“In the inaugural year of the IoT Global Awards it is inspiring to see so many exciting Internet of Things products already in service,” says Jeremy Cowan, Editorial Director of IoT Global Network, the site behind the Awards. “We have been truly impressed by the hard work and ingenuity that has gone into so many IoT applications submitted to us by organizations worldwide. The Shortlisted Entries met our strict selection criteria and will now be assessed by an unrivalled Judging Panel of IoT Experts.”

“We are honored to be recognized by the IoT Global Awards as one of the most innovative IoT products in the Connected Consumer and Smart Home, and Connected Health or Wearable Tech industries,” said Jacob Babcock, CEO, NuCurrent. “As we move toward a world filled with a large number of IoT devices distributed all around us, the means to power these devices is becoming a huge problem.
