  • Advantages of IoT
           As the saying, “Everything connects to everything else” IoT or Internet of things can be very much related to it as IoT’s main enabling factor is the integration of several technologies and communications solutions. In IoT, the hardware is connected to the internet to perform various functions.
In today’s scenario, many such operations are getting implemented as this is proving out to be advance, more secure technology. Internet of things is a communication paradigm that envisions future in which the objects of everyday life will be fully occupied with microcontrollers transceivers for digital communication, and suitable protocol stacks that will make them able to communicate with one another and with the users, becoming an integral part of the Internet. IoT can be used in almost every domain from household to big organizations. It can be used for  home automation, industrial automation, medical aids, mobile healthcare, elderly assistance, intelligent energy management and smart grids, automotive, traffic management, and many others.
IoT is generally used for those devices that are incapable of having internet connections and which can communicate with the network without the interference of human action.

Examples of Internet of Things:

       A simple light bulb  in a room that can be turned on and off through smartphone is a simple example of IoT. Also,  a door that automatically opens after it recognizes the person through image recognition is an example of IoT. An IoT device could be as fluffy as a child’s toy or as serious as a driverless truck. A smartwatch,  a fitness band which helps in keeping track of some of our vitals can be considered as everyday example of IoT.

Advantages of IoT:

1. Communication between devices

Iot enables communication between devices which is known as a machine to machine communication this helps in communication between one or multiple hardware devices and one or many software devices.

2.  Automation

Due to physical objects getting connected and controlled digitally and centrally with wireless infrastructure, there is a large amount of automation and control in the workings. Without human intervention, the machines are able to communicate with each other leading to faster and timely output.

3. Monitoring

One of the best advantage of IoT is monitoring as it helps to monitor the current situation and helps us understand the situation better so that we can act accordingly keeping in mind the future perspective.

4. Time

The time that is taken by these devices are far less than the time compared to the manual work. Passing of information and taking quick decision decrease the amount of time taken to perform a particular function.

5. Better Quality of Life

All the applications of this technology culminate in increased comfort, convenience, and better management, thereby improving the quality of life.
