The world surrounding us wants to be understood. We can record and analyze an enormous amount of different environmental values - and finally grasp them in a larger context.

Our IoT World has existed for a few months already, on which you can inform yourself about different aspects of IoT. There you will not only find the definition of what IoT is exactly and how different industries understand IoT, but also discover concrete areas of application for the Internet of Things, for example in the context of Smart City, Healthcare, or Environmental Monitoring. The last term is probably the most challenging subcategory of IoT, because there are overlaps with pretty much every industry. Smart Agriculture and CCTV can be as much a part of Environmental Monitoring as testing air quality or monitoring our Paessler HQ.

Below you will find an overview of the most exciting articles about all areas of environmental monitoring on our blog. And at the very end you can sign up for our dedicated IoT newsletter, which covers all areas of IoT in a structured and hands-on way.
