Probably wouldn't be a bad idea to start exploring CF IoT use cases.

- the software license. obviously can't be charging a license fee for every device and it would have to run in minimized fashion on an array of IoT operating systems. Dump all the user facing features. That or you find a PhoneGap like option that turns it into JavaScript.

- would need a way to build the app and package it for install on devices with some params that make it unique like device serial number without user input of the product owner.

- need a way to test and simulate

- needs a local DB

- overall would have to think beyond the browser.

and those are just the basics

And I'll add you may not be that far away as many of these are the same requirements for mobile apps. Outside of platform support and licensing issues, your mobile features assume user input upon install. In IoT many times there is no user input after acquisition. You use the serial number as a way to identify the device and then use a mobile device to actually talk to/use/ and configure it.
