Testing IoT applications and smart devices
Smart homes, connected cars, and thousands of devices – with an estimated 127 connecting to the Internet every second – the Internet of Things (IoT) is a gamechanger. Especially from the end-user’s perspective. Apps must be native and easy to understand – and this is why testing is increasingly important.
How can Testbirds support you in optimizing your IoT applications and smart devices?
More and more devices are connected to the Internet
The Internet is integral to our daily lives and it’s turning many of our once manual, analog objects into smart, digitally-operated ones. Doors and locks, vacuums, heating and cooling systems, and much more can now run without our help and can even learn our habits and preferences. They are becoming more complex, connected, and relied upon. While we’re used to loading times of software, nobody wants to wait for objects that used to work immediately, such as the lock on our front door. In addition, we need these high-tech versions of day-to-day objects to work without an Internet connection.
High-tech versions of day-to-day objects need to be intuitive
As a consequence, IoT testing needs to be approached methodically and professionally. In this booming market, there are new aspects regarding quality that manufacturers must take into consideration. This includes ensuring that your digital products function in the real world as they do in laboratory environments and that they are secure, safe, reliable, and have no usability issues.

“The test showed that the app was not yet intuitive enough. Many navigation elements were not perceived as such(…)For us, of course, it was extremely important that the light bulbs arrive undamaged at the tester and come back just as intact after testing“Download Case Study
