Hello friends! If you want to know about IoT (Internet of Things), then this article is for you. I will tell you in detail about IoT (Internet of Things). What is an IoT? How does this work? And know what its benefits are. So let’s start exploring What an IoT is.
What is an IoT (Internet of Things)?
Internet of Things, popularly known as IoT, is “a process or phenomenon in which all devices are connected to the Internet and communicate with each other.” These devices can also be normal devices or can be any smart Device. Let me give you some examples to clarify this concept.
Examples of IoT (Internet of Things) | Features of IoT (Internet of Things): –
If I will start talking about the features of IoT (Internet of Things), then this article will be so long. However, I will tell you some of its main features-
- Suppose you have an Automation house and you have placed a sensor on its roof. So that the door of your house will open automatically as soon as you go inside the house. But it is not that everyone will come and the door opens just depends on your Eye Retina or you have a device whose IP matches with the sensor on the roof.
- Suppose there is such a sensor in your room. As soon as you step inside the room, then the lights of the room will automatically ON or there will be fan or AC ON.
- You must have known about Microwave. Even though nowadays, every house uses Microwave. We can see this device in every house. But have you ever thought that when we put food in Microwave and switch it ON, then as soon as the food is heated enough then the microwave gets OFF by itself? These types of things happen because of IoT i.e. Internet of Things.
Let us now know where IoT technology is being used nowadays-
- Automation Home
- smart City
- Smart Grid
- Industrial Internet
- Connected Course
- Smart Retail
- Energy Engagement
- IoT Used Farms
- Poultry Farms etc. etc.
How does IoT (Internet of Things) work?
Actually, IoT (Internet of Things) works on IPV6 and this IPV6 means Internet Protocol Version 6 and each device has its own separate IP Address. IoT Devices also uses other types of technology such as Bluetooth, WiFi, etc. This will benefit in the way that, millions of devices will easily connect with each other without any interruption. And these will be the devices that we use every day such as TV, fans, AC, Coolers, Refrigerators, Microwave Ovens, etc.
Advantages of IoT (Internet of Things)
Do you know that – more than 11 billion IoT devices have been developed in 2018? And if we talk about 2025, it may reach approximately 50 Billion. So far, we are connected only to Google, Facebook, WhatsApp, YouTube, etc. But in the coming years, we will get connect to many new IoT devices.
Our clothes will have such sensors attached to them. These sensors will monitor our health parameters like blood sugar, blood pressure, etc. If these parameters will get any abnormality, your doctor will get its information about it.
So, in this article, you have learned what is IoT? How does this work? And after knowing that hopefully, you have no doubt about IoT. You can share this knowledge with your friends. You can get more description on the wiki.
