From AdLink AI at the Edge to Helium's Hotspot gateway, CRN takes a look at the 10 hottest new IoT devices and products of 2019 that are making the connected world a better place.
The Helium Hotspot is a $495 gateway that serves as the critical building block for Helium's "LongFi" wireless network for IoT devices. The San Francisco-based startup is incentivizing consumers to purchase these gateways with the promise of receiving the startup's cryptocurrency, which is mined using the gateways. The Helium network, which is now active in more than 425 U.S. cities, claims to provide 200 times the range of Wi-Fi at 1/1,000th of a cellular modem. Companies using the Helium Network include Nestle, InvisiLeash, Agulus and Lime.
