The Internet of Things (IoT) is not an elegant phrase, but for independent retailers, it is an important one. It refers the way in which computing devices embedded in everyday objects can communicate with each other. In shops, this could mean anything from shelf-edge labels to fridges, to vending machines to security cameras. For cameras, the IoT provides the connections necessary to record, analyse and identify known thieves who might enter your shop. Nick Fisher, chief executive of Facewatch, has high hopes the system could help his company become a major benefit to retailers of all sizes. He says: “Convenience stores are a significant market for us. They have high footfall, a problem with theft and there are not enough police to help stop it.”
