Our one-stop shop for IoT development expertise includes:

Embedded IoT solutions

We develop embedded software solutions (firmware, middleware, SDKs, device drivers, embedded human-machine interfaces) and tailor-made operating systems based on Linux Kernel and Android Open Source Project (AOSP) to bring your custom IoT solutions to life and integrate them into your existing IT infrastructure.

IoT cloud platforms & dashboards

We craft custom IoT cloud solutions for the big three cloud platforms–AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud–selecting the optimum tech stack and architecture pattern based on project requirements. We can also help you amass sensor data in the cloud, channel it to custom AI models, and visualize insights via cloud dashboards–enabling users to monitor and interact with connected devices through graphs, charts, and other UI elements.

IoT mobile app development

Our custom IoT development company develops mobile apps that can be used by consumers to access data collected by IoT devices. These apps can be built to run on a variety of devices including smartphones, smartwatches, laptops, or any connected display, and on different operating systems–including iOS and Android. We use state-of-the-art best practices to connect mobile apps with intelligent devices, strengthen IoT app security with biometric identification, and optimize app performance on the back end.

    IoT Development Process at CitrusDev

    Analysis and Research

    We begin the development process with an in-depth analysis of the client’s needs and goals, business specifics, infrastructure, and technologies used. Then, thorough research is conducted to estimate the scope and scale of the project and identify the tech stack and hardware needed–namely, device hardware, software, operating system, OS applications, and connectivity.

    PoC (proof of concept)

    The fastest and most economical approach, a PoC is usually used for a novel feature or technology to evaluate and prove its feasibility in terms of technology.


    A functioning model with limited features and functionalities that is used to demonstrate the concept to stakeholders and potential investors. It is usually represented in a clickable wireframe or hardware prototype. It is less expensive than developing an MVP yet still aids in reducing project risk.


    A releasable version of the product that contains enough core features to attract early adopters. It is made available to a limited audience in order to receive real, end-user feedback and attract additional investment.


    During the design stage, a conceptualization of the product is carefully developed according to the Project Specifications document created during the analysis and research stage. Our designers, like any other architects, build the entire structure of the project and provide the final prototype that will be used in the next steps of development.


    Once our IoT software development team receives the design structure, our developers begin the coding process, and all software components are implemented.

    The development of IoT cycle consists of four key stages:

    Connectivity and data transmission: Secure wireless control and connectivity are established using cellular, WiFi, RFID, GPS, Bluetooth, and others.

    Product hardware identification: Sensing elements as well as elements that convert electrical signals into physical outcomes are implemented.

    Vertical M2M application: The communication/exchange of data between two or more machines without the need for human interaction is enabled.

    Software and cloud integration: Web and mobile-based apps are built to control the functionality of products in real time.

    Testing and QA

    After the coding is complete, the modules are released to our quality assurance specialists for testing. The systems are thoroughly tested using our in-house IoT lab’s automation, penetration, and performance testing tools. Any defects are identified and assigned to developers for resolution. It is crucial to ensure that the devices can transmit sensitive information wirelessly and securely before going to market. In addition, our testers continuously refer to the SRS (Software Requirements Specification) document to verify the software is as per the client’s specifications.


    Rest assured–our professional IoT development services do not end after the release of the product. Because market and technology needs are constantly evolving, it is essential to continually monitor performance, efficiently detect and eliminate bugs, and keep the system up to date with the latest versions and trends. At CitrusDev, our customer service team is available nearly 24/7 to provide you with a specialist to resolve any critical issue–often within only a few hours of receiving the request.

    IoT solutions: questions and answers


    The Internet of Things meaning refers to a system of interrelated devices, each containing a computer chip that connects them together online through the Internet. These connected devices collect and share data with embedded electronics, software, sensors, and actuators. By connecting different devices together, IoT is able to compile information, optimize processes, improve efficiency, and explore new possibilities–transforming the way we live and work.


    IoT software development services are a set of end-to-end services that include advisory consulting for IoT planning, requirements engineering, architecture design, platform, and user app creation, testing, and support. CitrusDev offers IoT development services to deliver robust IoT solutions that optimize business processes, lower costs, and improve workplace safety.


    This is the engineering of apps for IoT devices, also referred to as machine-to-machine (M2M) app development. These cloud-based, software-as-a-service (SaaS) apps enable the exchange of information between devices, without any human intervention involved–enabling companies to gain more insight into their products by using analytics and data processing to create new business models, generate more revenue, and deliver improved customer experiences.


    IoT helps businesses to lower operating costs by optimizing the workflow via real-time production data. It can also improve customer experience by identifying shifts in customer behavior–often even before they happen! IoT can also increase worker productivity by relieving staff of mundane activities–freeing them to focus on more complex tasks. IoT provides endless opportunities for businesses to improve efficiency, transparency, and security and be competitive in today’s dynamic market.


    While there is really no limit to the type of industry that can benefit from the endless opportunities to improve efficiency, transparency, security, and resilience that IoT adds, the top industries that can benefit from the use of IoT are: agriculture, sustainable energy, finance, healthcare, medical field, education, manufacturing, retail, hospitality, and transportation/logistics.


    IoT is used in manufacturing, transportation, and utilities via volume sensors and other notification devices. IoT has also found significant use in agriculture via soil and crop regulation systems, urban infrastructure (smart cities), and home automation. Wearables, such as smartwatches, have brought IoT to the arms of millions across the globe. By the end of 2022, it is estimated there will be 14.4 billion IoT devices in use. This figure is expected to nearly double to 27 billion by 2025.
