The jury evaluates each product through two sessions. The first one is an overall view of the products. The second one re-evaluates the entries with more specific aspects in mind. The jurors make their decisions after having examined each product submitted in detail.

According to Red Dot, the emphasis for the smart product category will be on connectivity, interaction design and the system as a whole. Red Dot writes the following on the new categories: "
If a product receives a distinction in the “Smart Products” metacategory, this is proof that it successfully achieves the complex interaction between humans and technology in the age of Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things." We, the team at Plaato are humbled by these words. We are aspiring be at the front line of Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things.
