What is Standalone?

 , updated on July 31, 2016
Standalone is the ability of a technology to work independently without being connected. This usually means a technology designed to work without an internet connection but can also refer to other types of connection such as a self-powered building that doesn't need to connect to a grid.

Standalone as a Feature

In many cases, consumers view standalone capabilities as a feature. Technologies that are integrated with centralized services may require users to agree to complex and restrictive legal agreements. Connected devices may also exposed users to security incidents, privacy issues and downtime due to connection loss.
