Solution Centred IoT Solutions
IoT Development Services
With over 20 years of experience in IoT development, our team of certified developers and industry experts can help you launch a new IoT initiative, upscale an existing app or embedded IoT solution, or help you integrate your new IoT technology into a legacy system or existing infrastructure.
With the understanding that there isn’t a “one size fits all” approach in the Internet of Things, our expert team will strategically choose the technologies that match your requirements as well as follow industry standards and approaches.
Our team will also tune your development strategy in line with your unique needs to deliver a robust, innovative high-quality IoT product on-budget and at optimal cost.
IoT App Development and Design
We design and develop IoT applications for a variety of operating systems including Android, iOS, Windows and cross-platform that can facilitate seamless access to data captured by a variety of smart devices across numerous industries.
IoT Software Architecture & Embedded Programming
Our expert team of IoT software engineers understand the complexities of IoT software including the platforms, embedded systems, partner systems and middleware that are responsible for data collection, device integration, real-time analytics and application and process extension within an IoT network. We can ensure that your entire software architecture including sensors, protocols, actuators, cloud services and layers are programmed in the most efficient way possible.
IoT Hardware Design and Development
IoT hardware encompasses edge or FOG devices via application gateways for remote access, devices for control, servers, routers and bridges, switches as well as sensors. In an IoT system, these hardware devices manage key tasks and functions such as system activation, action specifications, security, communication and detection to support-specific goals and actions. Our embedded software engineers have unique expertise in embedded processing, sensors, wireless and wired communication and can build you a bespoke embedded IoT system specified to your requirements.
IoT Firmware Development Integration
We develop and integrate embedded software and firmware (microcontrollers, processors, gateways, sensors) into a host of IoT, M2M(machine to machine), C2M(cloud to machine) and D2M(device to machine) devices. We’ll ensure that once everything is put together it is updating and running as anticipated. Our Internet of Things developers provide fully-fledged firmware development services to companies looking to control equipment and gadgets remotely, connect devices within IoT infrastructure and collect and process sensor data. We work with sensor manufacturers, OEMs and chip vendors to develop and deliver embedded firmware that supports a broad set of architecture and devices.
IoT Sensor Development
Sensors are an integral part of any IoT system as they measure physical data and convert these readings into a digital representation/signal that is sent to an actuator, which then performs an action in the real world/physical environment. The list of sensor types we work with is quite extensive, with each type detecting and measuring a variety of things including position, proximity, presence, occupancy, motion, velocity, acceleration, force, load, pressure, flow, acoustic, sound, vibration, humidity, moisture, light (LDR), machine vision, infrared radiation, temperature, chemicals, gas, smoke, electricity, electromagnetic energy, biomatter and more.
IoT Device Development
IoT devices are pieces of hardware, such as sensors, actuators, gadgets, appliances, or machines, that are programmed for certain applications and can transmit data over the internet or other networks. An IoT device is anything that has a microcontroller in it that performs a specific action as a result of communication. Whatever industry you are in, our team can design and develop IoT devices that suit your specific needs and requirements.
IoT Board Development
Our key development partnerships provide us with IoT prototyping kits and development boards that combine microcontrollers and processors with wireless chips and other components in a pre-built, ready-to-program package. We can provide rapid prototyping via this unique solution where required.
Experience and knowledge of many different types of IoT communication protocols, the solutions we provide include the protocols for your project. Each solution is bespoke dependent on specific requirements around speed, power consumption, data transfer, whether it is wired or wireless, and whether it is internal to the device or external to the device.
We’ve added a gateway to “The Things Network” infrastructure and can help you choose the best gateway network for your project, moving you closer to a SMART infrastructure.
Cloud Services for IoT
We work with existing cloud providers and seek to leverage that platform for you. Some of the popular ones we work with include SaaS(software as a service) and WaaS (Windows as a service) through Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services and Mender.

IoT Development Process
Our IoT development process consists of specific objectives and questions in each process phase. Learn more about our process below.
IoT Consultation and Strategy
- Our project managers will conduct an onboarding meeting to understand the project scope for your IoT solution in order to create a delivery schedule.
- Our developers will carry out feasibility studies to assess the practicality of your proposed solution.
- Our team will help you analyse legal and regulatory requirements that could impact your IoT project.
- Our team will provide initial recommendations on the best technology stack so your IoT solution is reliable, maintainable, scalable and secure.
IoT Hardware Design and Development
Our team will look at what products and materials are required for your IoT project as there is a lot that needs to be taken into account for us to verify the product works, improve it over time and scale it based on client requirements.
- Industry: There are specific sensors and requirements for certain industries and environments.
- Key Components: Board, Sensors, Actuators, Microchips, Microcontrollers

Frequently Ask Questions
Internet of Things
These are the most common questions we get from our Internet of Things clients.
What is the Internet of Things and how does it work?
The Internet of Things works in the following way:
- Sensors or devices collect data from the environment around them.
- The data collected by the sensors/devices sent into the cloud via a variety of communication and connectivity methods including cellular networks, satellite, WiFi, LPWAN, ethernet etc.
- Once the data is in the cloud, the software processes it based on rules the developer has designated.
- The software tells the sensor/device to complete an action without user interaction.
- The information is provided to the end-user in a digestible format i.e. an alert such as an email, text message or in another format via an IoT application informing the user of important information
Is the Internet of Things secure?
IoT devices collect data that may include sensitive personal information or business data. This is why businesses providing and receiving IoT development solutions need to ensure secure network protection. Working with professional IoT developers like Coderus means we can help manage and protect you from the following top IoT security risks:
- Lack of compliance on the part of IoT manufacturers
- Lack of user knowledge and awareness
- Device update management
- Industrial espionage and eavesdropping
- IoT device Hijacking
- Botnet attacks
- Lack of physical hardening
