s one of its features. Known as “SmartThings Edge,” the platform allows devices connected to a smart home system to process information and execute some functions locally, without needing to send or receive information to and from the cloud.
We have often written and spoken about the benefits of edge computing in IoT systems and applications. As more companies begin to leverage the edge for IoT data collection and analysis, many have questions around the best tools, technologies, and platforms for implementation.
We have written about the importance of the edge for quite some time now, so we are very familiar with how important edge computing is for many IoT systems and applications.
