The Internet of Things Is Changing The Way We Live

The Internet of Things (IoT) has emerged as the biggest wave in the development of the internet. Experts are predicting there will be over 50 billion "things" or devices connected worldwide by 2023. We are already seeing the start of this explosive growth with new, innovative products coming to market every day, connecting watches to smartphones to tablets to laptops/desktops to the home and to the car. However, the IoT is about more than just connecting devices. It's a lifestyle that will change the way we live and work! it will also help save energy and money.

GearBrain has been ahead of this massive wave for years by becoming one of the first companies to provide insights on how all these new connected devices work together. We offer a platform with reviews, news, advice, and an innovative recommendation engine for all connected devices and services. Whether you are interested in smart home systems, fitness trackers or augmented reality headsets, our platform is designed to help you find the devices that are compatible and offer an automated problem-solving platform. We help consumers pick the best products and services for their home, car, and/or workplace, both for today and for tomorrow. For example, we provide reviews on products such as smart locks, virtual reality headsets, fitness trackers, DIY smart home security systems, wearables, and wireless thermostats. We help consumers learn how to save money on their energy bills and to protect their homes and cars with easy-to-setup new Internet-enabled devices. There is information and projects for do-it-yourselfers, too. You can even learn how to turn your car into a connected car by adding 5G service.

If you are looking for a place to go for a deep dive into one of the most important categories for all of IoT, security, then GearBrain is the site for you. Many consumers need to know how to prevent hackers from accessing their connected devices. We show consumers the latest security options for their “things" and provide an opportunity for them to buy the best solution for their device and/or network.

How We Make Money

GearBrain generates revenue from a variety of sources. We support ourselves through the typical means of digital media: display and video ads. We also generate revenue from Amazon and other types of affiliate marketing links. You will see these links spread out through an article. If you click on one of these links and buy the product/service, GearBrain will receive a commission.

It's important for you to know these links do not influence the content we create. All of our writers/reviewers conduct their research, test products, and determine ratings without the influence of any of these links. In fact, the affiliate links are not added to the article until after the piece has been completed and posted to the site. Therefore brands can not buy rankings or positive reviews.

GearBrain is committed to helping consumers understand how all these new products/services work, which ones connect to each other, and assist in building and buying the best products/services that meet their new connected lifestyle. Soon we will be launching the first-ever IoT configurator. This unique platform will allow users to find compatible products based on the connected devices they own. For instance, if you own a smart home security system and want to find smart locks that are compatible with your system and can be controlled in one app, our IoT configurator will provide you with a list of smart locks along with in-depth product information on each device. You will also be able to open an account and store your device information for free. This will help when you need to get instant access to your product's owner's guides and user manuals or even call customer service for help in troubleshooting. it's your one-stop shop for help with any connected device.
