But for this it is important that everyone should follow the same standards. In line with this, the Government of India under the initiative of Department of Telecommunication (DoT) and Telecommunication Engineering Centre (TEC) has created the guidelines for M2M Communications.
In the conference held in Vigyan Bhawan, New Delhi, TEC with contribution from Smart24x7, introduced its report on M2M communications and claimed that this innovation would certainly change the way humans live.
According to the report, DoT would contribute in policy making and setting up of safety standards in India. These guidelines are very much instrumental and are used in the smart cities where wearable and the others safety and security applications and appliances are getting used in homes to standardized the behaviour of the devices as well as the responses provided to the victims. The thought is to cover all the smart cities under this innovation with initial focus on covering 100 smart cities.
According to CP Singh, the Founder of Smart Group, “Safety and security is paramount, and the government has taken various initiatives to safeguard its citizens. Safety & surveillance ensures a safe and secure environment, not just limited to video surveillance, emergency response, and technology enabled smart premise. Safety and security M2M applications are relevant to all of the domains such as home, medical and industrial. M2M has dramatically expanded the scope of available home security and safety products”.
