Amazon is expanding it's own 'Internet of Things' with a recent purchase of 2lemetry.

using its platform for commercial applications such as retail environments. It has also developed a facial recognition technology, which the company believes “can trigger environment changes and 'real-life' analytics based on the recognized age and gender of individuals.”

When it comes to integrating connected devices into applications, the acquisition could also let Amazon have an upper hand over public cloud competitors like Microsoft and Google.

By selling smart locks and thermostats and other pieces of home automation hardware, Amazon has been escalating its activities on the consumer side of the IoT.

In a consumer-focused service, 2lemetry technology could also be integrated with Amazon’s Echo connected-home assistant hardware.
