideas.

The common things I hear

  1. I don't know how to do Electronics, and that seems pretty crucial...

  2. I'm not sure what to buy, or where to buy it from...

  3. I hear about security issues, I don't want to build something that's vulnerable to attacks.

  4. I'm just not interested

IoT devices are expensive, so you need to have a complete package and confidence you aren't going to break the equipment you just bought you need to really have a plan with what you're going to do with it.


These days? Time mostly. Unless you have stuff already, by the time I’d want to order anything the will is gone; let alone waiting for the actual package to turn up.


To have IoT device eqipped with cellular network is not cheap for long run.
