How can RedCat build it?

From Scratch

When the business model is clear, and business goals and limitations are defined RedCat team visualizes and implements it within a specific technology set.

Migration

If there is a need to upgrade or change product technologies we can assist with Data Migration, Reverse Engineering, or partial reuse of the existing code after a Technical Audit.

Enhancing

For existing products we offer dedicated engineers who work exclusively and under Client's management.

Questions You may have

RedCat:

The cost of developing an IoT app varies widely depending on several factors such as the complexity of the app, the number of devices it needs to integrate with, and the specific functionalities required. At RedCat, a basic IoT application might start from around $50,000, while more complex projects involving advanced features like AI integration, large-scale device connectivity, and extensive data processing could go upwards of $100,000.

To give a specific example, a straightforward IoT application for fitness might cost around $40,000 to $60,000, considering nice UI/UX, data collection for future and risk buffer for an IoT prototype integration process.

However, an industrial IoT application involving complex machine learning algorithms for predictive maintenance and large-scale sensor networks could cost significantly more, given the increased complexity and the need for robust security measures. Those project are literally 1+ year, with a team of minimum 3-5 full-time people, which results in $150 000+ per year. Each project is evaluated on its own requirements, and we provide a detailed cost breakdown after understanding the client’s specific needs and objectives.

RedCat:

IoT, or the Internet of Things, refers to the network of physical objects embedded with sensors, software, and other technologies for the purpose of connecting and exchanging data with other devices and systems over the Internet.

At RedCat, we specialize in IoT app development, focusing on creating applications that enable seamless interaction and data exchange between these interconnected devices. For instance, an IoT application could allow users to remotely control smart home appliances or gather real-time data from industrial sensors. But most of our portfolio are fitness and health devices, and some driver’s behavior tracking devices, or size measurement tools.

The advantages of IoT are numerous and impactful. It enables automation and control, providing users with the ability to remotely monitor and manage their devices. This leads to increased efficiency and convenience, as seen in smart homes or smart city solutions. IoT also facilitates better data collection and analytics, allowing businesses to gain insights into user behavior, improve operational efficiency, and make data-driven decisions. For example, an IoT solution in agriculture can monitor soil moisture and optimize irrigation, leading to better crop yields.

RedCat:

Nope and nope.

RedCat:

Yes, and it seems you know what you plan to do with this data. If we are talking about some ML integration – there are a couple of proven solutions for that. If you plan to export or sell this data – let us know, then it’s another approach. If it’s a measurement for measurement, or you haven’t decided yet – welcome to our business analysis specialist, he will help to create a data structure and business rules in a most sagacious way.

RedCat:

It’s a headache, but possible. And also, it doubles the time for this integration
