What is Internet of Things (IoT)? And how does it influence in Everyday lives?

World is shrinking day by day simultaneously with technology expansion. From the invention of the telephone by Alexander Graham Bell to smartphone creation, communication sector has drastically changed terming the world as electronically controlled “One Global Village”. To make the world more concrete and compact, technology revived its techno cells towards the Internet of Things (IoT).

Internet of Things (IoT) today has become a hot topic willing to be experimented by every individual. The concept was designed and laid out in a motive to save human time with quality output. The computing concept describes the idea of physical object being connected to internet and other devices to carry out task.


What is Internet of Things (IoT)?

Introduced by Kevin Ashton in 1999 IoT according him was an internet system which connects the world through storage data and sensors. While explaining in a simple manner, Internet of Things (IoT) connects through internet broadband including cell phones, washing machines, lamps, air conditioner, television or any devices which operates through sensors and internet. IoT is surely a gigantic network connecting things.

Before terming your device as IoT friendly, your device must have 7 essential features of sensors, processors, cost-effectiveness, internet connectivity, energy efficiency, quality and security.


How do IoT influence and impact on everyday life?

IoT plays an important role in being a part of your day to day activity. From early morning till your bed time, IoT can be a part of your routine life. For example, your alarm clock waking you up at 5:00 am and notifying your coffee maker to brew your coffee for you. Your car navigator on hand identifies the traffic scenario and navigates you towards clean route to reach your work station. While returning home, you AC is activated to keep your room cool. From home to workplace IoT has started to be a part of human life.

On a wide sense, IoT can be applied on technologies introduced as smart technology accepting sensors and internet connectivity. To be honest, the invention has eased our lives but at a same time has reduced our physical activity, making us lazy day by day and technology depend. Yet, every time any technology gets launched we simply get amazed by its triggering features making us wonder about its possibilities pushing us more to make use of it.
