The word IoT has been creating a lot of buzz in tech world. If you are a tech savvy, you might have heard this word earlier.
IoT simply is the short form of Internet of Things in which you provide the internet connection to daily life devices to give rise to a new network. The same network can be controlled with your smartphone.
The phrase Internet of Things was brought into the usage in 1999. But no one ever believed that it would be possible to turn a light in your home by sitting on your office chair. Now it became possible without much effort (for us).
Internet of Things; What Really is it?
Internet was invented by G. Vinton Serf as a pathway of information. He just considered it as a medium to transform immense quantity of data in a short time.
But now we are here, talking about IoT; most probably one of the innovative technology of this millennium (I can say that without any doubt).
Internet of things needs a lot of things to work out. You should have a network of devices you want to control, a range of sensors and electronic equipments as well.
By 2020, there will be more than 50 billion IoT devices on the earth. As of now, we are all being aware of this technology and its infinite possibilities.
Home automation is the pretty easiest you can ever do with IoT technology. I do have moments when I figure out that the light in my bathroom hasn’t been turned off yet. So, I have to get into the bathroom to turn off the same even after completing the bath.
But with IoT, you will be provided with a well equipped bulb and a mobile app. The mobile app can be used to control the light. Not only the bulb, you can control every single device in your home remotely, with the help of IoT technology.
There are broader applications in media, environmental monitoring, energy management, medical and health care, transportation and large scale deployments as well.
Let the era of IoT begin.
