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 2020. 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!

GearBrain has gotten ahead of this massive wave by becoming one of the first web sites to provide reviews, news, advice and recommendations regarding these emerging connected devices and services. We help consumers learn which products and services are right for them, and how all these new products/services are connected. 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 and wireless thermostats. We help consumers learn how to save money on their energy bills, and to protect their home and car 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 4G service.

If looking for the 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 and the site through the typical means of a digital media company: display and video ads. We also generate revenue from Amazon and other type of affiliate 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.
