The Internet of Things: What Is It and Why Should You Care?

What is the Internet of Things?

When we think of all the things that will affect your day, what is it that we think about? How about “how am I going to automate my work”? Well the Adroit IoT company works in the field of IoT, but what is it? The Internet of Things (IoT) is the movement of physical devices to communicate wirelessly and store information online. Think of it as the next step in a network that connects humans and other physical devices to digital information via the internet. The devices connect and to the internet to exchange information. Examples of IoT devices are everything from your doorbell to your thermostat, your cars to your appliances and even your fridge. IoT devices allow different types of data to be shared between these physical devices. Data such as weather, location, sensor data and time are all stored on the cloud. The possibilities are endless and the range of possibilities are so varied, there is no way we can get them all into this post, but you will get the idea.

Who Uses It?

IoT is used by the following industries; Agriculture, Aquaculture like real-time water monitoring, Construction, Hospitality Industry and infrastructure (Big Data and SaaS IoT), OEMs Insurance Urban monitoring Water, soil and air quality monitoring Predictive maintenance Security/fire detection Surveillance.

How Does It Work?

Some examples of IoT.

FishGPS: is a high-speed internet-connected GPS tag that tracks the location and health of fish. It works to optimise fish for sales and gain valuable insights into fish stock. With FishGPS, you can manage your entire fish industry on a single platform. Planter: This sensor’s objective is to provide real-time monitoring of plant growth for better yield. The device is designed to receive signals from your plant and relay the data to a Cloud Platform. Urban Stream: This water monitoring system is an example of using wireless sensors to take environmental measurements of urban water systems. The Urban Stream project combines a smart irrigation system and solar power to deliver a device that is not only simple to install but also accurate and affordable.

How Can the Internet of Things Improve Your Business?
