A classic IoT application, Connected IO devices provide secure and instant access to vending machines everywhere. "VM, phone home" , the original IOT use case, allows vending machines to offer choices and self-service to consumers. By adding connectivity back to the vendor, the vending machine itself becomes a smarter device. Inventory levels, tampering, and environmental problems is mission critical information sent to the vendor in order to enhance value back to the customer.
A Connected IO modem can enable this connectivity, sending data in both directions over a cellular network. A Connected IO router can combine the ethernet or Wi-Fi data from multiple vending machines, servicing an area such as a stadium section, hotel floor, food court, and many other similar places. Connect a vending network to the Internet to increase productivity and profitability.
