1 White Paper May-2013 Sentrollers and The Internet of Things By: Cees Links, Founder and CEO GreenPeak Technologies The new buzzword floating around the world is the Internet of Things, almost positioning the current Internet as already something from the past. What exactly is the Internet of Things and how will it affect your business? And what are sentrollers? Let s take a closer look and try to understand the drivers of this new development in communication and networking and what this means for the Internet as we know it today. The Changing Internet The current Internet, known as the Internet of People, has become a huge success since it really accelerated in the 90 s of the last century. Moreover, the current young generation is struggling to recognize that there was life before the Internet. Sharing information, distributing content in a way that is upsetting industries (i.e. YouTube replacing TV) and creating new paradigms for communicating (i.e. Skype, Twitter) and working together (integrated end-to-end logistical systems), there is no doubt that the Internet has had a profound effect on our lives. GreenPeak Technologies 2013 IoT & Sentrollers White Paper Page 1

2 The Internet has evolved to be the essential information sharing medium and communication backbone of our society from metropolitan citizens to jungle residents and farmers in the countryside. However, the Internet as we know it today is just a beginning, because more and more equipment is getting connected over and through the Internet. Today most of the (end) nodes on the Internet are people, using (smart) phones, tablets, laptops and computers. But this is changing: equipment and devices machines connected to the Internet (e.g. set-top boxes, cameras, cars) are starting to shift the balance away from people towards things. The future is clearly moving into a direction where the number of things connected to the Internet will overwhelm the number of connected people. Predictions range up to a factor of 100 to 1 or more: the Internet of People will transform into the Internet of Things. Sentrollers: Sensors, Actuators and Controllers There is another significant change happening at the same time. The current Internet is really about content sharing and distribution: high data rates and large amounts of data are driving the IT industry (from Gigabits/second to Terabytes), sparking new and exciting developments in cloud data storing and analysis. Many of the new devices connected to the Internet of Things will be different: these devices are usually sensors, controllers, actuators or combinations, going by the convenient all-encompassing term of Sentroller. For instance: a thermostat senses the temperature, compares this with a desired temperature and activates a heater or air conditioner, controlling, essentially sentrolling, the temperature. In practice sentrollers absorb and/or produce very limited amounts of information, but connectivity to the internet is essential. The Internet of Things will host the applications that know how to interpret the information provided by sentrollers and what action to be taken. The smarts of the Smart Home, Smart Energy, Smart Buildings, etc. actually reside in the cloud. The sentrollers are the end-nodes that will become the majority population of this Internet of Things. One sort of mini example of this is today s sophisticated digital automobile. From behind the steering wheel almost everything in the car can be checked ( sensed ) and controlled: the car is filled with sensors (for temperature, oil pressure, etc.) and controllers (from the steering wheel itself to little servos to adjust chairs and mirrors, etc.). The reason for all this automation is obvious: the driver must be able to understand, handle and control everything, while concentrating on safely driving on the road. The Internet of Things is replicating this concept on a much larger scale. GreenPeak Technologies 2013 IoT & Sentrollers White Paper Page 2

3 The Smart Home The starting point of the Internet of Things is clearly the Smart Home. In a way the digital car is a precursor of the Smart Home. In the Smart Home however, we are not sitting constantly in the same chair: we will have access to many sentrollers from different locations. In our home we already see many sentrollers in many places. Just looking around we can find thermostats, security control panels with motion sensors, our utility meters (electricity, gas, water), we have (many!) remote controls laying around the coffee table and everywhere else, and think about sun shades, lights and light switches, door locks, etc. In a way these are all sentrollers around the house. We probably can go on-and-on. Unfortunately today these are all generation-zero sentrollers: sometimes largely mechanical, and in most situations, stand-alone. In the real Smart Home all the devices are connected with the Internet. The role of these devices is also not tied to a single application. Because the devices are connected to the Internet they can play different roles under different circumstances. An example of this is a motion sensor in a room. In a normal condition a motion sensor will turn on the lights and the heating if someone is detected in the room. However, if the house-alarm is switched on, the motion sensor actually triggers an alarm if the motion sensor is detecting someone. This is when we really can start talking about a Smart Home: the sentroller is disconnected from a specific application and connected to a smart application running in the cloud of the Internet of Things. Utilities and Service Providers How will these sentrollers in the home become part of the Internet of Things? The main drivers are the utilities and the MSO s (the Multi-Service Operators), who see their current four mainstream business (telephone, TV/radio, internet and cellular) under pressure and who are looking to offer new services to their subscribers. Their new so-called fifth play offerings include home security, energy management, home care, and many others. The fifth play also includes devices that connect to the smart meter, the set-top box or the home gateway, and from there on to the internet enabling users to control their equipment and their energy bill with their smart phone. Looking at an average household today, people may be connected with between 5 and 10 devices (computers, laptops, smart phones, TV s) to the internet. In the next few years, this number will be easily dwarfed when maybe 100 sentrollers per household are getting connected to the Internet: the Internet of Things. GreenPeak Technologies 2013 IoT & Sentrollers White Paper Page 3

4 The Internet of Things Some interesting observations can be made regarding how the Internet of Things will change the internet as we know it. In the first place the stellar increase in the number of nodes will require an increase of the number of internet addresses available (each thing on the Internet of Things needs a unique identification number). This problem that has already been addressed by the IETF through the introduction of IPv6, succeeding IPv4. The other observation is that the Internet of Things will not likely (and definitely not initially) create a lot of additional network traffic. People have a tendency to produce or absorb a lot of data (e.g. a video, the higher definition the better!), but in comparison sentrollers are relatively minimal in data production or consumption (bits instead of Terabytes). This means that building the Internet of Things does not require a lot of extra work on the infrastructure of the internet: with the new IPv6 addressing scheme the current infra-structure is capable of handling the Internet of Things on top of the Internet of People. People may ask themselves however, whether the growing dependency on the Internet not only for content, but also for sentrollers, is going to put higher demands on the security and reliability of the Internet. Definitely more work needs to be done to avoid the growing critical dependency on the Internet that could cause massive disruption of the society. ZigBee The next interesting question about the internet of Things is: how will it be built up, and what role will existing wired, and in particular wireless technologies be playing. The most challenging part is how to get a device on the network (on the internet): the access technology itself. What technologies and service models are required to enable cost effective connectivity? And do devices need roaming, that is, do they move around while staying connected to the Internet. In this last respect it is probably good to notice that Things by nature are more static than People, so roaming may be less of a requirement. At the same time cost is a serious requirement: the cost of connecting a Thing may quickly outpace the cost of the thing itself. In this respect it is also interesting to notice that the requirement for high data rate is replaced by the requirement for a long battery life. For instance most of the WiFi devices today are connected to the mains power, and if not, say with a laptop or a smart phone, everyone has his own regular routine to make sure the batteries of the devices are regularly charged. The world of sentrollers however is different. Connecting sentrollers to the mains power can be cumbersome: expensive wiring, expert installation. But 100 devices in your home with a battery life of one year means that you have to change on average two batteries every week worse: every week there are two sensors that stopped functioning and need attention. So, for sentrollers, the data rate is of low priority compared to the device s energy consumption. This means that the battery life of the device preferably should exceed its life! GreenPeak Technologies 2013 IoT & Sentrollers White Paper Page 4

5 ZigBee is an open standard like WiFi that describes the protocols for data-communication of sentrollers in the 2.4 GHz worldwide one frequency band worldwide. The ZigBee name is owned by the ZigBee Alliance, an industry group with more than 400 members, including most of the large semiconductor companies, who make chips for building products that will be connected to the Internet of Things. The ZigBee standard describes the radio protocols (based on IEEE ) as well as the network layers and application profiles. This makes it possible for devices of different vendors to interoperate in a way as expected by the end-user. ZigBee has not been introduced with the same fanfare with which Apple introduced WiFi and gave the acceleration of the Internet of People a major boost with the Apple Airport, the first home router/access point in the industry. But the reality is that many utilities and large operators worldwide, led by Comcast in the USA and their Xfinity program, are equipping their set-top boxes and gateways today with ZigBee, effectively building a corner stone for the Internet of Things in every home. For the cable operators, one financial justification comes from the standardization of remote controls (replacing infra-red with radio technology) thereby reducing service calls. But considering the fact that a remote control essentially is a sentroller, it effectively implements the Internet of Things already in a cost effective way, preparing for the roll-out of new smart home services, like security, energy management and home care. GreenPeak Technologies 2013 IoT & Sentrollers White Paper Page 5

6 Comparing This may be a good point to summarize comparing the Internet of People with the Internet of Things. Internet of People Internet of Things Devices Computers: smart phones, tablets, laptops, computers, TV s, game consoles, etc. Sentrollers: smart meters, thermostats, motion sensors, remote controls, etc. Characteristics Main Function Content sharing and distribution Sense and controls Key Requirement High data rate Long battery life Roaming Dynamic roaming Static (roaming) Access Technologies Outdoor/on the road GSM/3G/LTE Neul At home/in the office WiFi (IEEE ) ZigBee (IEEE ) Volume Average 5-10 units per household and growing Emerging, growing 100 units per household and beyond However, putting the two Internet s side-by-side does not mean that there will be two Internet s. The existing Internet of People will easily absorb the Internet of Things with the existing infrastructure, once the transition to IPv6 is completed. Beyond the Smart Home As mentioned the Internet of Things starts at the Smart Home, driven by utilities and MSO s and it will not stop there. The logical next step is from the Smart Home to Smart Buildings, and a lot is already happening in this space, maybe not directly connected to the Internet of Things, but that will be just a small step further. Beyond the Smart Buildings there are already many ideas floating around about Smart Cities. One interesting example of a simple, but effective application: why should a street light burn when there is no traffic? With the increasing pressure to conserve energy, this application can be a small, but very effective contribution. All that is required is a motion sensor in a street lamp and an effective standard infra-structure that interprets the data that comes in. GreenPeak Technologies 2013 IoT & Sentrollers White Paper Page 6

7 Also industries, logistics, agriculture, etc. will benefit from the wave of sentrollers that is currently rolling out for the Smart Home and will multiply the number of devices that get connected to the Internet, populating the Internet of Things. Summarizing It is clear that the Internet of Things is starting with consumers in the house implementing the Smart Home. The wireless access technology for the Smart Home is ZigBee, the open worldwide IEEE standard, equivalent to WiFi. Where WiFi stands for reliable high data rate connectivity, ZigBee stands for a long battery life. In the same way as WiFi today is synonymous for wireless Internet of People, ZigBee is becoming synonymous for the wireless Internet of Things, making it possible for any-thing to seamlessly connect to the internet any place, any time and without worries about power or battery life. The Internet of Things will further enable new services that will make our lives safer and more secure, more convenient and comfortable. The Internet of Things will also help to manage our costs, in particular regarding energy consumption, as it allows us to reach out to any device in our home from any place in the world. In this way the arrival of the Internet of Things will fuel a new industry of devices and services that will rapidly outgrow the current Internet of People and our dependency on interconnectivity will grow even stronger.
