What is IoT?
Internet of Things is a connected network of physical objects that are provided with unique identifiers embedded with electronics, software, sensors and network connectivity which enable objects to collect and exchange data. With the advancing technology, the Internet of Things is becoming the Internet of Everything. IoT consists of web-enabled devices that collect, send and act on data that is acquired from their surrounding environments with the help of embedded sensors and processors. These devices, at time, talk to other related devices. This process is called machine-to-machine communication and act on the information they get from one another. These devices do not need human instructions; they work on their own with the inbuilt technology.
The stats show that Internet of Things is rapidly spreading its roots in the society. It is projected that by 2020 the number of IoT devices is projected to exceed by 20 billion. The International Data Corporation predicts that the IoT spending will increase by a compound annual growth rate of 13.6% from 2017 to 2022.
How IoT is working in today’s time?
Security systems have been strengthened with IoT technology! Biometrics that work through voice, impression and optical recognition let us monitor and control home security from any place in the world via smart home accessories like security cameras, smart locks etc.
Energy management services can automatically activate events such as adjusting indoor temperature, lighting, shutting blinds as per the requirements and behaviour of the residents. All this helps in energy and water conservation.
To make sure that smart IoT devices work according to the rules of the owner, they come with artificial intelligence. With this, the home will observe the homeowner behaviour, identify trends and automate on the resident’s behalf. Artificial intelligence will learn and know your preferences regarding climate comfort, lighting, shower temperature and more. It will create an interactive home that will offer updates and advice in context with real-world events.
Today’s modern lifestyle demands quick access to health monitoring services. The IoT systems will help to connect the residents of the house with their neighbors, families and emergency responders. IoT sensors are used for fall detection, air quality measurement, monitoring refrigerator temperature and ensuring that stoves are turned off.
Internet of Things will fully control and manage human life in time to come. This is how the internet technology is evolving and bringing about a revolution.
