What is IOT?

By | May 5, 2017

According to Google, “The Internet of Things (IoT) is a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines, objects, animals or people that are provided with unique identifiers and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction.”

This is the new trending buzz word in technology these days. It’s all about having all of your devices connected online and accessible through your smart phone, tablet or computer. Even your car! Anything from your home security, to your lighting inside and outside your house, to your refrigerator, to your oven and many other things. Home automation is becoming more and more possible with more and more things.

From whatis.com: “The Internet of Things (IoT) is a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines, objects, animals or people that are provided with unique identifiers and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction.”

From Wikipedia: “The Internet of things (IoT) is the inter-networking of physical devices, vehicles (also referred to as “connected devices” and “smart devices”), buildings, and other items—embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and network connectivity that enable these objects to collect and exchange data.”

From Forbes: ‘The “Internet of things” (IoT) is becoming an increasingly growing topic of conversation both in the workplace and outside of it. It’s a concept that not only has the potential to impact how we live but also how we work. But what exactly is the “Internet of things” and what impact is it going to have on you, if any? There are a lot of complexities around the “Internet of things” but I want to stick to the basics. Lots of technical and policy-related conversations are being had but many people are still just trying to grasp the foundation of what the heck these conversations are about.’

What is your understanding of IOT and how do you see it helping you? Any ground-breaking ideas that you have?
