excellent concept, but the fundamental problem is that the primary financial return is usually in the data slurping - the hardware is often provided at cost or as a loss leader, or is at least cost-minimised to the bare limit, as it's only a means of obtaining the data. That's mainly why most IoT kit is such rubbish.
